Moving Docs

Moving Docs brings powerful films to screens big and small – films you may never be able to see otherwise.

We enable a selection of European documentaries to cross borders and reach new audiences all over Europe.

These are films with an impact. They make you see the world differently. And they may even change your mind.

Moving Docs is the very first initiative of its kind, powered by our local and national partners across Europe, managed by the European Documentary Network, and supported by Creative Europe.

    Focus on Greece: Europa Distribution examines the independent film distribution situation in the country

    by Jesús Silva

    Εuropa Distribution continues its tour around Europe, in order to shed some light on the situation of independent film distribution across the continent. After their recent articles on countries such as Russia and LithuaniaIceland and the UK, they headed south to report on the individual aspects of the Greek market, and the challenges faced by its professionals. The members of Europa Distribution operating in the Hellenic Republic offered a common portrait of a highly competitive market, which has undergone significant changes due to the impact of the last economic crisis in 2008. A large number of releases, a great sensitivity to the weather, a limited amount of windows and a constant search for new business models are just some of the main traits of the film distribution market in Greece.

    Art as a mediator of communication - Interview with the Ukrainian artist Alevtina Kakhidze following the screening of The Distant Barking of Dogs

    As a part of the Travelling Docudays UA, in cooperation with the Biennale of Trust in Lviv, the festival held a screening of The Distant Barking of Dogs and a discussion attended by Alevtina Kakhidze. In her art, the artist, just like the film’s director Simon Lereng Wilmont, addresses the experience of a person who lives in the occupied territories. For example, in her project The Story of Klubnika Andreyevna, or Zhdanovka, Alevtina uses texts and images to speak about her mother’s life. She also works with children as a tolerance ambassador for the UN Development Programme in towns and cities near the separation line, establishing dialogue in the language of art. Before the film screening, we talked about trust, experience and tolerance.
