The second edition of KineDok is entering its second half, and so far there has been a great number of event-based screenings with film directors and interesting guests for Q&A's organized. The topics that were discussed by the guests and their audience were very diverse and covered not only the methods of the current creative documentary filmmaking but also practical questions of campaign making, psychological and sociological issues and many more.
Within the East Doc Platform programme organized for the film professionals during the One World International Film Festival, KineDok hosted an extra screening in Vinohrady Brewery that was open for public. The film 6 degrees, a road movie through different places, lifestyles and characters inspired by a theory that every person in the world can be reached through 6 personal connections was introduced by Filip Remunda and more than 100 people took part in the discussion with the director Bartosz Dombrowski after the screening, debating about choosing the right character for the documentary and not giving up when everything seems to be lost.
Another screening of the film 6 degrees in Svět HUB was followed by a lecture and discussion with social media analyst Pavel Trejbal, who explained the 6 degrees of separation theory (which is the main driving force of the film) and its practical use within the internet but also when searching for a job.
Croatian director Igor Brezović attended the screening of Hungarian film Drifter, a close-up portrait of a rebellious race car-driving teen coping with the twists and turns of life in rural Hungary, in the Greta Galery in Zagreb. The audience took the opportunity to meet the director of the film Gábor Hörcher and the DOP Kristóf Becsey.
Gábor also visited the Romanian KineDok screening in Truda town in Cluj County and talked with the audience about self-fulfilment and relations between parents and teenagers in Gólya club in Budapest. You can read the KineDok interview with Gábor here.
