1.You collaborate with different autumn festivals. What is this collaboration about? What is DAFilms – is it a cooperative or a support mechanism for the film community?
«The online platform DAFilms (Doc Alliance Films) is powered by the so called Doc Alliance, a creative network of 7 key European film festivals: CPH:DOX, Doclisboa, Millennium Docs Against Gravity, DOK Leipzig, FIDMarseille, Ji.hlava IDFF and Visions du Réel.»
«Our main aim is to bridge the gap between curation and distribution. Together with the festivals, we aim to support the diversity of documentary film and its promotion. In practice we present regular curated programs focused on films from the Doc Alliance festival selections, which we promote to our audiences across the globe. Our Alliance festivals, on the other hand, offer the DAFilms subscription to their local audiences, giving them the possibility to watch festival films anytime and anywhere.»
