Dear friends,

We would like to invite you to participate in a new and ambitious project, 
named EAST SILVER - Central and Eastern European documentary film fair. The 
project will be a part of the prestigious 8th year of the International 
Documentary Film Festival Jihlava, the only one of its kind in Central 
Europe, which will take place between October 26 and 31, 2004.

The objective of the EAST SILVER project is to provide a detailed mapping 
of Central and Eastern European documentary films produced in years 2003 
and 2004 by means of establishing a functional and open video library and 
to present this library to as many film professionals as possible - be they 
TV stations representatives, festival people or film 
producers/co-producers. The video library, which will be fully accessible 
during the course of the festival, will be accompanied by an easy to use 
and carefully prepared catalog.

This project will be closely followed by EAST SILVER CARAVAN, a companion 
project within which the video library will be offered to our partner 
festivals, making it possible for hundreds more film professionals to 
discover your newest documentaries.

The East Silver and East Silver Caravan projects aim to be a strong 
incentive for independent producers, film professionals and critics. We 
believe that you will help us and that we all will succeed in building a 
unique source of remarkable movies from Central and Eastern Europe. Please 
feel free to forward this letter to any of your colleagues who might want 
to take part in these projects.

         Looking forward to cooperating with you

East Silver Manager
