The Georgian Panorama is dedicated to Georgian documentaries produced during the last 25 years in Georgia.

From the independence of Georgia to the first steps as a young democracy, every single period will be reflected through films: from the early nineties until today. Filmmakers of different generations will present their work and will discuss with the audience after the screenings.

This is the section that will connect film professionals, civil society, decision makers and the general audience.

In the format of round table meetings and post-screening discussions, this section will frontline strong and weak points of Georgian film industry. Georgian directors, in turn, will get the feedback from internationally renowned invited experts.

At CinéDOC Young we will screen films dealing with topics important for the development youngsters: from films about children to films on ecology issues, democracy, human rights, gender issues, etc.

Before the festival, the CinéDoc team will run a campaign in schools, where they will present the topics of the films screened in the framework of CinéDoc Young. As an ‘assignment’ pupils will do an artwork or write an essay about specific issues. Their materials will be exhibited at the festival venue.

For CinéDOC Young we intend to cooperate with schools and school teachers. Each morning two different school classes will attend the screenings together with their teachers. The discussions after the screenings will be moderated by children psychologists, teachers and young civil society activists.
