The eurasiadoc program

List of countries concerned

Armenia – Belarus – Georgia – Kazakhstan – Moldova – Russia – Turkey – Ukraine – Kyrgyzstan – Uzbekistan – Tajikistan

Launched in November 2011, thanks to the support of the European Union and the Rhône-Alpes Region, the Eurasiadoc program was first implemented in the Caucasus, Central Asia and Russia from 2012 to 2014, before being focus on Armenia, Georgia and Turkey. Since 2018, the program aims to extend again to a larger Eurasian zone by reconnecting with Russia while integrating Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus. This dynamic has made it possible to create or strengthen several local structures that have become, over the years, regular partners of the program, in particular Siberian Studio of Independent Cinema in Krasnoyarsk (Russia), Opyodoc (Georgia), IFCA - Independent Filmmakers Community of Armenia, Creative Lab (Ukraine) and FilmAmed - Diyarbakir Documentary Film Festival (Turkey).

Each year, Eurasiadoc relies on:
- national or regional workshops dedicated to writing and developing creative documentary film projects.
- international co-production forums that envisage committing the films developed in the workshops to a production via a network of partners in the relevant countries as well as throughout Western Europe.

Since its creation, Eurasiadoc has organised 27 writing workshops in 6 different countries and 8 international co-production markets in Armenia. In June 2020, 37 films were produced, while 29 films are undergoing production.

Workshops took place in 2023 in Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan and the next Eurasiadoc co-production meetings are planned in Almaty, Kazakhstan in the first week of June 2024.
