Latest updates from the European Documentary Network
EDN WEEKLY - The news service preparing you for the coming documentary week
ISSUE #1: January 15 - 21, 2018
Apply for the dok.incubator workshop 2018!

Dear Reader,
The EDN team is back on post and ready for another year of serving the documentary community. As you can see on the website, our activity list is already heavily loaded and there will be many occasions to meet with us at different locations in Europe. EDN members will be pleased to read that we’ve started shipping the EDN Financing Guide 2018: your copy should arrive very soon.
I feel I should warn you that I might become something of an annoying boy, for I will regularly use this newsletter to remind the readers about the "Media and Society - Documentary in a Changing Media Landscape” initiative and more specifically about the online survey that is still open for your input. A big thanks to all who already took part in it. To those who did not participate yet: please make the effort.

I can’t underline strongly enough how important this survey (and the whole initiative) is for the European documentary community. Yes, it takes time to answer the questions and I am aware that you’re very busy. However, if you want EDN to defend your interests, we need to know what we’re talking about and who we represent. No matter who you are, where you’re located, how many documentaries you’ve made, high or low budget, how experienced you are, whether you’re an EDN member or not… you’re part of the community and that brings along a certain responsibility. Can we count on you?
Don’t hesitate to get in touch this year and for now I’m wishing you a pleasant weekend,
Paul Pauwels / Director EDN
