Dear Reader,

The winners of the 59th Krakow Film Festival have recently been announced and we're delighted to find "Once Aurora", directed by Stian Servoss and Benjamin Langeland, among the awarded films. The title was awarded best documentary musical film and nominated as "Golden Heynal" laureate. We're particularly happy about this due to the fact that "Once Aurora" previously participated as a project in the EDN Co-Production Workshop Twelve for the Future. It's always a great experience to see how projects evolve, from the early stages as a project at a workshop or pitching forum, and then seeing how the completed films go on to enter the festival circuit and, in this case, receive awards and thus recognition for the hard work that the project team put into the production of the film. Apart from that, we will soon be organising the EDN Online Co-Production Seminar as part of our Docs in Thessaloniki Pitching Forum. The session will provide a select group of participants with advice on co-production opportunities throughout Europe so that their projects can gain further traction on the market. We very much look forward not only to the session itself but also to its impact on the participating projects in the further stages of development.

Have a good weekend,
The EDN team
