Latest updates from the European Documentary Network
EDN WEEKLY - The news service preparing you for the coming documentary week
ISSUE #23: 30 June - 6 July 2019. This edition is sponsored by:
Modern Times Review — The International Documentary Magazine

Dear Reader,

We hope the recent heat wave across most parts of Europe didn't have too much of a negative impact on your creativity and inspiration. This week, at Sunny Side of the Doc in La Rochelle, most visitors - including ourselves - were happy to have found hand-held fans in the SSD welcome bags and we made use of them almost constantly in order to cope with the soaring temperatures. But that didn't prevent market participants from doing business as usual at Sunny Side and meeting lots of broadcast representatives, distributors, sales agents and other players in order to explore new avenues for potential collaborations. It was good to be there and we would again like to thank the participants of the EDN Umbrella Stand - and many others we met - for the pleasant experience. Apart from that, we have just published an overview of festival deadlines coming up in July including DOK Leipzig, Viennale, Warsaw Film Festival and many more. If you have suitable films that are ready for submission, you might want to consider these events for your festival strategy. 

Have a nice weekend,
The EDN Team
