EDN WEEKLY - The news service preparing you for the coming documentary week
ISSUE #46: 23 - 28 December 2018:
Happy Holidays to you from the EDN Staff

Dear Reader,

A calm and hopefully peaceful holiday season lies ahead of us and we hope that things are slowing down for you, too, so that we can all replenish our energy. When looking back on our 2018 activities, we do so with a sense of joy and satisfaction: we've seen many filmmakers develop and pitch their projects at one of the many EDN workshops and witnessed the start (or continuation) of fruitful relationships between producers, commissioners and people who can help finance the many good stories that are out there and need to be told.

It's all about networking, creating opportunities and bringing the right people to the table, and that's a quint-essential part of our mission. And although we consider it largely accomplished, there's always new content, new filmmakers and new talents that need to get access to the market with their wonderful projects. And we look forward to continue bringing together documentary filmmakers and potential funders in 2019.

We hope you'll have a relaxing, pleasant holiday season and we very much look forward to seeing you again in the new year!

The EDN Team
