Latest updates from the European Documentary Network
EDN WEEKLY - The news service preparing you for the coming documentary week
ISSUE #6: 10 - 16 February 2019
Deliver Your Message to the Heart of Documentary Professionals
Dear Reader,

It's that time of year again where we have the pleasure to send you our warmest greetings from Berlin! Alongside the Berlinale, we're co-organizing the DocSalon in partnership with EFM - European Film Market. Needless to say, it's one of those major gatherings of the documentary world where a quite decent venue (in this case the Gropius Bau) is transformed not only into a lively doc market, but also into an impressive platform for exchange, partnerships, consultations and innovation.

If you're in Berlin, you might want to attend the EDN Presentation "Media and Society: Reality Check on Documentary Financing in Europe" on Sunday, 10 February from 10:00-11:00am at EFM/DocSalon. In addition, we'll be offering EDN consultations for doc professionals in the period 8-12 February on a daily basis. So please don't hesitate to drop by and we'll be happy to have a chat. And we'll of course also be organizing our annual EDN Networking Dinner during the Berlinale, where many of our members come together, not only to discuss all things "documentary", but also to relax in a nice atmosphere with some really good food. This, and all of the above, suggests that it's time well spent and we really look forward to seeing you at the market.

On another note: you may have noticed that we have two upcoming activities with submission deadlines for documentary projects: The brand new Ice and Fire Docs workshop and the EDN Pitch Pilot Workshop Galway. So if you've got both the inclination and a suitable project in the pipline, please don't hesitate to submit your work!

Have a nice weekend,
The EDN Team
