May 2015 to March 2016, around Europe
Moving Docs is a new EDN initiative supported by Creative Europe. Its aim is to create innovative outreach strategies and provide opportunities for urban and rural European audiences to enjoy regular screenings of documentary films through a wide variety of media and platforms.
Moving Docs is a partnership founded for the simultaneous distribution of documentaries across Europe. Through the joint action of eight pioneering and successful partners across Europe including: CineDoc (Greece), DocLounge (Sweden), DocsBarcelona-The Documentary of the Month 40 (Spain and South America), APORDOC (Portugal), DocIt (Italy), Lemessos International Documentary Festival (Cyprus), Planete Doc (Poland) and the Scottish Documentary Institute (UK), Moving Docs will create a common marketing and distribution strategy to enable and facilitate the pan-European release of documentaries.Read more
Stimulating networks & knowledge within the documentary sector
EDN - European Documentary Network is a global network for professionals working with documentary film and TV. Over 1000 members from more than 60 countries have joined EDN. Our organisation is open for both newcomers and established filmmakers from around the world. EDN provides documentary consulting and informs about possibilities for funding, financing, development, co-production, distribution and collaboration across borders. This is done via individual consultancy to members on documentary projects, activities like workshops, seminars and conferences as well as through the two indispensable resource publications The EDN Financing Guide & The EDN Co-production Guide. EDN started in September 1996 as a documentary organisation for filmmakers, producers, production companies, distributors, associations, film institutions & boards, universities, festivals, broadcasters and film & television agencies. EDN is also organising a number of activities including pitching sessions, development programmes, seminars and workshops. You are always more than welcome to contact us if you want to know more about joining EDN, getting information about our activities or getting us involved in initiatives you are organising.
