Our friends at the European Documentary Network are looking for participants in for their Media and Society Initiative. This is a new project designed to support the European documentary culture. With the help of professionals working in documentary and its related fields the EDN hopes to bring together academics, documentary filmmakers, key documentary organizations, media policy makers and a wide range of media stakeholders in order to shape the changing media world as a team.
The project is made up of fact-finding, analysis and policy discussion over a period of one year. Additionally, the project includes a series of ‘meeting moments’ during which professionals can exchange information with working members and discuss their work and insights. EDN will be organizing ‘presentation moments’ at Marché du Film in Cannes, Sunny Side of the Doc and Sheffield Doc/Fest during which findings of the project will be shared with a wide range of stakeholders, including policy makers and the media.
