Stimulating networks & knowledge within the documentary sector

European Documentary Network is a global network for professionals working with documentary film and TV. Around 1000 members from more than 60 countries have joined EDN. Our organisation is open for both newcomers and established filmmakers from around the world.

You can be the next member of our network. JOIN EDN!

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 resources The EDN Financing Guide and 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.
