The Cost of Docs Survey 2017: Calling all Documentary Professionals to Take Part


If you're a documentary professional interested in shaping the future of the documentary industry, you now have the opportunity to participate in The Cost of Docs Survey 2017. The survey aims to provide more insights concerning the financial side of documentary filmmaking by gathering related facts and figures from within the documentary community.

The survey takes around 10 minutes to complete. Enter your email address at the end and get the chance of winning a pass for this year’s Open City Doc Fest, the home of innovative and inspirational docs from across the globe. The survey is available here:

The Cost of Docs Survey 2017 is a collaboration between Whicker's World Foundation, Open City Docs and EDN, aimed at investigating the costs involved in the production of documentary films in today's business environment. Any and all documentary professionals are encouraged to take the survey, be it commmissioning editors, directors, production managers or producers.

The results of the survey are relevant for understanding the bigger picture of the documentary sector and will be important assets for white papers and official inquiries. Last year the results of the survey were used in a parliamentary enquiry on the effects of Brexit on the doc making community. This year we would like to go one step further: Who is funding documentaries? How much do they cost? And how are emerging technologies reshaping the industry during its so-called ‘Golden Age’?
