Documentary discussion at


During September a discussion about the future for documentary making and financing has been raised at the blog of former EDN Director Tue Steen Müller.

The discussion was initiated by Louise Rosen, a US media executive running an agency specializing in the financing and distribution of documentaries in a mail to blog holder Tue Steen Müller and Head of Studies at EDN, Mikael Opstrup.

The discussion was started with this comment from Louise:

‘If you surf around on websites announcing workshops and pitching fora you might very easily get the impression that everything is fine with documentary financing and co-productions between the countries.

It is not, and it should be discussed.’

Louise, Tue and Mikael have been heading the discussion, but as the discussion took off comments were also added from among others:

  • Philippe Van Meerbeeck, VRT, Belgium
  • Iikka Vehkalahti, YLE, Finland
  • Charlie Phillips, Sheffield Doc/Fest, UK
