Invitation to the EDN General Assembly 2019


We cordially invite all our members to the EDN General Assembly 2019, which will take place on Sunday, 24 November, during IDFA. Although all EDN members will receive this invitation as well by email, we decided to also publish the announcement on our website.

The annual EDN General Assembly

With this announcement we have the pleasure of inviting you to the annual General Assembly of the European Documentary Network. PLEASE CONFIRM YOUR PRESENCE by sending an email to edn_@If you can read this, please upgrade to a modern before 15 November 2019 at 12.00 (noon).

This year the General Assembly will again be held during IDFA. We are happy to meet all of you at The Compagnie Theater (in the 'Grote Zaal', Kloveniersburgwal 50, 1012 KD Amsterdam) on Sunday, 24 November 2019, starting at 10.00 (doors opening at 09.30).
For many of you this will be the first time that we will meet in person and we are looking forward to this moment, even though the topics on the agenda this year are a lot more intense than in previous years.

To make sure we can have an efficient and fruitful meeting in the 3 hours that are available to us, we will send you additional information during the upcoming 10 days before the meeting. We strongly advise you to take good notice of this information package as it is relevant and imperative for all voters to be well prepared during the meeting.

The past year has been a very special time for EDN and absolutely a moment where EDN has put effort into evaluating and assessing its services & offering thoroughly. We welcome and invite EDN members as much as possible to be part of this process of reflecting over EDN's past, assessing EDN's present and shaping EDN's future together.

We want to thank all members whom we spoke informally or formally during events for the inspiring, supportive and committed conversation we had so far. For the same purpose, the EDN team created a survey that has been very useful over the past months. You can find it here.

We kindly invite you to participate and share your thoughts: the survey should not take more than 2 minutes to complete. Of course you can also share your ideas through email at edn_@If you can read this, please upgrade to a modern

We are especially keen to know what you expect from EDN including your assessment of EDN's services, details regarding your membership, the products and services you would like EDN to provide you with.

We also want to be certain everyone is on track with the circumstances around the change of management earlier this year. Therefore, we would like to provide you with a letter we sent on May 14th this year with many answers to a lot of questions some of the members had at the time (click here for a PDF version of the document). As some of the topics might still be of importance during the General Assembly, we think it is useful for you to read it.

Confirming Your Presence for the General Assembly

Please confirm your presence by email to edn_@If you can read this, please upgrade to a modern before November 15th 2019 at 12.00 (noon). For now, we hope to welcome many of you in Amsterdam on the 24th of this month. Please note that you have to be a member of EDN in order to attend the General Assembly.
