EDN Renews Discount Offer for Former DFG Members


Following the merger between EDN and the UK-based Documentary Filmmakers Group (DFG) in June last year, we have now prolonged the opportunity for former DFG members to join our association at reduced rates — the offer is valid until the end of February.

The European Documentary Network has renewed its membership discount offer for former members of the DFG. The initiative reflects our intention to form an even stronger pan-European documentary collective and to react to developments affecting our film-political climate, such as the Brexit referendum. In order to work towards this goal, we have recently responded to an inquiry launched by the UK Parliament, in which we address the potential impact of Brexit on the documentary sector and the creative industries in the UK.

EDN Director Paul Pauwels stated in a recent message to former DFG members: "At the end of 2016, EDN supported and co-drafted a document, initiated by British EDN members, in which we defended the UK’s continued commitment to the Creative Europe programme and outlined the negative consequences of the Brexit for the UK audiovisual community. Hard Brexit or not, for EDN the UK has always been and will always be a part of our family and we are planning to organise more activities in the UK in the future".

Last week, we have published a summary of the inquiry; both the summary and the submission itself can be found here.

DFG members, who decide to join EDN, will get:
