The EDN Financing Guide provides documentary professionals with the information needed to navigate in the evolving landscape of documentary financing, where new approaches to funding and distribution have become increasingly important. Among the included information in the guide are details and contact information on broadcasters, distributors, film funds and VOD platforms.
