DAE is a brand-new network for documentary professionals.

We are an interconnected community collaborating and sharing across borders. Your DAE membership gives you access to great deals and exclusive offers, as well as our international expertise and network.

But most importantly, you can shape the most important conversations on education, financing and distribution of non-fiction films.

Welcome to a new chapter for European documentary.

DAE is currently organised on a volunteer basis by a small group of very passionate people. Membership fees are crucial for the organisation to plant its roots, but skillful, resourceful and enthusiastic people like yourself will always be DAE’s greatest asset.



We are building DAE’s network and memberships. New resources and incentives for members will be published frequently.
