Digital Community: Friday Hangouts
Join us: industry experts and DAE members every Friday for informal and informative discussions on our changing industry.
We were so excited to meet you all at film festivals, markets and training events in the spring and summer, culminating with a celebration planned for Cannes. While this is now off the table and filed under UNKNOWN, over the last weeks, every. Friday at 16:00 CEST (that’s Berlin/Paris time for those of you playing at home), we’ve been meeting to discuss our work, our lives and start making some plans of how to get through this challenging time and also how to move out of it.
With disruption comes opportunity! As our dear member Martijn te Pas said over on the D-Word. If you’d like to join the hangouts, you’re most welcome!
They are open to members and non-members alike. You can sign up for Friday Hangouts by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or register for an online consultation here.
We've broken down the Hangouts into 4 main groups:
- Re-imaginging pitching forums and financing events for the future. This group is moderated by Christian Popp, producer at YUZU Productions and Head of Industry Days at FIPADOC
- Distribution with a focus on online/digital distribution. Moderated by Belgian producer Maarten Schmidt, Storyhouse Production.
- We know members want access to the very best and accurate information on financing, distribution, technology, co-production partners and networking. How can we reimagine these resources and share information. Moderated by Brigid O’Shea, Head of DOK Industry, DOK Leipzig.
This is not a Pitching Forum: this cosy space is for filmmakers to discuss their upcoming documentary projects with peer filmmakers and invited industry professionals. It will offer advice and discussion on taking the next steps. Not a pitching forum, but a weekly hangout to share stories, ideas and challenges as well as expand your network. Moderated by Laura Klöckner of Savvy Contemporary and DOK Leipzig.
