Friday New: Cannes Docs, Sheffield Doc/Fest

Cannes Docs

Free digital passes for Cannes Docs for DAE members participating in the Co-Pro Speed Meetings!

Hi Friends,

here we are, another week down. May has been so busy, we’ve been at Dok.Fest Munich and HotDocs, we are preparing for Docs Barcelona, Krakow, Cannes and Sunny Side in the next month, and in conversation with many stakeholders about the second half of 2020 and the affect this crisis will have on it. We are watching and listening eagle-eyed to see what will happen with Nordisk Panorama, DOK Leipzig, Jihlava and of course, IDFA. Cinemas might be opening up, but when oh when will we have the opportunity for face to face exchange!?

Next week we will share the first outcomes from the Friday Hangouts. Stay tuned!

Keep safe, keep sane, keep on fighting documentary gang!
