EDN Online Pitching call for cross platform projects

EDN - European Documentary Network is pleased to introduce EDN Online Pitching. This new thematic pitching format is based on an online video conference, where a selected number documentary projects are introduced. For the first session EDN is calling for documentary projects with a cross platform potential. Deadline is September 15, 2010.

At the EDN Online Pitching four documentary projects are pitched to a group of leading international financiers and decision makers. Each session will have a specific focus like science, history or cross platform. The pitching takes place online in the EDN Video Conference Room and each session lasts one hour. The first session, which will be focusing on cross platform projects, will take place on September 30, 2010 at 14:00.

Upon the announcement of this new format EDN Head of Office Cecilia Lidin said:
‘The aim of the EDN Online Pitching Sessions is to create a forum where documentary projects with a specific focus can be introduced and discussed. This low cost online set-up makes it possible for EDN to create space for introductions and discussions of themes and focuses not always possible in the offline world. It is an effective way of creating new networks and structures within the documentary sector'
