European Documentary Network and Creative Industries Research

The Screen Cultures in Transition research group is pleased to invite you to a collaborative presentation by Willemien Sanders and Eline Livémont. The presentation will take place on Monday 17 December between 3:30 and 5 PM, in Drift 23 room 0.13. We hope to see many of you there.


About a year ago, the European Documentary Network launched the Media and Society initiative, a research project in which the documentary sector in Europe is being mapped for the first time, both in terms of facts and figures and in terms of the challenges it faces, the opportunities and desired policy measures. This happened through both qualitative (focus groups) and quantitative (survey) research. The goal is to come to a white book which reflects a shared understanding of the sector and its work and which will facilitate international dialogue as well as contain policy advice to come to a more sustainable European documentary sector.

The survey research is carried out by Eline Livémont (VUB), while reports and other input from the focus group interviews are analysed by Willemien Sanders. They will discuss the preliminary outcomes of both endeavours and also discuss the methodological challenges this kind of Creative Industries research entails.
