DAE is a brand-new network for documentary professionals.


Our first GA is planned for November 15. We are a bit on hiatus til then. However, the discount on membership fees is extended until December 31, 2020. Save 50% off. 

Let’s connect online. More information soon.

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.
