The letter below, written to film consultant Dola Bonfils from DFI (Danish Film Institute) reacts to the fact that more and more of the support from the DFI is allocated to journalists with current affairs issued to be made into films. And not to further the Danish documentary film as an art form.
I suppose this is a discussion that could be taken in many other countries as well? Is this a trend, and will it damage the innovation of the creative documentary? Is the public funding supposed to take over the role of good journalistic tv documentary?
