The Danish Film Institute invited national documentarians to take part in a one day meeting at the Danish Film House. This yearly meeting took place monday this week and served to create a forum for a dialogue between the film institute executives and consultants (commissioning editors), and the filmmakers. Information was given and works-in-progress were presented for open debate. More than 200 professionals attended the well programmed, generous agenda in an openminded atmosphere. There were discussions on new media, on the return and importance of the word in the documentary film, on films on mobile phones and on reconstruction in documentaries. Plus all the important catch-up small talks that happen during a day like this. Very useful for everybody.
