”The EDN Executive Committee has appointed Paul Pauwels as the new Director of the organization. The appointment will be effective from May 15th, when Pauwels take over the strategic planning and future development of the international documentary network with over 1000 members and more than 50 yearly activities…”
Breaking news from EDN (European Documentary Network), more facts to be read about Paul Pauwels on the site of the organisation.
For me, who with colleague Anita Reher, and with PeÅ Holmquist as the first President, were there from the beginning of the adventure in 1996 a big BRAVO for this decision. PP has always been part of the activities of EDN, he was the third President (the second was Stefano Tealdi), and with his energy, production knowledge, pedagogical skills warm heart for the creative documentary and humour he has encouraged, inspired, helped documentarians here, there and everywhere. I remember lots of occasions, where we in the office asked Paul to go to do pioneer work, which he accepted without hesitation. He was the one who went to East European Forum in Jihlava to help build up, he was the one “we” sent to Calcutta for the first DocEdge… I could go on.
