WHO ARE WE?
We are Doc Next Network. Our network is a unique European movement. Active in the UK, Spain, Poland, the Netherlands, Turkey and connected to other parts of Europe and its neighbors, we organise media-workshops for young talented storytellers and share their media. Doc Next Network highlights the work of a new generation of media-makers that shows what Europe is really about.
VISION & AMBITION
We want a more inclusive public debate and imagery, in and of Europe. We provide access to media and platforms for young people who are likely to be excluded from mainstream public discourse. We bring their stories to you: at film festivals, on radio and tv, on on-line platforms, at seminars and conferences for policy and decisions makers.
Sharing the viewpoints of young documentarians amongst a broad, intergenerational audience is crucial for a more inclusive public debate and imagery of Europe. It provides alternative perspectives on our contemporary society. We are challenged by the ever-growing parallel public opinion making environment on the Internet, with its community journalism and other spaces that promote D-I-Y media, such as YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook. As young talented media-makers are routing around established cultural, media and political institutions, it is time to make new links. Doc Next Network is an innovative matchmaker between these different platforms and between generations.
