University of Brussels. For my dissertation I am conducting a study
concerning the E.U.s MEDIA Plus program and in particular the
financial support it provides for the development phase in the
production of documentaries.
For this I am looking for people who work in the field of documentary
to fill in a questionnaire concerning both the financing of
documentaries in general as well as the financial development support
provided by MEDIA Plus. But you don't necessarily need any experience
with this program to fill in the questionnaire. Even if you or your
company do not meet up to the conditions laid down by the E.U. as so
that you cannot apply for the program, your input would still be very
welcome. The only requirement for taking part in this study is that
you have to work in the field of documentary.
You can find the questionnaire at
It is made up out of three parts but it should only take up a small

Important note: All of the questions, unless when specified
otherwise, only concern documentary projects and the work you do in
the documentary field. Please take this into account when answering
The final results of my research will be put to the disposition of
the European Documentary Network so my work will also serve a
practical goal. My father, Paul Pauwels from Periscope Productions
and former president of EDN, started a survey last year concerning
the same subject and my research is actually meant to be a more
complete version of it.
There have been some compatibility problems with some people who use
Macs but for them there is now a text version available which you can
dowload to your computer and then email to me. You can find this text
version at the same adres as the on-line questionaire.
In case of any further problems with the questionnaire, please
contact me immediately.
I thank you in advance for your co-operation.
