STRIKING A DIFFERENT BALANCE BETWEEN POLITICS, ECONOMICS AND CULTURE: PUBLIC DEBATE AT PRINCESS MARGRIET AWARD
ECF and Flemish-Dutch House deBuren are holding a public debate on 19 March 2012 in Brussels - with Professor Judith Marquand (Wolfson College, Oxford) and Frans Timmermans former Dutch Minister for European Affairs - to discuss the urgent responsibilities of culture, economics and politics in constructing a new horizon for democracy, beyond the nation state and the financial sector.

The debate will take place just before the ECF Princess Margriet Award ceremony on 19 March, when laureates Charles Esche and John Akomfrah will receive their prizes. Laureate Charles Esche will launch the debate with Frans Timmermans to discuss what kind of shared values can radically change the way we think and act as engaged citizens of Europe and of the world.
Entry is free of charge, but please register in advance.

SNAPSHOT INTERVIEW: SEEKING YOUNG DUTCH-TURKISH STARS
Jenneken Aarssen and Yusuf Orkun Yagci belong to one of the Turkey Tandem's that have recently started working together in an exciting new scheme launched by ECF and partners in late 2011. It's designed to bring together cultural managers from non-EU and EU countries to co-develop new working practices, methodologies and cultural experiences. Check out the interview with them in Amsterdam, now online.


DOC NEXT NETWORK AT BFI'S 5TH FUTURE FILM FESTIVAL
Last weekend about 500 young people from London visited in the 5th Future Film Festival. They were participating in filmmaking workshops and watching films by some of the UK's hottest young filmmakers.

ECF's Doc Next Network were also visiting the festival at the BFI Southbank where a selection of films from the Doc Next Media Collection was screened. And the lucky winner of a special Doc Next pitching competition was Jaha Browne, who convinced the jury with her idea of documenting the one and only clinic in England to support technology addicts. She was awarded with the participation in a workshop organised by one the other European hubs of the Doc Next Network.
