European Docuzone Announces Eight Documentaries Selected for Opening Weekend and Reveals Name Change to Cinemanet Europe

Highlight is ‘Peace One Day’
European DocuZone (EDZ) today announced that it is changing its name to CinemaNet Europe. It also unveiled the programme for its opening showcase when the world’s largest digital film network goes live across Europe the weekend of November 12th,13th and 14th, 2004. The headline film is the critically acclaimed ‘Peace One Day’ from the UK, which will open as pan-European premiere across all nine countries with a satellite-linked Q&A with the director.

Other highlights include the Emmy award-winning Slovakian film ‘The Power of Good’; the award-winning Dutch production ‘The Damned and the Sacred’; and an upcoming HD production, The White Diamond, by Werner Herzog of Germany.

The name change to CinemaNet Europe reflects a long term objective of distributing all types of specialist films, including shorts, low-budget features and animation, in addition to the original focus on documentaries. It also communicates the importance of the organisation’s network of digital cinemas across Europe.

CinemaNet Europe is transforming over 180 independent cinemas into digital cinemas in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Slovakia and the UK. In addition to locally produced films in each country, CinemaNet Europe will distribute at least 12 European documentary films in the first year. The films are selected by an international jury representing partners from every country. This is the first time these films will have been subtitled and distributed across Europe.

“’Fahrenheit 9/11’ and ‘Touching the Voi’d demonstrated that documentaries can be more dramatic, entertaining and humorous than formulaic Hollywood fiction. We are building on this groundswell to introduce the best of European documentaries to new audiences,” said Kees Ryninks, managing director of CinemaNet Europe. “With the recent reductions in the cost of digital cinema technology it is now cost-effective to distribute digital films by satellite and screen them on high quality digital projectors.”

For the first time, specialist films will be able to open as pan-European premieres simultaneously across over 180 cinemas with a satellite-linked Q&A with the director. "It is every filmmaker’s dream to have their work exhibited internationally and to be seen by the widest possible audience. CinemaNet Europe is a ground-breaking initiative and for ‘Peace One Day to be the opening film of this launch year is a tremendous honour," said Jeremy Gilley, director of ‘Peace One Day’.

“I have been known as a vocal opponent of digital cinema,” commented Jos De Putter, the Dutch director of ‘The Damned and The Sacred’ also known as ‘Dans, Grozny Dans’. “But the launch of CinemaNet Europe is an interesting development. This digital cinema network could provide a major boost for specialist European filmmakers and audiences alike.”

The eight films selected reflect the diverse range of themes covered by contemporary European documentaries – from history to sports and music – and set a high standard for the quality of films CinemaNet Europe will distribute in the future:






‘Peace One Day’ 





This documentary charts the remarkable five-year journey of the filmmaker as he meets heads of state, Noble Peace Laureates, aid agencies, freedom fighters, media moguls, the innocent victims of war and, eventually, everyone who was anyone at the UN.

The Film received its World Premiere at The Edinburgh International Film Festival, August 2004 and will launch in the US in September.
