Remumeration Policy (Dutch)
The members of the Supervisory Board do not receive any remuneration for their work. They may receive a non-excessive holiday allowance and reimbursement of the costs incurred by them in the performance of their duties. The board receives a salary in accordance with labor agreements that are common in the sector. Furthermore, the DocsOnline Foundation does not employ any employees. The employees who together with the board form the Management Team are rewarded as freelancers for their activities.
The objective of the foundation is:
- To provide (international) support to professional documentary makers in terms of both (project) finances and increased audience impact
- To promote the use of documentaries as a valuable source of information in the context of both education and public opinion.
The foundation aims to achieve this goal by managing and developing a website with an archive of documentaries and contextual information. In addition, the foundation organizes events (debates, Q&A's etc) both online and offline to discuss not only documentary filmmaking but also the issues these films deal with.
Actual Report of current activities
In 2018 and 2019 DocsOnline is supporting, promoting, and developing educational packages for the online release of 60 licensed Documentary films. To fully exploit the potential of the marketplace and maximize audience impact for these films we are continuously seeking additional funds through fundraising, crowdfunding and sponsoring. As we speak 60% of the 2019 budget has been covered so far.
