Leena Pasanen doesn’t need much of an introduction as she is already well-known in the international documentary business. In her current position as Head of Programmes at YLE Teema, she has distinguished herself as one of the most internationally oriented and enthusiastic commissioning editors in Europe, especially known for her support of new talent. Leena Pasanen has participated in numerous EDN workshops as a tutor and panellist, as she has at Discovery Campus, Eurodoc and Television Business School.
How did her path lead her to the directorship of EDN?
«Actually it’s Tue’s fault [Tue Steen Müller-ed.] I got involved. I met him in 1999, he invited me to Nordisk Forum and ever since, Tue has been inviting me to EDN events, pushing me more and more and challenging me. He lured me into this world of co-production and I am very grateful for that. So for me EDN was the only logical next step.»
