|2003||Crew United was awarded the Innovation Prize 2003 of the BKM (Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media).|
|Who are we and where are we going?||In 1996, Vincent Lutz and Oliver Zenglein, two filmmakers from Munich, founded Crew United with the vision to unite all film professionals in one place. This was 2 years before Google, 8 years before Facebook and 11 years before Netflix.|
Today, Crew United is the largest European online network for all people and companies involved in the audiovisual industry and their works. With our comprehensive, up-to-date and transparent information and innovative tools we enable the networking of all industry players.
Crew United is based on a moderated, participatory model: All new entries made by our members are checked by the editorial team. Errors can be reported by email, phone or directly via the system and we will correct them immediately.
Starting in the German film industry, Crew United is expanding its work to other European countries since 2019. With the French and Polish version of the website and soon the local adaptations for Spain, Italy, Greece, Lithuania and Romania, the team of editors welcomes new members and partners to join the platform and develop the film industry together. The approach is to develop national networks that take into account each country's identity, language, film culture and structures, and to join them to a common European network that will decisively promote the collaboration between the countries, and the European film identity within and outside Europe.
|How does Crew United work?||Crew United can be briefly described as a cross of a film database combined with a professional directory. A Crew United profile allows you to reference your own filmography in a very precise and verified manner, to find out who has worked on which film and with whom, and to search with detailed criteria among the filmmakers' profiles.|
