Ove has been with EDN since Winter 2003 and is in charge of running workshops, pitching forums and seminars in both online and offline versions.
Ove has programmed and/or produced a number of events like Docs in Thessaloniki, The EDN Pitch Pilot Workshop, New Platforms - New Politics, Twelve for the Future and lately also EDN’s market activities at European Film Market, Sunny Side of the Doc and MIPDOC. In addition he has collaborated with a number of documentary organisations and festivals on tailor made master classes, seminars and workshops for special events and occasions. This includes the IDFA DocLab in The Netherlands, DOX in Vitro in Slovakia, RealYoung in Sweden and NFI:LAB Junior DOK in Norway. 
From 2004 to early 2015 Ove was also in charge of the EDN web site, heading the process of building a platform, where a network as geographical divided as EDN’s, can have a meeting place for collaboration and information sharing. This has resulted in formats like EDN Online Master Classes, where leading documentary figures share their knowledge about filmmaking, and EDN Online Sessions, where important financiers are introduced and their financing possibilities presented. Latest format is The EDN Online Pitching Session, where documentary projects with a specific thematic focus are pitching to a selected group of financiers via an online videoconference system.
Ove Rishøj Jensen holds a master degree in film studies with additional studying of cultural journalism and humanistic computer informatics. Besides working for EDN Ove has briefly worked for Filmkontakt Nord. Alongside working for EDN, Ove is working for the Swedish production company Auto Images as Outreach Producer and is a board member of the Nordic documentary screening initiative Doc Lounge.
