ELIGIBLE PROJECTS

Projects should be feature films or documentaries in development with a potential for an international co-production, preferably with a minimum of 20% of the budget already in place. Even though there are three main areas involved (East Europe, Italy and Nordic countries), producers can apply with projects suitable for a co-production between at least two of these regions.

All documents must be in English and must be sent via email before November 15, 2011 to info@wemw.it 

SELECTION

Selection will be done in collaboration with EAVE on several criteria: producers CVs, company track record, potential of the treatment and international dimension of the project. Selected projects will be announced in December and selected producers will be offered travel and accommodation in Trieste.

PITCHING INFO

Selected producers will have the opportunity to pitch their project in front of an international industry audience (potential co-producers, commissioning editors, sales agents, distributors, film funds representatives and financiers from both areas) in the framework of a closed pitching event.

REMINDER: The Arc 1950 Coproduction Village

Call for projects The Arc 1950 Coproduction Village

CLOSING OF SUBMISSIONS: SEPTEMBER 23rd, 2011

Dear EAVE Producers, we would like to inform you about the upcoming call for applications of  the Arc 1950 Coproduction Village.

In two editions, Les Arcs European Film Festival has become a major event within the French and European film festivals scene. In addition to a quality selection of around 60 European feature films, the festival will be organizing for its 3rd edition, the call for projects for the Arc 1950 Coproduction Village.

CONCEPT: During 4 days, from the 10th to the 13th December,  the Arc 1950 Coproduction Village aims to welcome 20 European film projects.

 The projects' producers will be invited to the festival and will have the opportunity to meet professionals during one-to-one meetings with:

- potential co-producers

- French and European distributors 

- sales agents

- regional funds

- banks, equity partners, specialists of tax credit systems in Europe.

- and of course all the professionals that come to the festival to present a film.  Last year, there were more than 800 professionals.

Debates and case studies are also organized on production and distribution issues in Europe.

Italy will be the country honoured this year by Les Arcs European Film Festival, so the Arc 1950 Coproduction Village will be focusing on Italian financing systems.

NEW THIS YEAR: the Work in Progress: a selection of 5 films in post-production, looking for financiers, distributors or a sales agent, will be screened to professionals.

Transmedia meeting: a round-table will be organized in partnership with Europa Distribution. Inter-professional meetings will also be set up with other areas (web, video-games.)

 The Arc 1950 Coproduction Village aims to be more than just a series of professional meetings, but also a place to develop informal relationships, in a casual atmosphere, in a unique place.Sports sessions (European Cinema Ski Cup, snowshoeing and « pitches »on chairlifts), lunches and cocktails will rythme these 4 days.

SELECTION CRITERIA:- the project must be a feature film (fiction, animation or documentary) initiated in Europe, in development or in post-production, minimum length of  75 minutes

-  the director needs to be  European and to have already directed films (feature films or distinguished short films)

- the producer(s) must be looking for additional sources of financing and/or european coproducer(s).

An European regional film fund support (in development or in production) will be considered as a plus for the project. It is also better to have already secured at least 25% of the budget.

Special for EAVE producers - Coproduction Village call for participation without project:  

EAVE offers you the opportunity to participate at the Coproduction Village without project in order to discover the selected projects and to participate at a rich programme of workshops and events. 

A selected number of EAVE producers will be invited by the festival (accreditation and accommodation). If you are interested, please confirm to us by email to tina@eave.org , sending us a short motivation statement and CV/filmography before October 27.
