EAVE appoints new Head of Studies

The Media Programme's training and development programme EAVE (European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs) has appointed Jani Thiltges as their new Head of Studies in replacement of Alan Fountain, who has been leading EAVE’s pedagogical development since 2000 and now becomes EAVE’s President from January 1, 2012. 

Since 1986, Jani is co-founder, partner and CEO of Samsa Film in Luxembourg. He is also partner of ARTEMIS PRODUCTIONS (Belgium) and FADO FILMES (Portugal). In 2003, he founded LIAISON CINEMATOGRAPHIQUE, based in Paris, in association with ARTEMIS PRODUCTIONS (Belgium) and ENTRE CHIEN ET LOUP (Belgium). At SAMSA FILM, in association with his partner and producer Claude WARINGO, they succeeded in building the company’s strong reputation and capacity in producing commercial arthouse films. So far, Jani has produced and co-produced more than 50 feature films. Jani THILTGES is also a member of the European Film Academy and President of EAVE.  In 2004, he is decorated by the Luxembourg Grand-Duke for his activities in the cinematographic field. In 2009, he was awarded the prestigious Prix Eurimages. 

Jani Thiltges said: “EAVE has become under Alan Fountain’s reign, a unique and remarkable training programme for producers. It has been a tremendous honour and pleasure to work with him over the last 10 years, and I would like to express in the name of the whole pedagogical team our warmest thank you to a real gentleman! We will all miss you!!!”

EAVE CEO Kristina Trapp praised the work of Alan Fountain and said: “It’s been a privilege for me to work closely with Alan for the past decade and I am delighted that EAVE is currently in a very strong position. With Jani, we have made a high-profile appointment which is excellent news for EAVE and I look forward to continuing to work together with Jani on further enhancing EAVE’s role in strengthening European independent production.

EAVE is a professional training, project development and networking organisation for audiovisual producers. Working with a worldwide network of partners we are involved in programmes for producers in Europe, Russia, Latin America, the Arab world, Asia and Africa.

EAVE’s flagship programme, the European Producers Workshop focuses on producer training for some 50 participants each year.
