EAVE January News 2012


The Film Agency

A new film-marketing agency is born today in Europe and EAVE members have a special 20% discount!

The new company based in Spain is a promotion solution created for producers, sales agents and distributors across the world. It offers a specialized portfolio of services in order to provide strategic planning since early stages of development and accompany the whole process with solidness and originality until the distribution of the film. 

Understanding the needs of producers, The Film Agency offers consultancy services such as MD: Marketing doctor (marketing strategy in development stage), PMD: Producers’ Marketing & Distribution (promotion materials and releases during shooting) and RA: Raising Awareness (b2b tools for sales agents and producers). *

The agency director is Sarah Calderón, EAVE’S marketing expert. Sarah has a master degree in International Marketing at the Celsa-Sorbonne in Paris and an extensive experience in the international film distribution sector. Formerly head of the film department at Patofeo Films in Bogotá, Head of Sales at Philippe Bober’s Coproduction Office in Paris, Distribution Coordinator at Karma Films in Madrid and current consultant for the Media Programme and several Media Desks, Sarah has been able to get an insight of the independent industry from several angles understanding key aspects of film distribution. 

Moreover the agency counts on a core team of advisors (among them Daniel Bajo, David Carrizales, Gaëlle Fillion, David Grumbach and Adrien Moisson) and a select number of partners who work on the campaigns on an outsourcing basis according to each project. This allows the agency to get adapted to all projects and budget sizes. The main current partners are: Binalogue, Nutone, Noobware and Sauvez la Reine.

The Film Agency believes it can help the film industry face new challenges. Currently many independent films get to have an extremely narrow distribution, often concentrated in highly cinephile sectors. Stronger and high-reach marketing tools could help to improve these results. Several factors in today’s world are clear opportunities for the film business. We believe that the advent of new media and online tools, the new elements in the consumption behavior (such as the VoD platforms), the branded content possibilities and the strong international networks are some of these new opportunities. 

*All services (see details at www.thefilmagency.eu) are provided in consultancy mode and in executive mode. EAVE members discount = 20% until the 31st of December 2012.

Film Finance Forum 2012 - Call for Applications

Call for Applications - Film Finance Forum 2012

Deadline for applications: March 2, 2012

EAVE Film Finance Forum 2012 takes place during April 19-22 in Luxembourg. It is an intensive four day workshop for European and international professionals on European film finance.

The EAVE Film Finance Forum provides an exploration and update of the latest financial developments and funding sources in Europe. It includes sessions on public and private finance, co-production, tax incentives, the sales and distribution market, banking services and new industry trends. Since most films produced in Europe are made with low to medium budgets, the Finance Forum will focus on its participants' real financial situation and provide them with solutions adapted to their needs and projects.

How does it work?

The workshop takes the form of an inclusive round table with presentations on various up-to-date topics followed by open discussion with the participants and leading industry experts from the finance and film businesses. In order to achieve a maximum level of interactivity the total number of participants is limited. This enables an approach focused on a small group and the specific needs of each participant as well as facilitating networking between participants and experts.

Leading European experts

The Film Finance Forum's team is composed of leading experts (subject to change). The 2011 edition included: Christian Kmiotek (Head of Studies, Film Finance Forum & CFO, Samsa Film), Christophe Bruncher(Les Films de la Butte), Carl Clifton (K5 International), Maud Leclair (BNP Paribas), Joëlle Levie (OLFFI), Stefan Rüll (Rüll Law Office) and Bernhard Stampfer (BS Media Finance Advisory).

Who can apply?

The Film Finance Forum is targeted to producers and associated film industry professionals, members of the financial and legal communities, policy makers, and consultants. It is also open to non-EU applicants, thanks to the support of MEDIA Mundus.

The selection of the candidates is based on the application file submitted by each applicant according to the form provided. EAVE evaluates the quality of the candidate's company, his/her and the company's track record and the level of professional background of the candidate(s). Priority is given to applicants working within independent and/or small and medium sized companies.

For the fourth time in 2012 and after the great success in 2011, Ties That Bind - EAVE Asia-Europe Producers Workshop will be organised again in 2012 in partnership with FVG Audiovisual Fund, EAVE, Udine Fareast Film Festival and Busan International Film Festival / Asian Project Market.

Ties That Bind 2011 will consist of two workshops, workshop 1 taking place in Udine (Italy) between April 22-26, 2012 within the framework of the Udine Far East Film Festival (April 20-28, 2012) and workshop 2 being organized in October 8-11, 2012 during the Busan International Film Festival (October 4-13, 2012) in South Korea.

The workshops will bring together 10 film producers from Asian and European countries. Each producer will be selected together with a feature film project in development and will work with leading industry experts from both continents during the two workshops. Amongst a range of issues, sessions will focus on script development, co-production between Asia and Europe, financing in the two regions, marketing and promotion, and the legal aspects of co-production. The workshop participants will work together as a group, as well as through individual consultation, and will have the unusual opportunity to get to know each other very well with the object of forming long term creative and business partnerships and networks. The programme will culminate in Busan in October 2012 with meetings between the participants and leading Asian and European funders and sales agents during the Asian Project Market. 

Target group: Experienced feature film producers from Asia (Japan, Korea, China incl. Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, Mongolia, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia) and Europe wishing to work on an international scale and to create long term creative and business relationships between Europe and Asia. Interested producers should apply with a feature film project in development stage. European producers applying must be able to demonstrate a clear involvement with Asia and vice versa.

Participation fees & conditions: The participation at Ties That Bind is free of charge. Each participant will be offered accommodation during the workshop stay (full board including meals). In addition, we will offer a number of partial scholarships to contribute to the travel costs.

Call for Applications - Film Finance Forum 2012

Deadline for applications: March 2, 2012

EAVE Film Finance Forum 2012 takes place during April 19-22 in Luxembourg. It is an intensive four day workshop for European and international professionals on European film finance.

The EAVE Film Finance Forum provides an exploration and update of the latest financial developments and funding sources in Europe. It includes sessions on public and private finance, co-production, tax incentives, the sales and distribution market, banking services and new industry trends. Since most films produced in Europe are made with low to medium budgets, the Finance Forum will focus on its participants' real financial situation and provide them with solutions adapted to their needs and projects.

How does it work?

The workshop takes the form of an inclusive round table with presentations on various up-to-date topics followed by open discussion with the participants and leading industry experts from the finance and film businesses. In order to achieve a maximum level of interactivity the total number of participants is limited. This enables an approach focused on a small group and the specific needs of each participant as well as facilitating networking between participants and experts.

Leading European experts

The Film Finance Forum's team is composed of leading experts (subject to change). The 2011 edition included: Christian Kmiotek (Head of Studies, Film Finance Forum & CFO, Samsa Film), Christophe Bruncher (Les Films de la Butte), Carl Clifton (K5 International), Maud Leclair (BNP Paribas), Joëlle Levie (OLFFI), Stefan Rüll (Rüll Law Office) and Bernhard Stampfer (BS Media Finance Advisory).

Who can apply?

The Film Finance Forum is targeted to producers and associated film industry professionals, members of the financial and legal communities, policy makers, and consultants. It is also open to non-EU applicants, thanks to the support of MEDIA Mundus.

The selection of the candidates is based on the application file submitted by each applicant according to the form provided. EAVE evaluates the quality of the candidate's company, his/her and the company's track record and the level of professional background of the candidate(s). Priority is given to applicants working within independent and/or small and medium sized companies.
