Upcoming Deadlines August 2012

European Producers Workshop 2013 - APPLY NOW! 

Deadline for applications: October 1, 2012

Train, develop, network. A year long programme focussed on three intensive weeks featuring professional development through working on the development of fiction and documentary projects. WORKSHOP 1 in Luxembourg (LU), 11-18 MARCH 2013 

Who is it for?

EAVE is aimed at producers, both fiction and documentary, who are already working in the film and television industries who wish to begin to operate on a European wide basis by increasing their knowledge of producing and co-producing in Europe and by building up a pan European professional network. We also welcome applications from associated branches of the industry – e.g. commissioning, funding, legal and finance, festivals & markets, media administration. Each year fifty participants are selected from most of the EU countries and beyond and take part in three one-week long workshops.

How does it work?

Half the participants attend the course with projects and it is an excellent means of development through intense focus on the project with colleagues and experts throughout the year. Most participants attending with a project also bring their writer for the first two weeks which enables producer and writer to benefit together from one-to-one sessions with script experts. 

During the first two workshops, in March and June, participants work within groups led by experienced producers and with several experts on script analysis, development and production financing, legal aspects of co-production, marketing, pitching, packaging and more. In the third week in October, 40-50 Decision Makers (commissioning editors, national and regional media funds, sales agents, etc.) join the participants to discuss the projects, companies and careers of the participants, a process which offers unusual access to Europe's Decision Makers. EAVE graduates join a unique network of active European producers which forms one of the backbones of the industry. Furthermore, EAVE participants and members benefit from our partnerships with the leading European film festivals and markets where EAVE facilitates graduate participation. 

Timeline

The interviews with all candidates will take place in autumn 2012 and the selection will be announced in December 2012. The 3 workshops take place during March 11 - 18 in Luxembourg (LU), June 12 - 19 in Turku (FI) and October/November in Vienna (AT) 2013.

Baltic Event, Call For Entries - three weeks left!

Deadline of the Baltic Event Co-Production Market: September 15, 2012

The 2012 edition of Baltic Event, the largest regional film market in North-Eastern Europe, will take place on November 26-28 during Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival. First introduced in 2002, it has highlighted an amazing array of feature film projects, many of which have to date premiered and enjoyed successful runs in the festival circuit, cinemas, and television.

From Producers to Producers 

An annual invitation by the Swiss producers for a peer to peer exchange of experiences with European producers at the Locarno Film Festival

How can a creative producer build a sustainable independent business?

Based on the testimonies of experienced European producers, the discussion focuses on the key factors to consider when designing a business plan and developing a slate of projects. This exchange gives all producers attending the opportunity to question their mid-term company development strategy. The questions dealt with include: What are my objectives for the next five years? With which projects and stories? Which directors will be involved? What are my expectations in terms of business prospects and financial consequences for my company?

After the debate, the participating producers are invited to continue the discussions in a more relaxed atmosphere (terrace and cocktail), pitch their projects and/or make new contacts with producers as well as with representatives of the European professional training organizations taking part in this event.

On Monday, August 4, 2012 from 15.00 to 18.00 at the Hotel Belvedere in Locarno.
