CALL FOR APPLICATIONS EAVE Film Marketing Workshop - deadline October 14

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS for EAVE Film Marketing Workshop - deadline October 14

 

20th anniversary of the Film Marketing Workshop: November 22-24, 2013 (Luxembourg)

Don't miss the deadline for EAVE's well known Film Marketing Workshop for audiovisual professionals - an intensive and comprehensive exploration of the marketing process from script to screen. Join experts and colleagues to work on market trends and new marketing methods. Discuss your project with top level marketing specialists.

The workshop consists of plenary sessions in a small group (max 30 participants), as well as private tutorials with the experts, and is targeted at producers wishing to gain a greater understanding of the marketing process both in broad terms and for individual films which in turn results in creating a successful company, as well as for people working in sales, distribution and marketing departments.  We also appreciate applications from other professionals in the industry (e.g. regional and national funding institutions) and from relevant trainers and consultants.

Application deadline: October 14, 2013.

Application requirements and the application form can be downloaded on our website: www.eave.org

Discount of the workshop fee is offered to graduates of EAVE European Producers Workshop as well as to members of the EAVE partners Europa International and Europa Distribution.

 

The Film Marketing Workshop 2013 includes the following sessions (subject to changes): 

 

Introduction to Marketing 

by Pim Hermeling (Wild Bunch Benelux Distribution, Head of Studies of EAVE Film Marketing Workshop) & Frans van Gestel (Topkapi Films)

Film marketing is much more than only a poster and a trailer. It’s a combination of many different elements. Marketing is about selling your film to a specific group of people.

 

Producers and Moviegoers 

by Sarah Calderon (The Film Agency)

 "Producers and Moviegoers" is a short seminar providing basic marketing knowledge usable by producers. During the first part, some hints and tips about the well-known "business to business (b2b) tools" will be introduced. In the second part, we will dig deeper by dealing with the "business to consumer (b2c) tools" that would allow producers to establish a professional marketing plan taking their core audience in account. The structure of the conference and powerpoint presentation is conceived to provide the participants a guide that they may use hands-on after the conference.    

 

Producers point of view 

by Frans van Gestel (Topkapi Films)

On the basis of several mini case studies, the participants will be guided us through the life line of film in terms of marketing.

 

Acquisition and international markets

by Ingrid Pittana (SquareOne Entertainment)

A glimpse in the world of acquisitions, and dos and don’ts related to it.

 

Sales Agency & Distribution Agreements

by Joris Van Wijk (JC Van Wijk)

In this presentation we'll get into the legal aspects of marketing and releasing your film, locally and internationally. Why is "the legal thing" important? Because if this is not arranged well, you'll never see a dime out of the exploitation of your film. This presentation will attempt to show you how money disappears in film distribution. We'll also discuss the participants' experiences in local and international distribution, so we can learn from each other's success and failure.

 

International Sales Process

by Susan Wendt (TrustNordisk)What is the role of a sales agent, and what specifically does a sales agent do? Who is the right sales agent for your film? What to be aware of when chosing a sales agent? Which kind of films does the international market  want today? The year in festivals.

 

Distribution and Marketing

by Pim Hermeling (Wild Bunch Benelux Distribution, Head of Studies of EAVE Film Marketing Workshop) & Ingrid Pittana (SquareOne Entertainment)

The profession of a distributor: how does a distributor get his films, what is his or her relation towards sales agents, producers, directors?

 

Festivals and Publicity

by Barbara van Lombeek (The PR Factory)

This presentation is about the cheapest part of a film’s marketing campaign: free publicity. If you understand how the media work and make the most out of a festival selection, you can save a lot of money on advertising costs. And besides, is a raving review not much more effective than a full-page ad? 

 

Trailers & Showreels

by Fraser Bensted (Picture Production Company)

The theoretical and creative process of producing audio visual marketing materials and the impact they have on the positioning of a film and its target audience. Including the role of the sales promo, opportunities for teaser and special shoot trailers, documentary trailers and trailers for international territories.

 

Online Marketing

by Dan Light (Glass Eye)

We will be looking at the myriad ways in which films can be marketed online, focusing in particular on opportunities arising out of the emergence of the social web, and the platforms that drive it: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and many others. This will include an analysis of how best to create content for and manage community within these spaces, including a look at unique opportunities available to today's film-makers to make interactive platforms and media integrated and financially viable strands of the stories they want to tell.

 

Private tutorials with the experts

Niko von Glasow & Xiaoxiao Sun, Palladio Film, Germany; project: Girl from Tibet, director: Niko von Glasow

This year’s TIES THAT BIND projects represent a rich diversity of different genres.

Philippine project THE SIGBIN CHRONICLES (producer: Bianca Balbuena) is the story of two outcasts – a hit-man about to embark on his last mission, and an introverted performer stuck in his call-centre job – both seeking inspiration and protection from the harsh realities of their lives through the coveted and feared creature of Philippine mythology, the Sigbin. The project has been selected for “La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde” at this year’s Cannes film festival.

Belgian producer Aurélien Bodinaux’s project THE RIVER OF CLOUD is the story of Lu who lives a perfect life in southern China, but when she discovers she is pregnant with a second child, her world falls apart. Lu must choose between her need for emancipation and her marriage. If she dares to keep the baby, she’ll destroy her family. 

Jeremy Chua’s project A YELLOW BIRD is a story of a man just released from prison who is not welcomed home by his mother. Eager to locate his wife and daughter to build a new home, he instead learns that his past actions have led to irreversible tragedy. This empowers him to save his daughter, at any cost to himself. 

Japanese producer Shoko Hirano will present the project FAT CHANCE, in which Artur, a heavy drinking Estonian ex-Olympic wrestler, is forced to take on the role of sumo coach and lead his troubled team to the European Championships, in order to be allowed to visit his daughter in her foster home. He soon realizes that the role of a sumo trainer is not so much about organizing a team as about building a family; quite a task considering he has so far failed miserably as a father. 

Lihong Kong’s project BETRAYAL – THE STORY OF MR. ZHANG is based on the true story of Zhang Xianchi, an idealistic communist, who betrays his nationalist father and is subsequently forced, step by step, to become a rightist, an anti-communist, and is finally condemned to a labour camp at the age of 23. This initial betrayal poisons his every relationship, including that with his political ‘father’ and mentor. 

Vanna-Pond Noigasame produces Thai director Towira Pimpaka’s latest project MALARIA AND MOSQUITOS brings the story of Nawda, a Karen widow, who is stuck in a primitive Karen village near the Thai-Burmese border while the outside world develops and modernizes. She risks changing her life, allowing love to lead her to new experiences, all the while maintaining the strong belief that if she is accepted as a Thai, it will bring her happiness.

Judith Nora from France comes with the new project of US indie director Jordan Schiele: DOG DAYS in which Lulu, an overworked single-mother in provincial China, confronts a gay lounge singer, Sunny, about a disappearance of her boyfriend and their son. Initially sceptical of Sunny's promise to help her, Lulu embarks with him on an uncertain journey to find her boyfriend and get back her son. 

In Finnish project KYOTO GIRLS (producer: Merja Ritola), Miki, a Finnish man, is obsessed with perfection and Japan. He wants to go to Japan to become the perfect fighter, a ninja, to find his soul mate, and to be worthy of this perfect woman, a geisha. But, he ends up working as a host in a bar for not-so-perfect Japanese women; which offers unforeseen pleasures.

Dutch producer Reinette van de Stadt’s HONG KONG SISTERS is the story of Jade, who after witnessing the loss of her husband and daughter in a tragic car crash, decides she no longer wants to live, but her much younger half-sister, Pearl, causes her to delay following through on her decision.

German director Niko von Glasow’s and Xiaoxaio Sun’s German-Chinese co-production GIRL FROM TIBET features a modern day Heidi: a Tibetan girl who is inadvertently delivered in a box to a rich, neurotic, Jewish family in New York City. She needs the help of the weak, neuroses-riddled son to face the vast, dangerous, but also entertaining, journey home.

TIES THAT BIND is organised by the Friuli Venezia Giulia Audiovisual Fund, EAVE, Udine Far East Film Festival, Busan International Film Festival, Asian Film Market and Asian Project Market, in cooperation withFestival Scope and supported by MEDIA Mundus.

WEBDOX - An international opportunity for interactive webdocumentaries

In May 2013 MEDIA Desk Flanders, Flanders Audiovisual Fund and iDROPS organised the second edition of WEBDOX, next to the one-day conference there were two creative labs: DOCJAM and DOX&TECH. Again it was an amazing experience! Participants went home satisfied with what they've learned, the people they've met, the productive ideas they've created in a short time and of course the fun they've had.

Now we are continuing on September 30th in Ghent with a special workshop with Sharon Daniel, an award-winning webdocumentary artist and professor of digital arts from California. Daniel’s work has been exhibited internationally at museums and festivals, her essays have been published in books and professional journals.

During the first part she will present her work and after the break you get the chance to personally meet her, ask her questions and get feedback on your ideas and projects. (from 3pm until 7pm)

This event is a forerunner of the development lab "Doc Hothouse" which will take place during the Ghent Filmfestival, from October 10th till 12th.

During this Lab we support participants to implement their ideas and enhance their chances to obtain financial support from the Journalismfund.eu for doing research.

The journalismfund.eu stimulates quality, in-depth journalism in Flanders and Europe. Pitch your documentary idea at Doc Hot House to the organisation and get advice on how to make your idea more eligible for funding through Journalismfund.eu and increase your chances of getting a working grant from the organisation.

If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us: herlinde@idrops.be

EXTENDED DEADLINE: EAVE 2014 EUROPEAN PRODUCER WORKSHOP

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: EAVE 2014 EUROPEAN PRODUCERS WORKSHOP - EXTENDED DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 27, 2013

EAVE, European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs, is one of the leading training and development providers for producers in Europe, renowned for its European Producers Workshop.

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/November, 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 a pre-selection of candidates will take place in autumn 2013 and the selection will be announced in December 2013. The 3 workshops take place during March 10 - 17 in Luxembourg (LU), June 16 - 23 in Bolzano/South Tyrol (IT) and October/November (tbc) in Istanbul (TR, tbc) 2014.

Introduction to Marketing 

by Pim Hermeling (Wild Bunch Benelux Distribution, Head of Studies of EAVE Film Marketing Workshop) & Frans van Gestel (Topkapi Films)

Film marketing is much more than only a poster and a trailer. It’s a combination of many different elements. Marketing is about selling your film to a specific group of people.

 

Producers and Moviegoers 

by Sarah Calderon (The Film Agency)

 "Producers and Moviegoers" is a short seminar providing basic marketing knowledge usable by producers. During the first part, some hints and tips about the well-known "business to business (b2b) tools" will be introduced. In the second part, we will dig deeper by dealing with the "business to consumer (b2c) tools" that would allow producers to establish a professional marketing plan taking their core audience in account. The structure of the conference and powerpoint presentation is conceived to provide the participants a guide that they may use hands-on after the conference.    

 

Producers point of view 

by Frans van Gestel (Topkapi Films)

On the basis of several mini case studies, the participants will be guided us through the life line of film in terms of marketing.

 

Acquisition and international markets

by Ingrid Pittana (SquareOne Entertainment)

A glimpse in the world of acquisitions, and dos and don’ts related to it.

 

Sales Agency & Distribution Agreements

by Joris Van Wijk (JC Van Wijk)

In this presentation we'll get into the legal aspects of marketing and releasing your film, locally and internationally. Why is "the legal thing" important? Because if this is not arranged well, you'll never see a dime out of the exploitation of your film. This presentation will attempt to show you how money disappears in film distribution. We'll also discuss the participants' experiences in local and international distribution, so we can learn from each other's success and failure.

 

International Sales Process

by Susan Wendt (TrustNordisk)What is the role of a sales agent, and what specifically does a sales agent do? Who is the right sales agent for your film? What to be aware of when chosing a sales agent? Which kind of films does the international market  want today? The year in festivals.

 

Distribution and Marketing

by Pim Hermeling (Wild Bunch Benelux Distribution, Head of Studies of EAVE Film Marketing Workshop) & Ingrid Pittana (SquareOne Entertainment)

The profession of a distributor: how does a distributor get his films, what is his or her relation towards sales agents, producers, directors?

 

Festivals and Publicity

by Barbara van Lombeek (The PR Factory)

This presentation is about the cheapest part of a film’s marketing campaign: free publicity. If you understand how the media work and make the most out of a festival selection, you can save a lot of money on advertising costs. And besides, is a raving review not much more effective than a full-page ad? 

 

Trailers & Showreels

by Fraser Bensted (Picture Production Company)

The theoretical and creative process of producing audio visual marketing materials and the impact they have on the positioning of a film and its target audience. Including the role of the sales promo, opportunities for teaser and special shoot trailers, documentary trailers and trailers for international territories.

 

Online Marketing

by Dan Light (Glass Eye)

We will be looking at the myriad ways in which films can be marketed online, focusing in particular on opportunities arising out of the emergence of the social web, and the platforms that drive it: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and many others. This will include an analysis of how best to create content for and manage community within these spaces, including a look at unique opportunities available to today's film-makers to make interactive platforms and media integrated and financially viable strands of the stories they want to tell.

 

Private tutorials with the experts

This year’s TIES THAT BIND projects represent a rich diversity of different genres.

Philippine project THE SIGBIN CHRONICLES (producer: Bianca Balbuena) is the story of two outcasts – a hit-man about to embark on his last mission, and an introverted performer stuck in his call-centre job – both seeking inspiration and protection from the harsh realities of their lives through the coveted and feared creature of Philippine mythology, the Sigbin. The project has been selected for “La Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde” at this year’s Cannes film festival.

Belgian producer Aurélien Bodinaux’s project THE RIVER OF CLOUD is the story of Lu who lives a perfect life in southern China, but when she discovers she is pregnant with a second child, her world falls apart. Lu must choose between her need for emancipation and her marriage. If she dares to keep the baby, she’ll destroy her family. 

Jeremy Chua’s project A YELLOW BIRD is a story of a man just released from prison who is not welcomed home by his mother. Eager to locate his wife and daughter to build a new home, he instead learns that his past actions have led to irreversible tragedy. This empowers him to save his daughter, at any cost to himself. 

Japanese producer Shoko Hirano will present the project FAT CHANCE, in which Artur, a heavy drinking Estonian ex-Olympic wrestler, is forced to take on the role of sumo coach and lead his troubled team to the European Championships, in order to be allowed to visit his daughter in her foster home. He soon realizes that the role of a sumo trainer is not so much about organizing a team as about building a family; quite a task considering he has so far failed miserably as a father. 

Lihong Kong’s project BETRAYAL – THE STORY OF MR. ZHANG is based on the true story of Zhang Xianchi, an idealistic communist, who betrays his nationalist father and is subsequently forced, step by step, to become a rightist, an anti-communist, and is finally condemned to a labour camp at the age of 23. This initial betrayal poisons his every relationship, including that with his political ‘father’ and mentor. 

Vanna-Pond Noigasame produces Thai director Towira Pimpaka’s latest project MALARIA AND MOSQUITOS brings the story of Nawda, a Karen widow, who is stuck in a primitive Karen village near the Thai-Burmese border while the outside world develops and modernizes. She risks changing her life, allowing love to lead her to new experiences, all the while maintaining the strong belief that if she is accepted as a Thai, it will bring her happiness.

Judith Nora from France comes with the new project of US indie director Jordan Schiele: DOG DAYS in which Lulu, an overworked single-mother in provincial China, confronts a gay lounge singer, Sunny, about a disappearance of her boyfriend and their son. Initially sceptical of Sunny's promise to help her, Lulu embarks with him on an uncertain journey to find her boyfriend and get back her son. 

In Finnish project KYOTO GIRLS (producer: Merja Ritola), Miki, a Finnish man, is obsessed with perfection and Japan. He wants to go to Japan to become the perfect fighter, a ninja, to find his soul mate, and to be worthy of this perfect woman, a geisha. But, he ends up working as a host in a bar for not-so-perfect Japanese women; which offers unforeseen pleasures.

Dutch producer Reinette van de Stadt’s HONG KONG SISTERS is the story of Jade, who after witnessing the loss of her husband and daughter in a tragic car crash, decides she no longer wants to live, but her much younger half-sister, Pearl, causes her to delay following through on her decision.

German director Niko von Glasow’s and Xiaoxaio Sun’s German-Chinese co-production GIRL FROM TIBET features a modern day Heidi: a Tibetan girl who is inadvertently delivered in a box to a rich, neurotic, Jewish family in New York City. She needs the help of the weak, neuroses-riddled son to face the vast, dangerous, but also entertaining, journey home.

TIES THAT BIND is organised by the Friuli Venezia Giulia Audiovisual Fund, EAVE, Udine Far East Film Festival, Busan International Film Festival, Asian Film Market and Asian Project Market, in cooperation with Festival Scope and supported by MEDIA Mundus.

EAVE launches the first edition of EAVE PLUS!

EAVE launches the first edition of EAVE PLUS!

 

12 experienced producers, 6 high-profile industry experts, 4 days to discuss their company structures, management practices and new business models – this is the formula of EAVE’s latest brainchild EAVE+.

Held in Luxembourg from September 19-23, 2013 at the hotel Le Place D’Armes and supported by the MEDIA Programme of the EU and the Luxembourg Film Fund, EAVE+ goes into the first round.

"I'm thrilled at the idea of all these experienced producers, locked up in a think tank situation for 4 days, trying to put their brains together in order to imagine solutions today for the challenges that awaits our industry tomorrow;" comments Jani Thiltges, EAVE’s Head of Studies.  

Led by EAVE Head of Studies Jani Thiltges (Samsa Film, LU) together with EAVE+ consultant Michael Weber (The Match Factory, DE), keynote sessions by international guests will be mixed with group work session and 1-2-1 meetings.

As EAVE’s CEO Kristina Trapp states : "There was a strong demand from more experienced producers for networking at another level, being able to discuss issues of company growth and sustainabilty, rather than exchanging about individual projects. We clearly felt that the timing was right for EAVE+ and are very satisfied how well the idea was received by the industry, including the invited key note speakers."

Among the guests at the first edition of EAVE+ are US indie producer Mike S. Ryan (Greyshack Films, US), who will present the perspective from America, talking about private equity and where to find the money post 2008. Bo Ehrhardt (Nimbus Film, DK) will give a walk-through of Nimbus' many successes, failures and how to survive in an ever-changing business environment. Andrew Doherty (Doc&Co Digital, formerly Head of iTunes Europe) will talk about the future of VoD and present the current opportunities. Management coach Michael Comyn (IE) will work with the producers on leadership, management skills and personal resilience. (Exhaustive pitch of the sessions below)

Jani Thiltges :"What a great bunch of experts we managed to bring to Luxembourg! I'm sure their experiences, including their failures, will enlighten our discussions on how to become  better producers."  

The selected producers include: Hanneke Niens (KeyFilm, NL), producer of Oscar® nominated feature Twin Sisters, the producer of the 2013 Cannes competition title Heli, Titus Kreyenberg (unafilm, DE), Marko Röhr and Ilkka Matila of one of the leading Finnish production companys MRP Matila Röhr Productions as well as Italian producer Carlo Cresta-Dina (Tempesta, IT/UK). (Exhaustive list of participants below)

EAVE+ will be organised twice a year in Luxembourg with different keynote speakers and topics addressed at each workshop session.

 

EXHAUSTIVE LIST KEYNOTE SESSIONS EAVE+: 

Michael Comyn: Leadership Resilience

The workshop consists of two elements - A group session where we will touch on the following four areas:

Part One - The History of Stress and Resilience?

The word stress is searched 9,140,000 times a month on Google, yet there are so many myths about the subject that affect our thinking on the subject… in this first part of the presentation we take a quick look at the history of stress and set up some of the myths for a closer look.

Part Two - The Role of Sleep and Fatigue!

We’ve spent a lot of time coaching individuals around the subject of resilience and top of the list is the challenge of getting a great night’s sleep. It can’t be overestimated how valuable proper rest is when it comes to maintaining personal resilience.  We’ve drawn together the best research on the matter and plan to get you thinking about counting sheep and catching your eight hours.

Part Three - The Brain’s Role in Resilience - Meet your Amygdala!

What happens to our decision making ability in the presence of fear and or anxiety.  We look at some of the sneaky things our brain gets up to when we perceive stress and what we can learn from resilient individuals when they are faced with the same challenges.  We’ll visit catastrophic thinking and mind reading and a few other tricks our amygdala likes to use to get our attention.

Part Four - Immunity to Change - What we can learn from Cardiac Patients?

Cardiologists tell us that only one in seven cardiac patients are compliant with their life saving medication!  So what can we do to overcome a reluctance to personal change, especially around activities like sleep, diet, exercise, relaxation and meditation.  We’ll finish our presentation by running you through the well proven Immunity to Change exercises - and leave you with an insight into how to get your goals back on track. 

This workshop is followed up by one to one coaching sessions with participants over the course of the event where they will get a debrief on the content of the TalentQ profiles. These profiles will be completed prior to the event.

 

Bo Ehrhardt: Company case study

Trial and errors from DOGMA to NORDIC NOIR

It's the history of a Danish indie production house, Nimbus Film, that will make way for a presentation as to how filmmaking, distribution and financing has undergone some radical changes through-out the last 20 years. It will be a walk-through of Nimbus' many successes, failures and how to survive in an ever changing business environment, but always with one lead focus: how to create and bring good stories to the screen. 

 

Mike S. Ryan: The US Independents

Private Equity and the US independents

In the fall of 2008 the Real Estate bubble popped in the United States and our financial foundation was revealed to be composed of lies, false hopes and utter fiction.  We then saw a simultaneous pop in the film bubble at Sundance 2009 with the plunge in film acquisition prices. Combine that with lower admissions in the under 30 year old demographic and product glut due to reduced production costs and you have a perfect storm causing industry shakeout and implosion. Yet despite the resulting increase in wealth gap between the one percent and the upper middle class, private equity investment in film is still strong and common. The 2008 collapse has caused a reordering of wealth and a new class of young billionaires has emerged that defines value and return on investment differently than the  past older elite establishment. Anyone who tries to define a films value in the same terms used pre 2008 is way out of step with the expectations of current new equity investors. As content providers, how can we, creative producers, dance to this new beat or move to change the beat? How are we to reconfigure our own goals and self-perception in this new landscape?  Lets talk about actual current perceptions and ways of being that are directly connected to how money is moved in this new era of arts finance.   Post 2008, wealth has been re-arranged, yet there is a place at this new, more lavish table, I see that a seat is in fact being held for us.

 

Andy Docherty: VoD and the Future

Having launched the first video stores for iTunes in Europe, Andy Docherty will explore the current potential for premium VOD for Independent filmmakers and look to the future and where VOD is heading.  There are lessons to be learnt from the last 5-6 years, which can help prepare content owners and producers for the next 5 years of upheaval.  Recent advances and changes in technology have changed the face of content consumption forever and those who have embraced the change are flourishing, while those who have fought the changes and tried to preserve old world thinking, risk being left behind.  What can European indies do to respond positively to what is an uncertain playing field and maximize future opportunities.

Key Topics to be explored include: 

- What is the current opportunity?

-  How has technological change impacted consumption of content?

-  How can indies take advantage and maximize the wider opportunity for digital?

-  The future of VOD

Dear EAVE producers,

Pitcher Perfect is a training course organised by the European Women's Audiovisual Network, which will be hosted in Barcelona from October 25-27, aimed at producers and directors with a project but who need that extra bit of confidence/skill in pitching their project and who would like to bring it to the attention of industry experts and other producers. 

The course tutor, Jan Miller, is a highly experienced, internationally recognised pitching trainer who has won countless awards for her commitment to women in the industry and to developing the perfect pitch. This actual course has been devised after lengthy consultations with industry experts from many film funds, training courses and festivals and aims to provide the perfect nurturing environment for participants to benefit as much as possible from those hosting and teaching at the event. 

For EWA members there is a 10% discount on the full participation fee of €330 (you can sign up to EWA as a member now if you wish - www.ewawomen.com) and the course is open to men and women - full course details and the application form are attached. 

SPECIAL FOR EAVE PRODUCERS: EWA will offer a 10% discount also to EAVE producers applying to this training course

In addition to the 3-day pitching component there will also be in-depth presentations on co-productions and on the final day,  pitches will be analysed and observed by a number of industry experts who will give their feedback, including Fabien Westerhoff, Hanway Films, Gavin Humphries - the award-winning producer of "The real social network" and "The Curse", which won Director's Fortnight in Cannes 2012, Josephine Rose, UK, Emily Mann and  the multiple award-winning Turkish producer Zeynep Ozbatur - as well as other experts, including Alessia Sonaglioni from Eurimages and more.

If you are interested in signing up or if you would like to recommend the course to a producer or director who would really benefit from developing this skillset please fill in the application form and send it to us at: contact@ewawomen.com
