  •  TAJ MAHAL by Nicolas Saada, producer: EAVE group leader Patrick Sobelman is filming. Based on the November 2008 attacks in Mumbai that shook the city to its very core, the story revolves around Louise, an 18-year-old girl who is leaving with her family to go to India, where her father has just got a job. The family is initially put up in a suite in the luxurious Taj Mahal hotel. One evening, while her parents are out having dinner in the city, she is alone in her bedroom and starts to hear strange noises coming from the hotel corridors. Within minutes she realises that a terrorist attack is under way. Her only link to the outside world is her phone, which allows her to stay in contact with her father, who desperately tries to reach her in a city plunged into chaos. Co-produced by France 3 Cinéma and pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature is also supported by the advance on receipts of the CNC and by Backup Films. The filming schedule includes a three-week shoot in India and five weeks of shooting in a studio in the Paris region.

  • L’EFFET AQUATIQUE by Solveig Anspach, producer: EAVE group leader Patrick Sobelman started shooting. Written by the director together with Jean-Luc Gaget, the story sees Samir, who works as a crane operator in Montreuil, fall head over heels in love with Agathe, who he bumps into in a café one day. When he finds out that she is a lifeguard at the municipal swimming pool, he cannot think of any other way of getting close to her than to sign up for swimming classes with her – even though he can swim perfectly well already… The film is co-produced by Icelandic company Zik Zak, pre-purchased by OCS (Orange Cinéma Séries), backing from the Indéfilms Sofica and aid from the Icelandic Film Center, among other support. The shoot will take place for ten days in Montreuil, before continuing in Reykjavik for 20 days next May.

EAVE project STAGE FRIGHT now in post-production

  • EAVE 2012 project STAGE FRIGHT by Yorgos Zois, producer: EAVE 2012 graduate Maria Drandaki is in post-production. The film is a Greek-Croatian-French-Dutch coproduction with EAVE 2007 graduate Sinisa Juricic co-producing. The plot is centered on the most anticipated avant-garde theatre play of the year, when seven armed persons enter the stage randomly choosing people from the audience and asking them to co-create a new devised play with the cast. But with one condition: everything has to be real, from the performances to the bullets. The Croatian Audiovisual Center is supporting the film with a minority coproduction grant. The project won the TFL Production Award at TorinoFilmLab in 2012 and the CNC Award at CineLink at Sarajevo IFF in 2011. It was also selected in l'Atelier du Festival de Cannes in 2013.

Some comments from the previous editions:

«I thought it was a great four days and served as a real think tank for experienced producers to gain perspective on our changing world.»

Mike S. Ryan, Greyshack Films, USA

 

«The EAVE+ workshop was extremely useful on many levels - practical information on a range of subjects from promoting films on VoD platforms to how to work on one's resilience in stressful situations to raising private equity and managing those investor relationships. The networking element also really paid off in terms of finding a co-producer with access to a national fund in a country where one of my projects takes place, and that funding application is now underway.»

Natasha Dack, Tigerlily Films, UK 

 

«It was hugely inspiring and interesting to look back and forward at our companies and the ever changing film environment in a greatly open atmosphere with an international group of colleague creative entrepreneurs. Priceless and inspiring to share thoughts and ideas, weakness and strengths about leading our companies and the ever changing film environment.» 

Hanneke Niens, KeyFilm, The Netherlands
 

 

«It was the perfect moment for me and my partner to come to EAVE +, … (the) best moment to take a look… and see how it works for people with (the) same passion, but living and working in a completely different environment.»

Fernando Epstein, Mutante Cine, Uruguay

 

«The combination of people both participants and experts was magnificent and lead to a complete openness that I could not have imagined possible between a group of professionals at this stage of their careers. It was like an AA for producers, very painful but critical for our wellbeing. I am looking at everything since quite differently.»

Christine Alderson, Ipso Facto Films, UK

 

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

EAVE+ is supported by the MEDIA Programme of the EU and the Luxembourg Film Fund.
