A film about faith, the power of belief and about the small vile deeds surrounding popular saints.

INNER GHOSTS now in post-production

  • INNER GHOSTS by João Alves, written and produced by EAVE graduate Paulo Leite is in post-production. The horror film’s plot is about a woman who gave up on her life as a medium. She receives a gift from the afterlife: a device that can perform wonderful things – at a price.

KESSELS is a crazy ride in an American old timer from the provincial town of Tilburg to the Hamburg Reeperbahn and back.

Donate to the EAVE Alan Fountain International Scholarship Fund

A scholarship has been set up to honour the memory of Alan Fountain, former Head of Studies and President of EAVE, who passed away on March 3. Its goal is to enable one producer from outside the EU to participate in all three sessions of the EAVE Producers Workshop each year.
