ALAN FOUNTAIN SCHOLARSHIP FUND


As we announced earlier, our beloved longtime collaborator, Alan Fountain, died earlier this month. Alan Fountain initially joined EAVE in 2000 and since that time actively served in several  important capacities,  from Head of Studies to our President. During his time with EAVE, he worked directly with over 1000 participants – from every corner of Europe as well as many from the rest of the world – doubtlessly changing their careers and profoundly affecting their professional lives.

A scholarship has been set up in the name of, and especially to honour the memory of Alan Fountain, who passed away on March 3, the opening day of this year’s first EAVE Producers Workshop. Donations are now being collected for the EAVE ALAN FOUNTAIN INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND.

The goal of EAVE ALAN FOUNTAIN INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND is to enable one producer from outside the EU, and preferably with a documentary project, to participate in all three sessions of the EAVE Producers Workshop each year.

ALAN FOUNTAIN SCHOLARSHIP FUND

As we announced earlier, our beloved longtime collaborator, mentor and friend, Alan Fountain, died earlier this month. Alan Fountain initially joined EAVE in 2000 and since that time actively served in several  important capacities,  from Head of Studies to our President. During his time with EAVE, he worked directly with over 1000 participants – from every corner of Europe as well as many from the rest of the world – doubtlessly changing their careers and profoundly affecting their professional lives.

A scholarship has been set up in the name of, and especially to honour the memory of Alan Fountain, who passed away on March 3, the opening day of this year’s first EAVE Producers Workshop. Donations are now being collected for the EAVE ALAN FOUNTAIN INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND.

The goal of EAVE ALAN FOUNTAIN INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND is to enable one producer from outside the EU, and preferably with a documentary project, to participate in all three sessions of the EAVE Producers Workshop each year.

To make a donation for the EAVE ALAN FOUNTAIN INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND, please find the PayPal link and bank details herehttp://eave.org/news/alan-fountain-scholarship/

Following the call for projects, a committee will select a dozen film projects that will be invited to participate in the first edition of OUAGA FILM LAB. The main selection criterion is primarily the artistic quality of the projects and the subject matter.

Apply now to participate in SOFA – School of Film Agents

The deadline is 5 May 2016

The workshop initiative will take place in the European Cultural Capital city of Wroclaw, Poland, from 19-28 August 2016

SOFA – School of Film Agents is a workshop initiative that was brought to life by Nikolaj Nikitin. Founded in 2013, the unique workshop offers young “film agents” from Central and Eastern Europe, Germany and Central Asia the opportunity to work together with experts on their projects aimed at the development of their respective regional film cultures and industries.

In addition to this call for submissions, SOFA is pleased to announce an exciting, new opportunity for former workshop participants from Central and Eastern Europe. Thanks to the generous support of the Goethe-Institut, SOFA-Alumni are invited to come to Germany for one month to participate in a creative fellowship as well as to take part in a German language course. By placing former participants in creative fellowships within German film, cultural and media institutions that purposefully reflect the ideas and goals of SOFA-Alumnis’ dream projects, the Goethe-Institut is not only making it possible for these participants to come closer to realising their projects, but to also acquiring invaluable practical, international experiences in their field via cultural exchange. After the overwhelming response to last year’s “Call for Submissions” – with over 100 applications from 25 countries – SOFA is now accepting new applications for 2016 until 6 May 2016.

Applications for 2016 should contain the following information:

• A maximum two-page project description: what is the idea and motivation behind your project? Where exactly will this project take place/be realised? A particular place/location? Tell us about your goals, project objectives, your vision and what makes your project so unique. Tell us exactly why YOU are the right person to make this project come to life.

• One page with information about a prospective budget for the project. Your budget does not need to be calculated down to the very last cent. Rather, please try to communicate an overall estimation of the potential costs involved in the realisation of your project as well as ideas about possible types of funding/potential financial resources for the project.

• A professional biography with background information about how you came to be active in the film industry. Please send your application via email to: nikolaj@joinsofa.org As in previous years, this year’s selected SOFA participants along with workshop experts and lecturers will be announced during the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.

Great news for this year’s SOFA workshop participants! For the second year in a row, the Goethe-Insitut is offering some extra “added value” to the already well-established SOFA programme: some of SOFA’s former participants will be able to take part in a creative stipendium in a German company of their choice. This opportunity will offer participants the chance to improve and develop the quality of their projects as well as to strengthen their own personal and professional goals.

Applications for SOFA 2016 may be submitted immediately. The deadline is 5 May 2016.

SOFA – School of Film Agents is a joint project of the Filmplus gUG (Cologne) and the Fundacja Filmplus (Warsaw) together with the city of Wroclaw (Breslau) and the Polish Film Institute, funded by the Foundation for Polish-German Cooperation, the German (Federal Foreign Office, the International Visegrad Fund, the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, the New Horizons Association, the Ministry of Culture of Serbia, EAVE – European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs, the Slovak Film Institute, Mozinet, the International Film Festival Karlovy Vary and supported by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut in Poland (Krakow), Serbia, Romania, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Moscow and its Head Office in Munich, Germany, as well as the support of the Film Commission Poland and the Wroclaw Film Commission.

The award will be presented during Polish Days awards ceremony on July 29th 2016 by EAVE’s CEO – Kristina Trapp, who welcomes the new collaboration with undisguised excitement: "Over the last couple of years, we have witnessed at EAVE a young generation of strong producing talent. Recent Polish projects developed at EAVE and supported by PISF such as UNITED STATES OF LOVE (directed by Tomasz Wasilewski) that received Silver Bear at Berlinale 2016 and THE HERE AFTER by Magnus von Horn screened in Directors Fortnight at Cannes 2015, illustrate this trend. We are extremely delighted that the Polish Film Institute supports upcoming producers in their international careers and could not imagine a better platform for this cooperation than the New Horizons International Film Festival, renowned for presenting uncompromising, innovative and original cinema from all over the world that explores new horizons in film language, expression and storytelling." 

Magdalena Sroka, General Director of Polish Film Institute said: "Polish producers who took part in EAVE workshops over the past few years went on to become active contributors to the European audiovisual market. It’s not just a question of expanding their professional network or assimilating theoretical knowledge of international co-productions; a key outcome is that now they do indeed produce films with European partners. That is why I’m very glad to step up our cooperation with EAVE. I hope that presenting this award at Polish Days will encourage Polish producers to have their pitches even more meticulously prepared. A good pitch is one of the best tools for understanding one's own film project."

Joanna Łapinska, Artistic Director of the T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival, Head of the Polish Days, confirms that the new collaboration between EAVE and Polish Film Institute that will have its finale during the festival in Wroclaw, is particularly important for the Polish film industry: "The interest in Polish cinema has visibly increased recently and so did the openness of Polish film industry toward the international collaboration. Over the past years we have worked on creating a significant platform where the Polish and foreign film professionals would meet and talk about Polish films. This award and this partnership prove to be the best quality mark for the Polish Days. But first and foremost it is a one-off chance for the Polish projects that look for the opportunities to enhance. I do believe that Polish cinema will make the most of it."

OBITUARY: ALAN FOUNTAIN

 

EAVE mourns the loss of our beloved President, Alan Fountain.  

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that EAVE, on the opening day of this year's Producers Workshop, received the very sad news that our friend and mentor, Alan Fountain, passed away earlier that morning.

The EAVE community would like to express to family our love and admiration for their husband, father, and gradfather; we send our warmest condolesences to them.

Alan Fountain initially joined us in 2000, since then actively serving in several positions from Head of Studies to President. He worked with over 1000 participants – from every corner of Europe as well as many from the rest of the world – doubtlessly changing their careers and affecting their professional lives profoundly.

Alan was one of the most influential figures in the media world; during his professional career he worked in the UK with Middlesex University, Mondial Television & Mondial Online, Sheffield Hallam University, Channel 4 Television and the Sheffield International Documentary Film Festival. 

Alan is the author of various articles on film and media related issues, on the future of Public Service Television and, as co-editor, ‘The Alternative Media Handbook’, (Routledge 2008).   

His rich and varied career was dedicated to supporting independent voices from different regions of the world, empowering and encouraging producers, directors and writers to tell stories that not only affect audiences but create positive change. 

A unique professional, a wonderful listener and a lovely companion, Alan contributed greatly to EAVE's growth, strength and excellence in the last 16 years.   

More importantly, Alan managed to bring out the best in every individual on the EAVE team and he did it with grace and great kindness. 

Alan, we will miss you.
