Crowdfunding AGUJERO NEGRO (BLACK HOLE) and LIGHT YEARS

AGUJERO NEGRO (BLACK HOLE), written and directed by Diego Araujo, produced and co-written by PUENTES graduate Hanne-Lovise Skartveit is in pre-production.

„The shoot starts in three weeks (August 8th to 27th) and we still need $25,000 for the film to be 100% financed. We have launched a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo to raise the last funds that we need for the shoot. Making independent film is hard everywhere, but here in Ecuador the film community is facing particular challenges this year. Ecuador is going through an economic crisis and the first victims of the government's  budget cuts were culture and the arts. AGUJERO NEGRO is director Diego Araujo and producer Hanne-Lovise Skartveit's second feature, a romantic comedy in black and white about a 30-year-old writer struggling to grow up, which we think will appeal to both cinephiles and (closeted) romantics who appreciate a fresh take on the genre. With the cast and crew we have put together, we believe that AGUJERO NEGRO will be both a visually, sonically and emotionally powerful - and funny! - film. While image and sound is planned in great detail to convey the subjective emotional journey of the main character, the actors will be given the freedom to improvise over scripted dialogue, contributing to the fresh, heartfelt and playful tone we want the film to have.“

Call for applications: EAVE Producers Workshop 2017 - deadline September 16, 2016

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.

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, 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 workshop 50-60 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.

Application deadline – 30th of September 2016

They eventually pitch their projects in front of a panel of professionals: over 55 producers, financers, buyers, and distributors.

European Short Pitch aims to bring young European talents into the spotlight, give them a high-end promotion opportunity, and develop short film coproduction in Europe. This initiative is about enhancing economic viability and European visibility for short film projects.From the previous editions (2007-2016), around 220 projects were presented that have resulted so far in the making of 82 short films – many of them having a very successful international career.

Who can apply?

European Short Pitch is open to creative teams developing international short film projects. It is therefore open to writers, directors, and producers.Writer-directors developing a project on their own are very welcome to participate in the programme. Yet it is strongly advised to already have nationally a production company interested or attached to the project, especially at the time of the coproduction forum (23rd -26th March 2017).

The author(s) of the script has to be between 18 and 35 years of age on the closing date of the call for projects (30th of September 2016).

His/her nationality or country of residence should be one of the member countries of the Creative Europe Programme (European Union + Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Iceland, Georgia, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway and Turkey).

FROM PRODUCERS TO PRODUCERS

The annual invitation by the Swiss producers for a peer to peer exchange with producers from other countries at the Locarno Film Festival

What are the opportunities and risks for smaller European countries to (co)-produce successful films within the international community?

A model without automatic support

How should one reward a box office success and festival success? The Danish Film Institute abolished automatic funding five years ago for another model. That option was initially deplored by the Danish film producers, but is now established as solid market oriented scheme.

Claus Ladegaard, Head of Film Funding at the Danish Film Institute, will explain the currentscheme, and a renowned Danish producer will tell about his experience with it. The debate will focus on the selection and funding criteria and their effect on the box office results of the films. A reconciliation between art and commerce?

Favorable conditions to be attractive for coproductions

In addition, the debate is intended to shed light on how small countries can be attractivefor co-productions. Per Neumann, founder and CEO of European Film Bonds, will present strategic opportunities and relate some successful co-productions and the needed know how to make them successful.

A broad scope of themes to be shared and discussed in a moderated presentation and debate for the first half of the meeting, and in an informal part – a cocktail reception – in the second half.

Registration deadline: 29 July 2016. The event is free of charge but prior registration is compulsory at: www.focal.ch/FPtP_ch
