Upcoming deadlines

Warsaw Kids Film Forum is now accepting applications for its international pitching forum 

Deadline: 30 June

We are now accepting applications for projects to take part in the pitch session during Warsaw Kids Film Forum. Poland’s first international forum for films and television series aimed at children. The forum will take place from the 27th – 29th of September 2017, in Warsaw during the 4th edition of The Kids Film Festival. We are accepting applications until June 30th. 

The goal of the Warsaw Kids Film Forum is to create a meeting place for film industry professionals who are interested in creating content for children. We will bring together countries from our region, where creating content for children is in its infancy, with professionals from countries where productions aimed at children are a regular part of the industry. The forum will be an opportunity to connect with: producers, distributors, sales agents, funding institutions, and film festival representatives. We want to create a space that will be practically helpful; connecting projects with potential co-producers, distributors and festivals; as well as educational, where the industry can discover the newest trends. 

During the Warsaw Kids Film Forum between 20 and 24 projects will take part in the pitch session, projects of feature films and television series who are searching for coproducers, distributors or financing. The winner of the best pitch will be invited to present their project during The Financing Forum for Kids Content 2018, in Malmo. There will also be “Work in Progress” screenings for select Polish projects. As well as the opportunity to consult ideas for projects, aimed at children, at One-To-One meetings with script doctors, sales agents and distributors. 

The forum is being organized for the film and media industries in Poland and Europe, with an emphasis on presenting projects from Central and Eastern Europe as well as the Baltic states. We are inviting: producers, writers, directors, distributors, sales agents, funding institutions, as well as others interested in creating culture for children.

Warsaw Kids Film Forum has opened registration for the Pitching session; applications can be submitted until June 30th, through the online form at www.warsawkidsff.pl. Taking part in the pitch session as well as the pitching workshops is free of charge.  Projects being developed at Kids Film Pro, a development program of films for children www.kdpro.pl will also be presented during the forum. 

What kind of projects are we looking for?

Projects from Poland and Europe: in development, at treatment phase, with a script or in early production.

Projects with a screenwriter and a producer on board (a director is not required).

Feature films, animations, documentaries as well as TV series for children.

Call for applications: EAVE Producers Workshop 2018 - deadline September 1, 2017

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

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 2017 and the selection will be announced in December 2017. The 3 workshops take place during March 8 - 15 in Luxembourg (LU), June (dates TBC) in Stavanger (NO) and October (dates TBC) in Santiago de Compostela (ES), 2018.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: September 1, 2017
