- MELTEM by Basile Doganis, co-producer: EAVE graduate Fenia Cossovitsa is in in post-production. The story revolves around Elena, a young French woman of Greek heritage, who returns to her holiday home on the isle of Lesbos in July 2015 in order to settle a matter of inheritance one year on from the passing of her mother. She is accompanied by her sidekicks Nassim and Sekou, two young suburbanites who have absolutely no intention of letting their precious holidays be ruined by the economic and migration crisis. But their encounter with Elyas, a young Syrian man who could potentially be one of their own, will propel Elena and her friends in a new direction. Produced by Elzévir Films, co-produced by Greek outfit Blonde Audiovisual Productions and pre-purchased by Ciné+, the feature secured an advance on receipts from the CNC, backing from the Greek Film Centre and French-Greek co-production support.
- THE MIRACLE OF THE SARGASSO SEA by Syllas Tzoumerkas, producers: EAVE graduates Maria Drandaki, Ellen Havenith and EAVE+ graduate Titus Kreyenberg has finished shooting. The story, which bristles with police drama-thriller tension and also has horror undertones, follows two women: Elisabeth, a promiscuous policewoman who sees her life sinking into the abyss of a swampy provincial town; and Rita, a lonely, poor eel-hatchery worker, trapped in the circumstances of her never-changing life. They will discover a striking similarity between them in a bland, heartless world.

The film has received the support of the Greek Film Centre, Film und Medienstiftung NRW, the Netherlands Film Fund, the Netherlands Film Production Incentive, the Swedish Film Institute, ERT SA, Eurimages and MEDIA.
