Some voices from the previous editions:
«A group retreat for 4 days. What a wonderful breaktime in our daily rushed routine to think together and put in perspective our place and ideas regarding our fast-changing Industry. Beautiful moments of sharing, bonding, exchanging and engaging with each other. Graceful, emotional and magical experience.»
Hengameh Panahi, Celluloid Dreams, France
«EAVE+ provides a safe and informal situation in which participants and experts share their knowledge and emotions within their professional life. Therefore this four days 'deep dive' into film producing motivated and enriched my future as a professional.»
Frans van Gestel, Topkapi Films, The Netherlands
«Exactly what we needed at exactly the right time in terms of some creative Blue Sky thinking about the direction of the company and its growth as we enter into our second decade in business.»
Triona Campbell, Beactive S.A., Portugal
«I thought it was a great four days and served as a real think tank for experienced producers to gain perspective on our changing world.»
Mike S. Ryan, Greyshack Films, USA
«The EAVE+ workshop was extremely useful on many levels - practical information on a range of subjects from promoting films on VoD platforms to how to work on one's resilience in stressful situations to raising private equity and managing those investor relationships. The networking element also really paid off in terms of finding a co-producer with access to a national fund in a country where one of my projects takes place, and that funding application is now underway.»
Natasha Dack, Tigerlily Films, UK
«It was the perfect moment for me and my partner to come to EAVE +, … (the) best moment to take a look… and see how it works for people with (the) same passion, but living and working in a completely different environment.»
Fernando Epstein, Mutante Cine, Uruguay
