Film Finance Forum 2012
An intensive four day workshop for European and international professionals on European film finance providing an exploration and update of the latest financial developments and funding sources in Europe.
April 19 - 22, 2012 Luxembourg
EAVE Film Finance Forum 2012 takes place during April 19-22 in Luxembourg. It is an intensive four day workshop for European and international professionals on European film finance.
The EAVE Film Finance Forum provides an exploration and update of the latest financial developments and funding sources in Europe. It includes sessions on public and private finance, co-production, tax incentives, the sales and distribution market, banking services and new industry trends. Since most films produced in Europe are made with low to medium budgets, the Finance Forum will focus on its participants' real financial situation and provide them with solutions adapted to their needs and projects.
How does it work?
The workshop takes the form of an inclusive round table with presentations on various up-to-date topics followed by open discussion with the participants and leading industry experts from the finance and film businesses. In order to achieve a maximum level of interactivity the total number of participants is limited. This enables an approach focused on a small group and the specific needs of each participant as well as facilitating networking between participants and experts.
Leading European experts
The Film Finance Forum's team is composed of leading experts (subject to change). The 2011 edition included: Christian Kmiotek (Head of Studies, Film Finance Forum & independent film finance expert), Christophe Bruncher (Les Films de la Butte), Carl Clifton (K5 International), Maud Leclair (BNP Paribas), Joëlle Levie (OLFFI), Stefan Rüll (Rüll Law Office) and Bernhard Stampfer (BS Media Finance Advisory).
Who can apply?
The Film Finance Forum is targeted to producers and associated film industry professionals, members of the financial and legal communities, policy makers, and consultants. It is also open to non-EU applicants, thanks to the support of MEDIA Mundus.
The selection of the candidates is based on the application file submitted by each applicant according to the form provided. EAVE evaluates the quality of the candidate's company, his/her and the company's track record and the level of professional background of the candidate(s). Priority is given to applicants working within independent and/or small and medium sized companies.
