ALAN FOUNTAIN SCHOLARSHIP FUND
As we announced earlier, our beloved longtime collaborator, Alan Fountain, died earlier this month. Alan Fountain initially joined EAVE in 2000 and since that time actively served in several important capacities, from Head of Studies to our President. During his time with EAVE, he worked directly with over 1000 participants – from every corner of Europe as well as many from the rest of the world – doubtlessly changing their careers and profoundly affecting their professional lives.
A scholarship has been set up in the name of, and especially to honour the memory of Alan Fountain, who passed away on March 3, the opening day of this year’s first EAVE Producers Workshop. Donations are now being collected for the EAVE ALAN FOUNTAIN INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND.
The goal of EAVE ALAN FOUNTAIN INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND is to enable one producer from outside the EU, and preferably with a documentary project, to participate in all three sessions of the EAVE Producers Workshop each year.

EAVE is Europe’s leading training, development and networking organization for producers. In addition to our flagship programme, the renowned EAVE Producers Workshop, we are involved in a variety of programmes in Europe, Asia, Latin America, Russia, Africa and the Middle East.
Founded in 1988, our objective is to provide professional training opportunities and to bring producers from different regions of the world together with the aim of facilitating co-production relationships. EAVE’s unique international network now comprises over 1,700 producers and key decision makers (funders, sales agents, distributors, commissioning editors etc.).
Alan Fountain, with grace, intelligence and kindness, was instrumental in growing EAVE and contributing to our ability to realise its goal of excellence. We all miss him.
