SARAH CALDERON - CLASSIC & ALTERNATIVE DISTRIBUTION / plenary at Producers Workshop 2

Producers nowadays are confronted with a distribution model in transition. Although new release patterns like VOD, DAY-AND-DATE and EVENT-CINEMA should be opportunities, the lack of flexibility in the classic model and the absolute protection of the theatrical window as the temple of cinema, are blocking innovation and access to young audiences. Films for teenagers and young adults (particularly male skew) are not finding their audiences in the theatrical window. Producers have a hard time choosing other models to reach them since the financing and distribution system is not adapted to the new models. This increases the gap between young audiences and indie cinema.

THE SUNLIT NIGHT shooting now

  • THE SUNLIT NIGHT by David Wnendt, producer: EAVE graduate Ruben Thorkildsen is shooting. The script of Rebecca Dinerstein’s successful first novel of the same name, which was adapted by the writer herself for the big screen, follows the story of a bizarre pair - namely American painter and art student, Frances, and émigré Yasha - who meet in the far north of Norway. Frances is there to kick off her career while Yasha has come to bury his father in the land of the Vikings. At the northernmost pole of the planet, not too far from the Arctic Circle, they will rid themselves of their past, as well as discovering the future which lies ahead of them and a family they never knew they had. Principal photography kicked off in April in New York City, while filming in Norway is set to start this summer. Wnendt has received a contribution of 2 million Norwegian kroner from the Norwegian Film Institute. The film is being produced by Fabian Gasmia for Hamburg-based firm Detailfilm and Ruben Thorkildsen for Norwegian outfit Ape&Bjørn, in co-operation with American producers Michael B. Clark, Alex Turtletaub and one of the lead actors, Jenny Slate.

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.

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 60-70 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 2018 and the selection will be announced in December 2018. The 3 workshops take place during March 8 - 15 in Luxembourg (LU), June (dates TBC) in Serbia, and October (dates TBC) in Leipzig (DE), 2019.
