EAVE@Santiago de Compostela October 2018

General introduction

In the last decades, EAVE has become one of the leading producers’ training and development programmes in Europe and has created a unique pan-Europeannetwork of over 2,000 professionals.

Over the last years, EAVE has expanded its training opportunities beyond the borders of Europe: with new partnerships in Latin America, the Middle East, the former Soviet states, Africa, North America and Asia, EAVE has opened new windows of cooperation at a global scale.

Our flagship programme is the EAVE PRODUCERS WORKSHOP. It is a Project based yearly training programme including 3-weeks residential workshops.

EAVE is the most relevant and successful training programme for international co-production with exceptionally good results in terms of box office, sales and distribution and festival exposure.

We are delighted to bring EAVE workshop 3 in Santiago de Compostela in 2018 (October 22-29, 2018).

Apart from those Spanish producers who attend all three workshops during the year and those producers who have become part of the EAVE network over the years – what are the additional benefits to the industry in Galicia and its producers:

EAVE organises a tailor-made workshop for local producers in parallel to the main workshop: ‘EAVE@Santiago de Compostela’. With our partner and other relevant organisations we plan two days of sessions delivered by EAVE experts.

- All plenary sessions, including particular areas of producing and new developments in the industry, will be open for local professionals to attend.

- Special additional sessions will be tailor-made for selected Galician participants.

We bring 50 producers from 36 countries as well as the EAVE pedagogical team to learn first hand more about the local industry and to meet and network with local producers.

EAVE@Santiago de Compostela

All plenary sessions of the workshop will be open for all interested industry professionals and film students to attend. Registration is required (due to space limitation). Registration will be announced as soon as the workshop schedule has been finalized in September.

To apply for this special programme, please send the application form, as well as other documents specified in it, to satu@eave.org by September 4, 2018.

Tailor-made programme for locals will depend on the selection and wishes of the participants (on topics such as career development, company planning, co-production finance, legal issues of co-production, sales and distribution, the international market, festival strategies, marketing).

The focus is on creative European fictional features with a strong quality appeal in the phase of (post-) production that are seeking partners, financiers, distribution and/or world sales.

Around 25 productions and co-productions will be selected and presented to a circle of International industry professionals with plenty of time for one-to-one meetings during the event. By the time of the pitch, an excerpt that adequately represents your film will be required. Each presentation is scheduled for a max. of 15 minutes. Once your project is invited, European Work in Progress Cologne will participate in the costs for your traveling and, of course, take care of your accommodation.

A jury will award three projects with vouchers for post-production services worth € 20,000 and € 15,000 endowed by the MMC Studios as well as a voucher for sound-post-production services in the amount of € 10,000 endowed by K13.

European Work in Progress Cologne will be accompanied by various panel discussions in cooperation with Creative Europe Desk NRW and EAVE.
