THE GREAT TRAM ROBBERY by Slobodan Sijan, producer: EAVE graduate Marko Paljic, co-producers: EAVE graduates Borislav Chouckov, Artemio Benki, Rut Oplatkova, Sinisa Juricic, Bostjan Virc is in pre-production. The film tells the story about Belgrade’s golden age of in the roaring 1920s, and is set against a backdrop of court intrigue and communist plotting in the then Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The main character is a historical figure, the poet, film critic and director Bosko Tokin, who gathers together a group of idealistic young artists in an attempt to make the first avant-garde film in the Balkans. The film was made but later mysteriously disappeared, and the story continues in 1946 when Tokin is imprisoned by the new communist regime as a collaborator for writing film reviews during the German occupation, and his film is, strangely, the focus of his interrogators' questions. The Support comes from the Bulgarian National Film Center’s Minority CoProduction Fund, Film Center Serbia, Czech Film Fund, Slovenian Film Center, HAVC-Croatian Audio Visual Center, Film Center Montenegro, and MEDIA - Creative Europe. The project received Jury Special Mention Awards at Cinelink, Sarajevo and Fest Forward, Belgrade.

THE ETERNITY PACKAGE by EAVE graduate and Bulgarian National Coordinator Magdelena Ilieva is in pre-production. The film is about a funeral director in a declining Bulgarian town, who lives an undisturbed existence until his father and co-owner of their funeral agency suddenly keels over after a joyous night of drinking and dies. While prepping his father’s body in the funeral home, there is an incessant knocking on the door. Apparently, a woman, ANKA, wants to organize her own funeral in two weeks’ time. After learning that Anka is in absolutely perfect health and seemingly has no reason to die, this is too much for Bobby who badly needs to say fuck you to death. Bobby ruthlessly plots against Anka’s suspected suicide and this paradoxically leads to a bizarre friendship between them. It serves as a great escape for Bobby from the grieving for his father, from his sister who is after him for money for her share of the funeral agency, and from town corruption. Ilieva’s feature film debut is being produced by Martichka Bozhilova of Agitprop. It was granted production funding by the Bulgarian National Television, received a development grant by the Creative Europe MEDIA program and recently won the Best Pitch Postproduction prize at PriFORUM Prishtina International Film Festival. The project was selected to the Berlinale Talent Project Market, the Midpoint Intensive at Karlovy Vary IFF, and the Thessaloniki Crossroads Co-production Forum.

EAVE project BULLHORN LULLABY now in production

EAVE project BULLHORN LULLABY by Viktor Oszkár Nagy, producer: EAVE graduate Sara Laszlo is in production. The story of the film revolves around big, brawny Gyula (35, played by András Ötvös), who is a true football fan. The "Kinizsi Black Army" – a racist gang of hooligans - are his second family. He has two really important people in his life: the leader of the gang, Alex (40 - Szabolcs Thuróczy), and Mariann (35 - Angéla Stefanovics), his wife, who desperately wants a baby. It turns out that Gyula is infertile, so their only option is to adopt. This plan fails, however, because Gyula is caught up in one of his regular violent clashes in the streets. In her desperation, Mariann chooses an illegal path. She closes a deal with a pregnant, teenage Gypsy girl (Lüszi, 16 - Viola Lotti Gombó) living in state foster care: they will adopt the girl's unwanted newborn and pretend that it was Mariann who gave birth. This crazy plan changes their lives forever… The film is being co-produced by Sparks Camera & Lighting, and has secured support from the Hungarian National Film Fund and the Hungarian tax credit. The shoot will take place across various different locations in Budapest from 1 July-30 August. The Hungarian theatrical distribution will be handled by Vertigo Media, while the international sales are being overseen by HNFF World Sales.

The film has received support by the Finnish Film Foundation.

LOSERS REVOLUTION by Thomas Ancora and Grégory Beghin, producer: EAVE graduate Annabella Nezri is in production. Simon, Mehdi and Fred, three childhood friends, are invited to the burial of Juan, an old classmate who has one last wish: that the boys take revenge over their former tormentors by throwing his ashes over them at the school reunion and creating a “losers’ revolution” movement on social media. But with only 12 followers, it’s not all that easy to create a buzz. Who better, then, than Henry, Simon’s little brother and reality TV star-come-social media guru, to help them achieve their aim? There’s only one tiny problem: Henry and Simon despise one another. Wallonia-Brussels Federation Film and Audiovisual Centre, RTBF and Proximu support the film.
Annabella Nezri is currently also producing JUMBO, the first feature film by Zoé Wittock, and is making arrangements for another first feature film, Olivier Pairoux’s family film THE HIGHEST STEP IN THE WORLD, to be shot at the end of the summer.

DRUK by Thomas Vinterberg, co-producers: EAVE graduates Arnold Heslenfeld, Laurette Schillings & Frans van Gestel is in production. Thomas Vinterberg has resumed the filming of his upcoming drama. Shooting commenced in early May and will now continue until the end of July in Copenhagen and northern Zealand before moving to Sweden and the Västra Gotäland region. Mads Mikkelsen plays the role of secondary-school teacher Martin, who, along with his three friends and colleagues, decides to look into a theory that claims that alcohol in the blood opens the mind to the outside world, makes problems less acute and increases creativity. And so the four friends try out an experiment and are thus constantly intoxicated in their everyday lives. The initial results are quite encouraging, as the gang loosens up, which also intrigues their students. Nevertheless, as the experiment progresses, the consequences start to become more and more severe. DRUK is being produced by Zentropa Entertainments3, and is being co-produced by Sweden’s Film i Väst, Zentropa Sweden, the Netherlands’ Topkapi Films and Zentropa Netherlands. It has received support from the Danish Film Institute, TV2 Denmark, Eurimages, the Netherlands Film Fund, the Swedish Film Institute, the Netherlands Film Production Incentive and the Creative Europe MEDIA programme.

THE YEAR BEFORE THE WAR by Davis Simanis, producer: EAVE FFF graduate Roberts Vinovskis is in production. In this project, Simanis is exploring the theme of wartime in Latvia. He tells the story of a young man taking part in the creation of a new world. This mysterious adventurer is swept up on a tragicomic and surreal journey from a routine clerk’s job and a passionate romance in Riga to the preparation of a global revolution in Vienna, a psychoanalysis with Freud and seduction by Mata Hari in Paris. The film will make use of the stylisation typical of silent cinema and will show different characters embodying the political and philosophical extremes of the 1910s. THE YEAR BEFORE THE WAR is being produced by EAVE FFF graduate Roberts Vinovskis for Latvia's Locomotive Productions, in co-production with Lithuania's Studio Uljana Kim and the Czech Republic's Produkce Radim Prochazka. The making of this feature is being supported by the Lithuanian Film Centre, the National Film Centre of Latvia and the Czech Film Commission. The summer period of principal photography, scheduled to end at the beginning of July, includes 33 shooting days and is taking place on location in Latvia and in the Czech Republic.

WHITE PLASTIC SKY by Tibor Banoczki and Sarolta Szabo, producer: EAVE graduate Juraj Krasnohorsky is in production. The film is set in 2219. Fertile soil has disappeared from the Earth. The survival of humanity hangs on a transgenic plant, able to grow from living human flesh only, using the body as soil. The city of Budapest lives in total isolation. On every citizen’s 50th birthday, he or she is transported to a place called the Plantation, to be “implanted”. Stefan is a 28-year-old psychiatrist who helps people accept this order until the day his wife, Nora, undergoes voluntary implantation. „Right now there is the shooting of live-action parts going on in Budapest. We are planning to start with animation in July 2019,“ producer Juraj Krasnohorsky said. The film is funded by the Slovak Audiovisual Fund and is supported by the Hungarian National Film Fund.

NAUFRAGES now in post-production

NAUFRAGES by Dominique Lienhard, producer: EAVE graduate Julie Esparbes is in post-production. The story, adapted by the director from Akira Yoshimura’s novel of the same name, is set in the 16th century, in a remote fishing village nestled between the sea and the mountains. In the absence of his father, and encouraged by his mother, ten-year-old Alan becomes the man of the house and is thus let in on the secrets of his village of wreckers. One night, a boat runs aground on the beach... Produced by Paris-based outfit Offshore and by Belgian firm Hélicotronc, NAUFRAGES has secured backing from the CNC’s advance on receipts and from the regional authorities in Corsica, where the shoot took place.

www.helicotronc.com

ROUNS by EAVE graduate Stefan Komandarev has finished production. The Bulgarian/Serbian co-production supported by Eurimages is a sequel to the director’s previous Bulgarian/German/Macedonian film DIRECTIONS. The script is based on real events and people. The plot revolves around 3 pairs of officers on service with their patrol cars within 24 hours. “It is important to underline that the story happens in the night of 9 to 10 November 2019, when the world will commemorate 30 years since the fall of the Berlin wall and Bulgaria celebrates 30 years since the fall of communism. Therefore, the most important questions I am asking myself are: What is happening in Bulgaria now; where are we headed; how will our children live?” Komandarev said. All episodes are shot in a single hand-held shot, without editing cuts. Due to the length of the episodes the actors were able to act together.
The film was shot during the winter of 2018 in Sofia. It was preceded by a trial shooting with a small camera. Bulgaria’s Argo Film is producing in cooperation with Serbia’s SEE Film PRO with financial participation of France’s Deuxième Ligne Films and EZ Films. The Bulgarian National Film Center and Film Center Serbia supported the film.

EAVE Producers Workshop 2020 - Call for applications

Deadline: August 30, 2019
EAVE 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, documentary and TV series, 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.

Call for applications: EAVE Producers Workshop 2020 - deadline August 30, 2019

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, documentary and TV series, 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.

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.
