EAVE August News 2019


Call for applications: EAVE Producers Workshop 2020 - EXTENDED deadline September 6, 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. 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 2019 and the selection will be announced in December 2019. The 3 workshops take place from March 6 - 13 in Luxembourg (LU), June 8 - 15 in Galway (IE), and October 19 - 26 in Rijeka/Opatija (HR), 2020.

EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: September 6, 2019

MEMORY HOUSE by João Paulo Miranda Maria, producer: EAVE graduate and Group Leader Didar Domehri is in production. The story, written by the director, revolves around Cristovam, a native from the Brazilian hinterland, who works in a milk factory in a prosperous former Austrian colony in Brazil. He feels lonely and ostracised because of cultural and ethnic differences. One day, he discovers an abandoned house filled with objects that remind him of his origins. He slowly settles in this house. Curiously, more objects start to appear without explanation, as if the place were “alive”. Seeing no other way to stand the present, he turns into a man-animal. Emptied of his conscience, deprived of social contact and disconnected from his humanity, he regains his freedom by transforming into a half-man, half-beef creature. Produced by Maneki Films together with Brazil’s Bossa Nova, MEMORY HOUSE has secured backing from the CNC’s World Cinema Support, the Hubert Bals Fund Europe and the Fundo Setorial do Audiovisual.

ONE FOR ALL by David Ilundain, producers: EAVE graduates Adrià Monés (Fasten Films) and Valérie Delpierre (Inicia Films). The movie recounts how a supply teacher takes on the task of serving as a year-seven tutor in a town he is totally unfamiliar with. When he finds out that he has to reintegrate a sick student back into the classroom, he runs up against a huge problem: none of his schoolmates wants him to return to class. This is a story of self-improvement and hope, which talks about the need to forgive – and to know how to ask for forgiveness – in an environment shot through with obvious cultural and generational differences. ONE FOR ALL poses the question: what’s the point of fighting and learning? With the collaboration of RTVE, Movistar + and TV3; and the support of ICAA - Ministerio de Cultura de España, MEDIA Creative Europe, ICEC - Generalitat de Catalunya and Gobierno de Navarra.

THE OFFERING by Ventura Durall, produced by EAVE graduates Adrià Monés (Fasten Films) and Dan Wechsler (Bordcadre Films) in co-production with TV3 and the support of A punt, ICEC - Generalitat de Catalunya and IVC - Institut Valencià de Cultura.

EXTENDED Deadline for applications: September 13

EAVE Marketing Workshop - November 5-10, 2019 (Luxembourg)

A five-days immersive Audience-focused workshop exploring 360º film marketing by gaining insight about the classic tools and the latest trends in Digital PR, social media management, digital marketing and Audience building.

EAVE offers a tailor-made workshop embracing the importance of marketing techniques and Audience-centered strategies. Co-Heads of Studies Alya Belgaroui-Degalet and Sarah Calderón have designed a unique programme where participants are collectively working on the group’s projects more than half of the time. Inspired by the EAVE sharing pedagogy, Design Thinking techniques and visual, tangible and ludic exercises, the sessions are equally creative, innovative and strategic. The result is a hands-on approach with concrete tools that anyone can apply immediately within their own team in today’s and tomorrow’s industry. This casual way of learning facilitates network and community building across countries from all over the world.

The 30 carefully selected participants will have a full overview of the actual marketing trades in terms of targeting and positioning from international sales strategies to national release and also generating awareness all across the release process including festivals.

Participants can apply with or without a project at any stage of production to work with cutting-edge marketing specialists, such as Alya Belgaroui-Degalet (Wild Bunch – international sales marketing) and Sarah Calderon (The Film Agency – marketing consultant) as Heads of Studies and contributors like Michael Arnon (Wolf Consultants – PR), Boris Pugnet (former Head of Marketing at Le Pacte / Editor at Turn Right), Sally Hodgson (PIPOCA, UK) and others to come. This selective group of experts go beyond their own field of marketing and get involved in other experts sessions sharing their complementary experience.

The workshop is targeted at producers as well as professionals working in sales, distribution and marketing departments.  We also welcome applications from related areas of the industry (e.g. regional and national funding institutions, film festivals and markets etc.) and from relevant trainers and consultants who want to innovate in their marketing techniques. The two groups that will be working during the entire workshop are balanced in terms of all the above-mentioned trades of the film industry in order to nourish as much as possible the different perspectives.

NEW PARTNERSHIPS

EAVE is also proud to announce new and ongoing steady partnerships this year. We will select participants from Warsaw Kids Film Forum, Financing Forum for Kids Content Malmö, Thessaloniki Crossroads, CEE Animation Workshop and LA INCUBADORA.
