EAVE Interview with Kesmat El Sayed about Creative Producer Indaba and the ownership of African stories

Kesmat El Sayed, EAVE graduate, Berlinale Talent 2023 and producer from Egypt, recently opened a new office in Berlin to expand SEE MEDIA Production’s premises and start growing her professional roots in Germany.

She talks about her experience participating in Creative Producer Indaba, the training programme by Realness Institute in partnership with European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs (EAVE), International Film Festival Rotterdam Pro (IFFR Pro) and Marrakech International Film Festival (Atlas Workshops) that aims to strengthen African producers' skills and promote co-production within and outside of Africa.


Why did you move to Berlin?

Being based in Egypt and working in documentary or even in fiction is kind of an impossible task as an independent producer, so it made a lot of sense for me to look for another place where there is room to grow and to integrate in the international market. Berlin is a vibrant city with a growing Arab and African community and especially in the arts and film industry. So it makes more sense to be here. Also, not many producers focus on films or artists that come from my region. 

Are you interested in producing stories about your region in Africa for the international market?

I am interested in working with locals, filmmakers who still live in their region, because that's the biggest challenge. They are the least connected, they do not have access, but they have a real presence, they are really undiscovered. At the same time with the flow of artists from the region to Europe they also want to work with a producer that understands and relates to them. 

What has changed since you moved to Europe?

I feel I have better access and understanding of the landscape as a producer since I moved. Now that I have started a company here, there has been more interest in collaboration and partnerships – I am being asked to come on board projects a lot more and have more possibilities of co-production. I think there is interest in this kind of combination of a producer who is originally from the region but based in Europe. This combination is probably comfortable for many artists and filmmakers.

Have you kept your company in Egypt? 

Yes. I have a partner in Egypt and travel there often, so it’s still possible for me to manage things from there. 

Why did you apply to Creative Producer Indaba?

This round was very interesting for me because the programme was looking for African producers who are operating outside of Africa. I wanted to participate as a career participant because I saw during the EAVE Producers Workshop how much the career participants benefit from the programme. At that moment - since I’m doing this big shift and having a different mindset and situation - I felt this was exactly the right fit.

Did it meet your expectations? What did you expect to learn? The last session in Rotterdam is still to come, that will be the highlight of the programme.

The whole team is really caring and genuine. The working sessions with the group leaders Mehret Mandefro and Diana Elbaum – both EAVE experts - were really great. I think their input and coordination and motivation of the discussion was inspiring and insightful.  As for the group of participants, they were really amazing. They all share and care so generously.  There were so many precious moments during the group work.  

Compared to the EAVE Producers Workshop, this workshop was very Africa-centric. This allows access to a space that I relate to more, yet have limited access to actually. I felt very at home in the group we had a lot in common. I can describe it as a mini-EAVE specific to our region - and not just the South or the North, but the entire African continent.

The setting of the Atlas Workshops was interesting because they took place during the Marrakech Film Festival. Since there was a market going on at the same time, we were able to meet informally with the decision makers without having to schedule a meeting. 

Indaba is a continuation of EAVE because they use the same methodology, so it feels very familiar but also more specific to me. 

I also got to meet more experts from the region and enjoyed very much following the discussions with script editors.  It is interesting that they all come from the region even if they are based outside, like Mmabatho Kau, also EAVE graduate and expert.

Can you tell me a few things that are specific to your region that now you focus more on? Are there things that are particularly important in these kinds of training related to Africa?

First of all, the issue of representation is crucial: how do we want to represent our region? It's also very interesting to discuss what the expectations are in Europe for the region and how you want to meet those expectations. For me this is a critical point because there is always some kind of mismatch of expectation. We discussed for example the differences based on how the characters are built: whether they are strong characters or victims, whether they are in certain roles, are they always poor or are they actually in decision-making positions? 

The other discussion that I found very interesting, because I work on historic and archive-based documentary films, is that all the archives in Africa are in European hands, even those that were taken or shot during colonialism. These institutions make it unattainable to produce films with reasonable budgets that would allow us to own our narrative and our history. We have been discussing how to push back and make that claim. If we produce films from our region, we have the right to make films, we have the right to tell our stories, it should not be an obstacle to pay so much money for archives.

Is it much more expensive to get this material compared to European archives?

It is relatively much more expensive, because of course the euro is much more expensive than any local currency. It's always a challenge for local productions. Especially when you are working with a filmmaker for the first time, you have limited access to funding, so you have to produce more sparingly and really take ownership of the story.

In a co-production, the European producer usually has the biggest stake in a project because they have the biggest budget that can fund the archive. So, there is an imbalance. It should not be that way.

Another very interesting presentation was given by producer Steven Markovitz from South Africa who shared with us how he is working on attracting local investors and having a bigger share in the project as a local producer. He tries to co-produce within Africa not just with Europe.  I also found this discussion very insightful on how to have more impact on a project as a smaller and weaker industry, and I think this is very relevant to our situation. 

Are there any major funds in Africa that can be approached or is it more private investment?

There are, and we also talked about how to co-produce within the region. This is something that needs a lot of interaction between producers and spaces where they meet! Usually, we always go to international festivals and meet other European producers, and it's rare to find this combination of exclusively African producers who have the time to really discuss and work and get to know each other. I think this networking effect is also a great value and outcome of Creative Producer Indaba.

I would like to apply to other Realness Institute programmes to meet and spend time with more people in the African industry.

How do you see African cinema in the long run? Do you see the industry changing? What are your thoughts on it?

I feel like the African film industry is really trying to catch up to Europe - it's going to take time, but there are so many people working towards it. I think that's amazing. There is already a lot of interest in Arabic/African content, but the problem is that it is always produced in the same way. The common goal is local production with more local producers, and if it's done that way, it's really empowering, because when you work with majority European production, the Europeans are the ones who benefit the most. There has to be a balance and something has to be given back.

Could you update me a little bit about your project BERLEEN, developed in 2021 at EAVE?

We have received funding from the Red Sea Film Foundation for development and the director Ahmad Abdalla will spend time in Berlin developing the characters and meeting local artists that he wants to feature in the film to finalise the script. At the same time, we have on board now Film Clinic the main Egyptian production and distribution company for independent films in the Arab region. 

As an emerging European producer, I believe it is a perfect start that ties both my worlds together. A story that is genuinely based in Berlin that explores the local Arab community here and that combines cast and crew from both regions. So I am very excited to be working on finding the right crew here in Berlin and securing the financing as well as growing and developing my presence and network in Berlin.

  • FIVE AND A HALF LOVE STORIES IN AN APARTMENT IN VILNIUS by Tomas Vengris, producer: EAVE FFF graduate and Roberts Vinovskis is in post-production. The plot: Five guests experience a crisis of love in an Airbnb in Vilnius, unaware of the stories that have transpired within the same walls and under the same bedsheets. Between each episode, the quiet cleaning lady, Jolanta, arrives to wipe away the evidence of their joys and tragedies, while her own silent love story unfolds. The Lithuanian/Irish/Latvian co-production is produced by Uljana Kim through Lithuanian Studio Uljana Kim and co-produced by Alicia Ni Grhaine through Irish Tiger Darling Production and Roberts Vinovskis through Latvian Studio Locomotive. The project received financial support from the Lithuanian Film Centre, Eurimages, Screen Ireland, the National Film Centre of Latvia, and the Lithuanian Radio and Television Group.

SUNDANCE 2023: 16 films produced by EAVE alumni!

We are proud to announce that 16 films by EAVE producers have been selected for Sundance 2023, including EAVE project MAMI WATA and PUENTES project LA PECERA!

EAVE project MAMI WATA by award winning director C.J. “Fiery” Obasi has been developed at EAVE Producers Workshop 2019 (producer: Oge Obasi).

When the harmony in a village is threatened by outside elements, two sisters must fight to save their people and restore the glory of a mermaid goddess to the land.

PUENTES project LA PECERA is Glorimar Marrero Sánchez's first feature and has been developed at PUENTES 2018 (producer at development stage: Camille Vandenbunder).

As her cancer spreads, Noelia's ultimate decision is to return to her native Vieques, Puerto Rico, and claim her freedom to decide her own fate. She reunites with her friends and family, who are still dealing with the contamination of the U.S. Navy after 60 years of military practices.

  • UN SILENCE by Joachim Lafosse, producer: EAVE graduates Anton Iffland Stettner, Eva Kuperman, Antonino Lombardo and EAVE group leader and EAVE+ Head of Studies Jani Thiltges is in post-production. "The film mainly focuses on the idea of speaking out“, says the director. "With UN SILENCE, I want to try to show why silence is still so powerful, despite the important place given to this beneficial right. I want to try to show and explain why it’s so difficult to speak out." For his film Lafosse has drawn inspiration from a real event, „but what I’m really interested in isn’t the event itself, but the way in which it sheds light on a reality we can all identify with. Speaking out always comes at a cost; those who talk are familiar with this fact. We’ve also only recently learned that in a great many cases, when people speak out, it’s not the criminal who’s excluded from family or social circles, it’s the victim. What I wanted to do with UN SILENCE was to tell an accurate story, with accurate characters, revolving around this incredibly complicated aspect of our existence." UN SILENCE is produced by Anton Iffland Stettner and Eva Kuperman on behalf of Stenola Productions (Belgium), by Jani Thiltges for Samsa Film (Luxembourg), and by Antonino Lombardo for Prime Time (Belgium). In terms of French production, the filmmaker is collaborating with Régine Vial and Alexis Dantec on behalf of Les Films du Losange.

  • MILK TEETH by Sophia Bösch, producers: TTB and EAVE graduate and German National Coordinator Jonas Weydemann and EAVE graduate Karin Koch is in post-production. Swiss-born director Sophia Bösch has been shooting her first feature-length film in Germany. Bösch tells a “modern fairy tale” in which the topics of motherhood and belonging are brought into particular focus. Her protagonist, Edith, moves with her daughter Skalde to a new place, where people do not welcome them very warmly at all. Edith, however, is determined to stay strong in order to build a new life for herself and for her daughter. Skalde tries to find her own way and dissociates herself from her mother in order to ingratiate herself with the community. Later, Skalde finds a foreign child in the woods and needs her mother on her side if she wants to protect it. The film is a German-Swiss co-production between German production company Weydemann Bros and its Swiss partner Dschoint Ventschr Filmproduktion. It is being produced in collaboration with the German and Swiss TV channels SWR, SR, Arte, SRF Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen and SRG SSR. Additional funding has been granted by Creative Europe – MEDIA, HessenFilm, MV Filmförderung, Moin Filmförderung, Medienboard, BKM, DFFF, BAK and the Zürcher Filmstiftung. Shooting took place between mid-July and mid-September in the northern and central eastern regions of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Schleswig-Holstein, Brandenburg and Thuringia. MILK TEETH is scheduled for release in April 2023.

  • RIVER by Orfeas Peretzis, producers: EAVE graduates Konstantinos Vassilaros and Alexandre Gavras is in post-production. The film follows Alkistis, who lives in a family villa with rooms to let on the Athenian Riviera, alongside her mother Anna and their only clients: Petros, a writer; and the Chatzivasilious, an elderly couple. She is devoted to two things: her father, who died in a water-skiing accident, and a palm tree called The Jerry that lives in the front garden. Despite Alkistis' fierce opposition, her mother decides to sell the family villa. Riviera is about Alkistis’ last summer in this house, as she tries to find meaning in a world that is vanishing around her. Peretzis discussed the inspiration for his film: “Riviera is filled with memories from my teenage years, when I used to go on holidays with my grandmother in a seaside town outside of Athens. These memories consisted of run-down villas with dusty old BMWs and Mercedes’ with flat tyres left in the garages. I would hear stories about the owners, how well they lived and the big parties they used to throw. It seems that this past is what identified them.” Riviera is a Greek-French co-production being staged by Konstantinos Vassilaros for Athens-based StudioBauhaus, with Alexandre Gavras (KG Productions), in co-production with ERT SA and Micro Climat Studios. The film has received support from Creative Europe – MEDIA, the Greek Film Centre, the CNC, the Aide à la Coproduction d’Œuvres Cinématographiques Franco-Grecques support fund and the National Centre of Audiovisual Media and Communication - EKOME SA. The project was developed at MIDPOINT Feature Launch 2019 and at the MFI Script2Film Workshops.

  • LA BELLA ESTATE by Laura Luchetti, producer: EAVE graduate Giovanni Pompili, is in post-production. It’s 1938 and we’re in Turin. Ginia is sixteen years old, and the future seems to offer endless possibilities. But her present, like that of others, is overshadowed by the Second World War. Like everyone, Ginia wants to fall in love, and she finds her man in a young painter. She discovers the artistic circles of bohemian Turin thanks to her guide Amelia, a sensual and provocative young woman who’s barely older than Ginia but is so very different from anyone else she’s ever met and is ready to shake up Ginia’s many convictions. Torn between a sense of duty and the discovery of a desire which confuses her, Ginia is overwhelmed by emotions which she doesn’t dare give a name to. During her “beautiful summer”, she finally succumbs to her feelings, celebrating her courage to be herself. LA BELLA ESTATE is produced by Kino Produzioni alongside RAI Cinema, Lucky Red and 9.99 Films, in collaboration with Tapelessfilm, and with the support of the Italian Ministry of Culture, the Film Commission Torino Piemonte and MEDIA.

  • YURT by Nehir Tuna, producer: EAVE graduate Dorothe Beinemeier is in post-production. IThe story of a father who discovers religion and his son who pays the price: this is the focus of YURT (lit. “Dormitory”), a coming-of-age tale that marks the feature debut by Nehir Tuna. It aims to explore a young boy’s loss of innocence as he tries to appease his father’s expectations for his future and his desire for autonomy. YURT is a Turkish-German-French co-production by Tanay Abbasoğlu (TN Yapım) and Dorothe Beinemeier (Red Balloon Film), in co-production with Thierry Lenouvel (Ciné-Sud Promotion). The film has been supported by the Sundance Grant for Production and Development, the Sundance Stars Collective Grant, the MOIN Film Fund Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein, the German-Turkish Co-Production Development Fund and the Nipkow Programme/Berlin Film Residency, and it is a fiscally sponsored project of Film Independent (IFP).

  • CALM IN THE CANOPY by Michal Hogenauer, producer: EAVE graduate and Slovak National Coordinator Katarina Krnacova. M, a well-off, middle-aged man, accidentally spots a suspicious-looking, dark-skinned young man at the airport. An exchange of glances and a few words set into motion a gradually escalating series of events. Anonymous fear, stereotypes and a pervasive sense of danger crawl into M’s lonesome life. In the whirl of the city, M progressively succumbs to the conviction that he has recognised the coming Evil, which needs to be confronted. The project received support from the Czech Film Fund and the Slovak Audiovisual Fund. The film was shot in the Czech Republic (Prague, Pardubice), as well as in Slovakia (Bratislava, the Bratislava region).

Obituary Anita Voorham

The EAVE family mourns the loss of creative producer, writer and script consultant Anita Voorham.

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we received the sad news that Anita passed away recently. She was a beloved member of the EAVE community, EAVE 2018 graduate and EAVE expert, and highly respected professional in the European film industry.

Anita began her career in the writer’s room; story-lining and writing for a number of successful Dutch series, among them “Gooische vrouwen”. She attended the Binger Filmlab as a creative producer, worked as a development executive for Dutch public broadcaster NTR and was invited by Torino FilmLab at its infancy as one of their core tutors. Furthermore, she joined Berlinale Script Station, Venice Biennale Cinema-College, Midpoint and the selection committee for IFFR’s CineMart. She was also a lecturer at EAVE and Midpoint and was a graduate of the EAVE 2018 Producers workshop.

Anita has collaborated on films such as: “Home” by Fien Troch, “Las Herederas” by Marcelo Martinessi, “a Febre” by Maya Darin, “L’Ospite” by Duccio Chiarini, and many others among them “The Fits” by Anna Rose Holmer, “Inexba” by John Trengove, “Touch Me Not” by Adina Pintillie and “A Ciambra” by Jonas Carpignano. She always felt that working on these diverse projects by extraordinary storytellers has been an immensely rewarding expansion of her own life and experiences. Anita is also the coproducer of Fien Trochs latest film “Holly”.

Her rich and varied career was dedicated to supporting singular, original storytellers, exert and refine their voices, develop remarkable projects and attach the right collaborators to successfully finance, produce and bring these projects to their audiences.

Anita was not only a unique professional, but also a wonderful human being full of warmth and light, whose kindness, sensitivity and humour will be fondly remembered.

Our sincere condolences go out to Anita’s wife, family and friends and those many who were so lucky to meet her in their careers.

Anita, we will miss you immensely!

EAVE Marketing Workshop kicks off today!

The 2022 edition of EAVE Marketing Workshop takes place from November 8-13 at Hotel Légère in Luxembourg. The event will be held on site, gathering 34 film professionals from 20 countries to discuss marketing strategies in the film industry.

Inspired by the EAVE sharing pedagogy, Design Thinking techniques and visual, tangible and playful exercises, the sessions are equally creative, innovative and strategic.

This lab is designed to provide an in-depth overview of this sector and will focus in particular on the best strategies to develop your project and effectively place it in the market. The workshop targets independent producers and new talents with an international attitude, who wish to improve their skills and become acquainted with the genre film landscape.

We look forward to being once again inspired all together next January!

Written by the director, the script centres on Ze who’s in his last year of high school; he is 17 years old and a shaman. One day he meets Marla, a delicate but distrustful young woman, who has come to visit Ze’s spirit because of her illness. For Ze, it is love at first sight. When Marla rejects his affection, Ze confronts for the first time the limits of spirituality, love and his own evolution…  Ze is a sober portrait of teenage life in today's Ulaanbaatar. Produced by Katia Khazak and Interchange graduate Charlotte Vincent for Aurora Films, ZE is co-produced by Guru Media (Mongolia), EAVE graduate Filipa Reis from Uma Pedra no Sapato (Portugal), EAVE graduate Denis Vaslin from Volya Films (The Netherlands) and in association with 27 Films Production (Germany).

  • THE WHITE FLASH by Laura Hermanides, producer: EAVE graduate Floor Onrust is shooting her debut fiction feature. The movie tells a true family story rooted in a very authentic, almost forgotten working-class environment in Amsterdam, pushed out of the city centre to the low-rise outskirts. The script focuses on 42-year-old Rick, who, after a long and torturous history of psychiatric problems, has finally received a confirmed date for the requested and much-desired humane termination of his life, which has been full of suffering. The question hovering over this difficult situation is whether his parents will be able to let him go, out of their love for him. The project was developed with the support of the Netherlands Film Fund in 2020 and applied for production support in 2021. The Amsterdam Fund for the Arts granted it, while the rest of the financing came from a crowd funding campaign, support from Swiss distributor Innovative EYE and from Family Affair Films itself.

Written by Kamal Lazraq himself, the story thrusts us into the working-class suburbs of Casablanca where Hassan and Issam, father and son, are trying to get by day-to-day by way of petty crime or jobs for the local mob.

In post-production

  • EAVE project THE HERD by Milko Lazarov, producer: EAVE graduate Veselka Kiryakova is in post-production. As per his previous works, Lazarov has chosen a remote setting for his film, with the villages of Karlukovo and Kamenno Pole - situated in the decaying north-western reaches of Bulgaria - serving as his main locations. The story focuses on Ali, his daughter Tarika, and her grandmother Chrysula, who are leading an isolated life in a village hut near the border. Tarika suffers from a rare bone malformation known as "butterfly wings", an abnormality passed down through the maternal line. Despite having lived in the area for a long time, enjoying a peaceful and harmonious relationship with their neighbours, the family have always been seen as strange. And then, out of nowhere, the animals in the village are struck down by disease, the river dries up, and sick boy Nikola dies after befriending Tarika. Driven by xenophobia and superstition, the villagers become increasingly suspicious and decide to deal with this unusual family themselves. Produced by Red Carpet, with 42film (Germany) and Amour Fou Luxembourg (Luxembourg) acting as co-producers, the film is funded by the Bulgarian National Film Center, MDM, ZDF/arte, Film fund Luxembourg and Eurimages.

WEMW opens the second round of calls for the EAVE Slate and Inspirational Labs!

A few weeks to go before the deadline of the first round of calls dedicated to projects in development and works in progress, and it’s already time to launch a second round of WEMW programmes focusing on career boost, acceleration in strategic company development and reinforced company sustainability.

Starting from today and until November 20, European producers have the chance to apply to the second edition of EAVE Slate, an innovative programme that will offer consultancies on how to build a successful company slate and strategic company planning to companies that are developing a slate of A/V works.

Until November 20, producers coming from Europe, Canada and Latin America will also be able to apply to one of our new Inspirational Labs, a series of mini-workshops meant to stimulate selected participants to develop new content and explore new business models. Run in collaboration with leading training programmes and international partners, the six Labs will offer a deeper insight on drama series content, animation production, impact & outreach strategy, online distribution and co-financing, film genre production and the 2023 WEMW spotlight territories.

Not sure about what event suits you better?

Take the brand new QUIZ to find your way to WEMW 2023! 

All EAVE Slate & Inspirational Labs at a glance!

EAVE Slate

EAVE Slate will select up to 8 companies that are developing a slate of A/V works and will combine the EAVE group work method with a series of plenary sessions and individual consultancies focusing on strategic company planning, potential risk evaluation and company diversification. The main goal is to define realistic short-, mid- and long-term strategies for the selected companies and to outline how to pick the right projects to include in the company slates.

ANIMA SPIRIT | Animation Inspirational Lab

in partnership with CEE Animation Workshop

ANIMA SPIRIT is designed as an entrance door for experienced producers and film companies coming from live action or documentary, wanting to discover the exciting and complex world of animated film production. The lab will combine group work, individual consultancies, and lectures on financial and creative aspects of animation production.

THE ON DEMAND ECOSYSTEM | VOD Inspirational Lab

curated by Silvia Cibien & Agustina Lumi

The VoD Inspirational Lab is a unique opportunity to better understand the diversity of the VOD landscape and the dynamics behind the on-demand ecosystem. Through a series of lectures, case studies and masterclasses, sharing data and know-how on the current VoD market and players, with a focus on Europe and LATAM, the Lab will help the participants to plan ahead the online distribution strategy and co-financing of their content, answering to the audience demand.

GENRE RULES | Fantastic Film Inspirational Lab 
in partnership with the Fantastic Film Forum of the Trieste Science+Fiction Festival
Genre Rules is meant as a hands-on guide to the inner workings of genre cinema. Even though genre movies today are more popular and marketable than ever, producing them may not prove so easy. The genre film industry is highly specialised, with key players, industry events and subgenres of its own, and constantly changing trends. This lab is designed to provide an in-depth overview of this sector and will focus in particular on the best strategies to develop your project and effectively place it in the market. The workshop targets independent producers and new talents with an international attitude, who wish to improve their skills and become acquainted with the genre film landscape.

SELECTION & LOCATION

The final selection of the Labs will be primarily based on the applicant’s profile and motivation, and all selected participants will have the extraordinary opportunity to physically join the full programme of WEMW.

Please note that due to the restricted capacity of our venue, there will be a very limited number of on-site WEMW accreditations and therefore we encourage all professionals keen to join on-site in Trieste next January to apply to one of our activities.

* The participation fee for the EAVE Slate and all Inspirational Labs will be waived for all possible Ukrainian selected participants.

INFO DAY

If you wish to get more info about the Inspirational Labs and the EAVE Slate, please join our INFO DAY on November 2 from 10.00am to 11.00am (CET timezone). To confirm your attendance and get the direct link to the INFO DAY, you need to register by writing to inspiration@wemw.it no later than October 31.

We look forward to being once again inspired all together next January!

CHANGE - Co-production training course: selection announced

We are proud to announce the second round of  CHANGE - a collaboration with EAVE, Europe’s leading training, development, and networking organisation for producers, CPH:DOX, the world leading documentary film festival supporting independent and innovative filmmaking, and IMS, International Media Support, promoting journalism and documentary film to strengthen the capacity of media to reduce conflict, strengthen democracy and facilitate dialogue.

The partners’ goal being to increase equality and access to the international film market, the programme wants to stimulate inter-regional co-production and to connect projects, filmmakers and producers from the European Eastern Partnership countries (EaP) with international film professionals gathered annually at CPH:DOX.

The line-up of selected projects covers a wide variety of current topics spanning from the historical nuclear disarmament of Ukraine and its consequences, Abkhazian and Ukrainian refugees in Georgia, the ongoing non-violent resistance in Belarus, a female filmmaker's gaze in the patriarchal Azerbaijani society on the gradual disappearance of the Caspian Sea, and a year of the current war in the life of four generations of women from Mariupol.

The first workshop of CHANGE - Co-production training course in Tbilisi, Georgia in October-November 2022 will combine masterclasses and group work sessions, as well as individual meetings for the 8 selected producer-director teams. The same participants will continue to work together in the second workshop in January 2023 in one of the countries in the region. The programme will culminate with a third module and presentation of the projects to the international industry at CPH:DOX in Copenhagen in March 2023.

The selected projects are:

  • A Bit of a Stranger, prod. Anna Kapustina, dir. Svitlana Lishchynska, Ukraine
  • Boxes from Georgia, prod. Tiko Nadirashvili, dir. Gvantsa Meparishvili, Georgia
  • How Long is the Echo, prod. Vahan Khachatryan, dir. Merri Mkrtchyan, Armenia
  • Kartli, prod. Ketevan Kipiani, dir. Tamar Kalandadze and Julien Pebrel, Georgia
  • Keepers of Heritage, prod. Irina Gleashvili, dir. Keti Machavariani, Georgia
  • Nuclear-free Ukraine | Nuclear-freeworld, prod. Anna Palenchuk, dir. Kornii Hrytsiuk, Ukraine
  • Strange Sea, prod. Aysel Akhundova, dir. Lala Aliyeva, Azerbaijan
  • Voices.Streams by Belarusian filmmakers DocWave

The objective of the programme is to improve the participants’ skills in defining the content, core and goals of the film projects; in regional and international collaboration and co-production, financing structures and production environment; and in preparing for the encounter with the international market.

As EAVE CEO Kristina Trapp states: “The first edition of CHANGE has not only shown how relevant the programme is, but also how urgent it is to help filmmakers in the region express their voices so that it can be heard in the rest of the world. We are very glad to continue the programme - together with our partners IMS and CPH:DOX - and contribute to the public debate for social, political and cultural change.»

“We were thrilled to see such a strong field of applications from the involved countries and are now looking forward to starting the collaboration with 8 new producer-director teams. It is such a privilege to take part in this. Together we will continue to strengthen the documentary film industry in the region and further add to the results coming out of the first edition of CHANGE”, says Henrik Underbjerg from IMS.

Tereza Simikova, Head of Industry & Training, CPH:DOX says: “The war raging on European soil reminds us all how critical it is to hear the voices of our neighbours on the Russian - and European - doorstep. We are grateful that these filmmakers and their work can help us all understand the challenges and opportunities for our common, democratic, and hopefully soon also peaceful future.”

Participants announced for Second Creative Producer Indaba

Fifteen diverse producers from around the globe have been selected to participate in the second Creative Producer Indaba (CPI) which takes place from 7 November this year online for a week, at the Atlas Workshops (Marrakech International Film Festival) 14 - 17 November and at International Film Festival Rotterdam (25 January – 5 February 2023) in person.

Creative Producer Indaba is presented by Realness Institute, in partnership with EAVE, International Film Festival Rotterdam’s industry initiative IFFR Pro, and the Marrakech International Film Festival’s Atlas Workshops; with the support of IEFTA, Projeto Paradiso and The StoryBoard Collective. The Indaba aims to bring together a hive-mind of producers who are either in the process of developing a film project, or want to collaborate on an African film project, in order to develop their entrepreneurial and leadership expertise, foster their creative skills, and create long-lasting and significant networks.

Selected participants include African producers Marion Isaacs (South Africa), Matheus Mello (Brazil/Mozambique), Bramwel Iro (Kenya), Sawsan Yusuf (Egypt) and  Zoe Ramushu (Zimbabwe/South Africa) who have active film projects in development and are looking for international producers and co-financiers. Their film projects include a heist suspense series, two feature documentary dramas, and two feature dramas.

Film professionals from Africa - Caroline Kganyago-Ralefeta, Lucia Meyer-Marais and Tracey-Lee Rainers (South Africa), Mia Bittar (Sudan) and Pedro Soulé  (Cabo Verde) who have significant stakes in the African film marketplace, with an interest in the development of film projects and co-producing with Africa were selected.

Finally Bartholomeu Luiz (Brazil), Ellen Havenith (Netherlands), Flavia Zanon (Switzerland), Kesmat El Sayed (Egypt/Germany) and Temilola Adebayo (Nigeria /Canada) are all international producers looking to finance projects in Africa, with a view to collaborating on African projects. Luiz is attending through the partnership with Brazilian foundation, Projeto Paradiso.

“We are truly excited about this year’s strong cohort for the Creative Producer Indaba,” says Mehret Mandefro, Director of Development and Partnership, Realness Institute. “These producers represent a diverse range of voices and interests with solid or growing networks from Africa and beyond. Following our highly successful CPI last year we have seen how these intense programmes can provide opportunities for filmmakers to move forward with their ideas and projects.”

Kristina Trapp, CEO at EAVE says “We can no longer work in isolation, or in silos, the world has changed and collaboration is key. The CPI creates a solid and safe space for producers to find solution-driven strategies through sharing skills, ideas and networks. We believe the Indaba will also once again help to connect people in a significant and meaningful way.”

“Worldwide we see the success of these kinds of incubators, where professional development and knowledge-sharing has had a profound effect on producers, who often work tirelessly in isolation with few opportunities to benchmark their skills and share their insights,” says  Inke Van Loocke, Head of IFFR Pro . “We look forward to seeing what sparks are ignited at the Indaba this year, and the impact this will have on the projects in development, and others.”

“We look forward to meeting this cohort at Atlas Workshops, as producers gather to hone their skills and share ideas,” says Thibaut Bracq, Head of Atlas Workshops (Marrakech IFF). “It is our vision to work side by side with a new generation of Moroccan, Arab and African filmmakers, and to create a space for exchange between international professionals and regional talents – and hosting the Creative Producer Indaba participants will certainly help achieve these goals.”

The programme is packed with workshops, discussions, case studies, and one-on-one meetings with mentorship focussed on the development of projects that will take them through the whole scope of skills needed to get a film into production and reach audiences. Group Leaders, Mehret Mandefro and Diana Elbaum, and Story Expert, Mmabatho Kau, will be mentoring these producers, with a host of film industry experts in support.

Elias Ribeiro, Head of Studies and Executive Director of the Realness Institute says “We have a brilliant line-up of experts this year who will be meeting the producers including Femi Odugbemi, Katriel Schory and Dayo Ogunyemi, and IFFR Festival Director Vanja Kaludjercic adding their superb skills, insights and guidance during this time.”

The Creative Producer Indaba is made possible through the support of Documentary Africa, International Emerging Film Talent Association (IEFTA), Institut Français d'Afrique du Sud, the Brazilian foundation Projeto Paradiso, and The Storyboard Collective in partnership with European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs (EAVE), International Film Festival Rotterdam and Marrakech International Film Festival (Atlas Workshops).

  • THE MYTH OF A REAL MAN by Lee Filipovski, producer: EAVE graduate Natasa Damnjanovic is in development. The project is about a Serbian family who hopes to immigrate to Canada. The father must decide between the duty to his homeland and the future of his family, in a pensive recollection of the 1999 bombing of Yugoslavia. As Vasiliye and Katarina Ostrogorsky wait for the response from the Canadian embassy on the status of their visa, their country comes under attack during the 1999. bombing of Yugoslavia. Their twelve-year old son Georgey, who was already grappling with the idea of moving to Canada, now watches his father as he puts on his uniform and answers the call to mobilization to defend a country which he was initially determined to leave. During Vasiliye's absence, the letter from the embassy arrives. As Vasiliye comes back on a day's leave from the military, his wife realizes that his focus has shifted. Instead of taking the chance to escape the country, Vasiliye chooses to return to the army. It will take a heavy air raid on their neighbourhood to make Vasiliye realize the gravity of the situation, and see the consequence of his decision. The project was selected for Montreal New Cinema Festival’s (FNC) international co-production market.

EAVE project THE HERD by Milko Lazarov is shooting

  • EAVE project THE HERD by Milko Lazarov, producer: EAVE graduate Veselka Kiryakova is shooting. As per his previous works, Lazarov has chosen a remote setting for his film, with the villages of Karlukovo and Kamenno Pole - situated in the decaying north-western reaches of Bulgaria - serving as his main locations. Shooting on 35mm film kicked off on the 29th of August in the region of Lukovit city and will continue for 31 days. The story focuses on Ali, his daughter Tarika, and her grandmother Chrysula, who are leading an isolated life in a village hut near the border. Tarika suffers from a rare bone malformation known as "butterfly wings", an abnormality passed down through the maternal line. Despite having lived in the area for a long time, enjoying a peaceful and harmonious relationship with their neighbours, the family have always been seen as strange. And then, out of nowhere, the animals in the village are struck down by disease, the river dries up, and sick boy Nikola dies after befriending Tarika. Driven by xenophobia and superstition, the villagers become increasingly suspicious and decide to deal with this unusual family themselves. Produced by Red Carpet, with 42film (Germany) and Amour Fou Luxembourg (Luxembourg) acting as co-producers, the film is funded by the Bulgarian National Film Center, MDM, ZDF/arte, Film fund Luxembourg and Eurimages.

  • THE EMPIRE by Bruno Dumont, co-producer: EAVE graduate Dorothe Beinemeier is in production. Written by the director, the script is set in a curious sci-fi universe: from the banal daily life of a fisherman’s village on the Opal Coast, emerges the epic parallel life of knights from interplanetary kingdoms. Rival clans are engaged in fierce and bloody battle following the announcement of the birth of Margat, the resurgent Prince, purple and ugly, the Beast of the Endtimes — located here on the Opal Coast, he is the child of a young couple already separated, as is common to life in a working class neighbourhood… Produced by Tessalit Productions, THE EMPIRE is co-produced by Germany’s Red Balloon Film, Italy’s Ascent Film, Belgium’s Novak Prod, and Furyo Films. Pre-bought by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature film is supported by Pictanovo (Hauts de France region), the small-scale co-production deal between France and Germany, Eurimages, the Italian Cultural Ministre, the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, the Film Fund Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein and the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, the CNC’s support to visual or audio creation with the use of digital technologies, and the Cofinova Sofica.

Locations include Lake Peipsi, Narva and Tallinn. The film was backed by the Estonian Film Institute, the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, the Tartu Film Fund, the Ida-Viru Film Fund and the Finnish Film Foundation, and is being made in collaboration with Yle.

EAVE graduates Dyveke Bjørkly Graver and Andrea Berentsen Ottmar set up their own production company, Eye Eye Pictures

  • SABRE by Goran Stankovic and Vladimir Tagic, producer: EAVE graduate Snezana van Houwelingen is in pre-production. The series examines the Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic’s assassination in 2003 and its political repercussions through the eyes of a reporter, a police inspector and a young criminal, while following its impact on their lives. “The murder of Zoran Djindjic is probably the most significant event in Serbia’s recent history. That terrifying act is a perfect mirror of what Serbia was in the 90s, in the 2000s, and what it is today. Like through a cracked mirror we see ourselves and that very process of looking will hopefully help us learn something about ourselves and prevent us from repeating our mistakes. We owe to that man to tell his story, and he obliges us as authors to make that story good enough, multi-layered and complex”, Vladimir Tagic said. The series is produced by Serbia’s This and That Productions in co-production with Croatia’s Drugi Plan and Bulgaria’s Agitprop. SABRE is the first ever international coproduction to benefit from new TV drama fund launched by the Bulgarian National Film Center. Support comes from the Serbian public broadcaster RTS, the Bulgarian National Film Center and the European Union’s Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme. The shooting is expected to commence in the spring of 2023.

  • EAVE graduates Dyveke Bjørkly Graver and Andrea Berentsen Ottmar have set up their own production company, Eye Eye Pictures. Former Oslo Pictures producers were both behind the Cannes-winning and double Oscar-nominated THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD by director Joachim Trier. Besides Trier, Bjørkly Graver and Berentsen Ottmar have brought another visionary Norwegian auteur to Cannes: Kristoffer Borgli, whose satire SICK OF MYSELF world premiered at the festival’s Un Certain Regard strand this year. A string of other talents to watch have directed shorts for the Eye Eye Pictures’ co-heads, including Beeston Film Fest winner André Chocron, SXSW nominee Thea Hvistendahl and Halfdan Ullmann Tøndel, grandson of Ingmar Bergman and Liv Ullmann. “With our new company, we will continue to work on director-driven projects, both from established names and newcomers, across film and TV series, and expand our international network by focusing on co-productions,” said Berentsen Ottmar. The first Eye Eye Pictures project to go into production next year will most probably be Ullmann Tøndel’s debut feature ARMAND.

FÜR IRENA by Giedre Zickyte is now in production

  • FÜR IRENA by Giedre Zickyte, producer: EAVE graduate Pille Rünk is in production. The film zooms in on the last few years of an extraordinary woman, Lithuanian theatre scholar, Germanist professor and Holocaust survivor Irena Veisaite. “Never take revenge,” Irena’s mother told her before she was executed by the Nazis. These words kept Irena from feeling blind hatred even in her darkest hour. Born in 1928, Irena barely escaped perishing in the Kaunas ghetto. She was taken into the Christian family of a Lithuanian woman who had six children of her own. After the Soviets occupied the country, her adoptive mother was deported to Siberia. Losing her two mothers – one Jewish, killed by the Nazis, the other Catholic, sent to the Soviet Gulag – made a huge impact on Irena. In the secret ghetto school, Irena read Schiller’s Ballads, and after the war, she decided to study German literature. As a survivor of two totalitarian regimes, Irena dedicated her whole life to resolving conflicts between people and cultures, and healing trauma in society. Speaking about the project, Zickyte said: “Jerusalem of the North, that’s what Vilnius was called before. More than 95% of Lithuania’s Jewish population was massacred over the three-year German occupation – and that is the highest percentage of Holocaust-related murder in all of Europe. Irena is one of the few who miraculously survived. Twice, in Lithuania’s darkest hours, she was allowed to flee but chose not to (...) This film is going to be my farewell letter to Irena – to the woman who made a huge impact on me with her empathy, intelligence, humanism, commitment to understanding the other, and her vigorously open mind. I miss Irena, especially today, when war has returned to Europe. Everything Irena worried about is now bound to come true. Physically, she is not with us any more, but can her wisdom still guide us and help us survive these burdensome times?” During its development, the project was presented at the DOK Leipzig Co-Pro Market, where it received the Current Time Award. It has also been selected for the Gap-Financing Market at this year’s Venice Production Bridge. FÜR IRENA is being produced by Giedrė Zickyte for Lithuania’s Moonmakers, in co-production with Pille Rünk, of Estonia’s Allfilm, and Martichka Bozhilova, of Bulgaria’s Agitprop. It received support from the Lithuanian Film Centre, Eurimages, the European Union’s MEDIA programme, the Estonian Film Institute, the Bulgarian National Film Center, the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, Vilnius’ Goethe-Institut as well as Baltic pubcasters LRT and ERR.

  • THE EMPIRE by Bruno Dumont, co-producer: EAVE graduate Dorothe Beinemeier is in production. Written by the director, the script is set in a curious sci-fi universe: from the banal daily life of a fisherman’s village on the Opal Coast, emerges the epic parallel life of knights from interplanetary kingdoms. Rival clans are engaged in fierce and bloody battle following the announcement of the birth of Margat, the resurgent Prince, purple and ugly, the Beast of the Endtimes — located here on the Opal Coast, he is the child of a young couple already separated, as is common to life in a working class neighbourhood… . Produced by Tessalit Productions, THE EMPIRE is co-produced by Germany’s Red Balloon Film, Italy’s Ascent Film, Belgium’s Novak Prod, and Furyo Films. Pre-bought by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature film is supported by Pictanovo (Hauts de France region), the small-scale co-production deal between France and Germany, Eurimages, the Italian Cultural Ministre, the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, the Film Fund Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein and the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, the CNC’s support to visual or audio creation with the use of digital technologies, and the Cofinova Sofica.

  • 8 VIEWS OF LAKE BIWA by Marko Raat, co-producers: EAVE graduate Mark Lwoff and Misha Jaari is currently shooting. The film is a complex magical-realist ensemble tragedy, a blend of Baltic and Japanese culture and imagery. The story, loosely based on Max Dauthendey’s eponymous 1911 novel, is told through the prism of the “eight views” art tradition. Estonia’s Allfilm handles production duties, partnering with Mark Lwoff and Misha Jaari, of Helsinki-based Bufo. The animated segments will be created in Hungary. “We are shooting it on location on the Estonian-Russian border, among a community of ‘old believers’,” says producer Dora Nedeczky, referring to the religious refugees who fled Russia in the 17th century. Locations include Lake Peipsi, Narva and Tallinn. The film was backed by the Estonian Film Institute, the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, the Tartu Film Fund, the Ida-Viru Film Fund and the Finnish Film Foundation, and is being made in collaboration with Yle. The project was previously presented at the Baltic Event co-production market in 2020 and at the Marché du Film’s Co-Production Day in 2021. Shooting will continue until September, with a premiere set for 2023.

  • SOUTHERN CHRONICLES by Ignas Miskinis, producer: EAVE graduate Lukas Trimonis is shooting. The film is based on Rimantas Kmita's novel of the same title. In the working-class neighbourhood of the Lithuanian city of Siauliai, a few years after the restoration of the country’s independence, 17-year-old Rimants is more interested in playing rugby, listening to music and dealing on the black market with his friend Minde than studying for school. Rimants is certain that physical strength and money are essential for success in a changing, competitive society. But when he falls in love with the beautiful, middle-class Monika, his faith in love and future is tested. The film is produced by Lukas Trimonis through IN SCRIPT with support from the Lithuanian Film Centre and the national broadcaster LRT. The film is shooting in Siauliai, Vilnius and on the Lithuanian seacoast. SOUTHERN CHRONICLES is planned to be completed in December 2023.

  • PANOPTICON by George Sikharulidze, producer: EAVE graduate Vladimer Katcharava, co-producer: EAVE graduate Anamaria Antoci is shooting. The Georgian/French/Romanian/Italian co-production explores teenage sexuality and Christian fundamentalism in post-Soviet Georgia. In 2018, well after the dissolution of Soviet atheism, Georgia is a country of growing Orthodox Christianity. Rooted in this fundamentalism are emerging fascist organisations, which perpetuate conservative values on nationalism, religion and sexuality. One such battle is against sex clubs and brothels run by Muslim immigrants that offer a solution for Georgian youth in a country where premarital sex is a religious taboo for girls, but a cultural mandate for boys. “The story told in Panopticon is important for Georgian society, but also unfortunately for the majority of countries. In many places, nationalism, Nazism, fascism, religious intolerance have re-emerged, and this has the greatest impact on teenagers, because it is at this age that a person/personality is formed. The cheerful form that George found by observing the life of the little boy (the main character) contains an important message for young people, who may see parallels and think about some difficult issues”, producer Vladimer Katcharava said. PANOPTICON was supported by the Georgian National Film Center. The project participated in Arras Days (2017), Cinemed Pitching Sessions (2018), Cinéfondation-Cannes (2018-2019), Torino Script Lab (2019) and Torino Film Lab (2020). The film is produced by Vladimer Katcharava through Georgian 20 Steps and co-produced by Olivier Chantriaux through FILM02 (France), Anamaria Antoci through Tangaj Production (Romania) and Luca Cabriolu through More Rosse Production (Italy). Vladimer Chikhradze is line producer.

  • CAPTURING SAMI by Adrian Voicu, producers: EAVE graduates Marcian Lazar and Katya Trichkova is in post-production.

  • KOTLINA by Danis Tanovic and Aida Begic, producers: EAVE graduates Amra Baksic Camo and Adis Djapo is in post-production. The story of the five-episode crime drama: After a body of an unknown man is discovered in the garden of the National Museum in Sarajevo, chief inspector Edib Pasic and his young colleague Mido Zec are called upon to the crime scene. It seems to be one more insignificant case of no interest to the media, but a journalist from the Sloboda online magazine, Ajla Pasic, happens to be at the crime scene with a camera. On the same day, Edib’s war comrade Senci returns from prison. The disappearance of the corpse from the morgue and the hidden motives of the Museum’s employees lead Edib, Mido, Ajla and Senci into a web of corruption, pressure, personal failures, poverty, hopelessness and international crime. KOTLINA is produced by Amra Baksic Camo and Adis Djapo of SCCA/pro.ba together with Sedin Kahriman through BH Content Lab, BH Telecom’s platform for production of high-quality television. This is the first TV series produced by BH Telecom. The premiere of the series is planned for September 2022 on BH Telecom’s Moja TV.

  • BLACK VELVET by Liene Linde, producer: EAVE graduate Ieva Norveliene is in post-production. This Latvian/Lithuanian co-production is a partly autobiographical dramedy about a 30 year old woman Marta, a film director. Marta's life in a way embodies the struggles of the millennial generation: working and burning out in creative industries and navigating through various situations, both comical and deeply serious. The film is produced by Guntis Trekteris through Latvia’s Ego Media in co-production with Ieva Norveliene through Lithuania’s Tremora. The project was funded by the National Film Centre of Latvia and the Lithuanian Film Centre with a minority co-production grant. Other financing consists of pre-sales to local broadcasters and streamers. The film's release is planned for the autumn of 2023.

Kristina Trapp, EAVE: “In addition to our existing strong partnerships in several Asian countries and regions, we are thrilled to start this privileged partnership with TAICCA for TIES THAT BIND.”

Sabrina Baracetti, Far East Film Festival: “The Far East Film Festival was born with the aim to create a bridge between East and West. TTB is the place where this bridge finds its realisation. After having been distanced in the past two years, we feel the need to create a place where stories intertwine. We are confident that Taipei is our new beginning!"

Paolo Vidali, Friuli Venezia Giulia Audiovisual Fund: ”TTB has grown steadily over its 12+ year life. Having such a prestigious organisation on board now as TAICCA will give a further boost to a project that unites and will unite European and Asian cinema.”

What is TTB?

TIES THAT BIND is the leading training programme for European-Asian co-production. The participants will work with top-notch industry professionals from both continents. The sessions will focus on script development, co-production between Asia and Europe, public and private financing in the two regions, pitching, marketing and distribution.

Mai Nguyen (DE/VN), Scarlet Visions & CineHanoi, Ties That Bind 2021

“It was great to have inter-continental dialogue between Asia and Europe at TIES THAT BIND. It helped to question preconceptions on both sides and understand each other's realities better. As an Asian participant, it's great to be able to have the opportunity to connect not just with European producers but also with producers from other Asian countries. I very much feel that I will be keeping in touch with a lot of my cohort for the years to come.”

Deadline extension: EAVE Producers Workshop 2023 - apply by September 5, 2022

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 (fiction, documentary and TV series), who are already working in the film and television industries who wish to expand their operation internationally 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. The other half come to EAVE in order to focus on developing their companies or careers. 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.

The interviews with a pre-selection of candidates will take place in autumn 2022 and the selection will be announced in December 2022. The 3 workshops take place in March 3-10, 2023 in Luxembourg (LU), June 11-18, 2023 in Alpbach (AT), and October 2023 in the Netherlands.

HORIA by Ana-Maria Comănescu is shooting

  • LA SALLE DES PAS PERDUS by Thibaut Wohlfahrt and Roda Fawaz, producer: EAVE graduate Jean-Yves Roubin is shooting. The film follows seven stories, seven people in search of identity, seven destinies which overlap in a court of law over the course of one day. It’s a tale set apart by its unity of time and place, and one major artistic constraint: the need to link 20 sequence shots together which will then bring the story to life. LA SALLE DES PAS PERDUS is produced by Cassandre Warnauts and Jean-Yves Roubin on behalf of Frakas Productions. Support comes from the Wallonia Brussels Federation Film and Audiovisual Centre, RTBF, Proximus, VOO, BeTV and Shelter Prod.

  • UNE NUIT by Alex Lutz, producer: EAVE graduate and group leader Didar Domehri, co-producer: EAVE graduate Jacques-Henri Bronckart is shooting. The script begins in a crowded underground train station. Following a jostle, a man and a woman argue, under the amused gaze of the other passengers. Their oratorical joust is loud and charming. A few moments later, in the corridors of a station, the two strangers awkwardly make love in a photo booth. Back on the surface, they are about to separate... Well, goodbye, anyway... We're not going to spend the night saying goodbye! ... But why not? Produced by Didar Domehri for Maneki Films, the film is co-produced by Belgian outfit Versus Production (Jacques-Henri Bronckart). Karin Viard and Alex Lutz are also associate producers. Pre-bought by Canal+, Ciné+ and C8, the feature also benefits from the support of the CNC, Procirep and Angoa, the Belgian Federal Government's Tax Shelter and Inver Tax Shelter, as well as Sofica Cofinova, SG Image and Indéfilms.

  • HORIA by Ana-Maria Comanescu, producer: EAVE graduate and Romanian National Coordinator Ada Solomon is shooting. The screenplay, written by Comănescu, follows the titular Horia, a cautious teenager living in a Romanian village, who is pining for his crush who lives on the other side of the country. After a fight with his father, Horia leaves home on his dad’s motorbike and, soon after, meets street-smart 13-year-old Stela, who is running away from her family. She may be younger than Horia, but she is definitely more adept at living in the moment and adapting to circumstance. And soon, their trip will turn into a full-on adventure that will put their bond to the test. The project is being produced by EAVE participant Carla Fotea and EAVE graduate and Romanian National Coordinator Ada Solomon through microFILM (Romania), and co-produced by Rossitsa Valkanova through Klas Film (Bulgaria) and Nikolina Zecevic-Vucetic through Biberche Productions (Serbia). The Romanian National Film Center as well as the Bulgarian and Serbian National Film Centers supported the project.

EAVE project FIUME O MORTE! is in post-production

  • EAVE project FIUME O MORTE! by Igor Bezinovic, producers: EAVE graduates Tibor Keser and Vanja Jambrovic, co-producer: EAVE graduate Marina Gumzi is in post-production. Named after the protofascist political slogan, Fiume o morte! The docu-fiction hybrid aims to reconstruct the events during Gabriele D’Annunzio’s rule over Fiume (now Rijeka in Croatia), which lasted from 1919-1920. While the historical facts and D’Annunzio’s worldview are widely known and well publicised, Bezinovic’s film concentrates on the contrasts between the strict, corporativist egime and some of the avant-garde, libertine and anarchistic ideas it proclaimed. A Rijeka native, Bezinović wanted to explore and rediscover the lesser-known parts of the city’s history from over a century ago. FIUME O MORTE! Is being produced by EAVE graduates Tibor Keser and Vanja Jambrovic for Restart (Croatia). The co-producers are Erica Berbiani and Lucia Candelpergher for Videomante (Italy) as well as EAVE graduate Marina Gumzi for Nosorogi (Slovenia). The development and production were financially supported by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre, the Slovenian Film Centre, the City of Zagreb, the City of Rijeka, the Friuli Venezia Giulia Film Fund, the Friuli Venezia Giulia Film Commission, Eurimages, Creative Europe – MEDIA Single Project Development, the Italian Ministry of Culture, PROCIREP/ANGOA, RE-ACT and the Sarajevo Film Festival (CineLink Co-production Market). Viba Film Studio provided the technical services.

  • LUNATIC by Igor Sterk, co-producer: EAVE graduate Frenk Celarc is in post-production. The film, written and directed by his son, renowned Slovenian filmmaker Igor Sterk is the first of its kind in the context of national cinema, given that it is a work of autofiction centred around an ordinary Slovenian family led by an extraordinary father. Lunatic (named after Jure Sterk’s boat) is an intimate portrait of Jure and his family, told from the unique, personal and subjective perspective of his son. It is labelled as a humorous, yet relentless, family drama. Lunatic is a demanding production, given that the story spans an extended period, from the early 1970s to the year 2008. The photography process lasted almost ten months, having begun last September, since it features all of the seasons and various locations, and involved a large crew. The main shooting location was the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana, with the coastal towns of Koper, Piran and Pula (in Croatia) serving as other locations. Lunatic is a Slovenian-Croatian co-production between companies A.A.C. Productions, Gustav Film, RTV Slovenia and Croatian company Svenk. Germany’s Mogador Film was involved in the development process. Financial support for the feature came from the Slovenian Film Centre (SFC) and the Croatian Audiovisual Centre (HAVC), while Ljubljana-based studio Viba Film provided technical support.

The story unfolds in the Lääne County at the beginning of the 20th century, where the owner of the Lipuvere farm decides to marry his daughters off to wealthy suitors from the Mulgi County. However, the hearts of the girls already belong to local boys, with whom a plan is forged to get rid of the troublesome grooms.

  • ALL MEN BECOME BROTHERS by Robert Kirchhoff, producer: EAVE graduate Jiri Konecny is in post-production. The figure of the Slovak politician Alexander Dubcek (1921-1992) is followed throughout the 20th century in situational circumstances revealing the internal conflicts of the personality of the politician, as well as of the society. According to the director and producer Robert Kirchhoff, the filming and organisation of the film were extremely demanding. They concerned an extensive collection of material including work with archival sources and protagonists from different parts of the world, where Dubcek left his mark. It also involved hundreds of hours of material in the range of 60 terabytes. The production took place from 2018 to 2021 on locations in Kyrgyzstan, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Turkey and Slovakia. Personalities of domestic and foreign politics and culture, such as Romano Prodi, Umberto Eco, Pavel Kohout, Karel Vachek, Jáchym Topol, Petr Pithart, Eugen Gindl, and many others will appear in the film. The creative documentary is produced by Kirchhoff´s atelier.doc and co-produced by the Radio and Television Slovakia, endorfilm and the Czech Television. Support comes from the Slovak Audiovisual Fund, the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic, Creative Europe and the Czech Film Fund.

Opportunity for 15 Producers to participate in the second Creative Producer Indaba

Submissions have opened for the second Creative Producer Indaba, the professional development programme offered by the Realness Institute, in partnership with EAVE, International Film Festival Rotterdam’s IFFR Pro, and the Marrakech International Film Festival’s Atlas Workshops.

 The Creative Producer Indaba (CPI) offers 15 Producers an opportunity to further develop their producer-related leadership and entrepreneurial proficiencies and build on their creative skills.

 "Strong creative producers with connections to international financing serve as engines that can spur local media markets to grow, adapt, and thrive. Our ultimate aim is to strengthen the pool of capable producers on the continent that can help drive the growth of our respective local markets and to equip these producers with the skills, community, and resources they need to develop and finance our stories," says Mehret Mandefro, Director of Development and Partnership, Realness Institute.

 The programme comprises plenary sessions and group work, unpacking successful case studies, and having access to individual meetings with mentors and guest experts. As this is a producer-facing development programme, the focus will be on project development and planning, financing, legal, PR and marketing, advocacy and lobbying, organisational development, network management, and leadership. 

 Kristina Trapp, CEO at EAVE says, “Knowledge sharing leads to progress and EAVE is a community committed to sharing experience and expertise in order to sustain and transform the business in a collaborative effort. EAVE is proud to be a partner of Creative Producer Indaba for the second year to help foster a community of strong producers and industry leaders in Africa and build bridges on the continent as well as internationally.”

 The programme is anchored by two workshops. Workshop 1 has online sessions from 9 – 12 November 2022 followed by in-person sessions at Atlas Workshops from 14-17 November 2022 during Marrakech International Film Festival. Workshop 2 has in-person sessions at the International Film Festival Rotterdam from 26 January to 2 February 2023.

We are very proud and excited to be part of Indaba again, a programme that has proven to be pivotal in producers’ careers," says Inke van Loocke, Head of IFFR Pro. "It not only brings their skills to the next level, but it consolidates their creative approach to projects and running a company in a sustainable way. One of the best parts of Indaba is the bridges that are built, nurturing not only individual careers but the industry as a whole. We look forward to the creative exchange and exploring all the opportunities and challenges that will arise during the workshop together with the participants, experts, and partners."

 “Highlights worth mentioning from the 2020 edition were industry insights from Christopher Mack, Director of Grow Creative at Netflix, Makhosazana Khanyile from the National Film and Video Foundation in South Africa, ex-Director of Sundance, Tabitha Jackson, and Vanja Kaludjercic, Festival Director at International Film Festival Rotterdam,” says Elias Ribeiro, Head of Studies and Executive Director of the Realness Institute.

 The selected participants will be mentored by Group Leaders, EAVE graduates Mehret Mandefro and Diana Elbaum, Story Expert, EAVE graduate Mmabatho Kau, plus a host of guest speakers, all in leading roles in our industry. 

The call for submissions goes out to Producers (with and without projects) from Africa; producers from outside the continent with an interest in co-producing with Africa and film professionals from other disciplines such as funding bodies, international sales, distribution, broadcasters, and development executives with a stake in the African marketplace. Through a partnership with Brazilian foundation, Projeto Paradiso, one place is guaranteed for a Brazilian producer with a link to an African project.

There are relevant criteria for submissions and costs to cover to participate, like the flight to Rotterdam. All details can be found on the Realness Institute website; https://www.realness.institute/creative-producer-indaba.

Importantly, applicants are required to have produced at least one feature fiction, a series, or documentary film; or a minimum of two short films as a lead producer or co-producer (executive producer, associate, or line producer does not qualify). Film professionals must have a minimum of two years of professional experience. 

The deadline for submissions is 22 August 2022 at 17:00 Central African time. 

The Creative Producers Indaba is made possible through the support of Documentary Africa, International Emerging Film Talent Association (IEFTA), Institut Français d'Afrique du Sud, the Brazilian foundation Projeto Paradiso, and The Storyboard Collective in partnership with European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs (EAVE), International Film Festival Rotterdam Pro (IFFR Pro) and Marrakech International Film Festival (Atlas Workshops).

Paolo Vidali, Friuli Venezia Giulia Audiovisual Fund: ”TTB has grown steadily over its 12+ year life. Having such a prestigious organisation on board now as TAICCA will give a further boost to a project that unites and will unite European and Asian cinema.”

Mai Nguyen (DE/VN), Scarlet Visions & CineHanoi, Ties That Bind 2021

As an Asian participant, it's great to be able to have the opportunity to connect not just with European producers but also with producers from other Asian countries. I very much feel that I will be keeping in touch with a lot of my cohort for the years to come.”

Overall, Green Film Lab includes a number of intensive 3-day workshops, held in English, that take place along the year in different European countries and regions, in collaboration with various film institutions and funds, proposing a comparable structure.

Green Film Lab targets

  • European production teams developing a fiction or documentary feature film - at an advanced stage of development - who are willing to make their shooting more sustainable
  • film production professionals eager to hone their skills on how to work on environmentally friendly audiovisual productions
  • green managers interested in learning how to apply their expertise to film sets.

We especially welcome applications from teams who got support from the Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies and/or teams who will shoot in Catalunya.

The applications to participate can be submitted until 1st September, here.

The participation is free of charge, however, the attendees must cover their travel and accommodation costs.

GREEN FILM LAB aims at a more sustainable audiovisual industry and it is truly committed to changing mindset and habits regarding environmental issues in the field.

Each workshop is open to 24 participants selected to work in groups under the guidance of green manager tutors with wide experience in film industry, on feature film projects almost ready to begin filming.

Through a practical, project-based and hands-on approach, the participants will learn how to apply the current best practices in terms of energy saving, transport, accommodation, catering, set decoration, waste management, recycling and communication.

The training is based on the Green Film Rating System and its two main features: the sustainability plan and the certification process for audiovisual projects.

Green Film Lab Head of Studies is the Italian producer and TFL alumnus Giovanni Pompili that works with Louise Marie Smith (UK), founder and managing director of Neptune Environmental Solutions and with Morgane Baudin (France), producer, consultant and trainer on sustainability for film & TV.

The movie is based on the real life of Otto Herman (1835-1914), a prominent Hungarian nature scientist recognised as a pioneer of Hungarian natural history research, who slowly lost his sense of hearing. Seeking a path from solitude to acknowledgement, he ultimately becomes part of nature and comes to terms with his own disability. We follow his life from his thirties to his mid-fifties, as well as the important bonds he develops with two women. The film’s artistic approach has been described by the team as “based on silent observation, with nature-documentary elements and shot in original habitats”.

ANGEL’S TRUMPETS by Ildiko Enyedi is in shooting

  •  LE SYNDROME DES AMOURS PASSÉES by Ann Sirot and Raphaël Balboni, producer: EAVE graduate Julie Esparbes is shooting. The film follows the trajectory of Rémy and Sandra who can’t have children on account of a strange illness: "Past Lovers Syndrome". There is only one way to recover from it: they must spend one last night with each of their exes. Sirot and Balboni are clearly looking to explore the notion of the couple, but they’re also investigating family, what it is that unites us, what makes us a legitimate couple, what role does parenthood or faithfulness play when it comes to falling in love?

http://helicotronc.com

 

  • ANGEL’S TRUMPETS by Ildiko Enyedi, co-producer: EAVE graduate Jonas Dornbach is shooting. The film is the pilot episode of the TV series about Human Trafficking of the same name.

It is produced by Ákos Erdös through Paprika Studios, and coproduced by Komplizen Film, Pyramide Productions, Moliwood Films.

  • L’AMOUR ET LES FORÊTS by Interchange graduate Valérie Donzelli is in post-production. Adapted by Valérie Donzelli and Audrey Diwan based upon Éric Reinhardt’s novel of the same name, the story of L’AMOUR ET LES FORÊTS revolves around Blanche. When she first crossed paths with Greg, she thought she’d found the one she’d been looking for. They quickly formed an attachment, but their relationship is marred by Greg’s quick temper. Blanche ignores her niggling doubts and distances herself from her family and twin sister, convinced that she’s reinventing herself. And little by little, she finds herself caught in the trap of a possessive and dangerous man. A man she’s too ashamed and frightened to report. Because there are only two possible exit routes from control: either the victim breaks free or they fall apart… The film is produced by Édouard Weil and Alice Girard on behalf of Rectangle Productions, in co-production with Les Films de Françoise, and has been pre-purchased by Canal+.

Obituary Vjosa Berisha

The EAVE family mourns the recent passing of Kosovar director/producer and EAVE graduate Vjosa Berisha, an extraordinary and inspiring woman who was well known in the European film industry.

Vjosa Berisha was co-owner and chief executive of B2 – PR & Media Solutions, a film and television production and public relations company established in Kosovo in 2003, with offices in Kosovo and Albania.

Vjosa Berisha was the founder of PriFilmFest festival, whose 14th edition is set to take place on July 26-30. Thanks to her initiative, and keeping its main motto, “Friendship. Forever.”, and as a gesture of support and solidarity, the Prishtina International Film Festival (PriFest) will host the Odesa International Film Festival (OIFF) in Kosovo this year. 

Vjosa Berisha has worked on numerous PR and media projects and has led many successful commercial and political communication and awareness campaigns for various clients, including banks, airlines, hydropower and energy, IT, cultural institutions, embassies, government, media, political parties and other institutions in Kosovo and Albania.

One of the notable projects she led was the management and implementation of the campaigns during the process leading to Kosovo’s Declaration of Independence in 2008 which included a series of awareness campaigns. The campaigns were supported by USAID through its implementing partners, and by the Government of Kosovo.

In 2011 she participated in the Hope Fellowship programme for Democracy and Diplomacy, sponsored by USAID which included a six-week study tour to Washington DC in April and May 2011. During this trip she gave a public lecture on public diplomacy – with the theme “Nation Branding and Image of Kosovo”, at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies and in the Public Diplomacy Council in Washington DC.

Vjosa Berisha was also a member of the European Film Academy.
Her filmography as a producer and executive producer includes: a series of 10 television programmes for young people entitled "Respect", a series of 6 documentaries produced for UNICEF Kosovo, the organisation of the International Children's Day of Broadcasting (ICDB) on behalf of UNICEF, a television debate on the drafting of the Kosovar Constitution for Kosovar television.

With her incredible energy, she has inspired many, especially young women.

Our sincere condolences go out to Vjosa's family and friends.

Vjosa, we will miss you!

Call for applications: EAVE Producers Workshop 2023 - deadline August 29, 2022

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 (fiction, documentary and TV series), who are already working in the film and television industries who wish to expand their operation internationally 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. The other half come to EAVE in order to focus on developing their companies or careers. 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 2022 and the selection will be announced in December 2022. The 3 workshops take place in March 3-10, 2023 in Luxembourg (LU), June 11-18, 2023 in Alpbach (AT), and October 2023 in the Netherlands.

  EAVE MARKETING BUDDIES PROGRAMME

The EAVE Marketing Workshop participants are joined every year by selected graduates of the renowned EAVE Producers Workshop, who have trained over one year as specialized marketing professionals.

EAVE is a residential workshop programme with a strong focus on network building. Should local travel restrictions occur, alternative digital solutions will be proposed.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: August 29, 2022

Check out www.eave.org or contact satu@eave.org for more information.

Application form: eave.org/apply/epw-2023

EAVE, CPH:DOX, and IMS are calling for eight teams with documentary projects in development from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine.

We offer a tailor-made programme taking place over three residential workshops with the aim to stimulate and qualify inter-regional co-production and to connect documentary projects to regional and international markets. Participants are tutored by regional and international experts.

The first two workshops will consist of five full days of group work, plenaries, and individual meetings; the third workshop will take place in the framework of CPH:DOX and consists of workshop days, pitching of the projects at CPH:FORUM as well as debrief of the pitching and development of strategies for the teams and projects after the workshop.

Between the workshops, participants will be working on project development with specific tasks and assignments.
