  • MY SOUL STARTLED by Syllas Tzoumerkas, producer: EAVE graduate Maria Drandaki, co-producer: EAVE graduate Nadia Trevisan is in pre-production. In his next feature-length project, Tzoumerkas is weaving a tapestry of interconnected stories in the vein of Arabian Nights. Set against the backdrop of the Dodecanese islands, the film delves into the transformation of the idyllic location under the pressure of mass tourism, uncovering the hidden underbelly of a world that was once vibrant and untainted. The story reflects both a lament for lost purity, and an examination of the islands' complex blend of paganism and Christianity. This dichotomy serves as a fertile ground for exploring mythological themes, intertwining tales of gods and titans with the lives of the characters in a way that offers new perspectives on ancient myths. The film will be shot mostly in Greece, with some scenes filmed in Italy. With development wrapped, Tzoumerkas and the producers are completing the financing, aiming to start production in 2025. MY SOUL STARTLED is a Greek-Italian-French-Austrian-Cypriot co-production being staged by Homemade Films, and co-produced by Nefertiti Film, Sister Productions, Nabis Film Group, Felony Productions and the Onassis Foundation. The project has been supported by the Greek Film Centre, ERT SA, MIC – Direzione Generale Cinema e Audiovisivo, the Nouvelle Aquitaine Regional Film Fund and Creative Europe – MEDIA.

  • MADE IN EU by EAVE graduate Stephan Komandarev, producer: EAVE graduate Katya Trichkova is currently in production. The story follows Iva, a seamstress in a small town, who is forced to hide the fact that she’s ill in order to keep her job, but after the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in town, all the blame for the infection falls on her and she will be demonised by the community. “I don't like to give ready answers, but rather to raise questions with my films. In MADE IN EU we raise questions about the garment (textile) manufacturing that exist today in the EU in small factories far from the lights of the big cities. We also raise questions about the negative and positive sides of globalisation, and about the division between centre and periphery in Europe. We are interested in what is happening at the periphery: the story follows a seamstress who works six days a week for 12 hours and is unfairly accused as a public enemy. The story is set against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it deals primarily with the much more serious pandemic of modern slavery. Everything in the script is based on real stories, because the first COVID-19 outbreaks in Bulgaria happened in such provincial sewing factories”, Stephan Komandarev said. Komandarev is producing together with Katya Trichkova through Argo Films (Bulgaria) in co-production with Eike Goreczka and Christoph Kukula through 42film (Germany) and Pavel Strnad through Negativ (Czech Republic). The film has been supported by the Bulgarian National Film Center, MDM and the Czech Film Fund. The project was developed at MFI (Greece, 2021), Cannes Film Festival’s L’Atelier (2022) and Arras Days (2023), where it won the award for best project. The postproduction will take place in Germany and the Czech Republic, and it will be completed till the end of 2024. The premiere of the film is set for 2025. The producers are currently looking for additional funding from co-production as well as presales from TV broadcasters. The film is currently being shot for 27 days from 18 March 2024 to 1 May 2024 in Dimitrovgrad, Haskovo, Rudozem and Madan (Bulgaria) and also in Leipzig (Germany).

  • GLOBAL PROJECT by Ivo Marques Ferreira, producer: EAVE graduate Donato Rotunno is in production. Made up of a 6x45-minute series and a 100-minute feature, Ferreira’s new effort is “anchored in the political, economic and social reality of the late 1970s and early 1980s, and the illusions and disenchantments of a far left that was glorified in 1959, with the Cuban Revolution and the revolutionary myth of Che Guevara, who shouted, ‘Power to the Imagination!’ on May 1968, and which started to decline after the fall of the Berlin Wall”. In detail, the 1970s saw European left-wing armed movements thriving: ETA in Spain, the IRA in Ireland, the Red Brigades in Italy and the Baader-Meinhof Group in Germany. Portugal would have to deal with a similar phenomenon in the 1980s with the Popular Forces 25 April (FP-25), a far-left organisation defending the achievements of the 1974 Carnation Revolution, which brought 48 years of dictatorship to an end. The organisation gradually lost touch with the people it had aimed to protect, and was dismantled by a massive police operation in 1984. The feature and series condense and fictionalise these events. In the vibrant and decadent city of Lisbon, we follow FP-25 members and the police officers chasing them. Rosa, an actress and single mother; Queiroz, her best friend; and Jaime, a disillusioned young soldier – they all belong to the FP-25. Refusing to accept the death of their ideals, they must soon abandon everything and go undercover. On the other side of the barricade, Marlow, an officer with a troubled personality, faces his first big mission against the organisation. He and Rosa were former lovers, and he becomes obsessed with finding her while fulfilling his duty. Donato Rotunno and Luis Urbano, co-producing for Portuguese outfit O Som e a Furia, about the production: “We’re going to finish filming right after the 50th anniversary of the Carnation Revolution. We’re filming for 80 days, and we’ve already started editing. We first aim to release the feature-film version in the first semester of 2025, and ideally release it in Portugal on 24 April 2025, one day before the 51st anniversary of the Carnation Revolution. In order to fulfil this schedule, we will be showing the film at the EFM in Berlin in 2025, together with our world sales agent, The Match Factory. Then, the six-episode TV series will be premiered on RTP and on RTL in the second half of 2025.

  • APUNTES PARA UNA FICCIÓN CONSENTIDA by Ana Serret Ituarte, producer: EAVE FFF graduate Cristina Zumarraga is in post-production. The film tells the story of Lea Grand, a Swiss woman lost in Madrid, who will have to find her own path to becoming an actress in a country she wasn’t born in. However, she will have some help from an array of different characters whom she crosses paths with: A young actress, her ex, a pianist who does not talk, a neighbour of hers and a nurse specialising in bats. Regardless, she’s looking in the wrong place. “It’s a fiction authorised by actress Isabelle Stoffel, based on her own experiences, where reality and fiction are totally indistinguishable from one another. That’s how a series of notes came about as well as a string of characters that populate her life and accompany her as she struggles to be an actress in a foreign country whose language is so different to her own”, said Ituarte. The film is a Atiende Films and Tandem Films production, its producers are Xesc Cabot, Pep Garrido, Cristina Zumárraga and Pablo E Bossi. It has secured funding from the ICAA, the Community of Madrid and Madrid City Council, and it also boasts the involvement of the Filmin platform. The film was shot in Madrid and Basel.

  • DANIELA FOREVER by Nacho Vigalondo, co-producer: EAVE graduate Benoit Roland is in post-production. According to its producers, the film is Vigalondo's most personal project to date. A dystopia about love, personal dilemmas and dreams that tells the story of how life loses all meaning for Nicolas (played by Henry Golding) with the loss of his girlfriend Daniela (Beatrice Grannò). But one day he is invited to take part in a clinical trial that will allow him to control his dreams and he agrees in the hope of recovery. Now Nicolas can dream of Daniela every night and resume their relationship, more idyllic than ever... even if only in dreams. And at the risk of getting lost in them forever. Daniela Forever (with music by the duo Hidrogenesse) is produced by Nahikari Ipiña and Nacho Vigalondo from Sayaka Producciones, in co-production with Benoit Roland from the Belgian company Wrong Men, Leire Apellaniz from Señor y Señora, Gustavo Ferrada from Mediacrest Entertainment and US company XYZ Films. The film has the participation of Filmin, Movistar Plus+ and Wallimage, as well as financing from the ICAA.

IDA Getting Real Conference

Stronger Together: Collectives and Mobilizing Around the World

Tuesday, April 16, 2024 4:00 PM PDT

Moderator: Pulkit Datta (Tikkun Olam Productions)

Panelists: Mohamed Saïd Ouma (DocA/East Africa Screen Collective), EAVE participant Laura Kloeckner (SAVVY Contemporary/United Screens), EAVE graduate Melissa Adeyemo (Yetu Collective)

Filmmakers perpetually face challenges from fundraising to pairing up with solid partners, managing post-production details and legal requirements, and launching and promoting their final work, not to mention simple job security in a world of contract work. Filmmakers from the Global South and from underrepresented groups also face the colossal task of trying to shift well-worn narratives about their communities, homes, and lives. But we don't have to do this alone. One of the most powerful and simplest strategies to tackling these difficulties involves deliberately coming together to pool resources, share knowledge, and perhaps most importantly, provide intangible encouragement for each other's projects and cheerleading for each other's successes.

In this session, we’ll hear from members of different collectives that were formed in order to move member projects, careers, and companies forward in strategic and coordinated ways. What problems are these collectives trying to address? What methods are they using to do so? What have they been able to accomplish and build? What setbacks have they faced along the way?  Most importantly, how are they setting up models for relationships that when replicated on a larger scale, will help us move towards a more just and distributed future?

Empowering Moroccan female filmmakers: Interview with EAVE graduate Lamia Chraibi on Tamayouz Cinéma Foundation

Since its creation in 1988, EAVE has been actively involved in the global transformation of the European film industry as a key player, promoting cross-border and interdisciplinary collaboration. We empower graduates to become agents of change, shaping their local, regional and national communities like "rings in the water". The EAVE community is committed to sharing its experience and expertise to support and transform business - and society - in a collaborative effort.

New tutors and experts constantly emerge from the pool of past participants, and knowledge spreads globally through community members. We explore this "ripple effect" in a series of interviews where EAVE graduates talk about their inspiring new initiatives, such as training programs, funding initiatives or networking events in their countries, with the aim of making an impact on the industry.

EAVE graduate Lamia Chraibi is one of the five founders of the Tamayouz Cinéma Foundation in Morocco, which aims to give young Moroccan women easier access to the film industry, particularly in the production sectorIt also aims to encourage young female talent, foster exchanges and collaboration in the region, and create equal opportunities and greater visibility for Moroccan filmmakers at home and internationally.

EAVE: Could you give us an overview of the Tamayouz Cinéma Foundation's activities in Morocco and the specific professionals it targets?

Lamia Chraibi: The Tamayouz Cinéma Foundation aims to provide young female talent with the necessary platform to professionalize their production skills, help them move from improvisation to professionalism in independent film production and gain visibility on the national and international scenes.

 

What kind of support do you give to female talent, and how does your initiative contribute to better access to the national and international film industry?

Our initiative provides support for female talent aspiring to enter the film industry. We offer scholarships to young women wishing to enter Morocco's private film school, ESAV. In addition, we support them in the development phase of their first feature film by organizing workshops that accompany them through the development phase of their first feature film. We offer ongoing mentoring to guide them through the process of structuring the project, both in terms of writing and financing.

We are aware of the financial difficulties that often accompany the development of film projects in our part of the world. To remedy this, we want to provide financial assistance to project owners, covering various development expenses.

It's very important to establish networks within the Moroccan film industry and among our participants: through these connections, we facilitate dialogue and awareness-raising on gender issues, creating a supportive community that strengthens talent and gives them better access to opportunities in the national and international film industry.

 

What are the main issues and challenges facing the Moroccan film industry that you hope to address with the program?

First of all, we're tackling the problem of insufficient communication between industry professionals and supervisory bodies. The main objective is to improve coordination and alignment between stakeholders, in order to facilitate operations and growth within the industry. We are also tackling the limited representation of women in the film professions. We strive to break down barriers and create pathways for female talent to enter and thrive in diverse roles within the industry, promoting diversity and inclusion. Our program tackles gender disparities, both on screen and behind the camera. We seek to challenge stereotypes and promote equality between men and women throughout the film production process.

We also try to address the problem of elitist access to the industry by offering opportunities, resources and support to budding filmmakers from diverse backgrounds. By democratizing access and creating pathways for emerging talent, we aim to create a more inclusive and representative film community.

We need to recognize the pervasiveness of the problem of harassment, particularly in male-dominated industries like film. Through education, advocacy and support systems, we are trying to create safer and more respectful working environments, ensuring that all individuals can pursue their passion for filmmaking without fear or intimidation.

Finally, our program aims to address the significant absence of creative producers capable of driving change. By providing training, mentoring and networking opportunities, we aim to give a new generation of producers the skills, knowledge and vision to positively transform Moroccan cinema.

 

How does the Tamayouz Foundation plan to contribute to the long-term sustainability and growth of the Moroccan film industry? Are there any strategic partnerships or collaborations in the pipeline?

We have strategic partnerships with leading academic institutions, notably our collaboration with Mohammed VI Polytechnic University, and we are working closely with the Ministries of Culture and the Moroccan Film Center. Also, by working with Moroccan film schools, ISMAC and ESAV, we ensure that we remain connected to the next generation of talent. We open our doors to young graduates and offer them concrete opportunities in the film world. We are committed to supporting their successful transition into the industry.

Our aim is to collaborate with the Atlas workshops of the Marrakech International Film Festival, a prestigious platform for international film professionals. By joining this festival, we will be offering young Moroccan producers a unique opportunity to showcase their work and prove themselves on the international scene. This is an important first step for them, as it's taking place in their own country.

We would also like to emphasize that during our training courses, we attach great importance to the rigorous selection of speakers. We ensure that they are experienced and recognized professionals in their field, to guarantee that participants benefit from diverse expertise and constant updates on the realities of the film industry.

 

In your experience, what role does mentoring play in nurturing emerging talent, particularly in the context of the Moroccan film industry? Can you share any success stories or notable impacts resulting from the mentoring programs?

We are currently in discussion with internationally recognized Moroccan producers to host young producers for a mentoring program throughout the making of their first feature film. We firmly believe in the importance of personalized support for emerging talent, and this mentorship will offer them a unique opportunity to learn from seasoned experts in the Moroccan film industry, who have proven themselves on a global scale. The exchange of knowledge will encourage innovation and strengthen ties between generations of Moroccan film professionals. Collaborating with a reputable production company with an extensive filmography can bring invaluable credibility to young producers starting out in the field. They will benefit not only from advice and expertise but also from the enhancement of their legitimacy through association with the established track record of the company.

Mentoring plays a crucial role for emerging talent in the Moroccan film industry. Despite formal education, there are practical challenges to navigating the industry, often without accessible guidance. Mentoring goes beyond sharing facts; it's about exchanging experiences, providing advice and creating a safe space to ask questions without judgment. For example, the invaluable support and advice provided by Noreddine Sail was instrumental in the early stages of my career, and the lessons learned from this mentoring still stay with me today.

In its early years, the Tamayouz Cinéma Foundation had the privilege of supporting talented individuals through scholarships. Zineb Ouakrim stood out, her short film winning a prize in the Cinef' program at the Cannes Film Festival. Basma Rkioui successfully completed her studies at the FEMIS summer school and the Filmakademie, marking a milestone in her cinematic career. Houda El Anbri entered the professional arena by securing a position in the dubbing industry.

 

What are your upcoming events and projects? Are there any initiatives on the horizon that you're particularly excited about, or that you think will have a significant impact?

I'm delighted with the launch of the first of three sessions of TAP01 (our first program designed to support our talented young professionals in developing their projects in line with international industry standards), and we're already planning the second edition, taking into account current developments. We look forward to continuing our scholarship program. In addition, we recognize a great need for knowledge in the field of distribution, and are therefore planning to organize a workshop for producers and distributors. We are also looking forward to expanding our team to approach more funding opportunities and to plan the future of Ateliers professionnels Tamayouz with a stronger budget for more action.

Diversity of filmmakers in the Irish screen industry: Interview with EAVE graduates Katie Holly and Evan Horan on X-Pollinator

EAVE has been actively engaging in the overall transformation of the European film industry as a key player, promoting cross-border and cross-disciplinary collaboration since its inception in 1988. We empower graduates to become agents of change and shape their local, regional and national communities, like “rings in the water”. The EAVE community is committed to sharing experience and expertise to sustain and transform the business - and society – in a collaborative effort.

New tutors and experts constantly emerge from the pool of past participants and knowledge spreads globally through the members of the community. We are exploring this ‘ripple effect’ in a series of interviews where EAVE graduates talk about their inspiring new initiatives, such as training programmes, funding initiatives or networking events in their countries, with the scope of having on impact on the industry.

 

In this interview, Katie Holly and Evan Horan of X-Pollinator, both EAVE graduate producers, talk about their inspiring initiative to foster diversity in the Irish screen industry. Gain valuable insights into their mission to promote gender equality and inclusivity while advocating for emerging talent and nurturing cross-disciplinary collaborations.

 

EAVE: What is X-Pollinator and how did you come up with the name for your initiative?

Katie Holly: The idea for X-Pollinator came from the desire to try and make a real change in the diversity of filmmakers in the Irish screen industry.  It was inspired by my own experience doing an initiative called Catalyst (through which I produced my first feature, many moons ago) which the Irish Film Board, as it was known at the time, ran over two weekends, with a view to fully funding three low budget films. 150 aspiring writers, directors and producers spent time together and from that three films were made through the scheme, but at least 7 more came out of it directly from the relationships made at the workshops. I thought if we could do the same for female, non-binary and trans talent we could actually make some change so recruited my colleague Evan Horan who had brilliant experience with festivals and events, and Lara Hickey who was coming from a stellar background producing theatre into film to start X-Pollinator. 

The name was a play on the X-chromosome, and also our desire to have a true cross disciplinary approach, bringing in artists and practitioners across writing, directing and producing, and other practitioners working in film and TV, but also artists from other creative industries such as theatre, comedy, performance, advertising, literature and journalism who have ambitions to create and want to make work for the screen. Lara was instrumental in helping recruit practitioners beyond those already working for the screen.

Evan Horan: Our initiative, which has been running for five years now, provides the space for our participants to meet, develop, network and share ideas, and to help with the cross pollination of future creative teams and projects.

 

Could you share an overview of the programs offered by X-Pollinator and who are the specific professionals they target?

EH: When we set out our goal was to support participants at the more emerging stage of their career, so anyone who hadn’t yet made a feature or similar was eligible to apply.  Over the course of the five years of X-Pollinator, we have managed to run different programmes that each year has a distinct purpose, addressing an identified gap in the Irish screen industry. In 2019, we started our goal of addressing gender diversity with X-Pollinator 2019, a two-weekend event which saw 140 participants, 37 sessions and 63 industry guest speakers inspire collaborations and networking amongst the next wave of female Irish talent.  

After our launch, we were then affected by the pandemic and had to pivot our initiative’s event online. We then followed up with INCUBATOR, a female-driven development initiative that aimed to build on the success of X-Pollinator 2019 to encourage and support collaborations between teams of X-Pollinator participants to create new feature film or TV pitches and treatments. INCUBATOR offered a paid and structured period of development for six projects, providing support in the form of mentorship, script editing and pitch creation, enabling writers to work up treatments with creative and practical input from their director and producer teammates.

In 2021, we launched ELEVATOR, a development programme that identified and supported twenty emerging and diverse female and non-binary writers and directors; it was our goal to actively seek out and support a deeper range of under-represented and emerging voices. Through case studies and panels, ELEVATOR offered participants a comprehensive understanding of the development process, and of the opportunities and careers in writing and directing for the screen, pitching, how to find a producer, and a chance to build a network of collaborators.  

KH: After two years online, X-Pollinator was keen to get back in the room; in 2023, we then ran CREATOR, an immersive residential talent development lab for twelve directors who took part in a week-long residency in Adare, Co. Limerick, working on their own individual projects under the guidance of renowned director Aisling Walsh (MAUDIE, SONG FOR A RAGGY BOY) as our lead Creative Mentor, and featured speakers such as Clio Barnard (ALI & AVA), Sophie Hyde (GOOD LUCK TO YOU, LEO GRANDE), Kate Dolan (YOU ARE NOT MY MOTHER), and Frank Berry (AISHA).

And this year, we felt there was a need to run a large-scale event again, with 140 participants, and X-Pollinator 2024 was held in TU Dublin School of Media earlier this year.  We also try to do an event every year at a film festival, which have always been really well attended and shows the need and importance of such networks, so this aspect is something we hope to be able to offer more of, in terms of more regular networking opportunities.

 

How do you measure the success of your initiatives in promoting gender diversity and equality within the screen industry?

KH: As we have grown and delivered a range of different programmes, we have continued to champion our X-Pollinator participants and their productions and successes. X-Pollinator participation is frequently noted as a marker in participants careers, and we are so thrilled to be a part of their professional journeys. Beyond the intangible impact and positive feedback there have also been multiple tangible outcomes from X-Pollinator with collaborations and productions such as the establishment and launch of Raising Films Ireland; various award winning Screen Ireland funded shorts including SHADOW (Janna Kemperman), LAMB (Sinead O’Loughlin), and WAITING DAY (Grace Dyas); three former participants were named Screen Rising Stars Ireland - Collie McCarthy, Mia Mullarkey and Katie McNeice; three projects from INCUBATOR have since received development support from Screen Ireland - HIT WHERE IT HURTS (Roisin Agnew), DAUGHTERHOOD (Karen Healy and Claire Frances Byrne) and SHAY (Mia Mullarkey), and finally one of CREATOR participants director Claire Frances Byrne will be launching her feature debut READY OR NOT.  We were also thrilled to be nominated for a Big Screen Diversity & Inclusion Award last year which felt like a real recognition of our work.  We continue to see the need and the positive impact we have for the opportunity to contribute to making the Irish screen industry more diverse, inclusive and successful.

 

How have you observed gender diversity and equality evolve within both the Irish and international film industries since the inception of your initiatives?

EH: While as an initiative, X-Pollinator’s position on this point remains positive and hopeful; our viewpoint is to create opportunity and action change in order to address the lack of gender diversity, and not dwell on the general state of the industry. Of course, there has been a lot of advancements in recent years but more needs to be done.

The statistics in relation to female writers, directors and producers remain at a critically low level. In particular, we look to the European Audiovisual Observatory who recently released findings that only 26% of European feature films were directed by women from 2018 – 2022. Justine Triet, this year, became the eighth woman ever to be nominated for the Best Director Academy Award. And we have also seen the Re-Framing the Picture report that recently showed the UK film industry may achieve gender parity by 2085 – only sixty-one years to go!  

In terms of Ireland specifically, there have certainly been improvements in the number of female writers and directors getting funded and produced and studies show that projects helmed by women tend to have more diversity throughout both in front of and behind the camera, so it’s a virtuous circle that helps further change happen. 

When it comes to other equality measures and across crew representation progress is slower, and data is lacking to understand our starting point so we can measure and set meaningful targets for change.  We would also be curious to know more about total funding awards and budget levels broken down by gender, we’d expect there is still quite a disparity there. With costs of production increasing and challenges in the market, it’s more important than ever to ensure that those at the earlier stage in their careers particularly those from more diverse groups can have opportunities to make their first features, and that it’s sustainable.  Shorts and other schemes are great but really market finance beyond local funders will only come after people have made their first feature, Kate Dolan is a brilliant recent example of that, so we hope we can help advocate for first feature funding pathways locally too.  It is clear there is still a crucial need to improve gender balance and diversity in the industry worldwide, and in terms of our work, specifically in Ireland, we remain motivated to keep going and continue this work.

 

Could you elaborate on the process of establishing an Irish branch of Raising Films, a support network for parents and carers in the screen sectors?

KH: The establishment of Raising Films Ireland has most definitely been one of our biggest measures of success across our years of running X-Pollinator.

In 2019, during our inaugural event in 2019, we invited writer/director Hope Dickson Leach (THE LEVELLING) for a Director in Focus panel. Hope is a co-founder of Raising Films, and was interested in helping set up an Irish branch of the organisation. During a coffee break after the panel, Hope was approached by a large number of participants, inspired by her talk and eager to be a part of establishing this new body; emails were exchanged and not too long after, Raising Films Ireland was launched and it’s been hugely active in trying to make the Irish screen industries a more welcoming place to work for those that are carers.

Working towards a more inclusive screen industry is a main goal for X-Pollinator, which is a shared mission for Raising Films Ireland who want to make the screen industry accessible for parents and carers. Over our recent X-Pollinator events, we have had childcare onsite available for our participants as well as an accessibility fund set aside in our budget, in order to address any barriers for our participants and help those who may not have been able to attend otherwise.

 

What upcoming events or projects do you have planned? Are there any initiatives on the horizon that you're particularly excited about?

KH: We just wrapped on X-Pollinator 2024 which took place over one weekend in late February. This marked our return to a large-scale event which saw 140 participants, 23 sessions and 39 industry guest speakers including directors Ella Glendining (IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE?), Aoife McArdle (SEVERANCE), Sofia Exarchou (ANIMAL) and producers Cleona Ní Chrualaoí (AN CAILÍN CIÚIN) and Maria Drandaki of Homemade Films and EAVE Producers Workshop alumni.

We intend to run one major X-Pollinator event every year so we are now in the process of figuring out our 2025 plans. We do see potential in taking our cross-pollination idea further, for instance with our CREATOR Directors Lab, might there be opportunities to expand this into Europe, partnering with other European screen agencies for a bi-lateral event.

EH: We have also managed to secure some funding from our long-standing supporters Coimisiún na Meán to develop our network of over 310 participants, and run smaller events throughout the year to ensure our previous participants remain engaged with X-Pollinator, and to continue to highlight and cheerlead their work.  We plan to do some year-round meet ups, which could be screenings, networking reception, or panels.  We want to keep this networking growing and support our participants as they develop their careers.

I have always been an admirer of the BFI Flare x BAFTA development programme which showcases and supports six LGBTQIA+ filmmakers each year. I have recently joined the Board of GAZE International LGBTQIA+ Film Festival in Dublin, and would love to see a similar programme developed for Irish LGBTQIA+ talent.

This unnamed dividing line determines property prices, unemployment rates and the attitude of police forces; it divides states, parcels out cities and divides neighbourhoods. And it is embodied, perhaps more than anywhere else, in a 5 x 5 metre square of light, circumscribed and highly symbolic.... The boxing ring.

In production

  • CAP FAREWELL by Vanja d’Alcantara, producer: EAVE graduate Isabelle Truc, Denis Vaslin is in production. After exploring the steppes of Central Asia and the cliff landscapes of Japan in these two previous films, the director is now setting up shop in Belgium to follow Toni, a young 24-year-old woman who is released from prison and finds herself having to return home to live with her mother Betty, with whom relations are strained. Determined to reconnect with her daughter Anna, whom Betty has raised in her absence, Toni gets a job in her uncle’s brasserie nearby the port. But she soon finds herself mired once again in the smuggling shenanigans of her childhood sweetheart Max, who’s the reason she first went to prison, and who’s also Anna’s father. Pulled in all directions, Toni must fight to break free from this toxic environment and to take up her place as a mother and free woman. The film is produced by Isabelle Truc on behalf of Iota Production, who’ll soon be releasing Elodie Lélu’s first fiction feature RÉTRO THERAPY. CAP FAREWELL is co-produced by Canadian producers Robert Lacerte and Marc Daigle of ACPAV and by Denis Vaslin of Volya Films in the Netherlands. It enjoys support from the Wallonia-Brussels Federation Film and Audiovisual Centre, Wallimage, Magellan Films, UMedia, RTBF, BeTV, Proximus, SODEC, Téléfilm Canada, Canadian distributor Maison 4:3, the Netherlands Film Fund. The movie will be shot between 26 February and 5 April between Belgium and the Netherlands.

In post-production

  • THE SHADOW by Jaak Kilmi, producer: EAVE+ graduate Kristian Taska is in post-production. The story, penned by Indrek Hargla, zooms in on Juhan Liiv, a struggling poet and unlikely detective in Estonia, the “Wild West” of the Tsar's crumbling empire in the 1890s. Juhan is fighting crime and his own inner demons. He is considered mad and pronounced crazy. But by standing for justice and truth, at the end of the day, he comes out the sanest of them all. In the movie, he has to solve several gruesome murder cases behind which is – the witnesses say – the devil itself. THE SHADOW is being produced by Kristian Taska for Taska Film (Estonia), Tanel Tatter and Veiko Esken for Apollo Film Productions (Estonia), and Armin Karu for HansaFilm (Estonia). Tuuli Roosma, of Reede (Estonia), is co-producing. It has received backing from the Tartu Film Fund and was awarded development support from the Estonian Film Institute.

  • REDOUBT by John Skoog, producer: EAVE participant Caroline Drab, co-producers: EAVE graduates Kaarle Aho, Leontine Petit, Dan Wechsler, is in post-production. The picture draws inspiration from Karl-Göran Persson, a real-life farmer known as a good Samaritan on the verge of madness, who lived near the helmer’s home town of Kvidinge during World War II. After receiving a warning by the Swedish government of potential strikes by the Soviet army, he sets off to turn his house into a fortified shelter for fellow villagers. The story, however, will unfold during the second half of the 20th century, “post-World War II, but before the internet became something for everyone and before the fall of the Berlin Wall”. The movie was shot in two parts, with the first taking place in summer and the second set ten years later, in winter. REDOUBT is being produced by Erik Hemmendorff and Caroline Drab for Ruben Östlund’s banner Plattform Produktion (Sweden), in co-production with Film i Skåne (Sweden), Film i Väst (Sweden), SVT (Sweden), BCD Film (Sweden), Bufo (Finland), Lemming Film (Netherlands), No-Mad Films (Italy) and Paloma Production (Denmark), and in association with Bord Cadre Films (Switzerland) and Sovereign Films (UK).

  • BLUE BLOOD by Juris Kursietis, producers: EAVE graduates Alise Gelze, Evelin Penttilä and Vicky Miha is on post-production. When world-renowned German organist Anna uncovers her Latvian husband's involvement in a sprawling corruption scandal, her meticulously curated life alongside their prosperous family starts to unravel. The deepening contrast in their perspectives on corruption, shaped by their Western and Eastern backgrounds, intensifies, jeopardising the core of Anna and Andris' relationship. Will she be able to live with this new image of her husband? BLUE BLOOD is produced by Alise Gelze of Latvian White Picture and coproduced by Evelin Penttila of Estonian Stellar Film and Vicky Miha of Greek asterisk. The project is co-financed by Creative Europe MEDIA, the National Film Centre of Latvia, the State Culture Fund of Latvia, the Estonian Film Institute, the Cultural Endowment of Estonia and the Greek Film Centre.

  • YOUTH ETERNAL by Armands Zacs, producer: EAVE graduate Alise Gelze is in post-production. It is summer and a group of millennials is at a music festival, relishing their seemingly carefree lives, while their close friends, Ieva and Alex, are embarking on parenthood. Kitija is suffering from depression and fails to find support as the friends start to become more alienated from each other. Anna is trying to take care of her mental health by quitting weed, which turns out to be a challenge to her relationship with Kaspars, who grows it in their house. Unable to influence Martin's self-destructive lifestyle, Dainis starts to document it on video, becoming a participant and a creator of a reality show of his own. The friends start a wild journey into the new reality of becoming responsible for themselves and those around them. The project is produced by Alise Ģelze through Latvian White Picture and financed by the National Film Centre of Latvia and European REACT-EU Funding as part of the Union’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic. YOUTH ETERNAL was shot by Estonian cinematographer Erik Pollumaa mostly in Riga and in the suburbs of Riga in the summer of 2023, and it has a Greek editor, Yorgos Zafeiris.

PUENTES: Extended Deadline for Applications

Applications for PUENTES, EAVE’s training programme for developing Latin-American-European co-productions is now extended until February 26th!

What ties together successful films such as REINAS, THE FISHBOWL, EL PARAISO, BLANQUITA, JESUS LOPEZ, KILLING THE DEAD, CLARA SOLA or LA CIVIL? All these films were developed at PUENTES in recent years. Apply today and join the network of EAVE producers!

Approaching the industry from a producer's perspective, PUENTES focuses on evaluating artistic potential, formulating marketing and distribution strategies, guiding through the development process and identifying market and financing opportunities in both Latin America and Europe.

The core experts include PUENTES Head of Studies Fernanda del Nido (Setembro Cine – AR/ES), known for her prestigious track record of co-productions involving Europe and Latin America (UNA MUJER FANTASTICA, LA BODA DE ROSA, NERUDA, PEQUEÑA FLOR, BLONDI, etc.), group leader and EAVE graduate Sophie Erbs (Gaijin – FR, Producer of LOS PERROS, COSTA BRAVA, LEBANON, MILLA, THE HARVESTERS, THE LOAD, etc.), script consultant Jacques Akchoti (FR), and Agustina Chiarino (Bocacha Films – UY, Producer of THE HEIRESSES, GIANT, SO MUCH WATER, EL 5, THE WAVES, I WOKE UP WITH A DREAM, 3, MONOS, etc.). They will be joined by various guest experts from both Europe and Latin America.

WHO SHOULD APPLY?

The workshop is targeted to film professionals from Latin America and Europe who wish to strengthen connections between the two regions.

The selected cohort consists of 10 producers focused on project development (fiction films only), along with 4-5 European film professionals with a focus on career development (not bringing a project), including sales agents, financiers, distributors, festival programmers, co-production market representatives, and European producers.

Latin American and European Film producers focusing on project development:

  • Experienced feature film producers with a strong interest with working with Europe and Latin America. The project must be able to demonstrate a clear involvement with Latin America, and vice versa.

European Film Professionals focusing on career development:

  • EU Citizens or residents that are sales agents, distributors, festival and market representatives, financiers, or European producers focusing on career development who wish to deepen their knowledge on Latin-American co-productions and market.

TIMELINE

Applications are open until February 26th, and the selection will be announced by end of April 2024.

PUENTES takes place in the course of two weeks of the year. The first workshop of the 2024 edition will take place in Italy from July 15 – 21, 2024 in partnership with FVG Audiovisual Fund and MiC (Ministero dei Beni Ambientali e Culturali).

The second workshop will be held in Uruguay late November/early December (TBC), in partnership with Bocacha Films and supported by IBERMEDIA. Thanks to a special partnership, the PUENTES participants will attend VENTANA SUR after workshop 2, in order to strengthen their ties between both continents through networking in the most important market for audiovisual content in Latin America.

TESTIMONIALS

“Through this workshop, I gained insights into both my limitations and my untapped potential. Moreover, I had the pleasure of connecting with colleagues from across the globe, and I'm eagerly anticipating the prospect of collaborating with them on exciting new co-productions.”

Claudio Esposito, The Piranesi Experience, IT (PUENTES Participant 2023)

“PUENTES changed the way I approached film production. It creates a web of knowledge and contention on which one can rely on.”

Leandro Listorti, Maravillacine, AR (PUENTES Participant 2023)

European Equity & Inclusion Pathways Seminar

EAVE is an ambassador of the EFM’s Equity and Inclusion Pathways seminar, funded by Creative Europe MEDIA and taking place yearly at the European Film Market 2023, 2024 and 2025. The Equity & Inclusion Pathways Seminar is an industry-wide consultation forum that brings together European decision-makers, advocacy groups, stakeholders and change-makers with the aim of shifting the needle regarding equity, inclusion and accessibility in terms of policymaking, strategy, measures and actions.

The change and advances that this Seminar aims to bring about for the European film industry are resolutely structural and involves not only integrating marginalised groups into a European film sector that is free of biases, barriers and exclusions but also valuing the hitherto unrealised potential of the contributions of marginalised film professionals to the industry as well as redistributing resources and decision-making power more equitably.

Tuesday, February 20th, 9.00-13:45 (closed and by invitation only)

BOTH OF YOUR MOTHERS by Giedre Zickyte is in post-production

In production

  • NINO DANS LA NUIT by Laurent Micheli, producer: EAVE graduate Benoit Roland is in production. In the adaptation of Simon and Capucine Johannin’s much remarked-upon novel, Micheli is exploring the turmoil of modern-day youth and their search for meaning in a daily life marked by precariousness. The story sees 20-year-old Nino Paradis successfully escaping an evening gone wrong, but after a failed attempt to join the Foreign Legion, he finds himself shambolically back at square one. Nino meets up with Lale, the woman who sets his heart ablaze, together with Malik and Charlie, his two partners in crime. From badly paid, rubbish odd jobs to nights full of drugs corresponding to all letters of the alphabet, Nino snatches a place for himself in a world which doesn’t seem obliging. But at what cost?

  • BALTIC UXO by Alexander Belinski and Agne Dovydaityte, producer: EAVE graduate and National Coordinator for Lithuania Dagne Vildziunaite, co-produced by EAVE graduates Elisa Pirir and Julia Cöllen is currently in production. The documentary is a brooding and meditative cinematic journey about the effects that the dumping of 1.6 million tons of unexploded military munition (UXO) into the Baltic and Northern Seas after WW2 has on nature and people around the Baltic. “The feeling we hope to convey to the viewer can be described by a simple life situation that many people have experienced: you are swimming in unfamiliar waters or maybe just a dark pond, and you have this uncomfortable feeling as if someone is about to grab your leg. It's so real that you might even start to feel something physically. This feeling of tension is born out of the innate fear of the unknown, primal instinct and one's imagination filling the gaps of the uncharted”, directors Agne Dovydaite and Alexander Belinski say. BALTIC UXO is produced by Lithuanian Just a Moment in co-production with Fünferfilm (Germany) and Staer (Norway). Dagne Vildziunaite and Karsten Krause are the producers. The project received financial support from the Lithuanian Film Centre, from Tax Incentive Lithuania and from MOIN Film Fund Hamburg.

  • WHEN THE LIGHT BREAKS by Runar Runarsson, co-producer: EAVE graduate Raymond van der Kaaij is also in post-production.

The film, whose screenplay was penned by the director, tells of a journey, a rite of passage for Dani, who travels to Utrecht with his family to watch a sporting event. But before going back to Barcelona, he has a panic attack and makes the decision to stay in the Netherlands. Unable to give any rational explanation to his loved ones, he severs all contact with his past. From that moment on, he will have to survive, with no money, friends or place to call home, and with no ability to speak the local language, until he is finally able to find himself. MUY LEJOS (ZO VER WEG) is a Spanish-Dutch co-production staged by Zabriskie Films and Revolver Amsterdam. It has received support from the Creative Europe – MEDIA programme, the ICEC (Catalan Institute of Cultural Industries), the ICAA (Institute of Film Arts and Sciences) and the Netherlands Film Fund, and it boasts the involvement of TV3 (Televisió de Catalunya) and TVE (Televisión Española).

  • YUGO FLORIDA by Vladimir Tagic, producers: EAVE graduates Marija Stojanovic and Katya Trichkova is in post-production. Serbian filmmaker Vladimir Tagic has now come up with a personal story, written and directed by Tagic himself and inspired by the last seven months before his father’s death. Tagic’s alter-ego Zoran is a chronically fatigued night-shift worker on a reality-TV programme, where he closely follows sleeping participants on around 50 monitors. Zoran’s awkward and almost pointless life, also including a pothead roommate and an unavailable ex-girlfriend, is turned upside-down when his estranged and intolerable father is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Eventually, Zoran finds himself committed to helping him through his final weeks. Producer Marija Stojanovic, from Serbia’s Sense Production, defines YUGO FLORIDA as an arthouse drama that is aimed first and foremost at an audience of arthouse-film lovers. “However, judging by the example of Tagic's work so far, his treatment may be of interest to a wider audience as well,” adds Stojanovic. The co-production between Serbia, Montenegro, Bulgaria and Croatia is being backed by Bulgaria’s Contrast Films, with Katya Trichkova as head of production; Croatia’s Eclectica; and Montenegro’s Adriatic Western. Besides funding bodies from the aforementioned territories, the film was also financed by Creative Europe – MEDIA and Eurimages. It has a total budget of approximately €600,000. Editing is currently happening in Serbia, colour grading and mastering will be executed in Croatia, while the sound post-production will be completed in Bulgaria.

  • BOTH OF YOUR MOTHERS by Giedre Zickyte, producer: EAVE graduate Pille Rünk is in post-production. The film follows the last years of professor Irena Veisaite's life. A distinguished Germanist and theatre scholar, Irena, now in her 90s, is unapologetically modern, inspiring, building bridges between people of different ages, religions and nationalities. Her home is always full of different people and languages. BOTH OF YOUR MOTHERS challenges viewers to reflect on the enduring impact of war, the strength found in love and the potential for positive change even in the darkest moments of history. The narrative weaves together personal stories and historical events, honouring Irena’s legacy as a beacon of hope and a staunch advocate for understanding amidst the chaos of the past and present. “Irena was my friend despite the 52 years age gap. I was inspired by her unbreakable spirit and exceptional humanity. I was trying to understand how she could stay after surviving and witnessing such crimes, where the surroundings constantly reminded her of past horrors. Why did she decide to stay here and, most importantly, to forgive the past? How she, having lived through two horrible realities, Nazi and Stalinist, did not lose her love for people? Unfortunately, and sadly, Irena passed away during the film’s production. This film is going to be my farewell letter for Irena, for the woman who deeply affected me with her empathy, irrepressible intellectual curiosity, commitment to understanding the other and a vigorously open mind”, Giedre Zickyte said. BOTH OF YOUR MOTHERS is produced by Giedre Zickyte through Lithuanian Moonmakers and co-produced by Pille Rünk through Estonian Allfilm and Martichka Bozhilova through Bulgarian Agitprop. The project is supported by the Lithuanian Film Centre, Eurimages, Creative Europe MEDIA, the Estonian Film Institute, the Bulgarian National Film Center, Vilnius Goethe Institute, the Estonian Cultural Endowment and the Lithuanian National Radio and Television (LRT). The film was shot in Lithuania, Estonia and Poland during 2020-2023, and it will be completed and released in 2024.

EAVE project EVERYTHING THAT’S WRONG WITH YOU is shooting

In production

  • FLOOD by Martin Gonda, producer: EAVE graduate and National Coordinator Slovakia Katarina Krnacova is in production. The film delves into the unexplored theme of the displacement of the Rusyn, an East Slavic ethnic group from the Eastern Carpathians in Central Europe, during the construction of the Starina reservoir in the 1980s. Set against this tumultuous backdrop, FLOOD intertwines personal and collective stories, bringing to the forefront the often-overlooked plight of the Rusyn minority in Slovakia. The Starina reservoir's construction, which lasted from 1981-1988, led to the largest displacement in Slovak history. Gonda's personal connection to the region, having spent his childhood summers there, adds a layer of authenticity and depth to the narrative. The film not only recounts the physical destruction of the seven Rusyn villages, but also captures the emotional and cultural impact of this event on the community. The cast combines professional and non-professional actors, and FLOOD is destined to be the first film about Rusyns made in the Rusyn language. The project won the main prize at Febiofest Bratislava Industry Days in 2021. FLOOD is being produced by Silverart (Slovakia), and co-produced by Harine Films (Poland), Cineart TV Prague (Czech Republic) and Y-House (Belgium). The Slovak Audiovisual Fund, the Polish Film Institute, Radio and Television Slovakia, the Minority Culture Fund, Creative Europe – MEDIA, the Kosice Self-governing Region, the Czech Film Fund and the Belgian Tax Shelter have supported the project.

  • EAVE project EVERYTHING THAT’S WRONG WITH YOU by Ursa Menart, producers: EAVE graduate Katja Lenarcic, EAVE+ graduate Danijel Hocevar, EAVE graduate Alexander Wadouh is in production. Menart tells the story of the trouble that the younger generation is having fitting into a world that was not created for it. The protagonist, Marusa, connects with Alja, a nurse who works abroad, online, and the two quickly become friends. When Alja falls ill, Marusa travels to her place only to find out that not everything is the way it seemed at the start. “The film tells a story about searching for closeness: the generation the two leading characters belong to is lonelier than any generation before it, and meeting new friends as an adult is even more difficult than forging friendships at a young age,” Menart said. “The world is merciless to young women, especially those who don’t benefit from strong support or have a background in power structures. The film depicts the contrasts between these feelings of invisibility and not belonging, and the longing for a human connection, for deep friendships, like those we often see in the movies, and for someone to finally understand us.” EVERYTHING THAT’S WRONG WITH YOU is a Slovenian-Serbian-German-Croatian co-production involving Vertigo, Radio-Television Slovenia, Living Pictures, Chromosom Films, Tidewater Pictures and Eclectica. It has received technical support from Studio Viba Film and financial backing from the Slovenian Film Centre, Film Center Serbia, Creative Europe – MEDIA and Re-Act. Filming takes place on location in the town of Tolmin, perched up in the mountains in the northwest of Slovenia. It will last for around 30 working days in and around Tolmin, Kranj, Nova Gorica and Ljubljana, as well as on the island of Usedom in the Baltic Sea.

  • STILL LIFE WITH GHOSTS by Enrique Buleo, co-producer: EAVE graduate Snezana van Houwelingen is in post-production. The film is made up of stories about the residents of a small Spanish inland town where believing in paranormal activity is fully accepted. Principal photography began in late September and took place in different locations in Manchuela Conquense, Cuenca (specifically, in Villanueva de la Jara, the director’s place of birth, El Picazo, Casasimarro, Iniesta and Amodóvar del Pinar), Castellón and Valencia. Indeed, in the movie, dark comedy, rural drama, absurd humour, magical realism (specifically that from La Mancha) and even science fiction exist side by side. "The movie is a half-comical, half-morbid portrait of some of the most primal and universal fears and desires… After all, it tackles subjects such as the search for one’s identity, the struggle against solitude and fear of the pointlessness of life.” STILL LIFE WITH GHOSTS is being staged by Spanish outfits Quatre Films and Cuidado con el perro, in co-production with France’s Ikki Films and Serbia’s This and That. It has received support from the ICAA, the Valencian Cultural Institute and Creative Europe – MEDIA. In addition, it boasts the involvement of À Punt Media, Castilla-La Mancha Media and ETuria CLM, following its victory in the feature-film production competition promoted by the Film Commission of the Autonomous Regional Government of Castile-La Mancha. The title triumphed in the When East Meets West Coproduction Forum and Abycine Lanza, besides taking part in the Producers Under the Spotlight programme at the Cannes Marché du Film and the Visitors Programme of the Berlinale’s EFM.

  • HAMBURG by Lino Escalera, producers: EAVE+ graduates Jose Alba, Odile Antonio-Baez is in post-production. The screenplay to this thriller that broaches the thorny issue of mafia-run female prostitution, introduces us to Germán, the man in charge of ferrying around women who work as slaves in gentlemen’s venues on the Costa del Sol. Penniless and completely adrift, he tries to make a living by working for Cacho, an old friend of his who manages several of these venues for the local mafia, until one night, an opportunity presents itself: he leaves it all behind and decides to steal the club’s takings. What seems like a chance to completely turn his life around will put him in more danger than ever before. He will only have one option left – the same as the one being contemplated by the girls he takes from one place to another each night, like Alina: to pull off a successful escape. HAMBURG is a production by Spanish outfits Zeta Cinema, Icónica Producciones, Tandem Films and Pecado Films, and Romania’s Cinelab. The film has secured funding from the ICAA, the Andalusian Regional Government and the Community of Madrid, and boasts the involvement of Netflix and Canal Sur.

  • SNESCHA AND FRANZ by Svetoslav Draganov, co-producer: EAVE graduate Katya Trichkova is in post-production. Draganov tells a universal story about the call of freedom vs. the family life, based on the relationship between his aunt and his uncle. Тhe film digs into the call to distant lands, cultures and adventures against the meaning of creating a “family hearth”, and it is looking for an answer to the question: Is it possible to strike a good balance between individual longing and shared family wishes? “Snescha and Franz are my aunt and uncle. One of my brightest childhood memories is how my Austrian uncle Franz projected slides from his adventures on a big white sheet taken from the parent’s bed: skiing in Sahara, boat sailing along the Niger River... Then, during the years, I found his Super 8mm films and his unpublished books. In one of them I found a letter to Snescha and their kids in which he writes: “Yes, the difference between the individual wishes and longings and the common family wishes exists. I know those contradictions and try to see them or at least hold out. I try to do more things with you, to go on and find a good balance. I hope our measurements for balance are close”, Svetoslav Draganov said. Draganov is producing through Bulgaria’s Cineaste Maudit Productions in co-production with Katya Trichkova through Contrast Films (Bulgaria), with support from the Bulgarian National Film Center, Creative Europe MEDIA and Wiener Stadt und Landesarchiv. SNESCHA AND FRANZ was shot in 45 shooting days mainly in Austria. The shooting period started in February 2020 and finished in October 2022. The project was part of the Docu Talents from the East (2021) and MakeCoProDox Forum (2023).

ODD FISH by Snævar Sölvason is shooting

In production

  • ODD FISH by Snævar Sölvason, co-producer: EAVE+ graduate Jukka Helle is in production. The story tackles the themes of identity and acceptance. Set in a small community in Iceland’s northern Westfjords, it follows two childhood friends, Björn and Hjalti, who run a popular seafood restaurant in a fishing village where they were born and raised. The pair are polar opposites: Hjalti is a confident family man and a big fish in town, Björn a reserved, single guy who has always lived in his parents’ house. As the pair suddenly get an opportunity to keep their fish restaurant going all year round, Björn comes out as a trans woman. Can his best friend overcome his prejudice and accept what truly matters in life? ODD FISH is being produced by Julius Kemp and Ingvar Pordarson for The Icelandic Film Company (Iceland), and co-produced by Solar Films (Finland) and Axman Production (Czech Republic). The project has received backing from the Icelandic Film Centre, Iceland’s tax rebate and the Nordisk Film & TV Fond.

  • POLVO SERAN by Carlos Marques-Marcet, producers: EAVE graduates Eugenia Mumenthaler, Giovanni Pompili is in production. Written by the director himself along with Clara Roquet the original soundtrack of the musical tragicomedy is by the artist, singer and composer Maria Arnal and the choreographies are the creation of the dance company La Veronal. According to the synopsis, when Claudia decides that she does not want to wait for a disease to destroy her body, her partner, Flavio, who has not been separated from her for the last forty years, puts into action their old plan to end their life together in Switzerland thanks to the help of an association for voluntary assisted death. Meanwhile, their daughter Violeta becomes an involuntary mediator between her parents and everything they leave behind, while at the same time looking for her place in this story of unconditional love. The film raises questions such as; are we able to prepare ourselves for death? Why do we cling to life? What is it that makes us afraid of death? Is all affection conditional or is some unconditional? Is love for children always unconditional? From love to death through comedy, drama, music and dance. According to Marques-Marcet, "in this mixture of genres, the musical will allow us to approach these complex emotions and the unfathomable hole of death where words cannot reach, expressed through the body and music. The choreographies are intended not as a pause in the narrative, but as a way to keep the film moving forward by exploring the characters from another angle". POLVO SERAN is a production from Lastor Media (Spain), Alina Film (Switzerland) and Kino Produzioni (Italy) with the collaboration of the ICAA, ICEC and MEDIA – Europa Creativa, and supported by RTVE, Movistar Plus+, Direzione generale Cinema e audiovisivo del Ministero della Cultura DGCA - MIC, IDM Film Fund & Commission Südtirol Alto Adige and Eurimages. Filming takes place during October, November and December on location in Barcelona, the Italian Alps and Switzerland.

  • MY FATHER’S SHOES by Hristo Simeonov, producer: EAVE graduate Katya Trichkova, co-producer: EAVE graduate Jean-Laurent Csinidis is shooting. After completing five short films, Bulgarian director Hristo Simeonov deepens his research on human relationships by focusing on a family constellation, with a father who abandoned his closest ones long time ago. The script delves into the world of Mima who was raised by her stubborn mother, Boyka. She had long lost contact with her father when she learns that he has passed away, and when the father's body arrives in their village, no one can recognise him except for Boyka, who refuses to see him. Amidst this complicated situation, mother and daughter must face their own pain as they reconcile with the past. Producer Katya Trichkova reveals that the script was developed over the course of two years. The project was also presented at Sofia Meetings and Crossroads in 2021. Backed by Bulgaria’s Contrast Films and France’s Films de Force Majeure, while relying on the support of the Bulgarian National Film Centre and CNC - Cinema du Monde, the production will have 24 shooting days, starting on 2 November with a small crew and no expensive equipment.

  • LOS DESTELLOS by Pilar Palomero, producer: EAVE graduate Valérie Delpierre is shooting. The plot, written by the director, tells how Isabel's life takes an unexpected turn the day her daughter Madalen asks her to visit Ramón, who is ill, on a regular basis. After fifteen years away from her ex-husband, whom she sees as a stranger despite the fact that they were family for years, resentments that she thought she had gotten past begin to resurface in Isabel. However, by accompanying the man at his most vulnerable moment, Isabel will be able to see the failure they experienced through different eyes and focus on the present of her own existence. Based on the story ‘Un corazón demasiado grande’, by the Basque writer Eider Rodríguez, Pilar Palomero states that "from the very first moment I was intrigued by this story which, broadly speaking, was about the forced reunion of a couple that didn't work out. I felt that this conflict allowed me to think about how contradictory and complex the ties we create can be and, above all, to propose a reflection on the impressions that we make and leave behind, and that make us who we are". LOS DESTELLOS is a production from MOD, Misent Producciones and Inicia Films with the participation of RTVE, Movistar Plus+, TVC and À Punt, with funding from ICAA - Instituto de la Cinematografía y de las Artes Audiovisuales and the collaboration of the ICEC - Generalitat de Catalunya and IVC - Generalitat Valenciana. The film is being shot on location in Horta de Sant Joan and Tortosa (both in Tarragona, Catalonia) over the months of October and November.

  • SUBMERGÉE by Alanté Kavaïté, producer: EAVE graduate Antoine Simkine is in production. Written by Alanté Kavaïté the story takes us to an island with no future, given that it’s already partly submerged underwater. A woman is caring for ten or so very elderly individuals, but the arrival of five travellers turns their lives upside down… Produced by Les Films D’Antoine, together with Estrella Productions, the film enjoys support from the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region and the department of Charente-Maritime, where filming will continue throughout November, with Chilean-Danish cinematographer Manuel Alberto Claro heading up photography.

In post-production

  • SIMONA KOSSAK by Adrian Panek, producer: EAVE graduate Magdalena Kaminska is in post-production. Written and directed by Adrian Panek, the film tells the story of a Polish biologist. Coming from a renowned family of artists (both her father Jerzy and grandfather Wojciech were famous painters, and her aunts Maria Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska and Magdalena Samozwaniec were poets), Simona had no talents towards arts whatsoever. Eventually, in the mid 1960s she studied biology and after graduating, she moved to examine Białowieża Forest, where she lived in a small hut for 30 years. She was involved with nature photographer Lech Wilczek, whom she met in the wilderness. According to the press release, Simona Kossak focuses both on that relationship and on Simona’s professional efforts and her struggles as a woman biologist in a male-dominated environment. Adrian Panek states that his character is somewhat “archetypical” because she “rebels and runs away from her family, circumstances, place of birth, and wanders into the unknown in order to forget who she was or who she was told to be. And that way, she finds herself.” He adds that the film is also about Białowieża Forest, its story and the people connected to it. Simona Kossak recently regained popularity among Polish audiences thanks to a documentary by Natalia Koryncka-Gruz, titled Simona. Magdalena Kaminska and Agata Szymanska are producing the film through their Polish company Balapolis, while the co-producers are Documentary and Feature Film Studios, Krakow Festival Office and Hollman Emea Limited.

  • SOVJET JEANS by Staņislavs Tokalovs and Juris Kursietis, producer: EAVE graduate and Latvian National Coordinator Aija Berzina is in post-production. The eight-episode series set in 1979 Soviet Latvia, the time of the fiercest propaganda against Western culture is based on true stories and follows Renars. The rock & roll fan and petty criminal is committed to a mental asylum for political reasons, where he starts illegal production of counterfeit US cult jeans together with his fellow inmates. The jeans gain popularity among the Latvian youth and Renars becomes an anonymous underground legend while the KGB searches for the jeans tailoring shop all over the country. “The socialist youth, the battles in the KGB, the obedient, the rebels, the thugs… all of them are victims of the same absurd madness. Our characters and their story pose the question: is it here in the madhouse that the only normality is born, while the world outside is crazy? All the authors in the team have different experiences with life in the Soviet era, but we are all born in different parts of the Socialist bloc. For us, this series is important not only because of the extraordinary point of view of the period, but also because of the terrifying parallels with the events of the present. We want to tell this story in its complexity, without going into extremely dark shades, but on the contrary, to feel hope, humour and beauty,” scriptwriter Teodora Markova said. SOVJET JEANS is produced by Aija Berzina through Tasse Film and it is supported by the National Film Centre of Latvia, as well as Go3 and Depo DIY.

  • THE MISSILE by Miia Tervo, Elokuvayhtiö Komeetta, producer: EAVE graduate Evelin Penttilä is in post-production. The film is a dramedy about personal and national borders and boundaries, and it follows single mother Niina, who drifts into the middle of an international missile crisis in Inari when the Soviet Union shoots a missile across the Finnish border. “The film portrays the journey of Niina, a single mother in an abusive relationship, as she becomes entangled in the investigation surrounding the missile crash. Through this empowering process, Niina discovers her voice and gains the courage to stand up for herself. The film's creative team consists of talented professionals from Finland and Estonia, collaborating under the guidance of director Miia Tervo, and crafting a work with the potential to resonate with audiences all over the world”, producer Johanna Maria Paulson said. Kaisla Viitala and Daniel Kuitunen are producing through Komeetta (Finland) in co-production with Johanna Maria Paulson and EAVE graduate Evelin Penttilä through Stellar Film (Estonia). The project was fully financed at the end of 2022 and the production started in February 2023. From Estonia the production of the film was supported by the Estonian Film Institute, Estonian Cultural Endowment and the FilmEstonia cash rebate scheme. The project was also supported by Eurimages. Filming took place in February and March 2023, in Lapland and Estonia. All the exteriors were shot in Northern Finland (in Kemijärvi and Pelkosenniemi), while the interiors were shot in Estonia (Tallinn and nearby).

The deadline for submission to the open calls for the Last Stop Trieste, This is IT, EAVE Slate and Inspirational Labs has been extended to November 24, 2023 at 23.59 CET, to allow as many producers as possible to finalise their applications.

Companies from Europe and Latin America keen on focusing on how to build a successful slate and strategic planning can register to the EAVE Slate.

EAVE Slate will select up to 12 European and Latin American 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.

We are delighted to announce that all participation costs (including tuition fee, accommodation and partial airfare reimbursement) of up to 10 selected Latin American producers will be covered thanks to the collaboration with IBERMEDIA.

Producers with a creative documentary in the final stage of editing - developed in one of the WEMW partner platforms* - and looking for festivals, sales, broadcasters and a final round of feedback session can apply to Last Stop Trieste.

Works in progress produced/co-produced with Italy, or produced by one of the WEMW 2024 Countries in Focus**, can be submitted to This is IT to find festival premiere and international distribution.

Professionals from Europe, Canada and Latin America willing to develop new business models, explore new formats and connect with new markets can apply to one of the Inspirational Labs, run in collaboration with leading training providers and international partners.

PUENTES 2023 – the final workshop kicked off in Uruguay!

The second and final session of PUENTES, EAVE’s European-Latin American co-production workshop, starts today, November 20th in Montevideo (Uruguay) and will run until November 26th!

The carefully selected group of Latin American and European participants will reunite again to develop their projects, work on their careers and company structures, think internationally and build strong professional links between Europe and Latin America under the guidance of experienced PUENTES experts.

Experts and programme

The core tutors include Head of Studies Fernanda del Nido (Setembro Cine, AR/ES), Script Consultant Jacques Akchoti (FR), LATAM Consultant, Workshop partner and expert Agustina Chiarino (Bocacha Films, AR) and Didar Domehri (Maneki Films, FR).

The second workshop will feature top Latin American professionals Álvaro Arroba (Directors Fortnight – Cannes, FR), Ester Bernal (Piano, MX), Pablo Carrizosa (Totem Films, FR), Alessandro Gropplero (FVG Audiovisual Fund, IT) and Gema Juárez Allen (GEMA Films, AR).

To spice up the programme, we are organising a special screening of the film POWER ALLEY (LEVANTE) by Lillah Halla produced by PUENTES participant Clarissa Guarilha. This year, the film won the FIPRESCI award in Cannes and was honoured at Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival for Best Director and Best Editing.

The new edition of EAVE Marketing Workshop is kicking off today!

At EAVE, November is the time when creative ideas are born and innovative marketing strategies are developed!

The 2023 edition of the EAVE Marketing Workshop will take place in Luxembourg from 7 to 12 November. The event will bring together 36 filmmakers to get a 360˚ overview of the latest trends and tools in film marketing, including AI and social media marketing.

After a deep dive into the plenary sessions in the morning, participants will work on design thinking techniques in the afternoon with visual, tangible and playful exercises that are equally creative, innovative and strategic. Inspired by the EAVE sharing pedagogy, the result is a hands-on workshop with concrete tools that everyone can immediately apply in their own team. This informal way of learning facilitates network and community building across countries from all over the world.

Participants will be working alongside cutting-edge marketing specialists, such as Heads of Studies Alya Belgaroui-Degalet (MK2 Films, FR – international sales & marketing) and Sarah Calderón (The Film Agency, ES – marketing consultant) and core contributors like PR Expert Michael Arnon (Wolf Consultants – PR, DE), and Distribution Expert Boris Pugnet (The Jokers Films, FR).

Other contributors and sessions include:

  • Lola Rodriguez (The Film Agency, Spain) and Kristoffer Barslund (Will and Agency / Publikum.io, DK) will give a session on Artificial Intelligence Opportunities in Marketing.
  • Social Media Expert Guillaume Boscher’s (Kelawin, FR) plenary and group sessions will focus on social media content tips and tools for Facebook and for Instagram.
  • Elena Neira (La Otra Pantalla - Professor, lecturer and researcher, ES) will dedicate her session to marketing and audiovisual consumption models in VOD platforms.
  • Manori Ravindran (Freelance journalist, Variety’s former executive editor) will give a lecture on International PR and Press and will work on Strategic Pitches for Press.

By the end of the week, the 36 carefully selected participants will have a complete overview of the actual marketing trades in terms of targeting and positioning, from international sales strategies to national publishing and creating awareness throughout the publishing process, including festivals.

"I expanded my knowledge in so many different layers. I am encouraged to brainstorm more, trust my instinct, take more initiatives and communicate my marketing plan more effectively. I have a different perspective of my role in the company, which gave me confidence and a boost of creativity."

Unlocking Leadership Excellence as Creative Producer Indaba Gathers Global Talent: 15 Participants Announced

Fifteen accomplished producers hailing from various corners of the globe have been selected to participate in the third edition of the Creative Producer Indaba (CPI).

This highly respected film industry professional development programme begins with an open assembly on 6 November, after which the cohort will attend the renowned Atlas Workshops, the dynamic industry programme of the Marrakech International Film Festival, Morocco from 25 November to 1 December where they will  focus on legal and financial aspects of their work, as well as their own career development. Following this, they will attend the International Film Festival Rotterdam (Netherlands) from 25 January to 2 February, 2024 where the programme will focus on marketing, sales and story development. The Indaba then culminates in a programme of online sessions from 8 to 12 April 2024.

The Creative Producer Indaba, conceived by Realness Institute under the leadership of programme director Elias Ribeiro, a Cape Town (SA) based NPO, has formed strategic alliances with noteworthy industry players such as EAVE, International Film Festival Rotterdam's IFFR Pro, and Atlas Workshops. Furthermore, in an effort to expand the Realness Network into the Global South, it has collaborated with the Brazilian foundation Projeto Paradiso, facilitating the participation of a Brazilian producer with interest in producing African projects.

"We're thrilled to welcome new collaborators on board, including the Canadian Film Fund, the Austrian Film Fund, Training Institute Focal, Jeune Création Francophone fund and the NFVF. Their support is a tremendous boost for the future sustainability of this vital program" says Elias Ribeiro, Co-Founder and Executive Director at Realness Institute.

The CPI offers this unique opportunity to 10 African producers, with and without projects, as well as 5 international producers to bolster their leadership and entrepreneurial capabilities, refine their production skills, and foster professional networks that span across both Africa and the international stage.

Having made significant contributions to the African film landscape Adja Mariam Soro (Côte d’Ivoire), Chloé Ortolé (Senegal), Dantagos Jimmy-Melani (Namibia), Godisamang Khunou (South Africa) and Nomusa Nkabinde (South Africa), are all seeking their next landmark venture and will use this opportunity to network, engage and seek out projects to become involved in.

Actively seeking international collaborators and financial backing to bring their visionary creations to life, African producers with projects in development include Dhia Jerbi (Tunisia), Kudakwashe Maradzika (South Africa/Zimbabwe), Misha Maseka (Zambia), Stefan Supplice (Morocco) and EAVE graduate Tapiwa Chipfupa (Zimbabwe).

The international producers include Anouk Shad (Austria), Marie Ka and Sherien Barsoum (Canada), Rhea Plangg (Switzerland) and Yolanda Barroso (Brazil), who join the CPI with interest in investing and engaging with African film projects.

An impressive ensemble of industry experts will mentor the filmmakers – including Group Leaders Mehret Mandefro and Diana Elbaum, Story consultant and Creative Producer 2022 alumnus Tracey Lee Rainers. And, as part of the programme the cohort will be able to engage with seasoned ad highly experienced industry experts such as Femi Odugbemi, Sata Cissokho, Constanza Arena  and Dayo Ogunyemi, and IFFR Festival Director Vanja Kaludjercic, who will share their skills, insights, and guidance.

Mehret Mandefro, the Director of Development and Partnership at the Realness Institute says “Training and connecting producers that can skillfully develop African stories and finance them for both the local and global market is a critical intervention.”

“EAVE is proud to partner again and contribute with our methodology for the third edition of  INDABA with an incredibly strong cohort of African and international producers who will enhance their entrepreneurial and producing skills and become part of a thriving professional support network through their participation,” says Kristina Trapp, the CEO of EAVE.

Vanja Kaldudjercic  IFFR Festival Director says “The Indaba is a powerful example of the importance of lasting bonds in our industry, both between the exciting talent on the programme and our partners at Realness, EAVE, the Atlas Workshops, and everyone else who makes this programme possible. We're delighted we can continue to develop the skills and creativity of these producers, and look forward to another fruitful edition.”

Head of Atlas Workshops at Marrakech IFF, Hédi Zardi says “Our collaboration with the program Creative Producer Indaba is very inspiring because it actively participates in the dynamic that we create within the Atlas Workshops. Indaba helps us anchor our support for the African producers of tomorrow. Creativity can only rhyme with diversity.”

The Realness Institute acknowledges the support of Institut Français d’Afrique du Sud, the Brazilian foundation Projeto Paradiso, the Austrian Film Institute, The Canada Media Fund, the Austrian Film Institute, The Swiss training organisation Focal and The Storyboard Collective, the Jeune Création Francophone fund and in partnership with European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs (EAVE), International Film Festival Rotterdam Pro (IFFR Pro), and Marrakech International Film Festival (Atlas Workshops).

EAVE project THE LOST SON by Darko Stante is shooting!

In production

  • EAVE project THE LOST SON by Darko Stante, producers: EAVE graduates Nina Robnik, Miha Cernec, co-producer: EAVE graduate Konstantina Stavrianou started shooting. The film tells a story about police investigator Andrej, who encounters his long-lost brother Kristian during an intervention in a case of domestic abuse, where the latter is the perpetrator. Andrej left the family home, dominated by their abusive father, 12 years prior and severed all contact with his family. Now, he makes an effort to help Kristian, risking his professional career in process. The script, written by the filmmaker himself, was developed at the ScriptTeast and at EAVE Producers Workshop. Regarding his directorial vision, Štante said: “I am wondering if the cycle of violence, running from one generation into the next, making the victim become the perpetrator, can be broken. Despite the heavy topic, I am trying to make a film that can communicate with a wide audience, spreading the discussion further.”  The producers of the film are Miha Černec and Nina Robnik for Slovenian outfit Staragara. The co-production companies are Propeler Film from Croatia (represented by Boris T Matić and Lana Matić), Kaval Film (Robert Jazadzizki) from North Macedonia and Graal Film (Konstantina Stavrianou) from Greece. THE LOST SON has received support from the Slovenian Film Centre, RTV Slovenia, Studio Viba Film, the Croatian Audiovisual Centre, the North Macedonia Film Agency, the Creative Europe – MEDIA programme and the Re-Act initiative. The shoot, taking place on location around Ljubljana and in Trieste, Italy, should last for 30 days, according to the schedule.

  • TIES THAT BIND project A MISSING PART by Guillaume Senez, producers: TTB graduate Nathan Duboutay, EAVE graduate Jacques-Henry Bronckart is shooting. The film paints the portrait of Jay, every day, he drives through Tokyo behind the wheel of his taxi looking for his daughter Lily. Separated for 9 years, he’s never been able to get custody. Just when he’s stopped hoping to see her again and is about to return to France, Lily comes into his taxi, but doesn’t recognise him… Guillaume Senez therefore returns to his favourite themes and also explores an aspect of Japanese culture that remains little known in the West, namely that many divorces lead to the almost complete rupture of bonds with one of the two parents, especially when that parent is a foreigner. Guillaume Senez is working for the first time with Belgian producers Nathan Duboutay  and Jacques-Henry Bronckart for Versus Production. Co-produced by Les Films Pelléas (France) and Savage Film (Belgium), in partnership with the Centre du Cinéma et de lAudiovisuel de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, RTBF, VOO and Be tv, Proximus, the Federal Belgian Government Tax Shelter and the Inver Tax Shelter, the Flanders Audiovisual Fund and OBrother Distribution.

She decides to travel to the beach in Trieste, where her brother died, to find closure. During the journey, she not only picks up a new zest for life but also develops an unexpected friendship with Helmut.

  • MARIA by Pablo Larrain, producer: EAVE graduate Jonas Dornbach is in production. Production began early this month on MARIA, the Chilean director’s new film on Maria Callas, known as La Divina and one of the most revered opera singers of the 20th century. Angelina Jolie is in the title role. Originally born in New York to Greek-immigrant parents, Callas received her musical training after returning to Greece, and battled through 1940s wartime poverty to establish herself later in Italy as a bel canto star; later on, her life was ridden by scandal, tragedy and her struggle with near-sightedness. The movie, as per the official logline, will tell “the tumultuous, beautiful and tragic story of the life of the world’s greatest opera singer, relived and re-imagined during her final days in 1970s Paris. Callas possessed a tremulous, emotive soprano range that will definitely be aurally familiar to viewers, given the abundance of classic opera “cues” in various cinema and media. It’s an instrument that feels like it could shatter glass, in the time-honoured cliché, yet it has a stirring, grandiose quality. The film is produced by Juan de Dios Larraín for Chile’s Fabula, Lorenzo Mieli for Italy’s The Apartment Pictures and Jonas Dornbach for Germany’s Komplizen Film.

  • FLOOD by Martin Gonda, producer: EAVE graduate and Slovak National Coordinator Katarina Krnacova, co-producer: EAVE graduate Izabela Igel is in production. The producers are applying the principles of green filming. It is the second Slovak green film produced by Silverart. “Benefiting from our previous experiences, with the first Slovak ‘green-film’ STAND UP, directed by Juraj Bohus, we applied the principles of green filming also in the preproduction and the production of FLOOD . We hired a certified green film manager long ahead of the shooting to carefully plan all the steps towards a sustainable production. We use our set of 10 basic rules, the ‘Ten Green Commandments’, which cover all the departments throughout the entire production process,“ producer Katarina Krnacova said. Set in the 1980’s, FLOOD tells the story of Mara, whose home valley is doomed due to the project of a new water reservoir. The villagers are forced to gradually leave their homes. Mara longs to leave the countryside and study in town, however, her father, who is a Ruthenian farmer, keeps her tied to the family land, which he refuses to let go of despite the end approaching. Mara finds herself in the core of the village community fighting against the failing infrastructure, hidden terrors of the authorities and the incoming flood. „Most of the characters are played by authentic Ruthenian actors and non-professional actors from this particular region. It is actually the first feature film about Ruthenians that is also in their language, since most of the dialogues are in Ruthenian“ Krnacova said. Katarina Krnacova and Tomas Gic are producing through Silverart in co-production with Izabela Igel through Polish Harine Films, Viktor Schwarcz through CINEART TV Prague and Henry Gillet through Belgian Y-House. The film was supported by the Slovak Audiovisual Fund, the Polish Film Institute, the Radio and Television Slovakia, the Minority Culture Fund, Creative Europe MEDIA, the Košice Self-Governing Region, Czech Film Fund and the Belgian Tax Shelter.

The co-producers are Jelena Mitrovic, Miha Černec, Josko Rutar, Mirsad Purivatra, EAVE FFF graduate Jovan Marjanovic and Anamaria Antoci.

  • THE PRICE OF MONEY: A LARGO WINCH ADVENTURE by Olivier Masset-Depasse, producer: EAVE graduate Jacques-Henri Bronckart is in post-production. The film has been adapted from volumes 13 and 14 of the comic hit series The Price of Money, and The Law of the Dollar, which return to their comic book roots by dragging the hero into a complicated investigation against a backdrop of globalisation and other mergers and acquisitions, confronting him with his own contradictions. Devastated by the kidnapping of his 15-year-old son, Largo Winch is trying to hold it together when one of his associates brutally takes his own life in the middle of a press conference. Just as the world seems to be turning against him and his industrial empire folding, he discovers that the two events may be linked: if he finds those responsible for his bankruptcy, maybe he’ll see his son again? Largo doesn’t yet realise that his quest will lead him directly to hell. The film is carried out by Belgian producer Jacques-Henri Bronckart on behalf of Versus Production and Nathalie Gastaldo Godeau for Pan-Européenne (France).

Gradually all three of them discover to what extent this tragic background affects their current relationships and learn to reconcile their past. THE SILENT TREATMENT is produced by Tomas Leyers of Minds Meet (Belgium) in co-production with Denis Vaslin of Volya Films (the Netherlands) and Judit Stalter of Laokoon Filmgroup (Hungary).

It was a pleasure to be part of a production with a real Hungarian storyline, with Hungarian characters, and where Budapest can shape itself. One of the defining locations of our film is the justly famous Gellér Hotel, which we managed to capture with its original patina before its closure and complete renovation", Hungarian co-producer Judit Stalter.

EXPLORER KONFERENZ (October 6)

Sessions in partnership with EAVE:

  • Documentary (and Drawing) Power driving Social Change with EAVE graduate Hanne Phlypo

EAVE project DRAW FOR CHANGE! is a six-part documentary series about female cartoonists in Mexico, USA, Russia, India, Syria, and Egypt. The series blends documentary and animation in exploration of themes such as female representation, femicide, censorship, and democracy. EAVE graduate Producer Hanne Phlypo of Clin d’Oeil Films (Brussels) explored how documentary film can drive social change and shared her experience on packaging, financing, producing and releasing this project. Draw for Change! is produced in collaboration with European broadcasters and is being released as a TV-series, one-offs, a VR experience, an exhibition and a book.

  • Social Impact Entertainment and impact-driven decision making with EAVE+ graduate Mariana Oliva and Luana Lobo

Stories have the power to change the world. But it is not only about the stories themselves, it is also about how works – films and series in particular – are having an impact based on the ways they are produced and marketed. EAVE+ graduates Luana Lobo and Mariana Oliva from Maria Farinha Filmes (Sao Paulo) dived into the particular business model and collective intelligence of their production company, that is fully dedicated to social impact entertainment, diversity and sustainability, and explored how they have implemented work principles based on these values, with an innovative form of leadership, and a focus on audience development.

in partnership with European Virtual Production Alliance

“Demystifying VP and its applications for independent productions and industry”

Virtual Production has undoubtedly been one of the most spoken-about industry innovations of recent years, yet for independent industries, it remains a practice shrouded in mystery. Is it only about hyper-expensive LED screens and blockbuster productions, or will this novel approach also revolutionise independent productions?

The VIRTUAL INNOVATION Lab, organised in partnership with European Virtual Production Alliance - an industry network of Europe’s leading virtual production experts and studios, will demystify virtual production once and all for independent industry leaders from financiers decision makers to producers, VFX supervisors, and below the line crew. This Lab will look into different forms of VP, including In-Camera VFX, LED production, previsualization, virtual cameras, and set capturing, as well as into how to assess VP suitability for your production, how to budget and plan the workflow, and how to manage the process from start to finish successfully. The Lab will also present recent case studies from awarded European festival favourites and feature films and TV series to give the participant a 360-degree look into the world of V.

  • FATHER by Tereza Nvotova, co-producer: EAVE graduate Mariusz Wlodarski is in pre-production. The film tells the story of a man who has everything until one tragic summer day, when he realises too late that the infant daughter, he thought he dropped off at nursery is actually still locked in the back of the car. „Every year, all around the world, dozens of children die in exactly this way. Often, the facts are the same: one day, the loving parent gets confused by a change to their daily routine and while busy, forgets the child inside a vehicle. Experts call this phenomenon ‘Forgotten Baby Syndrome’ and it is a legally recognised condition across the world, not in Slovakia. FATHER will be a subjective film, consisting of several long shots. The audience will experience the father’s moment-to-moment reality, first on the day of the tragedy and then during the crucial moments of the following months, “ director Tereza Nvotova said. The drama based on tragic real events is produced by Slovak DANAE Production in co-production with Czech’s moloko film, Polish Lava Films and the Czech Television. The film is supported by the Slovak Audiovisual Fund, the Czech Film Fund and the Polish Film Institute. Shooting will take place in two phases during January and July 2024.

EAVE project MAYSOON is shooting

In production

  • EAVE project MAYSOON by Nancy Biniadaki, producer: EAVE graduate Christopher Zitterbart is in production. The film is set more than a decade after the Arab Spring, when the young Egyptian Maysoon leads a happy life in Berlin with her boyfriend Tobi and two children. Due to private problems and repressed events from her political past, her life begins to falter, and Maysoon has to fear losing everything once again: Family, home, freedom. "I want to tell the story of a woman who has to fight for things we take for granted, reflecting two important themes - the independence of every human being and especially of a woman, and being a stranger in a society," says Nancy Biniadaki. The script was developed in the Script to Film Workshop of the Mediterranean Film Institute and won the Initiative Film Development Award at the Crossroads Co-Production Forum in Thessaloniki. MAYSOON participated in the 2021 Berlinale Co-Production Market. The film is a European cinema co-production by Watchmen Productions, in co-production with Graal Films and unafilm, rbb Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg, GFC (Greece) and ERT (Greece). MAYSOON is created with the support of the Creative Europe - MEDIA Programme of the European Union and is funded by Minister of State for Culture and the Media, Medienboard Berlin- Brandenburg, Hessen Film & Medien, DFFF German Federal Film Fund , the Hellenic Broadcaster and the Greek Film Centre.

  • SENTIMENTAL VALUE by Joachim Trier, producer: EAVE graduate Jonas Dornbach is in production. Co-written by the Norwegian director and his usual accomplice Eskil Vogt, the story kicks off when Nora and Agnès’ mother passes away, and their father Gustav subsequently reappears in their lives. A film director of former renown, he has written a screenplay in which he would like Nora, who is now an actress, to play the main part, but the latter refuses categorically. During a retrospective on his work at a French festival, Gustav meets a young Hollywood star who declares herself blown away by one of his previous films and who expresses a desire to work with him. He offers her the role initially written for Nora, seeing this as an unhoped-for opportunity to relaunch his career. The film shoot in Norway becomes an opportunity for Gustav to face his demons, as well as one last chance to reconnect with his daughters… SENTIMENTAL VALUE is produced by Mer Film and Eye Eye Pictures (Norway), Ex Nihilo and MK Productions (France), Komplizen Film (Germany) and Zentropa (Denmark and Sweden). Having kicked off in August, filming will continue until October in Norway, France and Germany.

In post-production

  • AURORA by Rain Tolk and Andres Maimik, producer: EAVE graduate Madis Tüür is in post-production. The film is made using the character-based improvisation method, which has not yet been widely applied in Estonia. The story and the characters have been created through improvisation in real environments and real-life situations. The film tells the story of Aurora, the daughter of a religious leader, who enters a secret extramarital affair that challenges her life arrangements. She tries to please everyone, but when it's time for a lavish wedding anniversary celebration, an uninvited guest arrives. Secrets begin to reveal themselves at the wrong time and in the wrong place. "As Estonian poet and philosopher Tonu Ennepalu writes: We live between boredom and pain. When feelings go over our heads, we long for stability and peace, but when this stability is too much, we long for madness, freedom, and raw feelings," say the directors. Madis Tüür is producing through Estonian company Kuukulgur Film, in partnership with Pimik and High Voltage rental. The project has been financed by the Estonian Film Institute, the Estonian Cultural Endowment, the Ida-Viru Film Fund and the Tartu Film Fund.

YEAR OF THE WIDOW by Veronika Liskova is in production

In production

  • COME BACK by Jan and Raf Roosens, co-producers: EAVE graduates Jacques-Henri Bronckart, Ellen Havenith is in production. The coming-of-age tale centers on the character of Ava, a young woman of 14 who is attempting to find where she belongs in the world. She is "bedazzled" by the spotlight trained on her parents, a couple of DJs who have had their moment of glory. Now they are divorced, and Ava lives alone with her father. When her mum, Naomi, tries to make a comeback on the international DJing scene, Ava will discover a new world – that of nightlife and clubs. But while her mother is in her element, things are more complicated for Ava, who will have to adapt if she wants to avoid losing her own identity. The movie is being produced by Bart Van Langendonck for Savage Film, and co-produced by Jacques-Henri Bronckart for Versus Productions (Belgium), as well as by Rococo, the directors’ own outfit, and Ellen Havenith for PRPL (Netherlands). It has received backing from the Flanders Audiovisual Fund, screen.brussels, the Tax Shelter and Shelter Prod, as well as from Antwerp Film Bonus and the Netherlands Film Fund.

  • YEAR OF THE WIDOW by Veronika Liskova, producers: EAVE graduates Miljenka Cogelja, Tomas Michalek is in production. Stemming from a diary-esque article by Zuzana Pokorna, the narrative intimately charts her initial twelve months of widowhood. YEAR OF THE WIDOW traces the journey of Petra, thrust into an unanticipated world of grief following the sudden loss of her partner. More than grappling with her personal anxiety, she must contend with a labyrinth of bureaucratic hurdles reminiscent of a Kafkaesque nightmare. Presented from Petra’s perspective, the film explores the immediate emotional aftermath of loss, further complicated by the maze of social norms and legal proceedings she must traverse. Thus, the psychological drama morphs into a poignant societal commentary on grief, survival, and death in today’s world. The film captures the transformative narrative of a young widow reconstructing her life after the death of her partner and discovering newfound independence. Year of the Widow is produced by Kristyna Michalek Kvetova and EAVE graduate Tomas Michalek from the Czech outfit Cinémotif Films, Peter Kerekes and Anna Mach Rumanova of Kerekesfilm (Slovakia) and EAVE graduate Croatian producer Miljenka Cogelja of Pipser. The Czech Film Fund, the Slovak Audiovisual Fund, and the Croatian Audiovisual Centre, as well as the Czech regions of Pilsen and Usti, supported the film.  

http://www.pipser.hr

  • KLAUS AND BARROSO by Bogdan Theodor Olteanu, producer: EAVE graduate Anda Ionescu is in production. The script written by Adrian Nicolae, Cosmin „Micutzu” Nedelcu and Bogdan Theodor Olteanu follows a bartender who, being forced to urgently return some money, convinces his bodyguard brother to organise a bachelor party without his bosses’ permission. Bold Film Studio is producing in co-production with Romanian companies Grupa B, Tangaj Production and Avanpost Media. The film is an independent project supported by several companies: MediaCom, Mindshare, Wavemaker, Neumarkt, Pepsi, Lays, Dentsu Romania, Ursus, Caii de la Letea, Sameday and Presto.

In post-production

  • REINE MÈRE by Manele Libadi, co-producer: EAVE graduate Jean-Yves Roubin is in post-production. Blending social chronicle and bittersweet comedy, REINE MÈRE paints the portrait of a Tunisian family living in France in the early 1990s  and uses comedy to explore questions such as the search for identity, generational conflicts and latent racism in France. Penned by the director, the story revolves around Amel and his family who learn, one day, that their landlord wishes to take back his apartment within a few months’ time. As his eldest daughter Mouna starts to have visions of Charles Martel and their application for a new socially-funded home drags on, Amel has no other choice but to reinvent himself… REINE MÈRE is produced by Jean-Christophe Reymond on behalf of Kazak Productions, in co-production with Arte France Cinéma, and by Belgium’s Frakas Productions. Pre-purchased by Arte, Canal+, Amazon Prime Video, RTBF and Proximus, the feature film is likewise supported by the Ile-de-France and Grand Est regions (where the film was shot in its entirety, commencing 12 June), the Eurometropolis of Strasbourg and the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.
