  • FACING DARKNESS by Jean-Gabriel Périot, producer: EAVE graduate Eugenia Mumenthaler is in preparation. The documentary will plunge into the heart of the 1325 days of the siege of Sarajevo (April 1992 - February 1996). The first part of the documentary will be made up of film clips shot during the siege by young filmmakers who took their cameras with them as they defended their city concretely and militarily. The second part of the film will be made up of interviews with these filmmakers who today testify to this singular experience. Aged between 18 and 25 at the time, some had voluntarily joined the army, others had been mobilized, and still others had preferred to be integrated into the civil protection. How and why did they start or continue making films? Did they pick up their cameras as they might have picked up guns? 25 years later, they remember the dark experiences they had. Produced by EAVE graduate Cécile Lestrade for French company Alter Ego Production with the Bosnians of Pravo Ljudsky (Kumjana Novakona) and the Swiss from Alina Film (David Epiney and Eugenia Mumenthaler), FACING DARKNESS will be co-produced by the Germans of Blinker Filmproduktion (Meike Martens). Amongst the partners are already the South region, the CNC and Méteore Films. Shooting will begin next April.

DISCO BOY by Giacomo Abbruzzese is now in production

  • THE FOX by Matthias Luthardt, producer: EAVE graduate Philippe Avril is shooting. Written by Sebastian Bley and inspired by British author D. H. Lawrence’s novella The Fox, the story takes us back to autumn 1918 and to an isolated farm in the hills, not far from the peaks of the Vosges Mountains, on the Alsatian side of the divide. Young and pious Protestant woman Luise is still in shock from the sudden death of her mother when a French woman called Hélène, who is being followed by a German solider named Hermann, takes refuge in her home. Despite their many differences, the three of them will be forced to cohabit. And, little by little, the tension begins to rise…. Produced by Oliver Damian on behalf of German firm 27 Films Production and by Philippe Avril on behalf of France’s Les Films de L’Étranger, THE FOX is bolstered by the French-German co-production mini-treaty (steered by the CNC and the FFA), and is also supported by Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR)/ARTE, by the Grand Est, Berlin-Brandebourg (MBB) and Baden-Württemberg (MFG) regions. By the Eurométropole of Strasbourg, the Vosges’ departmental council and the Strasbourg-based companies Will Production and La Cinéfiliale.

  • DISCO BOY by Giacomo Abbruzzese, co-producer: EAVE graduate Maria Blicharska is shooting. Written by the director, the screenplay follows two destinies at odds with each other. After a painful journey through Europe, Alex, the Belarusian, joins the Foreign Legion in France and clings to a confused hope of a European identity. Jomo, the Nigerian, fights for the survival and durability of his people in the Niger Delta and is ready to die to defend his ideas. These two young people who are sacrificed and smashed together will, against all odds, meet and their destinies will merge to continue across borders, bodies, life and death.... Produced by Lionel Massol and Pauline Seigland for the Brittany company Films Grand Huit, DISCO BOY is co-produced in France by Division (Arno Moria) and Stromboli Films (Juliette Sol), in Belgium by Panache Productions (André Logie), in Italy by Dugong Films (Giulia Achili and EAVE graduate Marco Alessi) and in Poland by Donten & Lacroix (Maria Blicharska).

  • THE CHAPEL by Dominique Deruddere, producer: TTB graduate Valerie Bournonville has started shooting. The film follows the journey of Lia Rogiers, a young virtuoso pianist who takes part in the famous Queen Elisabeth Competition. During this real event, the 12 finalists are isolated in "the chapel" for seven days. All contact with the outside world is forbidden. Lia suffers from the stress of the competition and the isolation. Bad memories from the past resurface... Obviously, the world of classical music, and more particularly these international competitions, and the very particular setting of the Queen Elisabeth meeting, offer an ideal arena for a psychological drama under high tension. THE CHAPEL is produced by Bart Van Langendonck for Savage Film, and co-produced in Wallonia by Tarantula, with the support of the Vlaams Audiovisueel Fonds (VAF), screen.brussels, the Centre du Cinéma et de l’Audiovisuel de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, Streamz, Telenet and the Tax Shelter.

  • MATAR CANGREJOS by Omar Al Abdul Razzak, producer: PUENTES graduate Mayi Gutierrez is shooting. The action of the movie, based on a screenplay written by the director himself, unfolds on Tenerife (Canary Islands) in the 1990s. Dolphins, parrots, prickly pears and two siblings. Eight-year-old Rayco is fascinated by Michael Jackson’s arrival on the island, and by a hermit who lives in a cave by the sea. Meanwhile, 13-year-old Paula is grappling with the imminent eviction of her grandmother, who drifts from one abandoned hotel on the coast to the next. “I grew up on the Canary Islands: I arrived when I was barely two months old, and I lived there until I turned 18 and went to Madrid to study film,” remarks the director. “I never thought about going back… until my son was born. Twenty years later, I feel like I have to go back to Tenerife to tell unknown stories about the place I come from, my homeland and my family.” At the project stage, the movie took part in the SGAE Foundation’s Script Creation Lab, the second edition of La Incubadora/The Screen run by ECAM and the first edition of the Match! Me programme run by the Locarno Film Festival. MATAR CANGREJOS is a production by Tourmalet Films (Spain) in co-production with IJswater Films (Netherlands). It has secured funding from the ICAA, the Canary Islands government, TEA Island Council of Tenerife and Creative Europe – MEDIA. It also sees the involvement of Televisión Canaria.

THE VANISHED PRESIDENT by Jean-Marc Peyrefitte in post-production now

  • THE VANISHED PRESIDENT by Jean-Marc Peyrefitte, producer: EAVE graduate Benoît Roland is in post-production. The story revolves around a given question: "How could we have elected a man who wanted to abolish the death penalty, give women the right to vote and allow the colonies their independence?" A question, which was posed by Georges Clemenceau, who has just lost the presidential election, against all odds, to an unknown opponent by the name of Paul Deschanel. This new president throws himself into his brand-new role, and even though the task is huge and the pressure intolerable, his first steps make quite an impression. But the cynicism of the political world, the game played by the institutions and the brutality of media campaigns soon catch up with and derail him. And then, one evening, he falls out of a train and vanishes into thin air…. THE VANISHED PRESIDENT is produced by TTB graduate Jérémy Zelnik and Tancrède Ramonet on behalf of Dibona Films and by Camille Gentet for Pan Européenne Production, in co-production with Orange Studio, Tandem, Belgian firm Wrong Men North (Benoît Roland), Temps Noir and Flamme Film. Pre-purchased by Canal+, Ciné+, BeTV/VOO and Proximus, the feature film also enjoys the support of the Île-de-France and Pays de la Loire regions, and of the SOFICA companies Cinémage, Cinéventure, Cofimage, La Banque Postale Image, Palatine and Indéfilms. Having wrapped on 31 July, the film shoot unfolded in settings including the Élysée Palace, the Quai d'Orsay, the Palace of Versailles’ Conference Room, the Château de Champs-sur Marne and Clemenceau’s home in Saint-Vincent-sur-Jard within the Vendée region.

The film tells the story of Asja, a 40-year-old single woman living in Sarajevo, who meets Zoran, a 43-year-old banker, at a dating event. Zoran is not there looking for love though, but for forgiveness. During the war in 1993 he was shooting at the city from the opposite side, and he wants to meet his first victim. Now, they both have to relive the pain in their search for forgiveness. The film poses many existential questions: How to live with war? Is there life after war? Is there love after war? And when does war stop? Labina Mitevska of Sisters and Brother Mitevski (North Macedonia) is producing in coproduction with Vertigo (Slovenia), Terminal 3 (Croatia), Entre Chien et Loup (EAVE graduate Sébastien Delloye, Belgium), SCCA/Pro.ba (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and Beofilm (EAVE participant Maria Møller Christoffersen, Denmark).

EAVE Yoga Corner

Dear EAVE Yogis!

EAVE Yoga is your peaceful place where you can stretch your body in a gentle way and practice pranayama in a small group of yogis.

In YOGA, the physical body, the sense organs, the emotions, mind and consciousness are trained slowly and gradually.

Pranayama is the science of BREATH. By focusing the mind on breath, blockages in the body’s channels are unlocked, allowing energy to flow freely and connect with the life force.

"No better way to start your day! If you start your day with Tanika's yoga - you know it will be a good day. Energizing, opening and balancing."

Lise Lense-Møller, EAVE Head of Studies

EAVE Marketing Workshop kicks off next Tuesday, October 5!

The 2021 edition of EAVE Marketing Workshop takes place from October 5-10 at Hotel Légère in Luxembourg. The event will be held on site, gathering 29 film professionals from 17 countries to discuss marketing strategies in the film industry.

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

“The workshop helped me to put my daily job into perspective and gave me food for thoughts, good practices for future improvements, developments and experiments. It was also great to connect with people with very different backgrounds in the industry."

Mathilde Martin, Charades, France

Now, more than ever, digital strategies are gaining importance in the audiovisual market. Although digital, innovation and new windows have always been crucial at this workshop, in 2021 we are taking it a step further: we will involve more digital-oriented sessions, more online and hybrid case studies and a handful of forward-thinking social media examples that are linked to the new digital era.

Participants will be working alongside cutting-edge marketing specialists, such as Alya Belgaroui-Degalet (Wild Bunch, FR – international sales marketing) and Sarah Calderon (The Film Agency, ES – marketing consultant) as Heads of Studies and six contributors and contributors like Michael Arnon (Wolf Consultants – PR, DE), Wendy Mitchell (Screen International, UK) and Boris Pugnet (Tiramisu, FR).

Other contributors include:

Guillaume Boscher (Facebook France, Entertainment & Media), whose plenary will focus on social media marketing tools on facebook and Instagram.

Elena Neira (La Otra Pantalla - Professor, lecturer and researcher), and Matt Ross (Digital i - SoDA Product Manager), who will explore the intricacies of VOD and algorithm-driven marketing and streaming wars.

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

The EAVE family mourns the passing of producer Ursula Wolschlager.

Ursula was a beloved member of the EAVE community, graduate of the EAVE Producers Workshop, B’EST and EAVE+ as well as former EAVE National Coordinator for Austria.

An active defender of diversity, inclusion and intercultural dialogue, Ursula has worked in a variety of positions involving screenplay and film production with numerous writers and directors including Michael Glawogger, Tony Pemberton, Kirill Serebrennikov, Nathalie Borgers, Christian Frosch, Bakhtiar Khodoynazarov, Nina Proll, and Barbara Albert.

Ursula has also taught dramaturgy, and has run the script development programme DIVERSE STORIES, nominated for the Austrian National Award for Adult Education and mentioned in the UNESCO World Report Investing in Cultural Diversity and Intercultural Dialogue.
In 2015 she established ProPro – The Producers Programme for Women, a residential workshop in Vienna that aims to support female film producers in order to remedy the gender misbalance in the Austrian film production landscape.

Ursula has been a member of several juries, including the Project Commission of the Austrian Film Institute. She was also a member of the European Film Academy, board member of both the Austrian Film Academy and FC Gloria (WIFT Austria).

Her creative and international mind and her kindness will be greatly missed.

Our thoughts and love are with her family, friends and all those who have admired her.
