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

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

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

FÜR IRENA by Giedre Zickyte is now in production

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This year, APM will hold physical event with 29 official projects – [See Full List of APM 2022].

Deadline extension: TIES THAT BIND 2022

The call for applications for the 14th edition of TIES THAT BIND Asia - Europe Co-Production Workshop in 2022 is now EXTENDED until August 26th, 2022.

We are very proud to announce a new partnership with TAICCA - Taiwan Creative Content Agency and to unveil the new dates and location of the Asian session of the workshop!!

TAICCA: “After the very fruitful TIES THAT BIND on Demand Workshop in 2021, TAICCA is very glad to extend and deepen our partnership with TIES THAT BIND in 2022. We hope by this partnership, TAICCA and TTB will be able to  build stronger connections between Europe and Asia”.

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

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

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

What is TTB?

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

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

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

EAVE, European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs, is one of the leading training and development providers for producers in Europe, renowned for its EAVE Producers Workshop.

  Who is it for?

EAVE is aimed at producers (fiction, documentary and TV series), who are already working in the film and television industries who wish to expand their operation internationally by increasing their knowledge of producing and co-producing in Europe and by building up a pan European professional network. We also welcome applications from associated branches of the industry – e.g. commissioning, funding, legal and finance, festivals & markets, media administration. Each year fifty participants are selected from most of the EU countries and beyond and take part in three one-week long workshops.

  How does it work?

Half the participants attend the course with projects and it is an excellent means of development through intense focus on the project with colleagues and experts throughout the year. The other half come to EAVE in order to focus on developing their companies or careers. Most participants attending with a project also bring their writer for the first two weeks which enables producer and writer to benefit together from one-to-one sessions with script experts.

During the first two workshops, participants work within groups led by experienced producers and with several experts on script analysis, development and production financing, legal aspects of co-production, marketing, pitching, packaging and more. In the third workshop 60-70 Decision Makers (commissioning editors, national and regional media funds, sales agents, etc.) join the participants to discuss the projects, companies and careers of the participants, a process which offers unusual access to Europe's Decision Makers. 

EAVE graduates join a unique network of active European producers which forms one of the backbones of the industry. Furthermore, EAVE participants and members benefit from our partnerships with the leading European film festivals and markets where EAVE facilitates graduate participation.

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