  • I ACCIDENTALLY WROTE A BOOK by Tamas Yvan Topolànszky, producer: EAVE graduate Claudia Sümeghy is supported by the National Film Institute of Hungary. For the Hungarian-Dutch co-production the Netherlands Filmfonds previously approved a minority co-production funding as well as funding from the Netherlands Film Production Incentive. The family film presents the miracle of writing with unique visual elements through the personal story of a 12-year-old girl. The story highlights how writing can help through even in the most difficult times. While the protagonist learns to write, she discovers her family’s story, gets to know herself better and processes the trauma of losing her mother. The screenplay of the film written by Nora Lakos was the first Hungarian script to be invited to one of the most important European screenplay development workshops, the Cinekid Script LAB and then won the EURIMAGES Co-Development Award as the best film plan of 2021 at Cinekid Co-production Market. I ACCIDENTALLY WROTE A BOOK is produced by the Budapest based production company Juno 11 Pictures owned by Claudia Sümeghy and co-produced by EAVE graduate Joram Willink and Maaike Neve from Dutch production house BIND. The film is also co-produced by Nóra Lakos with Squirrel Film. Shooting starts in the first half of 2023.

Based on the award-winning novel by Damir Karakas, which was adapted for the screen by Jelena Palijan, the film follows the life of Mijo and his family in a poor Croatian village, during the turbulent years of World War II. The non-linear and elliptical plot gradually forms a clear picture that testifies to the eternal cycle of history and the impossibility of a real change in the Balkans. The Croatian Audiovisual Centre supported the film in 2020, with additional financing being secured through the MEDIA desk of Creative Europe. In 2021, the film was further developed through the Ekran+ workshop organised by Polish Studio Wajda.

It’s official: the EAVE 2023 selection!

We are delighted to close the year announcing the selection for the 2023 EAVE Producers Workshop!

EAVE Producers Workshop is funded by the European Union and supported by Film Fund Luxembourg.

56 producers and professionals from 36 countries (see the complete list below) have been selected out of 267 applications from 51 countries.

We are particularly grateful for the generous support of our 2023 scholarship partners:

  • The French CNC supports the participation of 3 international producers at the EAVE Producers Workshop, namely Milos Ivanovic (Serbia), Carol Kioko (Kenya) and DFI Producers Lab graduate Yemoh Ike (Ghana).
  • Thanks to German regional fund MDM, Ukrainian producers Darya Bassel and Olga Zhurzhenko and Enea Gramo from Albania will develop their skills at the EAVE 2023 course.
  • PACT is offering a scholarship to one UK producer (Sinead Kirwan) in the name and memory of EAVE expert Dorothy Viljoen.
  • Our partnerships with Telefilm Canada and SODEC made it possible for two producers from Canada (Julie Groleau and Sahar Yousefi) to attend the programme.
  • The support of Projeto Paradiso was granted to Julia Alves from Brazil.
  • The Italian regional fund Friuli Venezia Giulia supports a participant selected at When East Meets West: Aneta Zagorska from Poland.
  • Our partnership with TRT - Turkish Radio and Television Corporation has made it possible for Ipek Erden to participate in 2023.
  • Thanks to our collaboration with Fonds Jeune Création Francophone, Yanis Gaye from Senegal will participate with financial support from Film Fund Luxembourg.

In addition to those, a number of scholarships have been allocated by EAVE, including two EAVE diversity scholarships allocated to European participants who identify as black, indigenous or people of colour. Other EAVE scholarships were given in priority to participants from European low production capacity countries.

We would like to thank our partners, decision makers, experts, pedagogical team, and all the members of the EAVE family for their precious support and wish you all a peaceful holiday season and a good start into the New Year. 

Happy Holidays!

SUNDANCE 2023: 16 films produced by EAVE alumni!

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

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

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

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

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

Congratulations to all!
