EAVE June News 2024


Call for Applications: EAVE PRODUCERS WORKSHOP 2025 - deadline August 19, 2024

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 56 participants are selected from most of the EU countries and beyond and take part in three one-week long workshops.

Please check the section “Who should apply” for more detailed information.

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 some 50 Future Partners (commissioning editors, national and regional media funds, financiers, 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 Key Industry Players. 

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

Timeline

The interviews with a pre-selection of candidates will take place in autumn 2024 and the selection will be announced in December 2024. The 3 workshops take place in March 7-14, 2025 in Luxembourg (LU), June 2025 (location and exact dates TBC), and October 2025 exact dates TBC) in Thessaloniki (GR).

  • THE REVOLUTION ACCORDING TO KAMO by Kornel Mundruczo, co-producers: EAVE graduate and Hungarian National Coordinator Viktoria Petranyi, EAVE graduates Jonas Dornbach, Beata Rzezniczek is in pre-production. Shooting for the Georgian-language film is due to start in 2025. The film’s story spans 30 years, from 1891-1922, and paints the portrait of the birth of the world’s most murderous dictator through the eyes of his best friend, ally, devoted disciple and henchman. The two grew up together in the small town of Gori, close to Tblisi – Stalin, or Soso as he was then known, in extreme poverty, and Kamo as part of a wealthy merchant family. Although Soso leaves Gori to attend a seminary, the two are reunited in their late teens in Tiflis (modern-day Tbilisi), where the charismatic Soso has become an agitator and leader in the new revolutionary movement to bring down the monarchy. Kamo is dragged alongside Soso into a world of gangland violence, murder and social upheaval. “It’s an epic movie about history, but it also sits firmly in the gangster-movie genre,” said Mundruczo. “It’s less about a man being born evil, but about the mechanics of power and how one man rises to the top. But it’s also about a passionate friendship between these two men who knew each other since they were boys.” THE REVOLUTION ACCORDING TO KAMO will be produced by UK outfit Good Chaos and France’s Hype Studios together with MK Productions (France), Komplizen Film (Germany), Madants (Poland), Proton Cinema (Hungary) and Takes Film (Georgia).

In this emergency, before their mother passes away, Lucile and Paul will have to find their way to forgiveness and save a lot more than just the furniture. The film is produced by EAVE graduate Julie Esparbes for Hélicotronc and co-produced by Swiss Alva Films and French Tripode Productions. It has received support from the Fédération Wallonie -Bruxelles (light productions fund), Be TV, the RTBF, Proximus, the Tax Shelter via Shelter Prod, the Loterie nationale, the Région Occitanie and the Office Fédéral de la Culture suisse.

Continuation of the successful cooperation between EAVE, Netflix and Ukrainian Film Academy to support Ukrainian Filmmakers

Netflix together with a network of institutions continue their partnership supporting Ukrainian filmmakers and the country’s film industry affected by the war. The Ukrainian Film Academy has announced 25 film projects that will receive $10,000 grants each supporting script development, plus tailor-made consultations and mentoring by EAVE with leading industry experts.

For the second time in collaboration with EAVE, the main goal of the Grant Program: "Script Development and Exclusive Online Sessions with EAVE Experts" is to support Ukrainian creators in Ukraine and around the world who have been affected or displaced by the war, aiming to continue and develop their work.

Original feature films with a duration of 70 minutes or more that were in the development stage at the time of application were accepted.

Due to the high level of projects submitted, Netflix has increased the number of grants awarded to 25, each going to a two-person scriptwriter / producer team working on a feature film project.

“Overall, I consider this initiative extremely useful and one of the best examples of practical help to Ukrainian filmmakers during the war. Thank you once again!”

After the successful 2023 edition, TIES THAT BIND and Asia TV Forum & Market (ATF) are joining forces yet again for the ATF x TTB Animation Lab & Pitch 2024. This initiative will bring together producers with projects from Asia and Europe with the potential and desire to explore new financing and co-production opportunities, new markets, and new audiences in both continents.

In addition, a limited number of partial travel & accommodation scholarships are available in priority for applicants from countries/regions not providing any scholarships for this kind of activities or participants in any other proven situation of need for financial support.
Selected projects will receive up to 2 all-access passes to ATF.

The selection will be made by a selection committee and will be announced by late September.

Selection procedure

We aim to be transparent and unbiased in our selection process. EAVE TTB is keen to ensure the widest possible participation in our programmes and has a strong focus on securing as diverse a selection of people and projects as possible.  Diversity is viewed as a primary focus, not only with regards to nationality, geographic spread, race, age and gender, but also type of projects, experience and background. Our experience is, that the richer the pool of people and projects, the richer the overall experience of the participants and the more dynamic the group, the mutual learning exchange and inspiration.

ATFxTTB Animation Lab & Pitch is open to applicants from all over Europe*, i.e. all countries eligible for Creative Europe - MEDIA support and from the APAC countries in Asia*.
The selected participants need to be animation producers in their respective countries and continents, possessing a solid understanding of development, funding and distribution systems within their own territories and regions. They should aspire to work on an international scale and to create long-term relationships between Europe and Asia.

Producers are required to submit a project for consideration. Projects should be short film, feature films or TV formats (series or mini-series) at development or financing stage.

The selection is based on the assessment of the applicants’ and their company’s track record and the level of professional background and suitability of the project for the lab.

The selection committee also takes into account the following two criteria:

  • the extent to which the applicant will benefit from her/his experience at ATFxTTB;
  • the extent to which the applicant’s presence will be beneficial to the rest of the group/the other participants.

The selection committee is made by approx. 3 professionals coming from Europe and 3 professionals coming from Asia. The selection is made in cooperation with CEE Animation Workshop.

The selection process will be carried out in 2 phases:

  • In the first phase, the selection committee will evaluate each of the applications received. They will separately assess their evaluation according to structured criteria in order to create a shortlist of projects.
  • The final selection is conducted by the ATFxTTB Coordinator and the ATFxTTB Curator: in a joint call they will review and discuss the shortlisted projects to shape the final group of participants.

The final selection decision is commented upon and approved by the EAVE and FVG board.

The final decision will be taken 1 month before the first online session, after which participants will be notified and required to confirm their attendance within one week.

Professional Development Opportunity for African Film Producers at the 4th Creative Producers’ Indaba

The Creative Producers’ Indaba (CPI), the highly successful film-producer professional development fellowship hosted by the Cape Town-based Realness Institute, in collaboration with EAVE, the International Film Festival Rotterdam's IFFR Pro, and the Marrakech International Film Festival's Atlas Workshops, has announced that submissions are now open for its fourth edition.

The CPI comprises three workshop modules over six months, combining in-person and online sessions. These workshops aim to equip participants with practical tools to enhance their film production management skills, develop essential leadership skills, and gain the capacity to operate sustainable businesses at a strategic level.

The fellowship is led by programme director Elias Ribeiro and group leaders Diana Elbaum, and Mehret Mandefro in addition to story expert Tracey Lee Rainers and marketing expert Constanza Arena. The selected cohort will have the opportunity to engage with seasoned professionals—including active, successful producers, lawyers, finance experts, and sales experts who will share their diverse perspectives and professional experiences through case studies, roundtables, and work sessions.

Forty-five producers from 18 countries have been through the fellowship with many success stories since its inception in 2021. Producer Bartolomeu Luiz (Brazil) who attended last year’s CPI said that his participation yielded concrete results, including securing a co-production with a Canadian partner he met in Rotterdam, with further funding prospects awaiting announcements in Brazil. “The workshop has truly been a catalyst for profound personal and professional growth.”

Fifteen film professionals from Africa and international producers interested in producing in Africa will be selected: five creative producers from Africa with audiovisual projects in development; five international producers without projects and five African film professionals from international sales, funding, festivals, markets, or an institutional background interested in working across continents.

“Recognizing the vital role of the film industry in social and macroeconomic development, we aim to develop these producers into key influencers who can shape favourable policies and financial infrastructures essential for the growth of Africa’s film industry,” says Mehret Mandefro, Director of Development and Partnership at the Realness Institute. “We also aim to foster collaboration between Europe, America, Asia, and Africa, facilitating the exchange of ideas and promoting international co-productions.”

"It fills me with so much joy to see Creative Producers’ Indaba go into its 4th edition and that EAVE was able to inspire the programme and contribute since its inception,” says Kristina Trapp, CEO at EAVE. “Seeing the latest success stories of the Indaba alumni at A-list festivals and in the creation of networks on the continent is a strong sign of the impact of the programme.”

“We remain motivated and enthusiastic about being part of Indaba once more,” says Facundo Lema , Talent Manager IFFR PRO. “This programme not only enhances producers' skills and solidifies their creative methods for projects and sustainable careers, but it also fosters deep connections, which benefit both individual paths and the industry as a whole.”

"We are part of one and the same community of cinema storytellers,” says Hédi Zardi, Head of the Atlas Workshops. “It is always important and exciting to build bridges within the  continent to enable people to have dialogue, get to know each other, share expertise and think of  future creations together. We are delighted to develop this collaboration and empower talents.”

Brazilian foundation Projecto Paradiso, Canada Media Fund, Swiss Audiovisual Training Organisation Focal and the Austrian Film Fund each have one spot specifically reserved for a producer in their country wanting to co-produce an African project, further enhancing cross-cultural collaboration.

Creative Producers Indaba participants will attend the Atlas Ateliers during the Marrakech International Film Festival in November 2024 and sessions at the International Film Festival Rotterdam in January 2025 followed by online sessions to close the circle of their projects.

Mehret Mandefro and Diana Elbaum, will provide the cohort with invaluable mentorship and guidance through the process. Guest speakers who will generously share their expertise, insights, and guidance include Constanza Arena  founder of the talent promotion and representation agency LA LUZ (Chile),  Sata Cissokho, who is charge of acquisitions at the Paris-based sales agent Memento International, Tracey Lee Rainers an international story practitioner and independent creative executive who spearheads story development company Story Oasis (SA) and Isioma Idigbe who heads media and entertainment practice group at PUNUKA Attorneys & Solicitors (Nigeria).

Applicants must meet specific requirements, such as having produced at least one feature fiction, series, or documentary film, or a minimum of two short films as a lead or co-producer. Film professionals should possess a minimum of four years of professional experience.

The deadline for submissions is 15 July at 12:00 Central African Time.

Best Practices for Equitable Co-Productions ⁠- EAVE Think Tank report and panel discussion

Dear EAVE Producers,

We are thrilled to share our recently released report, "Inclusive Co-Productions" unveiled at the Cannes' Marché du Film, as part of its impACT and Co-Production Day programs. Based on recommendations from the January 2024 EAVE Impact Think Tank at When East Meets West, this report equips industry professionals with valuable insights for fostering inclusive collaborations in the screen sector. 

Our report is divided into two main sections:

  • Actionable Strategies for Producers: This section offers practical recommendations tailored to producers, providing strategies for navigating collaborations with integrity and innovation.
  • Recommendations for Decision Makers: Here, you will find recommendations for funding agencies and film institutions to promote inclusivity in co-productions. From evaluating current policies to applying critical thinking to decision-making, these strategies aim to future-proof our industries and foster more collaborative frameworks.

In a rapidly evolving industry, understanding and implementing inclusive co-production practices are more relevant than ever to offer stability and growth in our sector. We believe this report will provide you with the necessary tools and knowledge to apply to your own practices.

"Right now, we’re seeing a global demand for more diverse stories on film. When we work to bring these stories to the screen, it’s crucial that we don’t end up colonizing the stories, or the talents and cultures they belong to. With the report on inclusive co-production, we have looked for ways to empower rather than exploit new voices. If we can make diverse storytelling sustainable, we will all benefit from it not only now, but also in the long run."

Emile Hertling Péronard, Ánorâk Film Denmark

You can watch the panel discussion about the report here, which was recorded during the Marché du Film, impACT x Co-Production Day:

We look forward to hearing your feedback and learning how this report influences your approach to co-productions.

Thanks to the support of the Marché du Film and When East Meets West:
