press release

The celebrations will take place in the framework of the third and final part of the prestigious EAVE Producers’ Workshop, in Galicia (Spain) from October 22 to 29.

Since its creation in 1988, EAVE has become the talent power house in Europe. The organization is an essential stepping stone for producers and industry professionals all over the world looking to advance their careers and get the necessary training to progress in the cinema industry.

EAVE´s innovativeness and relevance has been reflected not only in its international scope – with its current presence in Europe, the Middle East, Russia and the GIS states, Latin America, Asia, and lately Africa, thanks to training initiatives such as EAVE Puentes and Ties That Bind – but also in the quality of the work produced by EAVE producers. A vast number of films produced by EAVE graduates have achieved worldwide recognition. Among them remarkable examples such as Toni Erdmann, Room, A Fantastic Woman, Birds of Passage and Rojo.

In these 30 years, EAVE has trained almost 2400 film professionals around the world with an almost 50/50 gender ratio. Throughout the years, the workshops have taken place in almost 90 different countries and involved over 600 experts from around the world.

In the last decade alone, 385 projects have been developed at EAVE´s Producers Workshop, with over 100 projects already produced and distributed worldwide. Festivals have also recognized EAVE´s producers by including their projects in Top Festival line-ups. Specifically, EAVE producers have achieved 2247 festivals selections in Berlin, Toronto, Cannes, and Karlovy Vary… Almost 500 of them have won prizes in the most important festivals around the world. In terms of awards, EAVE film projects have been nominated 23 times for the Oscars, where they have obtained 6 Statuettes, plus 16 Golden Globe nominations, and won 3 times.

With such impressive numbers, EAVE is kicking off their 30 Years celebration campaign, in the context of the 3rd edition of this year´s EAVE Producers’ Workshop taking place from October 22 to 29 in the northern Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela, where the training programme will also be celebrating its 30th anniversary.


The EAVE PRODUCER´S WORKSHOP is organized in partnership with AGADIC XUNTA DE GALICIA.

70 leading international decision-makers will gather in Santiago de Compostela to meet the 50 top producing talents from 36 countries and discover the 25 fiction and documentary projects developed during this year’s EAVE Producers’ Workshop.

The week will feature special events around outreach, producer-director relationship, TV series, the financial implications of the digital shift and innovative ways of developing, financing, producing, promoting and distributing audiovisual content.  In addition, two plenary sessions will be live-streamed on EAVE`s Facebook page from the stunning Ciudad de la Cultura venue in Galicia.

Beyond Movies – New Media Story Telling offers a look towards the future of storytelling, financing, distributing and the marketing of audiovisual content. Various speakers will explore the opportunities afforded by the digital shift, in an encounter moderated by Domenico La Porta (BE): Lorenzo Benedetti (Studio Bagel, Canal+, FR), Karim Ben Khelifa (“THE ENEMY”, DE) and Arnaud Colinart (ATLAS V, FR). Live-streamed on 23 October 15.30 to 17.30
