  • THE GENDARME by Dan Chisu, producer: EAVE graduate Anamaria Antoci is in pre-production. Written by Chisu, the screenplay’s starting point is a real event: in 2013, a screening of the LGBT film The Kids Are All Right in an arthouse cinema in Bucharest was interrupted by representatives of a far-right movement, who started protesting against the film's message. THE GENDARME shows what happened from the point of view of the leader of the team sent by the local Gendarmerie to make sure the disturbance didn’t escalate. The film is supported by the Romanian National Film Center. Producer Antoci is already negotiating a co-production deal with a Dutch production company. She also has her eye on France and Romania’s neighbouring countries as possible co-production partners. Shooting is planned for next summer.


  • Ties That Bind project MOTEL ACACIA by Bradlew Liew, producer: Ties That Bind graduate Bianca Balbuena is in the final stages of development. Taipei-based film and TV powerhouse MandarinVision has boarded Bradley Liew’s upcoming horror picture, set against a brothel with a sinister mission to bump off migrant workers.


  • EAVE project THE ALLEYS, produced by EAVE graduate Rula Nasser is in development. The project is in the stadium of script writing and the producer is expecting to reach the next step until the end of the year.


  • EAVE project CITIZEN SAINT, produced and directed by EAVE graduate Tiantin Karjushvili is currently in its final financing process. Kajrishvili and Gia Alavidze wrote the script about a statue of a saint, that comes to life. None of the officials know what to do with him. The Saint is accused of damaging artwork, ruining the city’s only tourist attraction and being a swindler. Mary, an employee in the city’s local museum, wants to protect him, but her efforts are in vain. Gemini and Artizm are producing in co-production with Sweden’s Momento Film and Germany's UnaFilm. Producers are the EAVE graduates Tinatin Kajrishvili, Lasha Khalvashi, David Herdies and Titus Kreyenberg. The project is supported by the Georgian National Film Center, Eurimages and Baltic Event. The project participated in the MFI Script2Film 2016, La Fabrique di Cinema Du Monde 2016 and Producers on The Move 2017.
