press release

Apply now to EAVE Marketing Workshop 2021!

The call for applications for the next edition of EAVE Marketing Workshop is now open until July 7, 2021

The 2021 edition will take place in Luxembourg, from October 5-10, 2021.

 

EAVE offers a tailor-made workshop embracing the importance of marketing techniques and Audience-centered strategies. Co-Heads of Studies Alya Belgaroui-Degalet and Sarah Calderón have designed a unique programme where participants are collectively working on the group’s projects more than half of the time. Inspired by the EAVE sharing pedagogy, Design Thinking techniques and visual, tangible and ludic exercises, the sessions are equally creative, innovative and strategic. The result is a hands-on approach with concrete tools that anyone can apply immediately within their own team in today’s and tomorrow’s industry. This casual way of learning facilitates network and community building across countries from all over the world.

 

 An important place for digital marketing

Now, more than ever, digital strategies are gaining importance in the audiovisual market. Although digital, innovation and new windows have always been crucial at this workshop, in 2021 we are taking it a step further: we will involve more digital-oriented sessions, more online and hybrid case studies and a handful of forward-thinking social media examples that are linked to the new digital era.

 

The 30 carefully selected participants will have a full overview of the actual marketing trades in terms of targeting and positioning from international sales strategies to national release and also generating awareness all across the release process including festivals.

“I have already seen that my confidence in sharing my ideas with my team when we work on marketing materials on new titles is much stronger. I also have now the confidence to search for inspiration and benchmark from other films.”

Antigoni Papantoni, Heretic Outreach, Greece

 

Participants can apply without a project, or with a project in advanced development, pre-production and post-production to work with cutting-edge marketing specialists, such as Alya Belgaroui-Degalet (Wild Bunch – international sales marketing) and Sarah Calderon (The Film Agency – marketing consultant) as Heads of Studies and contributors like Michael Arnon (Wolf Consultants – PR), Boris Pugnet (former Head of Marketing at Le Pacte / Editor at Turn Right), Wendy Mitchell (Screen International, UK) and others to come. These cherry-picked experts go beyond their own field of marketing and get involved in other experts sessions sharing their complementary experience.

 

“The workshop helped me to put my daily job into perspective and gave me food for thoughts, good practices for future improvements, developments and experiments. It was also great to connect with people with very different backgrounds in the industry."

Mathilde Martin, Charades, France

The workshop is targeted at producers as well as professionals working in sales, distribution and marketing departments. We also welcome applications from related areas of the industry (e.g. regional and national funding institutions, film festivals and markets etc.) and from relevant trainers and consultants who want to innovate in their marketing techniques. The two groups that will be working during the entire workshop are balanced in terms of all the above-mentioned trades of the film industry in order to nourish as much as possible the different perspectives.
