Czech Film Fund

  • EAVE project GEORGIUS THE CHOSEN ONE by Tomasz Mielnik, producer: EAVE graduate Mikulas Novotny is supported by the Czech Film Fund. The medieval story of a sibling love offspring who experiences all sorts of inconveniences just like the sufferers (or heroes) of old myths and stories.
  • EAVE project ORDINARY FAILURES by Cristina Grosan, producers: EAVE graduates Marek Novak and Marica Stocchi receives development support. The film tells a story of three women of different generations, connected by an apocalyptic dream. This dystopian psychological drama is a co-production between Czech Republic (Xova Film), Italy (Rosamont) and Hungary (Laokoon Filmgroup).


LES HERBES SÈCHES by Nuri Bilge Ceylan, co-producer: EAVE graduate Jonas Dornbach is in development. The film, set to be shot next year in Turkey will centre on Samet, a young and single school teacher finishing his mandatory service in an isolated village in Anatolia, while hoping to be assigned in Istanbul. When he does not get the transfer he was hoping for, he loses all hope of ever escaping the grim life he seems bogged down in. But his encounter with Nuray, herself a teacher like him, might allow him to overcome his dark thoughts and worries… Production is handled by Memento Films Production (France), NBC Film (Turkey), Komplizen (Germany) and ATMO (Sweden).
