Extended deadline for applications: EAVE Producers Workshop 2024

press release

EAVE, European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs, is one of the leading training and development providers for producers in Europe, renowned for its EAVE Producers Workshop.

The deadline to apply for the next edition has been extended until August 28th!

  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 fifty 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 2023 and the selection will be announced in December 2023. The 3 workshops take place in March 7-14, 2024 in Luxembourg (LU), June 2024 (exact dates and place TBC), and October 14-21, 2024 in Karlskrona (SE).

  EAVE MARKETING BUDDIES PROGRAMME

The EAVE Marketing Workshop participants are joined every year by selected graduates of the renowned EAVE Producers Workshop, who have trained over one year as specialized marketing professionals.

EAVE is a residential workshop programme with a strong focus on network building. Should local travel restrictions occur, alternative digital solutions will be proposed.
