Obituary Ursula Wolschlager

press release

The EAVE family mourns the passing of producer Ursula Wolschlager.

Ursula was a beloved member of the EAVE community, graduate of the EAVE Producers Workshop, B’EST and EAVE+ as well as former EAVE National Coordinator for Austria.

An active defender of diversity, inclusion and intercultural dialogue, Ursula has worked in a variety of positions involving screenplay and film production with numerous writers and directors including Michael Glawogger, Tony Pemberton, Kirill Serebrennikov, Nathalie Borgers, Christian Frosch, Bakhtiar Khodoynazarov, Nina Proll, and Barbara Albert.

Ursula has also taught dramaturgy, and has run the script development programme DIVERSE STORIES, nominated for the Austrian National Award for Adult Education and mentioned in the UNESCO World Report Investing in Cultural Diversity and Intercultural Dialogue.
In 2015 she established ProPro – The Producers Programme for Women, a residential workshop in Vienna that aims to support female film producers in order to remedy the gender misbalance in the Austrian film production landscape.

Ursula has been a member of several juries, including the Project Commission of the Austrian Film Institute. She was also a member of the European Film Academy, board member of both the Austrian Film Academy and FC Gloria (WIFT Austria).

Her creative and international mind and her kindness will be greatly missed.

Our thoughts and love are with her family, friends and all those who have admired her.
