press release

In partnership with Film Fund Luxembourg, we were thrilled to welcome for the first time this year the selected 55 producers and professionals from 35 countries to develop the 31 selected documentary, feature film and series projects, as well as their careers, company structures and entrepreneurial skills at the EAVE Producers Workshop 2022.

The first of 3 residential workshops took place from March 4–11 at the Légère Premium Hotel Luxembourg. Workshop 2 will take place in Pärnu (Estonia) in June and Workshop 3 in Barcelona (Spain) in October.

Some highlights of this week:

  • Introduction to Series Development and Production: EAVE graduate Yvonne Donohoe (Blinder Films, IE) shared her experience and insight on what it takes to move into producing series.
  • Content and Strategy – the Producer’s Role from Development to Audience: EAVE Head of Studies Lise Lense-Møller (Magic Hour Films, DK) devoted her plenary session to the specific questions and challenges related to the role of a producer from early development until the release of the film.
  • Become a PMD/marketing expert: Sarah Calderon (The Film Agency, ES) runs a special ‘marketing incubator programme’ in the groups and over the whole year, offering an intense PMD marketing training in cooperation with the EAVE Marketing Workshop.

Various plenary sessions around script development strategies, legal aspects of development, company planning, film finance, documentary film production, were part of the schedule.

The participants started their EAVE journey under the guidance of EAVE Head of Studies Lise Lense-Møller (Magic Hour Films, DK), the four group leaders, Ankica Jurić Tilić (Kinorama, HR), Michael Kitzberger (Nikolaus Geyrhalter Filmproduktion GmbH, AT), Riina Sildos (Amrion, EE) and Jani Thiltges (Samsa Film, LU); the script consultants Jacques Akchoti (FR), Martin Daniel (USA), Clare Downs (UK), TV series consultant Ossi Nishri (IL), and documentary expert Sylvia Stevens (Faction Films, UK).

They were joined by the EAVE specialized experts - for Finance and Company Planning: Linda Beath (Ideal Filmworks, IT), Marketing: Sarah Calderon (The Film Agency, ES), Pitching: Sibylle Kurz (DE) and Legal Issues: Katrine Schlüter Schierbeck (The Law Factory, DK), who shared their expertise in plenary and group work sessions as well as individual meetings.

 
All plenary sessions were open for interested local professionals.
