  • LA NUIT DU 12 by Dominik Moll, co-producer: EAVE graduate Henri-Jacques Bronckart is shooting. The script begins in the corridors of the criminal police, where it is said that every investigator has a crime that haunts them. There comes a day when he is assigned a case that hurts him more than the others, without him necessarily knowing why. It begins to spin in his head to the point of obsession. For Yohan, who has just been named squad leader in the Criminal Brigade in Grenoble, that case is the murder of Clara. For his investigation, Yohan teams up with a certain Marceau… Produced by Barbara Letellier and Carole Scotta for Haut et Court, the film is co-produced by Belgian company Versus Productions. Pre-bought by Canal+, Ciné+ and the RTBF, the feature film is also supported by an advance of receipts from the CNC, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, Wallimage, and the Cinéventure, Cinémage and Cinécap Soficas. The seven weeks of filming which will end on 1 December are taking place in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and in Île-de-France with Patrick Ghiringhelli as Director of Photography.


  • LE PARFUM VERT by Nicolas Pariser, co-producer: EAVE graduate Henri-Jacques Bronckart is shooting. Written by the director, the script begins when, in the middle of a performance and in front of a stunned audience, an actor from the Comédie-Française is assassinated with poison. Martin, one of the actors in the play and a direct witness of the murder, is soon suspected by the police and chased by the mysterious organisation that ordered the crime. With the help of Claire, a graphic novel artist, Martin will try to solve the mystery of this violent death during a very eventful journey through Europe…  Produced by Emmanuel Agneray for Bizibi, LE PARFUM VERT is co-produced by France 2 Cinéma and by Belgian company Versus Productions.

  • C’EST DE FAMILLE by Elodie Lélu, producer: EAVE graduate Isabelle Truc is shooting. The film tells the story of Manon, an introverted 16-year-old who finds herself forced to live with her unbearable grandmother Yvonne, a former feminist activist who can no longer live alone. The situation gets worse when Yvonne, confused, begins to mistake Manon for her daughter. For fun, Manon will play along with Yvonne’s delusions and play the role of her mother, whom she barely knew. This is the occasion for her to discover the true story of the women in her family, and to learn, in turn, how to become one. C’EST DE FAMILLE is produced by Isabelle Truc for Iota Production. The film is co-produced by Dries Phlypo and Jean-Claude van Rijckeghem for A Private View (Belgium) and Christine Falco for Camera Oscura (Canada). Filming will take place until 25 November, in the Charleroi region.


  • SKUNK by Koen Mortier, co-producer: EAVE graduate and Dutch National Coordinator Frank Hoeve is shooting. The adaption of a book by Geert Taghon, heavily based on his experience as a social worker, which follows the fate of a family who are dysfunctional, to put it mildly, and whose daily existence is marked by alcohol, sex and violence. Their life is seen through the eyes of a young hero, Liam, a neglected teen who, after spending years locked up in a damp basement, relentlessly watching the same film, and endless bullying at school, winds up in a detention centre where he tries to find comfort with his fellow inmates, and some horses. SKUNK is produced by Eurydice Gysel and Koen Mortier on behalf of Czar Film, in co-production with Frank Hoeve and Katja Draaijer for Baldr Film (the Netherlands).
