This brand-new innovative programme, run in close partnership with EAVE, has selected 5 companies that are developing a slate of A/V works and will offer them consultancies on how to build a successful company slate and strategic company planning, together with business-to-business exchanges with key players from different industry sectors.

The programme combines the EAVE group work method with a series of plenary sessions and individual consultancies focusing on strategic company planning, potential risk evaluation and company diversification. The main goal is to define realistic short-, mid- and long-term strategies for their companies and to outline the next steps for each project included in their company slates. The selected teams will have tailor-made curated meetings with a series of WEMW Business Angels, and will receive advice on co-production, financing, marketing and distribution, according to the primary needs of their projects and slates.

The selected companies for the brand new SLATE MARKET are:

  • Achtung Panda! | producer: PUENTES graduate Jamila Wenske | country: Germany
  • Éclipse Film | producer: EAVE graduate Julianna Ugrin | country: Hungary
  • Just a moment | producer: EAVE graduate Dagne Vildziunaite | country: Lithuania
  • Kinocompany | producer: EAVE graduate Ari Matikainen | country: Finland
  • Tico Film Company | producer: EAVE graduate Sarah Pennacchi | country: Italy


The WEMW Inspirational Labs, run in collaboration with leading training programmes and international partners such as EAVE, will offer a deeper insight on TV series content, animation production, impact & outreach strategy, independent online distribution, and on the 2022 East & West spotlight markets.
