The first week of EAVE Producers Workshop’s 2019 edition wrapped up in Luxembourg!
In partnership with Film Fund Luxembourg, we were thrilled to welcome the selected 52 producers from 30 countries that have been chosen out of 180 applications to develop the 29 selected documentary, feature film and series projects and their entrepreneurial skills at the EAVE Producers Workshop 2019.
The first of 3 residential workshops took place from March 8–15 at the Légère Premium Hotel Luxembourg.
Some highlights of the week:
- Building Story Worlds: Using selected EAVE projects as case studies, Juan DiazB (Kosmology World Building Institute, DE) demonstrated how to build coherent story worlds when developing a 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.
