Beirut 2020

EAVE ON DEMAND tailor-made workshop for Lebanese producers

September 28 - October 3, online

EAVE is proud to organise an online EAVE ON DEMAND session in co-operation with Fondation Liban Cinéma and in partnership with the French Institute of Lebanon and Culture+ in 2020, from September 28 to October 3, for Lebanese producers.

EAVE ON DEMAND BEIRUT will consist of 6 days of masterclasses and group work sessions, as well as individual meetings for 5 producers and their writers with their projects in development.

EAVE ON DEMAND BEIRUT will combine the long experience that EAVE has in international training and networking with a tailor-made approach for producers from Lebanon, taking into account their specific needs.

The objective is to improve the participants’ skills in international coproduction, film finance and management, marketing, packaging, festival and sales strategies as well as script development, allowing them to take the next step in their careers and businesses.

The workshop will consist of group work and individual meetings for the selected projects in development, as well as master-classes for a wider audience.

The experts for the workshop include the following EAVE experts: group leader  Roshanak Behesht Nedjad (In Good Company, DE), script consultant Jacques Akchoti (FR) and sales and marketing consultant Aranka Matits (Featurette, NL).

Our target group are producers who already have a track record and credit as producer (of short or long feature films and/or documentaries) and who are willing to open up to the international market and to co-produce internationally.

All workshop sessions will be in English.
