An intensive workshop for independent producers with solid track record and international experience who wish to reinforce their managerial and financial capacity to run sustainable production companies and compete on the international market.

IN LUXEMBOURG, April 19 - 24, 2024

Applications are now closed for the 14th edition of EAVE+!

Join this compact workshop to get a comprehensive industry update and an insight into the latest business models. EAVE+ offers 15 producers the opportunity to discuss their company structures and management practices together with high-profile industry experts during 4,5 days to tackle the business side of running a film company.

The upcoming edition will focus on company sustainability and how to reinvent yourself in times of change. Under the title ‘transforming companies’ we will feature a series of company case studies and inspiring new business models and tackle the role of the producer as a leader.

Together with top-notch experts, we will also explore topics such as cashflow management, company strategies, negotiation with financiers and partners, and raising finance from investors and how to create viable business models for the future. All producers will work on their individual leadership qualities and resilience in private coaching sessions.

EAVE+ will take place from April 19-24, 2024 in Luxembourg.
