November 5 - 8, Quito, Ecuador
Eurocine Film Festival in partnership with EAVE ON DEMAND and COPAE (Corporation of Audiovisual Producers of Ecuador) are organizing a Development Workshop for experienced producers who are currently working on a fiction project with international co- production potential.
