EAVE – European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs is proud to announce a new co-operation with the International Sàmi Film Institute, organizing together an EAVE on Demand workshop for Sami producers in Kautokeino, from October 1-5, 2019.

At the EAVE on Demand Kautokeino workshop we will combine the long experience that EAVE has in international training and networking with a tailor-made approach for Sami producers, taking into account their specific needs. The objective is to improve the participants’ skills in international coproduction, film finance and management, marketing, packaging and script development as well as company planning, allowing them to take the next step in their careers and businesses.

The 4-day workshop will be a mixture of masterclasses for a larger group of professionals and group work sessions for selected producers with and without project, as well as company planning sessions for selected CEOs of production companies.
