Ramallah 2013

EAVE Workshop for Palestinian producers, writer-directors and writers

RAMALLAH, September 2 – 6, 2013




This is an EAVE Workshop, supported by the British Council and the Palestinian Ministry of Culture, aimed at Palestinian producers, writers and writer/directors. 

The Workshop will take place in Ramallah, September 2 – 6, 2013. 

EAVE (European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs) is a leading training, development and networking organization for producers, a partner in the Interchange Workshop and has previously been involved in workshops for producers and writers in Palestine. (For further information see

The main concerns around which the workshop is built are project development (including script and comprehensive production development), co-production strategies, pitching & presentation.  The project-based training is designed to match the needs of professionals who want to develop their skills through concrete work on their projects - under the expert guidance of international tutors – and who are ready to share their ideas with colleagues and engage themselves in discussions in order to improve and increase their knowledge.
