EAVE Producers Workshop 2016: Applications Now Open
Applications are now open for the next edition of the EAVE Producers Workshop in 2016. The programme will be offered by the European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs (EAVE) and is aimed at producers from both fiction and documentary. Applications will be accepted until 18 September 2015.
The EAVE Producers Workshop 2016 is a one-year programme consisting of three one-week workshops in different locations throughout Europe. The course content focuses on professional development by working on the development of fiction and documentary projects. The workshop is aimed at producers already working in the film and television industries wishing to operate on a European wide basis. In order to achieve this, the programme offers the opportunity to create a pan European professional network while providing detailed insights on producing and co-producing in Europe. EAVE also welcomes applications from associated branches of the industry – e.g. commissioning, funding, legal and finance, festivals & markets, media administration. Each year fifty participants are selected from EU countries and beyond.
How does it work?
Half of the participants attend the course with their projects and intensively focus on the project development in collaboration with colleagues and experts throughout the year. Most participants attending with a project also bring their writer for the first two weeks allowing both to benefit together from one-to-one sessions with script experts.
During the first two workshops, participants work within groups led by experienced producers and with several experts on script analysis, development and production financing, legal aspects of co-production, marketing, pitching, packaging and more. In the third workshop, 50-60 Decision Makers (commissioning editors, national and regional media funds, sales agents, etc.) join the participants to discuss the projects, companies and careers of the participants, a process which offers unusual access to Europe's Decision Makers.
EAVE graduates join a unique network of active European producers which forms one of the backbones of the industry. Furthermore, EAVE participants and members benefit from the institution's partnerships with the leading European film festivals and markets where EAVE facilitates graduate participation.
The interviews with a pre-selection of candidates will take place in autumn 2015 and the selection will be announced in December 2015. The 3 workshops take place during March 3 - 10 in Luxembourg, June 13 - 20 in Lithuania and October/November (dates TBC) in Prague.
The deadline for submitting applications is 18 September 2015.
