EAVE PRODUCERS WORKSHOP 2021

A year long programme focused on three intensive weeks featuring professional development through working on the development of fiction, documentary and TV series projects.

W1 IN LUXEMBOURG (LU), MARCH 5 – 12, 2021
W2 IN ORLÉANS (FR – TBC), JUNE 2021
W3 IN CATALONIA (ES – TBC), OCTOBER 2021

EAVE is aimed at producers, both fiction, documentary and TV series, who are already working in the film and television industries who wish to expand their operation internationally by increasing their knowledge of producing and co-producing in Europe and by building up a pan European professional network. We also welcome 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 most of the EU countries and beyond and take part in three one-week long workshops.

Half the participants attend the course with projects and it is an excellent means of development through intense focus on the project with colleagues and experts throughout the year. The other half come to EAVE in order to focus on developing their companies or careers. Most participants attending with a project also bring their writer for the first two weeks which enables producer and writer 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 60-70 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 MARKETING WORKSHOP 2020

A five-days immersive Audience-focused workshop exploring 360º film marketing by gaining insight about the classic tools and the latest trends in Digital PR, social media management, digital marketing and Audience building.

NOVEMBER 10 – 15, 2020 IN LUXEMBOURG

EAVE offers a tailor-made workshop embracing the importance of marketing techniques and Audience-centered strategies. Although digital, innovation and new windows have always been crucial at this workshop, now there will be more digital-oriented sessions, more online and hybrid case studies and a handful of forward-thinking social media examples that are linked to the new digital era. The 30 carefully selected participants will have a full overview of the actual marketing trades in terms of targeting and positioning from international sales strategies to national release and also generating awareness all across the release process including festivals.

Participants can apply with or without a project at any stage of production to work with cutting-edge marketing specialists. The workshop is targeted at producers as well as professionals working in sales, distribution and marketing departments.  Also, applications from related areas of the industry (e.g. regional and national funding institutions, film festivals and markets etc.) and from relevant trainers and consultants who want to innovate in their marketing techniques, are welcome.
