Applications are now open until January 31, 2022 for the 12th edition of EAVE+.

EAVE+ offers 15 producers the opportunity to discuss their company structures and management practices together with high-profile industry experts during 4,5 days to tackle the business side of running a film company.

The upcoming edition will focus on company sustainability and how to reinvent yourself in times of crisis. Under the title ‘transforming companies’ we will feature a series of company case studies and inspiring new business models and tackle the role of the producer as a leader.

Together with top-notch experts, we will also explore topics such as cashflow management, company strategies, negotiation with financiers and partners, and raising finance from investors and how to create viable business models for the future.

The workshop is led by EAVE+ Head of Studies Jani Thiltges (Samsa Film, LU). Other experts include Linda Beath (Ideal Filmworks, IT), Marc Bordure (AGAT FILMS & Cie / Ex Nihilo, FR), Michael Comyn (The Time Signal Limited, IE), Jonas Katzenstein (augenschein Filmproduktion, DE), Petri Kemppinen (Aurora Studios, FI) and Carole Scotta (Haut et Court, FR).

EAVE+ will take place from April 9-14, 2022 in Luxembourg.

« The EAVE+ workshop was a game changer for me and my team. I've acquired lots of new ideas and ways to develop my company. There is a "before" and "after". »
