EEFA: Legal and Distribution Matters Workshop

Between November 25 - 28, EEFA Training Network is organizing the fourth and last workshop of this year, Legal and Distribution Matters Workshop in Tallinn, in partnership with PÖFF Black Nights Film Festival.


The teams of the seven documentary and eight fiction features from European and Non-European countries, will benefit from the teachings of our experts, lead by Head of Studies Catherine Buresi, Co-director of the Berlinale European Film Market: Legal Expert Dirk Poppendieck and Distribution Expert Marta Lamperova, Content Expert Jacques Laurent, co-founder of Télévision Du Monde and Capnetwork Belgium, Production Expert Patrice Vivancos, and Visiting Expert Dorota Roszkowska, from the Dragon Forum International Academy of Document.


The trainers will interact with the participating producers both in group sessions and in one to one meetings, and will discuss key aspects in the domain of legal and distribution matters concerning film: what is a contract, what is a co-production, author rights and copyright, what means to be "owner of rights", where to sell a film, sales agents, MG, territories, all rights, TV channels (what and how they buy films and documentaries). Also there will be a session of resume for the whole one-year workshop, along with Q&A on the previous training topics, mainly concerning film production.


Evenings will be dedicated to business activities, networking and viewings at the PÖFF Black Nights Film Festival.


At the end of the workshop, all the participants will sustain a two part pitching session: one for documentaries, one for fiction projects, juried by a panel of EEFA Training Network experts and other guest experts attending PÖFF. After the deliberation, the best three projects will be awarded with scholarships to our partners' training networks: When East Meets West co-production event and Dragon Forum International Academy of Document.
