EAVE LAUNCHES A NEW EVENT FOR EXPERIENCED PRODUCERS FROM EUROPE AND THE REST OF THE WORLD: EAVE +

EAVE+ is a workshop event for independent producers with a solid track record and international experience, wishing to network with their colleagues from Europe and the rest of the world over one long weekend (4 days).

 

High profile international key note speakers will be invited to jointly discuss with the invited producers issues of business development, new business models, future ways of financing/producing/distributing films, company sustainability and future developments of the international market, taking a look also at other industries and best practices on an international level.

EAVE+ will take the form of an intense four day group work session led by of EAVE Head of Studies Jani Thiltges (Samsa Film, LU) together with EAVE+ consultant Michael Weber (The Match Factory, DE). Each day will start with a keynote session by one of the international guests. All speakers will participate actively in the group work and be available for 1-2-1 meetings in the afternoon.

The event will take place in Luxembourg from September 19-23, 2013 in the design hotel "Le Place d'Armes". 

Guests of the first edition include:

Topics tackled: 

How to grow as a company? How to reinvent yourself after failure? How to sustain a viable business and structure your company? What kind of manager are you? What is the future of film finance? Where are we heading with VoD? What can we learn from the US indies? Which new business models are there? How to achieve a better life work balance?
