SUCCESSFUL CLOSURE FOR THE EAVE 2013 EUROPEAN PRODUCERS WORKSHOP IN VIENNA

The EAVE 2013 European Producers Workshop came to a close with its third and last workshop in Vienna, Austria (October 21-28), organized in partnership with Vienna Film Fund.

During this final workshop, the 51 participants from 32 countries met 61 high-profile European film industry professionals in pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings and pitched the 31 projects that have been developed throughout the workshop year. This year, 61 key industry professionals attended as decision makers. 

(*Please find the complete list of Decision Makers here.) 

In Vienna, over 750 pre-scheduled one-to-one encounters and various informal meetings took place. The participants were able to pitch their projects and companies, to network and create valuable business contacts for the future. The relaxed workshop setting provided an ideal framework not only to do business, but more importantly to get an exclusive feedback from leading industry professionals.

In addition to the regular workshop programme, EAVE@Vienna>, a special programme for the local film industry gathered over 70 Austrian professionals.

Some quotes from attending decision makers :
