Press releases 2018-07-31

Polish Film Institute and EAVE (European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs), one of the leading professional training, project development and networking organizations for audiovisual producers, are happy to announce the continuation of their successful partnership that will again and for the third time offer a scholarship for one Polish producer and project for the EAVE 2019 Producers Workshop

The award of 30.000 PLN, sponsored by the Polish Film Institute, towards the costs of the participation in the EAVE 2019 workshops will be granted to one of the selected projects in development pitched at the Polish Days (July 30 – August 1, 2018), the most important industry event in Poland, held in the framework of the New Horizons International Film Festival (July 26 – August 5, 2018) in Wroclaw. 
The award will be presented during the Polish Days awards ceremony on August 1, 2018, by EAVE’s CEO Kristina Trapp. 

Past beneficiaries of the PFI/EAVE award have been Magdalena Kaminska (Balapolis), who is pitching her latest project BEFORE THE HORIZON ENDS by Anka Sasnal and Wilhelm Sasnal, as well as Marta Golba (Endorfina Studio), who is presenting her latest production WHITE CUBE by Wojciech Pustola at the Polish Days this year:

Magdalena Kamiska:  “In 2016 I was awarded with the scholarship when pitching feature film WEREWOLF at the Polish Days New Horizons. Now the film is completed. Thanks to the PFI’s scholarship and EAVE  I was part of the 2017 workshop that gave me energy, knowledge, professional contacts and new friendships. All the benefits and experience gained are working out well for me now.“

Marta Golba:  “EAVE challenges, questions and sometimes deconstructs. All that to guide you, give tools and an amazing network of people from all arround the world to create a cinema beyond borders. I feel it is essential at this stage of my career and I would not be able to afford to participate in this adventure without the support of PFI.“
