EAVE Producers Workshop for the first time in Warsaw

By Katarzyna Grynienko
    Warsaw is hosting the prestigious international Eave Workshop for international film producers, a week long event on cinema marketing strategies that began November 17.
    European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs (www.eave.org) is a leading training, development and networking European programs for film and television producers. During the last 20 years it has organized training events on international and regional level. Many of the workshop's participants were later on awarded at the festivals in Berlin, Cannes, Locarno, Toronto, and other major festivals.

    Each year 50 experienced film producers looking to expand their activity on the European market gather to take part in 3 week-long workshops lead by experts who cover legal matters, marketing strategy, and pitching techniques in the cinema market. This year, apart from the traditional workshop in Luxembourg, the event takes place in Drogheda (Ireland) and Warsaw. Poland's capital city will host over 120 film professionals this week. The Polish edition of EAVE workshop is supported by the Polish Film Institute (www.pisf.pl).
