Two UK participants selected for the EAVE Producers Workshop 2019

Participants for the 2019 edition of the Creative Europe funded EAVE Producers Workshop have been selected, with two UK producers chosen to attend the training programme. 

They are:

  • Geoff Arbourne, of Inside Out Films (also a recipient of a joint scholarship from PACT and EAVE in the name and memory of EAVE expert Dorothy Viljoen)
  • Elhum Shakerifar, of Hakawati productions.

Run by the training network European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs (EAVE), currently celebrating 30 years of success, this annual, year-long programme focuses on three intensive weeks of professional development through the development of a fiction or documentary project. The workshops provide participants with access to several experts that offer guidance on script analysis, development and production financing, the legal aspects of co-production, marketing, pitching, packaging and more. The first will take place in Luxembourg in March.

Discover more about the experience by reading our blog with a previous EAVE participant; Rosie Crerar, whose credits under the Glasgow-based production company barry crerar include Irene's Ghost.
