Within the framework of the European Capitals of Culture initiative for Galway 2020 and Rijeka 2020,  EAVE will select a group of five Irish producers – with priority given to the Galway and West of Ireland region – as well as five Croatian producers to join Workshops 2 and 3 of EAVE Producers Workshop 2020. Irish and Croatian producers can apply to join with a project (fiction, documentary or TV series) or as participants focusing on career development without a specific project.

For the selected Irish producers, participation in the Galway Workshop is free of charge thanks to funders: Gréasán na Meán Skillnet, Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland, Screen Skills Ireland and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland. Accommodation will be provided if required at no extra cost. Participation in the Rijeka Workshop is free of charge and accommodation will be provided but note that travel to Rijeka/Opatija is not covered – travel to and from the workshop in Croatia is at the Irish participants’ own expense.


EAVE, European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs, is one of the leading training and development providers for producers in Europe, renowned for its EAVE Producers Workshop.

The workshops dates will be from June 8 – 12 in Galway, Ireland and October 20 – 24 in Rijeka/Opatija, Croatia, 2020.


EAVE is aimed at producers, both fiction, documentary and TV series, who are already working in the film and television industries who wish to begin to operate on a European wide basis by increasing their knowledge of producing and co-producing in Europe and by building up a pan European professional network.


Part of the participants attend the course with projects and it is an excellent means of development through intense focus on the project with colleagues and experts. The other part come to EAVE in order to focus on developing their companies or careers.

The Irish and Croatian participants work as a group led by experienced producer Titus Kreyenberg (unafilm, DE) and with several experts on script analysis, development and production financing, legal aspects of co-production, marketing, pitching, packaging and more. In the October workshop 60-70 Decision Makers (commissioning editors, national and regional media funds, sales agents, etc.) join the participants to discuss the projects, companies and careers of the participants, a process which offers unusual access to Europe’s Decision Makers.

Participation at both workshops will also be a unique opportunity to network with EAVE’s 55 participants from 40 countries and the EAVE experts and pedagogical team.
