Please check this page for the next Call for Submissions in January 2014.
For the fifth time in 2013 and after the great success in 2012, Ties That Bind – Asia Europe Producers Workshop will be organised again in 2013 in partnership with FVG Audiovisual Fund, EAVE, Udine Far East Film Festival and Busan International Film Festival / Asian Project Market.
Ties That Bind 2013 will consist of two workshops, workshop 1 taking place in Udine (Italy) during April 22-26, 2013 within the framework of the Udine Far East Film Festival (April, 2013) and workshop 2 being organized in October 6-10, 2013 during the Busan International Film Festival (October 3-12, 2013) in South Korea.
The workshops will bring together 10 film producers from Asian and European countries. Each producer will be selected together with a feature film project in development and will work with leading industry experts from both continents during the two workshops. Amongst a range of issues, sessions will focus on script development, co-production between Asia and Europe, financing in the two regions, marketing and promotion, and the legal aspects of co-production. The workshop participants will work together as a group, as well as through individual consultation, and will have the unusual opportunity to get to know each other very well with the object of forming long term creative and business partnerships and networks. The programme will culminate in Busan in October 2013 with meetings between the participants and leading Asian and European funders and sales agents during the Asian Project Market.
The workshop will enable feature film producers from both continents to work together in two four-day workshops and will offer the 10 selected participants:
Scripts are to be sent only on request but should be ready in time for the first workshop. All documents have to be sent in English – the working language of the workshop will be English.
The participation at EAVE Ties That Bind is free of charge. Each participant will be offered accommodation during the workshop stay (full board including meals). In addition, we will offer a number of partial scholarships to contribute to the travel costs.
EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: March 1, 2013.
The selection will be made by a selection committee and will be published by mid March, 2013.
