Czech Film Center joins EAVES

Program has nurtured five Czech film projects

The Czech Film Center has joined with one of Central and Eastern Europe’s major talent farms, the training program European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs, which brings 150 film industry bizzers to Prague Monday.

Also backed by the European film development agency Media Desk, the weeklong event culminates in a seminar that pairs emerging producers with funding sources, distribs and broadcasters.

Over the past year, program, known as EAVES, has nurtured five Czech film projects, among others, with European co-production potential: “It’s Just an Old Cottage,” helmed by Slobodanka Radun; Lenka Kny’s “Granddaughter”; Tomas Masin’s “Hitler’s Money”; Jan Prusinovsky’s “Part-Time Virgin”; and Julius Sevcik’s “Testament.”

Key aim of scheme is to establish networks and networking skills in the newest European Union member countries and to “revive and refine the approach to production and co-production,” says org’s leaders.

Goal is shared by several other non-profit development outfits in the region, such as East European Forum, which concluded a similar session for local docu makers at the Jihlava docu fest in October.
