MRST4FF call for applications
The European Women’s Audiovisual Network is pleased to announce a call for applications from European audiovisual professionals to participate in the second edition of its innovative Multiple Revenue Stream Training Course For Future Films.
The key objective of MRST4FF is to equip European audiovisual professionals with the necessary skills to reach a wide international audience in the context of digital convergence, through an innovative training course designed with experts in online marketing & distribution and new business models for the film industry.
NEW Application deadline: April 1st, 2016
Promoting and protecting cultural diversity of audiovisual content is one of the goals of EWA. The Network and its members strive to attain greater gender equality in the audiovisual sector for creative roles (producer, director and scriptwriter) and technical crew and to encourage greater reflection on representations of gender identity in audiovisual content. In order to ensure that cultural diversity of content is safeguarded and promoted it is vital that European producers and content creators assimilate a wider range of new business models, marketing skills, branding and crowd-funding knowledge and online distribution skillsets.
The course “Multiple Revenue Stream Training For Future Films” will encourage producers and content creators to use new technologies and ensure their projects have diverse content. This will in turn help ensure their projects remain competitive in a digital context, which can see more users turning to VOD platforms.
During the course participants will attend two workshops:
- Workshop one – Pisa, Italy (29 June – 3 July 2016)
- Workshop two – Strasbourg, France (23-27 November 2016)
The training course will accompany producers/content creators with a project and with a desire to exploit new technologies in an innovative and up-to-date manner, through training in social marketing, strategizing, branding and crowd-funding for their projects (Workshop 1), specifically relevant negotiation and pitching in order to acquire the skillsets necessary to secure product placement and other deals which can later feed into the multiple revenue streams, e.g. online distribution of the film and devising strategies for multiple media distribution of their projects (smartphones, VOD, traditional theatrical release, etc.), securing contracts for digital distribution and follow-on marketing support and credible business plans for multiple revenue stream income from projects (Workshop 2).
Trainers & Tutors
The training sessions and online tutoring will be conducted by renowned professionals.
