Pitching for Directors
EWA Network partners up with Hanna Slak to offer this training intended for directors who already have experiences pitching at international industry events.
In Slak's words, "it is especially beneficial for those who feel those past experiences were not pleasant, not good enough, no fun, stressful, or even traumatic."
Based on Slak's practical experience pitching and winning pitching prizes.
EAVE - Developing powerful female and male characters
Participants of the 2018 edition of the EAVE producer’s workshop are offered the opportunity to participate in EWA´S ground-breaking workshop to learn how to challenge the way we shape women and men in our films and become an innovative creator of female and male characters.
What impact do patriarchal thought patterns have on character development? As filmmakers, how do we influence the fictional presentation and perception of women and other social groups by our use of images and sound? Do we simply reproduce old ways of thinking through our « archeological » approach to presenting protagonists in our stories? What are the new tools for shaping characters in a more balanced way? What does it mean to activate a more feminine gaze on the world no matter whether you are a man or a woman? How we can help give birth to new perspectives on ourselves and others?
