Acceleration Programme. Financing Audiovisual in Times of Transformation. September- October-November 2021
EWA Network's Acceleration Programme ‘Financing Audiovisual in Times of Transformation’ offers female entrepreneurs in the European film and television industry a tailored support for re-evaluating not only their audiovisual projects but their companies as well.
By enabling participants to create suitable alternative financing options the programme will lay the foundation for improved strategic business and financing decisions, ultimately for building sustainable audiovisual companies and lucrative professional careers.
The sessions are designed in form of impulse and workshop presentations, of group- and homework and intensive individual mentoring rounds. The programme will be held in English and is designed to entirely take place on-line. We're proud to have Juliane Schulze as trainer and mastermind behind this programme.

EWA Network partners up with Hanna Slak to offer this training intended for directors who already have experiences pitching at international industry events.

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?
