Accessing the film market in digital era: Producer training project to kick off in Tunisia
Twenty-five producers from Southern Mediterranean countries will get the chance to be trained on how to best access the film market in this digital age by the project ‘Access to markets in the digital era’, funded under the Euromed Audiovisual III programme.
A press release said the participants, to start the training on 20 March, will gain detailed insight into various aspects of the profession, including development strategies, production financing, coproduction, deal terms, and legal issues, marketing, distribution, and digital media.
The first training module will take place in Tunis from March 20 to 25, and will be focused on project development techniques, financing, co-production, legal affairs, deal terms and negotiation skills.
The programme will follow in July with a ten-day online training and consultancy module to enable participants to finalise their project financing plans and production strategies, and to begin to prepare a digital and communication strategy.
The third and last module will be held in Jordan in October and will focus on marketing, distribution, digital media, and communication skills.
The EU-funded project “Access to markets in the digital era” is part of the Euromed Audiovisual III programme, and focuses on training and coaching through workshops and online training in development strategies, production financing, coproduction, deal terms and legal issues, marketing, distribution and digital media.
The Euromed Audiovisual III programme aims to contribute to the development and strengthening of the capacity of the film sector in the ENPI South region (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Occupied Palestinian Territory, Syria, Tunisia) and to contribute significantly to mutual understanding, intercultural dialogue and cultural diversity, in line with the Strategy for the Development of Euro-Mediterranean Audiovisual Cooperation, approved by Euromed culture ministers in Athens in May 2008.
