By FNE Staff

    About 150 professionals from the European film industry are in Prague this week to participate in the year's last session of the European training program EAVE.

    The workshop has attracted decision-makers from across Europe, including representatives of European funds, co-production forums and broadcasters, who are in Prague to hear about projects from emerging producers.

    Five Czech participants and fellow EAVE program participants from elsewhere in Europe are taking advantage of the opportunity to network with potential backers.

    EAVE, or European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs, is a professional organisation providing intensive and innovating training programs aimed at developing the skills of established producers and professionals working in European film, television and documentary production.

    The EAVE training program comprises three sessions held over a 12-month period during which participants work on their projects intensively. This was the final session of 2007.
