Film producer Basel Mawlawi is participating in the EAVE Producers Workshop 2021 with focus on his upcoming feature documentary called Yalla Parkour.
This year 52 producers from 37 countries have been selected out of 220 applications from 52 countries.
As EAVE Head of Studies Lise Lense Møller puts it: “We … look for very different profiles… (and) do not choose participants based solely on merits or quality of project. We actively look for diversity – not just in terms of the usual: gender, age, race, nationality etc. – but also in terms of points of view, experience, focus (e.g on format or genre), company set-up etc. It is our opinion, that the more diverse the group we put together is in any given year, the richer the experience for the participants.”
Film producer Basel Mawlawi is selected for the EAVE Producers Workshop 2021.
