WHO ARE WE?
Film TEEP is a co-production training programme organized by ARTVIVA with the support of the Romanian National Center of Cinematography.
The aim is to enable an international framework for development of fiction projects, setting up and building a professional network in the East European region, and to encourage audiovisual collaborations between both EU and non-EU member states.

The selected projects will be announced on 16th of April 2016.
Projects will be selected based on the following criteria:
- Quality and originality of the proposal
- International co-production potential
- Production potential and commercial viability
- Track record of the applicants, and ability to collaborate effectively
Film TEEP will start with a workshop held in Bucharest from 18th to 22nd of May with follow-up tuition available online afterwards.
The course will bring together 10 selected fiction projects in teams of writer/director and producer.
The training will be held in English with a team of established international professionals.
The team of trainers: Patrice Vivancos (Production and Finance Tutor), Catherine Linstrum (Head Script Tutor), Ioan Antoci (Script Tutor), Anatoli Reghintovski (Character Development), Dr. Dirk Poppendieck (Legal), Ruxandra Cernat (Pitching). See CVs for further information at www.artviva.ro.
The workshop sessions will involve individual tutorials, group tutorials, and plenary sessions, and are designed to be as collaborative as possible. The goal for each project will be to improve the creative content and nurture the international potential, so that a script can be developed to have the best possible chances of success in the marketplace.
During the event, the 10 selected teams will have the opportunity to meet and discuss their projects with award-winning Romanian filmmakers.
At the end of the program, the two projects displaying the greatest potential will go on to participation in Mannheim Meeting Place – the co-production market at IFF Mannheim Heidelberg (October 2016 – www.iffmh.de/en) or the When East Meets West at IFF Trieste (January 2017 – http://www.wemw.it/).
