Good Practice Information
The Maia Workshops is an advanced training programme for emerging European producers providing them with the fundamental skills needed to steer a fiction or documentary project. Maia is structured in three independent five-day residential workshops. Each one offers a tight combination of case-studies, theoretical lessons and practical exercises, specific work on
participants' projects and one-to-one meetings with tutors and trainers.
MAIA workshops aim at providing the participants with the basic creative and managerial skills needed to steer a fiction, documentary or cross-media project all the way from concept to screen with particular attention to new and innovative ways of making and marketing low-budget films.
Evidence of success
Last year, 33 producers coming from 19 countries took part in the workshops: professionals in the audio-visual industry such as new fiction, documentary and cross-media producers, line producers and production managers, screenwriters, directors & heads of development, post-graduates and other audio-visual professionals. The project is being supported by the EU Media programme
