MAIA Workshops c/o Genova-Liguria Film Commission
MAIA Workshops is a training programme in the field of project development. It is articulated in two residential workshops and three two-day seminars. In both workshops, the organizers will make extensive use of and explore the limits and potential of new digital technologies. The workshops are designed for New European producers, with priority given to professionals originating from the Mediterranean area, the countries of Eastern Europe, regions with low audiovisual production capacity and countries that have only recently accessed the MEDIA Programme.
Workshop 3: Legal & Financial Issues - September 24 - 28, 2012 in Saubadia, Lazio Region, Italy.
The MEDIA-funded Maia Workshops is structured in three stand-alone five-day residential workshops. Each one offers a combination of case-studies, theoretical lessons and practical exercises, specific work on participants' projects, one-to-one meetings with tutors and trainers and networking opportunities. Participants can attend one, two or all three workshops, (although Workshop 1 has already taken place this year), with or without a project in development, depending on specific needs. Each workshop is open to twenty participants and the working language is English.

Workshop 2: Legal and Financial Issues, 24-28 September 2012, Saubadia, Lazio Region, Italy
