Developing Producers

Maia Workshops is a one-year training programme, made up of three immersive week-long residencies. Attendees can tailor their training experience to their needs, and can choose to apply for a single workshop or to go for the full package.
All sessions are delivered by experts with at least 20 years experience in the audiovisual trade.
On request our team works all year round to develop new tailor-made workshops, in order to provide the most up-to-date insights about the industry, markets, festivals and funders.

Who can apply

Emerging professionals wishing to develop their career and network, to improve their global understanding of the industry as a whole or to focus on individual aspects. Professionals needing a tutor for the development of a new challenging project. Each workshop is open to 20 international participants and delivered in the English language.  


The participation fee for each workshop is 1000€ inclusive of tuition, accommodation and meals. Application to the three-workshop package costs 3000€ and ensures a place throughout the entire programme. A limited number of partial scholarships are available for participants coming from countries where no local funding is available.
