The workshop was aimed at the selected Armenian producers of feature films who during the intensive training had a chance to enhance their know-how on contemporary methods and techniques applied in Europe, UK and Israel in feature film production starting from the basic planning, selection of topics, and script writing to acquiring funds, and forming strong film producers' unions. A number of master classes were held for a broader audience interested in film production with the renowned EAVE (European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs www.eave.org) experts who revealed the key elements to the successful script writing and film production strategies and applying for co-production, including international co-production. Roughly 100 persons participated in these public lectures.

Examples of countries that have undergone a similar development process were presented by EAVE experts with cases from Luxemburg, Israel, Croatia, and Italy.
The sessions had been facilitated by five EAVE film experts, namely Linda Beath, Roshanak Behesht Nedjad, Clare Downs and Katriel Schory.
