- Each producer’s project is assigned to three ACE consultants during the training year: a script consultant, a financing consultant and a marketing consultant.
- ACE closely follows the development of each project. Depending on individual needs, producers can have meetings (in person or online, as most practical) with their consultants as many times as they wish throughout the year.
- ACE remains ready to effect introductions on behalf of its producers – at any time throughout the training year and thereafter – to potential funding and distribution partners, to members of the ACE Network, and to other professional contacts.
- ACE will also do its best at any time in the future to give advice to its producers on other projects they are developing, with regard to production, financing, distribution, international sales, festival participation, etc, as needed.
- Festivals and Markets: ACE organises gatherings of leading industry professionals and ACE producers at Cannes, Berlin, Toronto, Rotterdam and other significant international events, providing access and introductions to world sales agents, distributors, commissioning editors, heads of funds and valuable contacts.
- ACE Producers Annual Reunion: This professional-cum-social rendez-vous, held in a different country each year, brings together at least 50 members of the ACE Network with prominent industry speakers and special guests.
- ACE Database: An exclusive online database, accessible only to ACE Network members, features ACE producers’ contact details, recent productions and projects in development.
- Facebook Networking Group: ACE maintains a private Facebook page available to ACE Network members, where producers regularly exchange information, announce screenings and awards, and share contacts. Questions posted here reach professionals in 45 countries instantly.
