Amsterdam: IDFA November 26th 2014
Documentaries for a young audience are offering filmmakers an endless number of playful possibilities. But also a number of challenges. How can we stimulate documentaries for young audiences in different countries? What are the structures when it comes to production and distribution? What are the undiscovered possibilities to cooperate when it comes to financing? How can producers and directors anticipate on an audience who is consuming large amounts of screen content on multiple platforms and no longer watch television in a traditional way?
Joining forces to lift documentaries for kids and young audiences to the next level, RealYoung is a new collaboration between IDFA, EDN - European Documentary Network and The Financing Forum for Kids Content and with support from Swedish Film Institute. One event in Amsterdam in November shed light on the challenges of co-production and distribution of documentaries for young audiences and a following event in March, during The Financing Forum for Kids Content in Malmö will focus on innovative, in-depth project development.
JumpZone© is a part of Kids Cluster, which initiate and establish lasting professional relationships between Scandinavian professionals and their counterparts based in other continents.
