On Wednesday September 20th, around 100 people were welcomed by organizer Per Eriksson in Stockholm for the ECFA seminar on ‘Screening for children’. The seminar focused on a question pertinent for many people working with children’s film: what to do after the screening, when you start processing the film with the young audience?
- Do you open discussions on an academic level?
- Do you focus on cinematography or on the socio-political content of a film?
- Do you appeal to the highlights of film history, or opt for an artistic approach?
Various experts, including several ECFA members, shared their experiences on how to screen and discuss cinema for and with children so as to engage them with the medium.
