Brussels young audience festival Filem’on this year addresses a specific target group in their international exchange programme: how to convince young film professionals to embrace children’s cinema? The answer: with the help of experienced producers and directors.
– In a Q&A director Frederike Migom (BINTI, SI-G – picture) will share insight on how she got determined to tell stories for a young audience, and how that guided her throughout the production process.
– Producer Jules Debrock will explain which mutual expectations can define contacts between producers and industry creatives.
– How can film schools inspire filmmakers to produce young audience content? On the panel will be Niv Fux (T-Port, Israel), Zofia Horszczaruk (Warsaw Kids Kino Forum, Kids Kino Lab, Poland), Nicole Kellerhals (Filmhaus Babelsberg, Germany), Charlie Dewulf (Macky Flanders, Belgium) and former film students sharing their personal stories.
Make room for young audience documentaries! On the programme will be screenings, Q&As and a panel discussion with (among others) Iris Grob (director YOUNG HUNTERS, The Netherlands – picture), Karl Emil Rikardsen (director THE ARCTIC CAMELS, Norway) and Bregt Van Wijnendaele (Ket & Doc, Belgium).
