The Visegrad Young Film Days (the industry programme of the Young Film Fest) focused on opening the debate about the development of audio-visual education in the four countries of the Visegrad Group (V4): Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.
Organiser Radka Hoffmanova: “The goal of The Visegrad Young Film Days is to draw attention to the importance of audio-visual education at an international level, especially in the V4 countries. Today’s diverse audio-visual production has a massive impact on children and youth. Since the conditions for addressing this issue are very different in each of the V4 countries, we are planning to create a unique unifying platform, a space for sharing experiences and examples of good practice.”
Besides online presentations, interviews and masterclasses, with this year’s special theme ‘Parents as role models’ in mind, there was an intriguing ‘fireside chat’ about the possibilities of involving parents in audio-visual education.
The Visegrad Young Film Days took place from 15-18 June. Later this year the festival group plans another event in October, hosted in Prague and Brno (Czech Republic).
