Are you a film professional, a parent or a teacher? Do you believe it is important to help children and young people navigate the omnipresent world of audiovisual media?
We do! And that is why we’ve put together a forum of industry professionals working in different European cultural organizations, festivals and initiatives towards the common goal of developing high-quality and enjoyable content for kids and their parents, so that they don’t get lost in the sea of diverse multimedia production.
Audiovisual content is attacking all of us from different directions (in the form of TV, social networks, traditional media, cinemas and even on the streets) and children and youth are impacted the most.
Since the conditions for addressing this issue are different in each of the V4 countries, we want to create a unique platform to share our diverse experiences and learn from examples of good practice.
In June, The Visegrad Young Film Days focused on the importance of a parent as a role model. Together with professionals from more than ten European countries we discussed the role of parents in keeping their children informed about the world of multimedia, the ways to attract young audiences and keep them interested in learning about audiovisual media and how to make sure we are not excluding anyone.
The Visegrad Young Film Days, part Young Film Fest Industry Programme, focuses on development of audiovisual education in countries of the Visegrad Group (V4: Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia).
Our goal is to draw attention to the importance of audiovisual education at international level and to connect professionals from different places of the V4 region and beyond.

The project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
