Breaking record of 220 delegates at the 13th Financing Forum for Kids Content 2019 March 12-14

Among them are 41 Decision Makers, 26 Pitching Teams, 22 countries, 17 ObserverPLUS, 16 Speakers and 13 Young Experts who gather to share, exchange, enhance and inspire each other, us and in the end, the Young Audiences, we have as target group.

We have as a kick start to our Pitching Events, as usual curated a number of talks and case-studies, that makes the Opening Day a must - so participants can sit down, listen, open their minds and get in depth with a large amount of industry inspiration.

One of our high profiled slots is focussing on children’s media at times orientating programming to national curricula through the lens of HISTORY. One of our panellists, PD Dr. phil Barbara Christophe is coordinator of the memory cultures research forum at renowned Georg Eckert Institute.

She and our other panellists will take part in a discussion, with which we aim to start a mutual conversation across borders in Europe, in a time where young audiences more than ever need to understand and gain knowledge about their historical roots and the past in order to be able to better navigate the future in a mature way.

A Panel Debate: History on Screen for Kids

The 80th anniversary of WWII breaking out, the Moon landing’s’ 50th anniversary and the Fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago are all upcoming occasions to look into serious history, past global milestones and conflicts which the world will commemorate in 2019. But how is History being presented to children and teenagers in European media? Which criteria should history content fulfill to engage young audiences? Are there any topics or eras more suitable than others? Which role does perspective play? And how is History knowledge conveyed in different countries? We find this an important question also in view of children’s media at times orientating programming to national curricula.
