Initiatives

RealYoung celebrates 5th Year Anniversary!

The initiative RealYoung is all about developing documentary projects for young audiences.

The 2019 edition  will be our 5th executive year of RealYoung and we are excited to already  realize, that big leaps have been taken towards bringing our vision of setting focus on high profiled documentaries for kids and teenagers to life.

We will continue our strategy to create a stronger market guidance for the projects after the pitching in order to better equip the project teams to meet market expectations. This include input to their distribution strategies, outreach plans and audience engagements.

In the future, we aim to extend RealYoung to go beyond the annual project development and networking currently in focus. We will initiate information- and experience sharing, that can foster circulation of best practices among documentary filmmakers and financiers.

Work-shop takes place March 12th 09:00-13:00 at Folk, Mat & Möten and is by pre-registration only.

All Observers Seats at REALYOUNG are FULLY BOOKED!
