RealYoung is a 3-step program focusing on documentary stories for younger audiences. Here you will develop, present and network with the aim of bringing your next kids or youth documentary across borders to an international audience.

Children consume a substantial amount of real stories via tablets, TV, mobile, YouTube channels, apps and via many other outlets. At certain ages they are like sponges, absorbing as many challenging topics as possible. We would like to turn the mirror and send a challenge back to creative documentary makers: Let us together develop documentary stories aimed at the platforms where children watch, engage, share and interact.

 

The Program

RealYoung: Bringing children documentaries
to the forefront

The RealYoung 2016 initiative is a 3-step programme with two online components and one on location meeting. The program consists of these three steps:

1) Pre-workshop module

Mid-February, 2016. Online video meetings

The selected project teams are preparing individually for the in residence workshop by getting one-on-one project consultation provided via videoconference by EDN.


2) Development, presentations and networking

March 15-17, 2016. Financing Forum for Kids Content, Malmö, Sweden

Day 1: Intensive development workshop focusing on project development and fine-tuning of project presentations.

Day 2 + 3: Pitching, one-on-one meetings and participating at The Financing Forum for Kids Content.


3) RealYoung Online Pitching Session/video consultation

September, 2016. Online video meetings.

3-4 projects from RealYoung are pitched in an EDN Online Pitching Session dedicated to documentaries for younger audiences. Projects not taking part in the online pitch, will conclude the development program with an individual video consultation, mapping market potentials for the project.
