HUBS Common RoomRead session report
Why we can’t produce feature films for kids in the UK is a perennial question. Might the solution be to bring together broadcasters with funders? The German and Dutch think so – and have both created successful feature production schemes, with 30% of the financing coming from TV. Bring your lunch bags to this gathering, learn from the people who are making such schemes work, and take part in a discussion as to how we can revive the kids’ feature film in the UK.
Learn more about the German and Dutch schemes from the attached info sheets.
