An initiative of the EU MEDIA Programme with the support of the Italian Government Since 1992 MEDIA Salles has been promoting the European cinema and its circulation at theatrical level
FOCUS ON EUROPE - Kidflix Special - Speciale ragazzi
I take great pleasure in informing you that this year MEDIA Salles is once again organizing a "Focus on Europe - Kidflix Special" event, to which all European exhibitors from countries belonging to the MEDIA Programme and committed to programming for young people and schools are warmly invited.
Following the successful collaboration with the festivals of Castellinaria
in Switzerland and Giffoni in Italy, MEDIA Salles' tradition of synergy
with the leading European film festivals for young people is continuing,
with this year's event reaching the heart of Eastern Europe.
The initiative offers exhibitors an opportunity to become familiar with
a selection of European films for younger audiences, suitable for international
circulation, and to share their most significant experiences in organising
ancillary activities for movie theatres and promotional activities.
We trust that this Focus on Europe event will once more lead to collaboration between professional players and encourage the development of new ideas for fostering the international circulation of European audiovisual products for children.
