The Icelandic Film Centre to hold conference on film literacy and children's material on November 18

The conference, called Creating Content for Young Audiences, will be held in the conference room at Nauthóll in Reykjavík and is intended for those who work with children and on issues having to do with children, including filmmakers, teachers, and representatives of public institutions.

A film is a multifaceted work of art built through the close collaboration of many different parties. Film literacy concerns not only our ability to read stories and characters, but the many different aspects of how a film is made and experienced by an audience. The purpose of this conference is to give participants some tools and training for how to analyze films and to encourage greater production and distribution of high-quality children's material.

Speakers at the conference include two guests from the Danish Film Institute, who have expertise in creating study materials for teachers at all levels of schooling; award-winning creators of children's content from the USA, UK, and Finland; and local film and TV personalities with experience creating material for young audiences.
