Young Horizons Industry is a selection of programmes and initiatives for film professionals that take place during the Young Horizons Industry international co-production forum and throughout the year. Its aim is to support the project development and creators’ careers as well as to promote films and series for young audiences.
In 2023, as an integral part of the Young Horizons Festival, Kids Kino Industry changed the name into Young Horizons Industry. The new name for the industry part brings together our activities such as: Young Horizons Industry, an international co-production forum, Young Horizons Lab, a script development programme, and Young Horizons Docs, a documentary project development programme.
