The three-day international co-production forum for films and series for young audiences will take place between 30 September – 2 October 2024 at the Kinoteka Cinema in Warsaw.

Participants who cannot join us onsite will have a chance to take part online. The programme includes keynotes, pitching presentations, one-to-one meetings, script consultations, side programmes Producers LINK and Young Talents, and Young Horizons Festival screenings.

Take the first sneak peek at the programme

Curated by Viola Gabrielli, this year’s Forum programme will explore the topic “PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES: How technological innovations are reshaping the creative process and working models.”

We are happy to work with AC Coopens, a founder of THE CATALYSTS, a boutique agency boosting the development of innovative and creative players in digital technology and film, immersive media, music, design and the arts, and a moderator and speaker at events such as EFM or Marché du Cannes. At Young Horizons Industry AC will be hosting the conference sessions.

A full conference programme with speakers names and bios will be available closer to the date of the event.
