ICO Children's Screening Days - May 2015

The ICO is delighted to announce the first Children's Screening Days, a free industry screenings event showcasing upcoming releases for children, families and young people.

We hope the introduction of Children's Screening Days will give independent exhibitors the opportunity to see a range of titles for young audiences to consider adding to their programmes in upcoming months. 

The event will take place at Showroom in Sheffield on Tuesday 5 May 2015, and will also incorporate workshops, panels and presentations on how best to develop audiences for a diverse range of children's cinema.

Sessions will be targeted both towards venues that are just starting to think about creating programmes for children, and venues that already offer films for younger audiences but are keen to expand or develop their offer.

In addition, you'll be able to meet and network with fellow exhibitors during the complimentary lunch and drinks reception!

Want to get a taste of what you'll learn on the day? Read some great advice on our blog about programming an outstanding children's strand  here.
