The ICO is delighted to announce our Young Audiences Screening Day, an industry screenings event showcasing upcoming releases for children and young audiences (16-30 years old).

The event will take place at Showroom in Sheffield on Friday 5 May 2017, and will also incorporate capacity building sessions on how best to develop audiences for a diverse range of cinema aimed at young audiences.

Sessions will be targeted both towards venues that are just starting to think about creating focused programmes for young audiences, and venues that are keen to expand or develop their existing offer.

We’re delighted to be able to announce that we’re kicking off Young Audiences Screening Day with a keynote from Florine Wiebenga, Head of Education at Amsterdam’s Eye Filmmuseum, on working with young adult audiences and the rewards of engaging with the next generation of cinemagoers.

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

Terms and conditions

ICO Screening Days are industry events open to people working or volunteering in an organisation whose primary purpose is the exhibition of films to the public. Please note: as all films screened at these events are previews, there is a press embargo including commentary on social networking sites and film forums.

There was a range of films on offer that I was interested in seeing, so very useful to be able to do this all in one day and focus on programming ideas away from the office

Capacity building sessions

In addition to showing the best upcoming films, Young Audiences Screening Day will have a range of capacity building sessions to inform your audience development strategies.

Sessions will be targeted both towards venues that are just starting to think about creating focused programmes for young audiences, and venues that are keen to expand or develop their existing offer.

We’ll be kicking off Young Audiences Screening Day with a keynote from Florine Wiebenga, Head of Education at Amsterdam’s Eye Filmmuseum, on working with young adult audiences and the rewards of engaging with the next generation of cinemagoers.

Want to start a young audiences programme but don’t have the funding? Jen Skinner, Audience Development Manager, Reel Solutions, will be revealing how to you can engage audiences on a shoestring budget.

You’ve got the tots into the cinema, but how do you keep them coming as they outgrow your programmes? Mike Tait, Youth Development Officer, Dundee Contemporary Arts, will present his Shorts for Wee Ones package and offer advice on how to get and maintain young audiences year after year.

Thinking about setting up a young programmers group? Dan Thomas, BFI FAN, will talk through what he’s learnt through the Young Film Programmers Network Forum, getting into the nitty gritty of what works and what obstacles you might face in creating an interactive space for young audiences.

Into Film will be joining us to talk about their Get Into Film YouTube channel and their plans to engage 16-19 year olds with cinema.

The Showroom has an infrared hearing loop facility in the cinema for delegates with a hearing impairment. In-ear headsets and necklace amplification devices are available from the Box Office on request. For further details please visit Showroom’s website.

How do you select films for the programme?

At this event we’ll be looking for films for children and young audiences (from 16-30), bringing you a selection of the best independent titles coming into distribution so you’re empowered to make informed choices for young audiences during the summer holiday months. Alongside screenings, you’ll also have the opportunity to listen to expert speakers and case studies around the programming and marketing of cinema for children and young people.

Why can only five members of my organisation attend?

As we only have a limited capacity, we limit the number of passes for any one organisation to five. This ensures that the largest number of organisations can benefit from the event. Attendees must also be engaged in one of the following areas within their organisation: programming, marketing, education, audience development, or on the selection committee of a film society/club

Can I Tweet or share reviews or comments on the films in public?

No. While we appreciate your enthusiasm (or otherwise) for films you see at Screening Days, the terms that we receive the films under completely prohibit any social media or film forum discussion of films in the Screening Days programme. Distributors and the ICO monitor social media channels for discussion of the films. Please do feel free to discuss the films in person with other delegates, and if you’d like to talk about the event in general on social media you can find us at @ICOtweets #ScreeningDays.

When will you be hosting the next Screening Days and where?

The next Screening Days events will be 1st to 3rd July at the Phoenix in Leicester and a subsequent event in autumn; dates and location to be confirmed soon! Join our mailing list to receive updates.
