Date Posted: January 10, 2019
Northern Ireland Screen intends to run a skills development programme to attend the ‘Kidscreen Summit’ being hosted this year in Miami. The programme will provide a training opportunity for up to five Junior Development Producers, Associate Producers or equivalent, to experience this Summit for the first time in February 2019.
The aim is to encourage local animation companies to develop their expertise in producing content for the International market.
The programme will pay for the participants’ travel, accommodation and accreditation costs across three days of the summit between10th February – 14th February 2019.
Kidscreen Summit is renowned as the kid’s entertainment industry’s most important annual event. Executives attend Kidscreen to take advantage of the business networking and to engage in critical dialogue on issues that affect the industry.
As part of its overall remit to help grow a dynamic and sustainable screen industry in Northern Ireland, our objective through this targeted intervention is to help the participants further their skills in this arena, inform them of industry standards and requirements and network with peers and contacts, so they can compete effectively within the global industry.
