Delegates toast the success of the Children's Film First Conference

The Children's Film First Conference (CFFC), which took place last month in Brussels, Belgium, attracted over 150 delegates from all over Europe, providing opportunities to inspire and educate on children's film.

This was the inaugural year for the CFFC, which took place with the support of the Creative Europe - MEDIA sub-programme. The event included a full day of practical sessions, keynotes and break-out discussions as well as a networking evening. 

Blogs for each session are available to revisit on the CFFC website, including Dr Becky Parry's piece on Children's Film Policy

The next gathering for members of the European Children's Film Association (ECFA) is their AGM on the 13 February 2015, in Berlin.
