Are ethical themes important? Do funders value meaningful content? Do audiences care about values - and what does it matter anyway?
The Animatricks panel “Values in content and funding” focuses on the increasing demand for content aimed towards smarter contemporary audiences. Finland is the fore-runner in production companies with high mission statements, but do funders and buyers really value animation that have something meaningful to say? The panel will be held at Kino Korjaamo (Töölönkatu 51 A-B). The entry is free of charge, but guests will be seated on a “first come, first serve” basis, so do come early to make sure to have a seat!
