The Children’s Film First Conference was organised by The Children’s Media Conference on behalf of ECFA.
The Children’s Media Conference is the UK’s premier gathering for everyone involved in children’s content and distribution. Over 1000 delegates come to the conference every July in Sheffield. In addition to the main summer conference, the CMC organises a number of activities during the year, all for the UK kids’ content industry: UK@Kidscreen delegation, CMC Rights Exchange and Manimation. The CMC is proud to have organised the Children’s Film First Conference.
The European Children’s Film Association
The aim of the European Children’s Film Association is to support cinema for children and youth in all its aspects: cultural, economical, aesthetic, social, political and educational.
Since its founding in 1988, ECFA has brought together a wide range of European film professionals and associations, producers, directors, distributors. ECFA aims to set up a working structure in every European country for films for children and young people, a structure adapted to Europe’s multicultural interests.
ECFA has a fully comprehensive website including databases on children’s film festivals, sales agents, distributors and TV-programmers interested in European films for children.
ECFA is funded by Creative Europe to organise the Children’s Film First Project of which the CFF Conference is a part.
