m:brane Forum is exclusively aimed at content for Young Audiences age 3-18 years.

m:brane has dedicated its work to become a Greenhouse of development, experiment and opportunity for the network of progressive Producers and DecisionMakers forcefully bringing innovative, artistic content with an edge to life for sophisticated, intelligent and savvy young audiences. Since 2015 the m:brane initiative REALYOUNG© for Documentaries, has grown stronger and stronger and is now a weighty part of the international Youth Documentary scene.

m:brane’s REALYOUNG© is a well designed development scheme, which – in tune with the overall vision of m:brane – bring documentary producers in close dialogue with funders, distributors and a board of youth experts, to strengthen their quest for creating daring, edgy and contemporary projects for the international market.

m:brane’s REALYOUNG© is in collaboration with Paradiddle Pictures, that is offering documentary training, guidance, content and partnership, based in Copenhagen, DK and IDFA – the world’s biggest documentary film festival, Amsterdam, NL

For the REALYOUNG© Development Projects we are looking for ideas that should be independent of any sort of restrictions like budget, format and stage of development.

NOTE: The REALYOUNG Development is a non-pitch category
