At youth film festivals controversial films ofter raise the questions - which audience should be allowed to see which films or if these films should have age restrictions. Boundaries have shifted as the content platforms are getting more and more accessible - cinemas, festival screenings, TV, streaming platforms and Internet. In some countries the limiting of visual content is not specifically regulated, yet in other countries it is.
In the panel we will raise some important questions…

What are the limitations for youth films nowadays?
Is suitability for children and youth essentially a matter of opinion and depends on personal expectations and definitions of childhood?
How important is cultural pretext in defining youth film?

Panel discussion takes place in cooperation with Just Film Festival and ECFA (European Children's Film Association)

Speakers: Jorge Cuchi, Maciej Jakubczyk, Kätriin Helena Huttunen
Moderator: Per Eriksson
