What does JEF do?
A diverse youth film collection broadens the perspective of children and young people, and offers them chances to better define the world they want to live in. Therefore JEF makes youngsters’ cinema available for programmers, and visible and accessible for a broad and diverse audience, as well in an educational as in a leisure time context.
Through its active role as a networking organisation, JEF is a contact point about youth cinema for policy makers and the (inter)national film industry. Here, children and youngsters find a place to create, experience and critically watch film. ‘Through and for young people’ is a central criteria throughout JEF’s work.
