Perhaps the most recurrent topic throughout the event was how we approach engaging with young people in the first place. It is all well and good developing workshops and events, but without finding a way of establishing communication with target groups these events will invariably fail to reach their potential. Representatives from several institutions brought interesting perspectives to this issue. A particular highlight was Hannah Higginson’s presentation on Rife Magazine, run from the Watershed in Bristol. Rife Magazine is Bristol’s youth-led online platform, which empowers young people with presenting to their own age range events which are taking place in the city. Furthermore, Watershed also runs a film programming scheme, geared toward encouraging young people to broaden their cinematic horizons. This type of scheme was also discussed by Florian Deleporte of Studio des Ursulines in Paris, who organises a youth panel that view and critically discuss films, with the end result being a season curated by the group. Consulting and co-creating events with young people, and allowing them to make the address, struck me as an effective way of overcoming some of the barriers that exist in a broad sense between one generation and the next, but also specifically in terms of generating interest in film heritage.
