Nordisk Film & TV Fond is joining forces with UK cross-media company Power to the Pixel to collaborate on developing six pre-selected Nordic cross-media projects for children.

The collaboration will include two events: The High Five Power to the Pixel Lab, Nov 17-19 in Copenhagen, a residential workshop with international experts; and The High Five Power To The Pixel Forum, March 14-16 in Malmo, a seminar and pitching/finance forum.

Liz Rosenthal, founder of Power to the Pixel said: “High Five Kids is an essential new development scheme. Power to the Pixel is excited to be working with Nordisk Film & TV Fond and Nordic companies on this innovative new project that explores powerful new ways to tell stories, package finance and engage with young audiences in an ever-evolving on-demand digital world”.

Hanne Palmquist, CEO of Nordisk Film & TV Fond, added: “The concept of High Five Kids really thrills me. We do not “only” offer a development grant but also a unique process of development on top. That Power to the Pixel are joining us means that the six selected Nordic projects and the industry as such will get world class guidance in the complex field of cross media”.

Applications are due Sept 6.
