BUSTER’s Pan-Nordic Children’s Media Conference and Industry Days are held annually in October. The objective is to promote collaboration and knowledge exchange among professionals in the film and media industry. BUSTER aims to inspire the Nordic film and media sector by highlighting the latest trends, the most recent knowledge, and best hands-on cases that define the future of children’s media industry.

We are here to serve the industry and help creators and professionals connect, learn from the academic world, get inspired and co-create together. Our mission is to create a dynamic platform for the children’s media and film industry, where storytelling and business intersect. We strive to foster a vibrant environment that offers invaluable networking opportunities. Our goal is to facilitate meaningful partnerships that go beyond boundaries and inspire innovative collaboration.

Industry Days combine the Pan-Nordic Children’s Media Conference, the NoJSe Think Tank and various networking activities.

Every year, BUSTER hosts a Pan-Nordic Children's Media Conference during its festival. The conference's activities revolve around an annual theme and focus on film and media content for children and young people, aiming to enhance the collaboration and innovation within the Nordic industry in this field.
