Films about a region can have the purpose to tell about its natural, cultural, or industrial features while also aiming to involve young people in the life of their home region and promoting professions that are specific to the region's economy. How to support making a film more than a cultural event? What can regional cultural and economic institutions capitalize on to improve youth outreach and make the region attractive?
