    • 11.30 Young Adult Audiences11.30- 12.30
      TV series for the youth offer so much more than simple entertainment. The best and most popular series both represent culture and create it all at once. Of course, TV series often mirror the time and era in which they are created, but they also manage to kickstart and amplify significant societal trends. In her presentation, Felicia Jackson, Director of This Festival, will focus on five different generations – from Generation X and onwards. She will deliver a both captivating and entertaining analysis of the symbiotic relationship between the preferred TV series within each generation and the realities they are part of. You will hear about characters – such as Brandon and Brenda from Beverly Hills 90210 as well as Wilhelm and Simon from Young Royals – and learn what five generations’ worth of youth-oriented TV series tell us about the world we all inhabit
