Cinekid is a ten-day festival focused on Film, Television and New Media for children aged 3-14. Cinekid is held during the autumn holiday in Westergas in Amsterdam and in almost 40 other cities throughout the country, drawing some 65,000 visits. The public programme consists of film and TV screenings and the 1200 m2 MediaLab full of media workshops and installations.
There is also a professional programme for the international industry, which is coordinated by Cinekid for Professionals. This five-day event takes place during the second half of the Cinekid Festival, and is the ultimate meeting place for professionals from the international children’s media industry. It draws a great many visitors from around the world, such as producers, directors, sales agents, distributors, film and TV purchasers, journalists, academics, (game) designers and so forth. The event allows them to establish contact with each other, do business and purchase the most recent productions. In addition, Cinekid for Professionals also organises an inspiring conference and seminar programme with the latest topics in the area of children’s media.
