Walking with Unimals
What happens if you cross the lion Simba with My Little Pony? You’ll find out in Studio Pointer’s digital world, which is full of all sorts of animal gifs: they mate, eat, fight and make up. You can mix them all up until none of the animals is the same.
Museum of Symmetry
A museum full of colours, shapes and emotions: that is the Museum of Symmetry. In this virtual reality game you can ride on stingrays, in an air balloon or start a party. Paloma Dawkins is known for her fantastical landscapes populated by strange but endearing characters. She makes great and funny games.
Forests are for Trees
You don’t just walk amongst the trees in this special forest: every digital tree trunk is a door to a new forest in a parallel world. Colours change and trees move, but it doesn’t matter. This game is not about achieving goals but is there simply to enjoy. It’s a voyage of discovery!
We are continuously fiddling with our phones and iPads, but do we still know how to relate to each other without a screen? This is what Melanie Bonajo’s TouchMETell, made especially for Cinekid, is all about, using workshop exercises and interviews with children to show the importance of touch.
Abner Preis created a new virtual reality work for Cinekid. Enter one of his space vehicles and explore our media history. You and main protagonist Eden will travel past cave dwellers, Egyptians, the first mega computers and the international space station. Fortunately, Abner Preis’s stories always have a happy ending.

Generativly Modified Objects
With POST NEON you use an iPad to create objects. You add bit code to change the DNA of things and give them new and special properties to change existing things into things you like. You are now the creator instead of the viewer.
What does fruit sound like? What is the sound of the colour yellow? What is the rhythm of apples or lemons? You can find out through smart codes. Studio Krom’s artists show that a fruit bowl is a lot more musical than you might think. Which sounds can you get from apples, pears and bananas?
Ambient Emo Synchronizer
Need some relaxation? With Ambient Emo Synchronizer you’ve come to the right place. Relax with calming videos and choose which one is right for you. Bubbling waterfalls or birdsong? You decide the sound for each video, but what does this reveal about you?
In Sticky Cats you are a sticky cat who loves a bit of fish. Enter the house, steal the fish and leave behind utter chaos.

In Minit, your day only lasts 60 seconds. Travel around to help unusual people, defeat enemies and break the unfortunate curse.

In this surreal walking simulation you walk past audio puzzles, that are inspired bij modular synthesizers and the writer Haruki Murakami.
QT is a lovely game, although you wouldn't say so at first. You have to explore a dark house all alone. Luckily, animated characters soon appear.

Imagine you could be anything you want. Would you turn into a superhero, villain, a famous singer or your pet? It’s all possible in the Filter Factory, where you get to make your own filters. Afterwards, you can take your film and filter home.
What does your planet of the future look like? Will we still have cars or use teleportation? Will we live in floating houses? In the TerraNova workshop, you get to decide by completing challenges. This workshop is held at three locations simultaneously, so all participants work together to design a planet using hands, new technologies and lots of imagination.
Create an animation about a snail that travels all over the world with his small shell. Who does he meet? Does he make any new friends? What obstacles does he have to overcome and how does he make the world a slightly better place? It’s all up to you. Be creative, because anything is possible with animation and stop motion.
Letter to space
In 1974, scientists sent a special message to aliens. This letter was converted into code language, which may be understood by extraterrestrials. At Cinekid, you can write your own code letter to aliens. However, you may have to wait a long time for an answer as it takes roughly 25,000 years before your mail arrives.
