Sign up for Shorts by Kids

Enter the one and only film competition for young filmmakers and win!

Every year, Cinekid Festival offers the most exciting tv series, films and other digital media from all around the world. But there's one thing: almost all of them are made by adults. And we know that kids are just as capable in making amazing films. That's why we started with film competition Shorts by Kids. 

Every year you can send in your self made film. Capture your story like a real documentary, decide what you want to do with a self-written script and actors, or maybe with a homemade animation video. So basically, your options are endless.

If you submit your film for the Shorts by Kids competition, you might get a chance to be selected, which means that your film will be screened in a cinema theater during the Cinekid Festival 2022. During this screening a professionals jury will be present. The winning filmmaker will go home with the Cinekid Shorts by Kids Award!

Are you enthusiastic and 14 years old or younger? Don't wait any longer; record a film with a maximum of 3 minutes, upload it to YouTube or Vimeo and send the link to film@cinekid.nl. Feel free to send your additional questions to.

The deadline is Sunday 2 October.
