Do you want to be a director for one day?

This is your opportunity to be a director for a day during our Ask Your Audience Project at Cinekid for Professionals. Do you want to help us and the creators of the coolest new children’s content, by advising, explaining, and telling what you want to see? We are looking for English speaking kids between the ages of 4 to 12 years old.

Cinekid is looking for children who would like to be part of our ‘Ask your Audience’ session. During Cinekid for Professionals, we provide international professionals with the opportunity to present their children’s film or series in development to the target audience. The representatives will present their project and ask the children for their opinion. This is a unique opportunity for the creators to see how the audience reacts to their project and to find out what works. And a very special opportunity for kids to influence the outcome of these future films and series!

What are we looking for?
We are looking for English-speaking participants for different focus groups between the ages of 4 and 12.

The sessions will take place during Cinekid for Professionals on Wednesday 20 October and Thursday 21 October in Pakhuis de Zwijger and/or Marineterrein in Amsterdam. The focus groups will be scheduled during these days, and each session will only take approximately 1,5 hours.

How does it work?
Selected professionals present their film or series in development for a small panel of kids, after which they will start a conversation and can ask questions about the story, the themes and anything else related to the project. A moderator will be present during the sessions to guide the conversation and to create a valuable conversation. Most of the representatives will be present on location, where we take the necessary COVID-19 safety measures. Some representatives will join us through a video connection.

What can we offer?

  • Free ticket to a screening at Cinekid Festival & access to the MediaLab.
  • Free access to Cinekid Play during Cinekid Festival
