Wanted: English speaking kids

Grab your chance and be a director for one day for our Test & Pitch project.

Cinekid is looking for children who would like to be part of Test & Pitch with Kids. During Cinekid for Professionals, we give industry professionals the chance to pitch their children’s film and television projects in development to a group of English speaking children.

The directors will pitch their project along with clips and pictures and ask children for their opinion. This is a unique opportunity for the creators to see how their target audience react to their project and to find out what works and what does not. The children may very well have a big influence on the final outcome of the project!

We are looking for English speaking participants for different focus groups in the following age categories:
Focus group 1: 4- 6 years 
Focus group 2: 6-10 years 
Focus group 3: 10 – 12 years 

We organise two sessions of Test & Pitch with Kids. The programme will take place between Wednesday 23 October and one on Thursday 24 October 2019, in Amsterdam. Each focus group will join for about 1-1,5 hour session, where several projects (maximum of three) will be discussed.

What do we offer?
Children get to be the director for the day and give their opinion on projects in development and projects in work in progress. Besides that, we will offer the participant + one of their parents/supervisors a free ticket to a film or television screening and entrance to our MediaLab during the Cinekid Festival, which takes place from 19-25 October 2019 at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam.

How to apply
If your child is interested in participating, or if you have any further questions, please contact Nasztazia Potapenko through with the subject Test & Pitch with Kids. Please send us the age of your children and the date of availability.
