Cinekid Script LAB is a six-month script-training programme for writers with a children's film project. The training was initiated by Cinekid in 2014 and is gearing up for its sixth edition which will take place during Cinekid for Professionals in October 2019, and the Berlinale 2020. The deadline for entries for Cinekid Script LAB is 3 June.

The event is co-funded by national institutes such as Flanders Audiovisual Fund (BE), Norwegian Film Institute (NO), Swedish Film Institute (SE), Netherlands Film Fund (NL), Icelandic Film Centre (IC) and Finnish Film Foundation (FI).

During the Cinekid Script LAB, an international group of writers and writer/directors will work on their plans for children’s feature films. The programme offers tailor-made coaching and training; it answers to the specific writer’s and story’s needs, along a six-month trajectory.
