Wishing you a happy, warm and healthy holiday season! Thank you for being with us for the past twelve months. This has been another year to show us that we have a wonderful community of people who recognise the value of creating high-quality cinema for young audiences. Thank you for being a part of that community.

Before we say hello to 2022, we have prepared a brief sum-up of what has happened in 2021. We hope you will enjoy it because those events wouldn’t have been possible without you. Below, you will find a link which is an invitation to create your own Christmas tree ornament in cooperation with Kids Kino Festival, Katarzyna Walentynowicz, and our graphic design studio Homework.

 A joyful festive season and a prosperous new year to all of you!

Sum-up of what happened in 2021:

This year, Kids Kino Industry was held for the first time in a hybrid formula. As always, it accompanied the Kids Kino International Film Festival. The forum was preceded by the last workshop session of the script development programme Kids Kino Lab. For the first time, the forum also featured a session of the new programme for European producers – Producers LINK, a joint initiative of the Kids Kino Industry and the Cinekid for Professionals.

This year’s KKI Talks are now available on our website (watch them!). We are happy to share them with you. Among the topics we discussed were those related to distribution in uncertain times and streaming platforms. We also focused on how to write for young audiences to ensure inclusion and diversity. There were also many talks with creators and case study discussions.

For the sixth time, we had a chance to accompany the creators of films and series for young audiences and watch the development of their projects. Due to the pandemic, the first three sessions of Kids Kino Lab were held online but luckily, the last session combined with pitching was held in Warsaw. We keep our fingers crossed for our participants and hope that the workshop brought them closer to bringing their projects to the screen!

Thank you and see you next year!
