Although the first edition of Kids Kino Docs is not over yet, we are happy to welcome the participants selected to the second edition of the workshop for documentary filmmakers.
Both editions are overlapping. In March, during the last round of first edition and the third round of the second edition we will all meet in Poland. It will give us an opportunity to exchange experiences and thoughts on how to make documentary films for kids and young audiences.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, and first, have a closer look on our newcomers from the second edition.
Yesterday for the very first time we have met six filmmakers from Norway and Poland who will be working on their projects under the guidance of Kirsten Bonnén Rask and Paweł Ziemilski.
Projects and our participants:
- Armed with Drums, Øyvind Aamli, feature film, Norway
- Elliot, Maida Hals Eirheim, series (and/or full-length film), Norway
- How a Human Works, Małgorzata Wabińska, mid-length film, Poland
- A Layup, Olga Papacz, short film, Poland
- We Keep Them in Our Hearts, Cecilie Bjørnaraa (in place of Julie Engaas who will join us during the next round), short film, Norway
- The World According to Jędrek, Aleksandra Bielska, short film, Poland
The programme of this round consists not only of group work with the tutors, but also screenings and masterclasses with Line Hatland, director of “Kids Cup” and Christina Ramsø Thomsen, Commissioning Editor at New Danish Screen.
The first round of the second edition of Kids Kino Docs takes place on 13-16 October in Poland.
