We are happy to announce the participants who will take part in the second edition of the Kids Kino Docs, documentary development programme.
The aim of the programme is to support the development of documentary films and series for young audiences which will contribute to the growing popularity of documentary films for young viewers among filmmakers as well as the audience.
As part of the 15 months’ programme, 6 participants from Poland and Norway will be working on developing their projects in an international community under the guidance of our tutors, Kirsten Bonnén Rask and Paweł Ziemilski, and documentary film professionals.
The programme focuses on documentary projects for young viewers which are at the development and pre-production stage. The participants will work on improving the ideas, collecting documentation, preparing for filming, filming itself, and, finally, editing. The four workshop rounds will take place in Poland and Norway.
