Kids Kino International Film Festival is one of the largest events of this type in Poland, dating back to 2014. It takes place every year, in September and October, in Warsaw, Wrocław, and a number of other towns and cities. This is also its third online edition!
The festival is attended by 65,000 people every year. Its highlights are the premieres of films from Poland and other countries addressed to viewers from the age of 4. The films from the Main Competition go into theatrical distribution within a year from the festival and they form a part of our educational activities.
The programme of the festival consists of feature films, short films, animations, documentaries, and live-action films. The event is accompanied by meetings with filmmakers, expert introductions to films, screenings with live music, unique guided tours, creative workshops, and a variety of online resources (such as interviews with creators or creative workshop tutorials).
The idea behind the festival is to give the audience access to quality films of high educational, artistic, and production value. The films taking part in the competitions are evaluated by a jury comprised of industry representatives, journalists, artists specialised in children’s culture, and film experts. Every year, Audience Award is granted as part of the Main Competition.
In this year’s edition of the festival, there are almost 160 films in 12 sections, out of which 3 are competition sections. The films will compete for awards in the Main Competition, Discoveries Competition, and Short Documentaries Competition.
The 9th Kids Kino IFF will take place from the 24th of September to the 2nd of October in 29 cinemas in 20 towns and cities. Then, from the 6th to the 23rd of October, selected films from the programme will be available online, on the festival website.
