The New Horizons Association (the organiser of the Kids Kino IFF, the Kids Kino Industry co-production forum, and the Kids Kino Lab script development workshops) and the South Norwegian Film Centre (Sornorsk filmsenter) present a new programme: Kids Kino Docs. The first call for projects began on 3rd of January and will run until 7th of February, 2022.
The Kids Kino Docs programme is addressed to filmmakers from Poland and Norway who would like to make documentary films and series for young audiences.
Two calls for projects for the new programme will be organised in 2022. Each of them will result in 6 projects selected to take part in 4 workshop sessions in Poland and Norway and will be developed during the 15 months long programme. Additional plans include shooting sessions, film documentations, and online consultations supervised by the leading tutors, Kirsten Bonnén Rask and Paweł Ziemilski, and international guest experts.
The programme will provide filmmakers with an opportunity to develop their projects in an international community of documentary film professionals. As part of the process, participants will work on a variety of aspects: improving their ideas, collecting documentation, preparing for filming, filming itself, and, finally, editing.
First call for projects: 3rd January – 7th February 2022.

Kids Kino Docs is an extension of the Kids Kino Lab script development workshops, where documentary productions were developed alongside feature and film and series projects. The goal of the new programme is to create a space dedicated to documentary films and series for young audiences.
Kids Kino Docs together with Kids Kino Industry and Kids Kino Lab are the industry events accompanying Kids Kino IFF. Every year, selected film and series projects for young audiences take part in the Kids Kino Lab script development workshop, to be later presented alongside other projects at the Kids Kino Industry co-production forum. The forum is aimed at creating a space to connect filmmakers and their potential business partners to co-work on a project.
The New Horizons Association is a non-governmental organisation whose main objective is to promote and popularise unconventional ambitious arthouse cinematography through organisation of film festivals (New Horizons IFF, American Film Festival, Kids Kino IFF) and educational programmes (The New Horizons of Film Education) as well as running a cinema in Wrocław (Kino Nowe Horyzonty) and film distribution.
The Kids Kino Docs programme is co-financed by the EEA Financial Mechanism and the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
