Kids Kino Industry
Kids Kino Industry is a part of Kids Kino International Film Festival. Together with Kids Kino.Lab, a script development workshop, it creates a wide range of initiatives to support the film industry’s development, production and dissemination of quality kids content.
Each year, there are around 25 projects in development and work in progress presented at the forum with 1-2 projects presented at the market presentation section.
Annually, the event is attended by more than 200 guests. Our Decision Makers and investors are looking for the most promising projects. In previous years, the forum brought together industry representatives working for established companies, such as Netflix, ViacomCBS, Arri, Indie Sales, New Europe Film Sales, LevelK, TVP, KiKa, RTV Slovenija, Windrose, Platige Image, Beta Film, Film Republic, Canal+ Polska.
The pitchings and 1:1 meetings are the main core of the programme of Kids Kino Industry. However, the four-day programme offers a number of masterclasses, case studies, consultations, panels, networking opportunities, and many others.
