Warsaw Kids Film Forum. Exchanging industry experience of making films for kids

Warsaw Kids Film Forum is an international pitching forum for films and television series aimed at the children’s market. During the forum there will be; workshops, lectures and meetings about producing films for children; as well as work in progress screenings and one-to-one consultations by script consultants, distributors and sales agents at our One-To-One meetings and Consultant Tables. Between 20 and 24 projects from Poland and Europe will take part in the pitch session, including 8 projects from the “Kids Film Pro” program. Accredited Observers will be able to take part in One-To-One meetings and Consultant Tables with projects at any stage of development.

Warsaw Kids Film Forum will take place from the 27th to the 29th of September 2017, in Warsaw, at the Muranów Cinema during The Kids Film Festival.

Our goal is to create a meeting place where film industries from Central and Eastern Europe, in which creating content for children is in its infancy, can meet with professionals from countries where high quality productions aimed at children are a regular part of the industry. We want to create a space that will be practically helpful; connecting projects with, potential co-producers, distributors and festivals; as well as educational, where the industry can discover the newest trends.

The forum is being organized for the film and media industries in Poland and Europe, with an emphasis on presenting projects from Central and Eastern Europe as well as the Baltic states. We are inviting: producers, writers, directors, distributors, sales agents, funding institutions, as well as others interested in creating culture for children.

Warsaw Kids Film Forum is organized by the Education Department of the New Horizons Association, who has been actively engaging the filmic education of young viewers while distributing quality films for children and teens. Among their most important initiatives are; New Horizons of Film Education, a year round film program for schools; The Kids Film Festival; Kids Films Presents, a distribution program, as well as, The Kids Film Club, an initiative aimed at parents. We support the development of Polish projects for younger viewers aged 4-12 through our yearly Kids Film Pro program.
