The 5th edition of The Kids Film Festival will take place from September 22nd to September 30th 2018. The program of this year’s Festival will consist of 130 feature-lenght and short films: the main competition (8 titles, mostly Polish premieres) will compete for the award chosen in the audience poll and by the Juries (journalists and filmmakers). We present also the section called Discoveries which consist of feature-length animations, documentaries, and feature films with special artistic value. With the youngest viewers at its core, the festival is not limited to the presentation of important, thought-provoking and interesting movies for junior audiences (aged 4-12 years). It serves as a platform for exchanging experiences of people dealing with various aspects of children’s culture – creators and animators in the broad sense of the word.
The Kids Film Festival / Festiwal Filmowy Kino Dzieci is organised by Education Department of New Horizons Association, Poland.
We will also return to the movies from the previous edition of the festival. In the Panorama section we will remind these films, which last year won the Grand Jury Prize and gained the highest public recognition.
In 2017 we established Warsaw Kids Film Forum, Poland’s first international pitching forum for films and television series aimed at the children’s market. In September 2018 we’ll come back with the 2nd edition of the Forum. Warsaw Kids Film Forum is a part of industry section of the 5th The Kids Film Festival.
As always we have prepared art workshops, screenings with live music, meetings with guests and contests. We hope that among the films and accompanying events, each of you will find something for yourself.
