Kids & Docs
The Kids & Docs Workshop has started: talented filmmakers are working on short docs for kids - to be screened at IDFA in the future. The issues they portray are all but childish. Watch a selection of workshop-results from the past (for free), like Danny's Parade.
During the workshop (which is co-hosted by Cinekid), a fine selection of talented directors will develop a film plan together with and supported by more experienced colleagues, finishing end of May. The outcome will be a fifteen minutes doc for kids. The films produced are of mature quality: a substantial part of the over seventy films made over the past years has traveled around the world and received awards on its way.
The films have not only been screened at festivals but have also been broadcasted. And from 2011 onwards, workshop-documentaries have been put online (Zappechtgebeurd.nl), for example, The Hideout by workshop leader Astrid Bussink, who won the main award at the Netherlands Film Festival in 2013.
And we have made a fine selection of workshop results about a great variety of topics: broken families, coming out and feeling trapped, eating meat, overcoming fear, autism and intuition and about dreaming big.
