For many years now one of the leading countries in high quality films for young audiences are the Netherlands. Therefore it is no surprise that most awards at this year's Cinekid Filmfestival in Amsterdam went to domestic productions.
(25.10.2014) The experts' jury selected „Life According to Nino“ by Simone van Dusseldorp (NL, 2014) as best film for children and „Jongens“ by Mischa Kamp (NL, 2014) as best film for families. The audience award for the best film for families went to
”Rhubarb” by Mark de Cloe (NL, 2013), while „Felix“ by Roberta Durrant was the audience's favourite among the films for children. This film also the children's jury has selected as their winner.
A special mention the experts' jury had for “Natural Sciences” by Matías Lucchesi, Argentine, 2014; their award for the best best short European animated film went to “Pitt and Weem” by Nigel Cutler, Great Britain, 2014.
