For six documentary filmmakers from Poland and Norway, 24 March marked the start of the brand new Kids Kino Docs programme. This extension of the Kids Kino Lab script development workshops has set a clear ambition: creating a space dedicated to documentary films and series for young audiences
The six projects selected for the 1st edition of the Kids Kino Docs programme are:
ANIMAL TAILS, Nora Nivedita Tvedt, feature, Norway
GIRLS’ STORIES, Agnieszka Borzym, feature, Poland
HUNTING DOWN THE BEAST, Geir Bergersen, series, Norway
MY IMAGINARY FRIEND, Ellen Morgenstierne, series, Norway
WHERE’S AFRICA?, Mateusz Miszczyński, mid-length film, Poland
YOUTOPIA, Ewa Galica, mid-length film, Poland
Over a period of 15 months, the programme provides participants with an opportunity to develop their projects in an international community under the guidance of leading tutors Kirsten Bonnén Rask and Pawel Ziemilski.
Kids Kino Docs: “We hope that the programme will contribute to the growing popularity of documentary films for young viewers among filmmakers as well as audiences. On behalf of the Kids Kino Int’l Film Festival, in September, we will invite our audiences to watch documentary films in a new section: Road to the North – Documentaries from Norway. But before that, in June, we will announce the call for the second edition of Kids Kino Docs, in which another 6 documentary filmmakers from Poland and Norway will be invited to take part.”
Kids Kino Docs is organised by the New Horizons Association and the South Norwegian Film Centre.
