More about the Kids Kino Industry

Kids Kino Industry (international co-production forum aimed at children’s content) along with Kids Kino Lab (script development workshop) are the part of Kids Kino International Film Festival, which takes place in September in Warsaw and twenty Polish cities (and online). The Kids Kino IFF, Kids Kino Lab and Kids Kino Industry are organised by New Horizons Association Educational Department – a non-governmental organisation, founded in 2003 by Roman Gutek. Its main objective is the promotion and popularization of unconventional, artistically challenging cinema.

With a new line up of Kids Kino Industry Talks we plan to maintain an exchange hub and create a creative community, providing keynotes on trends, studies, enlightening panels, and best practice presentations in order to hone the producer’s business decisions for children’s content. Our audience are European content producers and distributors focusing on children and youth.
