Professionals programme

Industry Forum

During Cinekid’s Industry Forum, 45 professionals from the field of children’s media from all over the world share their ideas and tips & tricks with you.

During a series of 40-minute sessions they talk about the development of their projects, how pitfalls were avoided and how the right roads were taken. From diverse backgrounds, these experts offer their own take on, and experiences within, children’s media – from creation to distribution, from slow media to transmedia. Enter the dialogue and get an exclusive insight into these super-creative minds and their working practices.
