Kids & Docs has started again

The Kids & Docs workshop, which aims to develop doc-making talent within the children’s sector, has started again! The workshop is organised by Cinekid and the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), with the support of the NPOfund and is run in association with the Dutch public broadcasters and youth TV station Zapp.

During the two month workshop, six highly talented filmmakers are given support to develop a film plan for a children’s documentary with a maximum duration of 15 minutes. The starting point for all these documentaries is the way children experience the world. Over this period the doc-makers will work closely with all the participating broadcasters.

Applications for financial support to facilitate the development of the documentary plans must be submitted to NPOfund (NPOfonds) by the 23rd of May.

The documentaries will premiere at the Cinekid Festival in October and/or IDFA in November 2017 (provided they are completed in time) before eventual broadcast on Zapp.
