Junior Co-production Market


The submissions for the 2017 edition of the Cinekid Junior Co-production Market is now open. Find more information here

The Junior Co-production Market is an integrated two-day co-production market that enables financiers, broadcasters and producers to assess new and innovative children's projects across the cross-media, film and television sectors.

The integrated market reflects the high degree of interactivity and potential for cross-financing across these sectors. All the projects will be presented within a unique and nurturing environment designed to encourage international cooperation. The market starts with a public pitch of all the projects followed by one and a half days of one-on-one meetings. The upcoming Junior Co-production Market will take place on 26 and 27 October 2017 in Amsterdam. Please find the selected film, television and cross-media projects of the 2016 edition below.



There were two awards up for grabs in 2016. Firstly, the renewed Cinekid for Professionals Best Project Award (€2.500 cash prize) for best overall project was handed out during the Junior Co-production Market. 

Secondly, the prestigious Eurimages Co-production Development Award for the co-production, distribution, exhibition and digitisation of European cinematographic works was handed out. This prize of €20.000 in cash can be used by the award-winner for the development expenses of their project. To be eligible, projects must be aiming for cinema release, and must be designed as a European co-production between at least two member states of the Eurimages Fund for reasons other than purely financial.
