The Junior Co-production Market is an integrated 2-day co-production market that enables financiers, broadcasters and producers to assess new and innovative 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 Junior Co-production Market took place on 22 and 23 October 2015 in Amsterdam. Please find the selected film, television and cross-media projects below.
The deadline for submitting projects to the 2016 edition of the Cinekid Junior Co-Production Market is July 1st, 2016. It will be possible to submit your projects from the 1st of June.
There are three awards up for grabs in 2015. First of all, the Cinekid Power to the Pixel Prize will be handed out to the best children’s project (as chosen by Cinekid) at the Power to the Pixel Market and Lab in London. The project will receive automatic selection for the Junior Co-production Market.
Secondly, the renewed Cinekid for Professionals Best Project Award (€2.500 cash prize) for best overall project will be handed out during the JCM.
Thirdly, the prestigious Eurimages Co-Production Development Award for the co-production, distribution, exhibition and digitisation of European cinematographic works will be handed out for the second time. 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. The winners of the CfP Best Project Award and the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award will be announced Friday 23 October.
