Wanted: English Speaking Children

Cinekid is looking for children who would like to be part of the Test&Pitch with Kids focus groups.

Cinekid for Professionals is an international industry event during the Cinekid Festival in October that brings together TV buyers, producers, distributors, directors, networks, sales agents, entertainment companies, academics and journalists who maintain a laser focus on children’s media.

During the Cinekid for Professionals programme, we give industry professionals the chance to pitch their children’s projects to a group of international (English-speaking) children. They will show clips and ask children for their opinion. This is a unique opportunity to see how children react to the projects and to hear and see what they think. The children can be directors for a day, and may very well have a big influence on the final outcome of the project!

Test&Pitch with Kids will be moderated by Lisa Wade, presentator of the well-known TV programmes Het Klokhuis, and 13 in de Oorlog.

 

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?


We are looking for participants for different focus groups in the following age categories.

Focus group 1: 4 - 6 years

Focus group 2: 6 - 10 years

Focus group 3: 10 - 12 years

As the children will be in a small group it’s important that they are comfortable and can openly speak and share their opinion in an unfamiliar environment.  


WHEN WILL THE EVENT TAKE PLACE?


Test&Pitch with Kids will take place on Friday 27 October 2017 at the Westergasterrein, in Amsterdam. Each focus group will join for a 30 minutes session.


WHAT do WE OFFER?


Children get to be the director for a day and give their opinion on projects in development and  work in progress projects. Besides that, we will offer the participant + one of their parents/supervisors a free ticket to the Medialab and a Film or Television screening on Friday 27 October.

 

HOW CAN YOU APPLY?


If your child is interested in participating, or if you have any further questions, please email Nasztazia Potapenko at professionals@cinekid.nl with the subject Test & Pitch with Kids.
