Kids Kino Lab is an international script development programme dedicated to scriptwriters and producers who are interested in developing films or series (live-action, animation or documentary) for kids and youth.
During nine months, 12 teams (producer + scriptwriter) work on their projects from a short synopsis to the advanced draft of the script together with production basics (estimated budget, financing and promotion plan). The programme of the Kids Kino Lab is enriched with sessions where invited guests and experts from the fields of scriptwriting, distribution, sales and many others, share their experience and knowledge.
7th edition of Kids Kino Lab consists of four on-site group sessions and online consultations with the lead Tutors. Each session of the workshops takes place during a film festival for children or an industry event. The programme ends with a pitching held at Kids Kino Industry forum which gives participants an immediate opportunity to find a co-producer, sales agent or distributor for their projects..
