Warsaw Kids Film Forum is delighted to announce the full selection of projects to be presented during the Forum in September. This year we were overwhelmed with 75 applications from 22 different countries from which the 36 projects were chosen to be part of Pitching and Script Exchange sessions.
Filmmakers of the selected projects will have the opportunity to present their work in front of the International and Polish Decision Makers which includes distributors, sales agents,TV broadcasters, producers, film institutes and funds.
This year we have diverse country representation. The selection includes projects from 13 different regions including: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, India, Israel, La-tvia, Macedonia, Netherlands, Poland, RSA, UK and Ukraine. We believe in the high quali-ty of presentations, since among the titles to be pitched there are ones produced by Oscar® winning production company Opus Film from Poland or famous South African Trig-gerfish Animation Studios.
Sessions during the Forum are divided into three groups: Projects in Development, Works in Progress and the new event - Script Exchange. First two will be given a chance for a public pitching in front of Decision Makers. The Script Exchange, in collaboration with Script Fiesta Festival, is an opportunity to present projects by writers and directors, who are looking for a producer.
Presented projects are competing for four awards:
CeTA Awards - Audiovisual Technology Center (Centrum Technologii Audiowizualnych CeTA) will award 2 projects with production and post production services at CeTA studios for a total amount of PLN 160.000.
EAVE Award - European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs will be granting an invitation to the EAVE Marketing workshop in autumn 2018 in Luxembourg.
The Financing Forum for Kids Content Award - The Financing Forum For Kids Content (Malmö, Sweden). The Forum will award the best pitch by giving the producers an invita-tion to present the project in Malmö in March 2019.

Warsaw Kids Film Forum is an international pitching forum for films and television series aimed at the children’s market. Our goal is to create a meeting place where Eu-ropean professionals can exchange ideas, experiences and develop new content for chil-dren.
