12 Projects Selected for Cinekid Script LAB

cinekid-150

The 4th edition of Cinekid Script LAB — taking place this October in Amsterdam and Berlin — will be welcoming 14 writers from seven different countries to develop their 12 selected children’s film scripts. This year marks the first time that an open call was issued alongside relying on nominations by partner institutes.

LAB participants will work with internationally acclaimed advisors who will push them to their creative limits. The coaching offered to each filmmaker is tailor-made and will address the needs of both the writer and the story across the LAB’s two-phased trajectory. The first stage will take place prior to Cinekid for Professional in Amsterdam, where participants can begin to position their projects in the international marketplace. Phase two will take participants to the 2018 Berlinale film market.

Script LAB is is supported by Creative Europe MEDIA Program and organized in close collaboration with international partner organisations, such as the Flanders Audiovisual Fund, the Finnish Film Foundation, the Icelandic Film Center, the Netherlands Film Fund, the Norwegian Film Institute and the Swedish Film Institute.
