Cinekid Selects 26 Animated Shorts For 2019 Competition

Cinekid Festival (Amsterdam, Oct. 19-25) has selected 26 animated short films from 19 different countries for the 2019 Best International Animated Short Film Competition. Also, for the first time, the leading children’s media festival is expanding the international shorts program with the Best International Short Live-Action Film Competition — comprising nine promising new films from around the world.

All the international selected titles will have their Dutch premiere at Cinekid Festival, and will be presented in combined programs for different ages, or as preludes to the feature film screenings. Cinekid will also showcase the entire line-up of the animated shorts as a sneak preview at the Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival in the U.K., which takes place September 19-22.

A jury of three film professionals will award the filmmakers of the best shorts from both competitions with a Cinekid Lion Statue and a cash prize of €2,500 each. This year’s jury members are Kirsten Ruber, director of Go Short International Short Film Festival, Thomas Meyer-Hermann, founder of Film Bilder animation studio, and screenwriter and director Julia Thelin (Push It, Tweener).
