About Cinekid Junior Co-Production Market:

The Junior Co-production Market is an integrated two-day co-production market that enables financiers, broadcasters and producers to assess new and innovative children's projects across the film and television sectors.

The integrated market reflects the high degree of interactivity and potential for cross-financing across these sectors. All the projects will be presented within a unique and nurturing environment designed to encourage international cooperation. The market starts with a public pitch of all the projects followed by one and a half days of one-on-one meetings.

Call for projects:

Work-in-progress section: Next to 20 film and TV projects in development, the market also accepts up to 5 film and TV projects for the work-in-progress section. Parallel to the pitch and pre-scheduled meetings, they have the opportunity to screen their works and invite fellow professionals to attend the screening to receive feedback and attract potential partners. Projects that pitched at Cinekid before are welcome to submit their project again for this new section.

The final selection consist of maximum 25 projects:
a. 20 projects in the film- and TV section.
b. 5 projects in the work-in-progress section.

  • Submissions can be feature length film projects or TV/serial/episodic projects, and can either be fiction, documentary, animation and live-action as crossover projects for an audience of 3-14 years old.
  • Submitted projects need to have 10% of the financing in place, and a confirmed production company in the country of origin.
  • A draft of the script must be available upon request.
  • For works-in-progress: (rough) material available should not be less than 8 minutes long and there should be a teaser from the film or TV production.

The following information needs to be submitted:
Project information:
i. Logline (max 50 words)
ii. Synopsis (max 500 words)
iii. Treatment (max 10 A4 pages)
iv. Director’s statement (max 500 words) (if applicable)
v. Producer's statement (max 500 words)
vi. If applicable; cross-media strategy
vii. Still(s) or visual reference(s)

During the market, the prestigious Eurimages Co-production Development Award for the co-production, distribution, exhibition and digitisation of European cinematographic works is handed out. This prize of €20.000 in cash could be used by the award-winner for the development expenses of their project. To be eligible, projects must be aiming for cinema release and must be designed as a European co-production between at least two member states of the Eurimages Fund for reasons other than purely financial.

Since Cinekid 2019, a new award has been added: the Filmmore Post-Production Award. This award is designed to stimulate collaboration with the Dutch Visual Effects & Post Production lab Filmmore. Granting the award, which comes with a €5,000 prize, is an invitation to start a long and fruitful collaboration with Filmmore.
