Kids Kino Lab – script development workshop


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.

12 teams (producer + scriptwriter) will be developing their projects from a short synopsis to the advance 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 with invited guests and experts from the fields of scriptwriting, distribution, sales and many others. The programme of the ongoing edition which will end in September can be found here.


Individual and group work


The teams will be divided into three script development groups lead by one of our Script Tutors: Kirsten Bonnen Rask, Armin Prediger, Philip LaZebnik.

Producers from each Team will have a chance to work on the development of their projects under the supervision of Ronald Kruschak, our Producers’ Tutor.
