“Anna’s World” with two awards at Kids Kino Industry


The project developed within Kids Kino Lab under the supervision of Kirsten Bonnén Rask and Ronald Kruschak received Sardegna Film Commission – Explore Sardegna Pitching Award worth EUR 3.000 and M:brane award which is the invitation to pitch the project at the next edition of the Swedish event.

“Anna’s World” is a documentary series. Each 22’ episode follows 24 hours in the life of Anna, the main character, a 10-year-old girl. Breakfast, going to school, lessons, break, homework, dinner, going to bed. We travel around the world and experience a typical day, but change continents and countries. The only thing that doesn’t change is her name: she’s Anna in Belgium, Japan, Kenya, Iran, Cuba and New Zealand. Through Anna’s eyes, we get to know her world, expose cultural differences, see what we can learn from each other and explore universal themes such as love, climate change, traditions, gender, mourning and religion.

Kids Kino Lab is looking for projects for the next edition


The call for projects for Kids Kino Lab is open with a deadline set on 15 October.

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.

During nine months, 12 teams (producer + scriptwriter) work on their projects from a short synopsis to the advanced 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.

7th edition of Kids Kino Lab consists of four on-site group sessions and online consultations with the lead Tutors. Each session of the workshops takes place during a film festival for children or an industry event.

The programme ends with a pitching presentation held at Kids Kino Industry forum which gives participants an immediate opportunity to find a co-producer, sales agent or distributor for their projects.

Kids Kino Lab is organised by Kids Kino Industry in cooperation with JEF and Zlin Film Festival.
