Cinekid is an international festival of film, television and new media aimed at young people aged 4 to 16. Held in the heart of Amsterdam, the festival screens new children's films, television programmes and new media productions at de Balie and on the seven screens of Pathé City in the Leidseplein.
In addition to watching the films, children can try out the latest interactive games and CD ROMs in a hall filled with computers and actively participate in cross-media workshops.
Founded in 1987 as a small four-day local festival, Cinekid is now a major event. The festival awards prizes for best films and TV shows, and there's a new media award for CDs and websites. It also organises seminars concerning subjects of national and international importance in the area of media for the young.
