Today the Online Edition of KinoKino Starts!
Today the 5th edition of KinoKino begins, a festival made for children, which will be held entirely online on the kinoeuropa.hr platform for the first time.
The festival begins on Monday, November 9 with the film Too Far Away by director Sarah Winkenstette and lasts until Sunday, November 15. The entire program of the festival is held online, and spectators from all over Croatia can enjoy the films from the program with purchased online tickets.
Although we will not see each other in person and talk about films in the cinema, we have prepared a rich film and workshop program for you and we invite you to take the opportunity and join us in front of your screens in your homes.
In addition to the six titles competing for awards given by professional and children’s juries and the Audience Award, in the Classic program we are showing a film that many generations grew up with, Train in the Snow by Mate Relja. This adventure for all ages will be shown as an inclusive screening organized in cooperation with the inclusive audio-visual program of the Filmaktiv association and the Association of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County – Film svima.
The most popular accompanying program of the festival, First Time at the Cinema, will also have its online edition, which will be transformed into My First Online Festival this year. Intended for our youngest audience of 3 years and older, it brings a selection of short animated films without dialogue to your homes.
In order to fill the festival time not only with fun but also with learning, Čejen Černić Čanak, director of the successful film sequel about the adventures of the boy Koko, The Mystery of Green Hill, will hold a workshop called Second Step in Filmmaking, where she and last year’s participants of the workshop First Step in Filmmaking will continue working on the story they have chosen for further development last year. While in cooperation with the Croatian Audiovisual Centre, an interactive panel called School Video Library in the New Normal will be held, intended as a joint meeting of members of the audio-visual and educational sector with the aim of articulating all key aspects of the issue of availability of quality films for children and young people and methodological materials for teachers in the online environment”.
Viewers from all over Croatia can enjoy the online edition of KinoKino, but this year KinoKino is once again traveling to cinemas from the Cinema network.
