6th KinoKino program presented!
The festival tailored for our youngest audience, the International film festival for children – KinoKino, will have its special, sixth edition within ZFF. This year’s festival program was presented by Selma Mehadžić: “When we launched KinoKino in 2016, the main goal was to present the rich selection of international feature films for children, which there are far too few in regular cinemas, but also to provide a special and different cinema experience for our youngest audience in order to encourage new generations of audiences and future film lovers.”
KinoKino’s main competition program features the most prominent new children’s films from all over the world, and there will also be new editions of the side programs — the selection of short feature films I Discover Every Day and the popular program First Time at the Cinema (FTATC), a block of animated films intended for preschool children who are introduced to moving images on the big screen for the first time.
The feature film program contains as many as four films from Scandinavia, among which the Norwegian film Sisters – The Summer We Found Our Superpowers, an epic journey of two sisters in search of their father injured in the mountains, stands out with the most festival awards. Simultaneously with Zagreb, Any Day Now from the main program will be screening across Croatia in the ZFF Travels program.
The best films of the 6th KinoKino will be decided, as every year, by a professional and children’s jury, while the audience will determine the winner of the audience award. This year’s professional jury consists of actress Iva Babić, director Saša Ban and professor and expert on children’s literature Dubravka Zima, while the children’s jury are Zagreb elementary school students Jan Nikola Baš, Sara Čolaković, Marta Mikac, Ursula Pavić, and Rita Vukmirović.
