Cinekid throws open biz program

Conference includes sesh on 3D toon pre-vis

BRUSSELS — Amsterdam’s Cinekid fest has opened up its professional program, moving away from invitation-only expert discussions to a broader two-day conference.

Topics covered on Oct. 27-28 include animated pre-visualization, augmented story telling and scripting for young audiences.

Pre-visualization session will include a sneak peek at Pascal Herold’s stereo 3D animated feature “Cinderella.” Other speakers include visual effects mavens Pawl Fulker and Kevin Tod Haug.

Also speaking at the conference are screenwriter David Freeman, focusing on Pixar, and Marie-Louise Mares of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who will present work on how kids view TV.

Conference will be followed by a masterclass on transmedia storytelling by Jeff Gomez, of Starlight Runner Ent., who will also lead a “transmedia bootcamp” training session.

International events are accompanied by a program aimed at Dutch professionals and the fest’s usual film, TV and cross-media co-production markets.

Main fest unspools Oct. 20-29, but opened early on Oct. 13 with Simone van Dusseldorp’s “Briefgeheim.” Pic concerns an 11-year-old girl who tries to thwart a criminal gang.

Fest’s international prizes are joined this year by new audience and jury awards for the best Dutch film for children under 14 years of age.

Fest says the awards have become possible because of a rise in the volume and quality of Dutch kid pics, thanks partly to government support for the sector.
