Kristiansand International Children’s Film Festival (KICFF) in Norway is now accepting submissions for its 14th edition, held from May 3rd - 8th 2011.
OFFICIAL ENTRY DEADLINE: January 10th 2011
We are looking for quality, innovative features, shorts and documentaries that are suitable for children and young people, including age 14+. The films should be no older than two years at the time of the festival. KICFF is a steadily growing festival of significant national and international importance. In 2010, more than 11 000 tickets were sold to the films in our programmes.
One of the main goals of the festival is to present quality films to Norwegian buyers, in order to obtain distribution of more foreign films for children and young people in Norway. The festival is an important showcase for films from the Nordic countries, but we are also eager to present films from all parts of the World.
