Amsterdam isn’t just for grownups; the annual Cinekid Festival of film and television is aimed at children under 16 years of age. Located in the heart of Amsterdam the festival features premieres of children's feature films, cartoons and lots of television shows.
Each year the ten-day event is attended by over 50,000 children and 2011 is a special year as it marks the 25th anniversary of The Cinekid Festival. Lots of extra events have been lined up to celebrate the occasion.
As well as cartoon and feature film screenings, the festival is very hands on. Kids can test some of the latest interactive games and get involved in a series of fun and interesting media workshops.
The festival awards prizes for best films and TV shows, and this year there are new awards for music and websites. It’s a fun day out for all the family in one of Europe’s most celebrated cities. The
