About the Best Children’s Film Award at Cinekid
Of the hundreds of feature film entries that Cinekid receives each year from across the world, fifteen are selected for the Best Children’s Film Competition. A jury of five international professionals with a background in film or children’s media deliberate over the Best Children’s Film Jury Award, presented with a Cinekid Lion statuette. At every screening, children in the audience vote for their favourite film in competition. The winner receives the Cinekid Lion for the Best Children’s Film Audience Award.
