Some of the world’s best movies for children and teenagers will be screened in Warsaw during this year’s Kino w trampkach (Cinema in Sneakers) film festival, which is being held in the city for the second time and is targeted at pint-sized audiences.

The festival program includes movies from recent years that have won awards at international film festivals targeted at young viewers such as the Giffoni festival in Italy, the Zlin festival in the Czech Republic, Cinekid in the Netherlands and the Generation section of the Berlinale festival in Berlin, Germany. Some of the movies will be shown in Poland for the first time. A vast majority of them will not make it to mainstream Polish cinemas. The organizers say Kino w trampkach is “an event that aims to promote intelligent, passionate and thought-provoking films designed for younger audiences.”

The first Kino w trampkach festival, held last year, was hugely successful. It was named a cultural highlight of the year by Poland’s Gazeta Wyborcza daily newspaper. The festival was also nominated by Gazeta Wyborcza for its Co jest grane - Wdechy 2013 (What’s On—Awesome 2013) culture awards in the Event of the Year category. This award is given out to the most important artistic accomplishments in a given year, with a view to promoting local initiatives and rewarding people with bright ideas.

This year’s festival will last from Sept. 20-28 and the movies will be screened in the Iluzjon and Praga theaters. The festival program also includes numerous workshops where young people will be able to learn how to interpret and evaluate movies in terms of quality.
