Cinekid Conference (10:00 – 18:00)
In the morning the conference programme will feature the latest developments in the film, TV and cross-media sectors. In the afternoon session we will focus on Mobile Applications (the growing trend in product delivery to kids) either attached to existing productions or as a stand-alone project.
Film: French Animation Wave
Back in the earliest days of cinema, the first animated projected film originated from France. Over the past decade French animators have picked up the pace once more. In fact many, if not most, animated films produced in Europe over this period were made in a French studio and (co-) produced by France (and Belgium). Very recently several award-winning French animated films for children have dominated the festival circuit, such as Le Chat Du Rabbin, Couleur De Peau: Miel (English title: Approved for Adoption), Ernest et Célestine and Zarafa, many of which are showing at Cinekid Festival 2012. With acclaimed French animation directors and producers we will discuss the latest developments within the sector, the special 'French animation touch' and the secret behind France's success.

Watch as the world of children’s TV passes before your eyes. Sit back and relax and let Eurodata TV Worldwide update you on the newest children’s programmes worldwide with over 20 new clips as well as ratings analysis and trend reports.

Cross Media
Cross Media or Transmedia is always on the move. We have invited experience strategy producers, who have worked with Pottermore, BBC Worldwide’s Doctor Who, Channel 4 and Warner Brothers, to reveal several examples of best practice and to provide specific tools to improve your Cross Media strategy. In addition, focus will be placed upon understanding and implementing media design so that you can possess the tools and knowhow to empower children to design their own interactive experiences.

Mobile Applications
The Cinekid for Professionals special focus this year is on mobile media. As children from all age groups increasingly turn to apps it is essential that we further explore this new world of mobile applications. What are the design principles within mobile applications and what are differences in app use between different age- groups? Let experienced consultants provide you with tools on how you can actually make money out of your applications, what are the suitable platforms for content, and how to close these deals. Award winning app creators will inform you on the latest and most jaw- dropping apps on (or soon to be on) the market and share best practice on creation and strategy.

DAY 2: (09:30 – 18:00)

Pitch Cross-Media projects Junior Co-production Market
If you register for the Cinekid Experience you will be able to attend the pitch of the cross-media projects of the Junior Co-production Market. The pitch is normally only open to the financiers and producers of the market, however for the Cinekid Experience visitors we can offer you the unique opportunity to attend the pitch of the highly innovative and experienced production companies from all over the world and learn from their latest cross-media projects in developments. 10 Projects in total will be pitched.
(09:30 – 13:00)

Workshop Creative Cross-Media
Cinekid for Professionals will organize a workshop focussed on the creation of cross-media productions during the early stage of development.

Seminar 2nd Screens
Already an immediate sold-out success during the UK Children's Media Conference we now bring the 2nd Screen seminar to Cinekid for Professionals! From 2nd screen ads in the Superbowl breaks to ‘Million Pound Drop’ and beyond: this panel session will bring you up to date on what’s out there and what’s coming soon in this latest area of media innovation. We’ll also ask how 2nd screen will work in the kids’ space? How can broadcasters and producers deal with issues such as moderation, cost and access? Is 2nd screen a holy grail to get kids back in front of the telly or will it just be a side-show (literally!)? Leading content producers will give us access to the creative processes and approaches required to develop apps that work in coordination with live TV. The panel session will be followed by a Q&A. Organized in partnership with the Children’s Media Conference.
(14:00 – 15:30)
