Family films in Amsterdam

The Cinekid Festival is an annual film, television and new-media festival for children across the Netherlands, attended by more than 50,000 children and (international) guests every year. The festival traditionally takes place at Amsterdam’s Westergas in September or October, around the autumn school holidays.

Alongside films, documentaries, shorts, cartoons, television productions and cross-media productions, there's also a large number of interactive installations and workshops, so fear not: no one will turn into a couch potato here!

In amongst the mix there are loads of premieres, classic films and beautiful shorts, too. But do keep in mind that the selection of screenings is quite international and where subtitles are shown (for older audiences), they are typically in Dutch.
