Festival Features
From the latest films in the world to classic masterpieces!

We gather information about the latest well-made films though our strong connections with other international film festivals. At the same time, classic masterpieces such as "Thomas the Tank Engine" and "Shimajiro" will be prepared for kids to enjoy.


Don't worry about Subtitles! All Films will be dubbed before your eyes!

Since there will be kids not old enough to be able to read subtitles, we will be screening films with LIVE voice-over dubbing by actors on stage. The demonstration of films being dubbed on stage will entertain both kids and adults.


Opportunity to Meet with International Guests!

Every year, we welcome prominent guests such as film directors, producers, actors, and festival directors, from all over the world. They will support our festival by being our international juries, holding workshops, and interacting with kids. The kids will be able to interact on a global scale through Q&A and international party.


Enjoyable for all day long! Workshops and Venues are available!

Popular workshops like face paintings, voice actor experience, and paper airplane making will be available for kids and families. You can enjoy the festival all day even when you're not watching movies.


KINEKO juries and teen directors!

The Best Film Award will be chosen by 10 KINEKO juries, who will be elementary kids selected through public applications. We aim to nurture the children's taste for good films. The awarded film will be screened at the Tokyo International Film Festival in October. The KINEKO juries will walk on the red carpet with world-famous film stars!
At the same time, International juries and Japanese film company producers will choose the Teen Film Award. Films will be made and submitted by teenagers between 10-18. The awarded film crews will have a once-in-a life time experience to participate in a film-making camp. This program is a great opportunity to motivate teenagers who aim to be in the film industry.
