We’re currently accepting project submissions from producers operating anywhere in Asia or Australasia other than Australia, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, which are covered by our screen agency partners.
Check out our Wild Card Eligibility Criteria and detailed instructions for preparing project submission packages. You can send them to Kidscreen Publisher Jocelyn Christie (firstname.lastname@example.org) until Friday, September 8.
