    A 270 guests attended the sixth edition of the Warsaw Kids Film Forum, a three-day international industry event running through 27 September 2019. The number of attendees has grown by some 30%, thanks in large part to a new sponsorship from FNE and Central European Initiative (CEI). A total of 27 projects representing 15 countries were pitched, along with one special Polish work-in-progress presentation. Seven of the projects are Polish productions or coproductions, but the forum is clearly an international event with industry representatives from across Europe and Canada.
