HistoryEdit

The festival's roots go back to local reviews of animation and children's films organised in Poznań since 1963.[3][4][5] In 1969 [1] it became a national and soon an international children's cinema and television competition, held every two years (later, every four years) during winter holidays for schools. A theme song in the 1980s was "Czekamy na filmy" sung by children band from Poznań; Łejery.

It became formally a festival in 1994; since 1995 under the auspices of International Centre of Films for Children and Young People.[6]

Until 2005 it took place in June. In 2006 it was moved to December and has been held then ever since.

The festival is divided in two sections: national and international. The movies are judged by a professional jury, children's jury and youths' jury in different categories (feature movies and short movies; for children and youths). Each of them assigning separate awards.

Since 2002 a non-competitive part, of an informative character is held, as well.

Since 2015, the Festival has been accompanied by AleKinomaniacs - characters created by Jan Kallwejt.
