Cinekid Festival collaborates with MCW Expertise Centre by having BA students (MEC, CIW and TCS) produce short audio-visual interview items, as part of the course Practical Film and Media Culture.

During the festival week, they interviewed several makers of international productions in film programming. Directors, producers, screenwriters and young actors are interviewed about their work and followed during their visit to the festival. The result is displayed on the Youtube channel of Cinekid and the raw material is archived. In its 30-year existence Cinekid has had several debuting makers and guest actors who are now internationally known. This festival hopes to build an archive of unique material of its international guests. Students who participated in this assignment thus were prepared to become a trainee in Social Media to work for the next festival edition Cinekid.
