Docs for Kids

One World cares about the smallest audiences, and therefore presents films for children in its Docs for Kids category. These are short dubbed films that acquaint children with their peers from around the world and their daily problems, opening possibilities to draw inspiration or discover new topics and contexts. The films are part of the morning screenings for schools, and you can also see them during the Screenings for Parents with Children.
