The web series KATWALK has been selected for Best Dutch fiction Series competition at Cinekid Festival (15th– 30th of October).
KATWALK is about the young Muslim woman Khadjia, whose dream it is to become a model. She ends up in the turbulent arena of the fashion industry, which contrasts with the world of Amsterdam-West where she grew up. The series shows how a young woman with a bi-cultural background maneuvers between the conflicting expectations of those two environments. The series is directed by Salma Chafouk Idrissi and written by Zainab Goelaman together with Salma Chafouk Idrissi. KATWALK is a co-production of Topkapi Series and AVROTROS.
With the best Dutch Series Competition, Cinekid presents a selection of the finest Dutch series in the categories Fiction and Non-Fiction for children every year. The festival takes place throughout the Netherlands. The winners of the competition will be announced during the Cinekid Awards on October 25th at the Cinekid Festival.
