4KBK INC is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) with the mission to create a safe and nurturing environment that encourages young artists to develop their talents, cultivate their passion, and share their voices with the world.

The 4KBK Film and Media Festival is a non-profit arts organization designed to nurture and showcase the talents of children with interest in media from all around the world. This festival is For Kids and KIDS AT HEART!


Everything in it is written and/or directed by kids ages 0-17, or written FOR kids ages 0-17.


It's our 2nd Season and boy what a year to plan a film festival. Kids are our priority, which means their welfare is our priority as well. So this year, to ensure the safety of our kids and families, the 4KBK Film and Media Festival will be held completely online. We are partnering with Xerb TV to bring you the best Film and Media festival this year! There will still be screenings, Q&A's, Awards....and more!


And with the festival being completely online, everyone will be able to watch from, your mom, your great Aunt Matilda, that barista that spells your name wrong every time on the cup...EVERYONE!


We love kids. We love what kids do. And we love kids who do film. So if your kid writes and directs, we want to see their stuff! Short films, music videos, unboxing videos, webseries, spoken word, TikToks...let’s see it! We are looking for content that is FOR Kids or BY Kids!
