Kids 2-8 to Movie-Going Audiences Nationwide

Kidtoon Films added myKaZootv music videos to its 2012 programming schedule.Kidtoons Films, a Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM) program, brings kid-friendly content to movie-going families every month at hundreds of theater locations nationwide. The first video featured on Kidtoons will be a Farmer Jason video in May on all Kidtoons screens.
“The partnership between myKaZoo and Cinedigm is a natural fit,” said Debbie Dunn, Account Director, Kidtoons. “We show the best in age-appropriate entertainment at our Kidtoons weekend matinees and we know that our Kidtoons families will enjoy the great music videos from MyKaZootv artists such as Farmer Jason.”
myKaZootv is an always-on, interactive multi-channel video platform, broadcasting music videos for children, with features that make it better than television. Beginning with an online presence offered free to parents and kids, the channel will soon be accessible via handheld devices (phone and tablet platforms) and cable television. The channel offers parents and kids a safe, focused environment showing hundreds of entertaining music videos by top artists, kid hosts and humorous educational interstitials, all organized by topic and artist and easily selected by young viewers.
“We see so much potential in our partnership with Kidtoons,” says Richard Ellis, Partner at myKaZootv. “There are hundreds of independent children’s artists around the country making great music and videos with little coordinated access to national publicity, marketing and distribution. “Kidtoons will help us to provide them with an additional, very valuable, touchpoint to the audience – a touchpoint with definite cachet.”
