Anima’s feature film project Fleak was selected to be pitched at Cartoon Movie 2018. Producer Antti Haikala travelled to Bordeaux, France to present the project to the audience consisting of movie industry professionals.
Fleak is a fantasy adventure animation feature about Lauri, a 12-year-old boy who loses his ability to walk, but gains a friendly creature from another dimension – and together they have to save both their worlds from a Shadow monster. Told from a child’s perspective, this powerful story shows how imagination and a kind heart can help overcome resentment.
“Cartoon Movie is neither a fair nor a festival, but rather a pitching & co-pro forum for animated feature films. For two days, producers have the opportunity to pitch their film project in order to speed up financing, find co-producers and interest international distributors.”
