Zarafa and Legends of Valhalla Thor

Set to be held March 7-9 in Lyon, France this year, the organizers of the Cartoon Movie event, have revealed their animated feature selections. The 50 selected titles will screen for producers and distributors from 17 countries during the event—among them the well hyped Zarafa (Remi Bezancon & Jean-Christophe Lie, France), Wrinkles (Ignacio Ferreras, Spain) and Legends of Valhalla: Thor (Oskar Jonasson & Toby Genkel, Iceland).

A young Egyptian boy and his beloved animal friend a baby giraffe on an incredible journey from Sudan to Paris. Zarafa, produced by Prima Linea Prod. Pathe Int’l is handling distribution of the film, which launches in France February 5. From Perro Verde and Cromosoma, Wrinkles (Arrugas) is based on the popular graphic novel by Paco Roca which explores the challenges of Alzheimer’s in the context of a budding friendship between two elderly men in a care home. Wrinkles arrives in Spanish theaters February 27. Legends of Valhalla: Thor is a 3-D family adventure that makes history as Iceland’s first animated feature and centers on a heroic teen charged with saving his village from a horde of giants. Set for release in Denmark, Norway and the Netherlands, Thor opened in its native country last fall.
