Berlinale Generation Kplus title Kiddo has secured sales deals for theatrical releases in France and Belgium.
Sales agent Skoop Media has sold all rights to Les films du Preau for France, and JEF for Belgium, on Zara Dwinger’s feature debut. The film has also secured an all rights deal for China (Hugo East).
Kiddo follows a young girl in a children’s home who dreams of her mother, who the girl says is a Hollywood actress. When the mother arrives, the duo end up on a Bonnie And Clyde-style road-trip in search of hidden money.
Dutch director Dwinger’s short film Yulia & Juliet played in Generation 14plus at the 2019 Berlinale, after her graduation film Siren had played at over 35 international festivals.
Kiddo is produced by Layla Meijman and Maarten van der Ven, for the Netherlands’ Studio Ruba. Gusto Entertainment will handle a Netherlands release later this year.
