‘Nina And The Tales Of The Hedgehog’

French sales and production company Les Films du Losange has boarded international rights on feature animation Nina And The Tales Of The Hedgehog ahead of the project’s Annecy work-in-progress pitch later today.

The film is from writer-director duo Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli, whose 2010 feature A Cat In Paris was nominated in animation categories at the Oscars, Cesars and European Film Awards.

Nina And The Tales Of The Hedgehog is a France-Luxembourg co-production, between Parmi Les Lucioles Films, Doghouse Films and KMBO, with backing from the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes regional fund. KMBO is handling French distribution on the film, which is expected to be completed in 2023.

The 2D computer animation family title centres on a young girl whose father has lost his factory job after a long strike. A rumour goes round that a nest-egg is hidden somewhere in the factory.

Annecy runs until Saturday, June 18, with the Mifa market closing on Friday 17.
