Most prominent is Dutch filmmaker Pieter Verhoeff's period adventure Letter For The King, reportedly the most-expensive Dutch production, which saw 300,000 admissions last year on release in Holland. The film won the International Jury Prize for Best Film and the Junior Jury Prize at Germany's Schlingel International Film Festival for Children. Verhoeff will attend the Sprockets screening.
The second North American premiere is Nicole van Kilsdonk's coming-of-teen drama How To Survive Myself' (Hoe Overleff Ik Mezeif'). German filmmaker Vivian Naefe's Wild Chicks And Life will screen as an international premiere. It's the third film in the popular German teen-oriented film series.
The festival runs from April 18-24 in Toronto.
