One year before theatrical release, journalists stopped by to take a sneak peek at the production of new animated feature film THE ELFKINS. The filmmakers, together with director Ute von Münchow-Pohl and Professor Carl Bergengruen, the CEO of MFG Film Fund Baden-Württemberg, provided background information on the project and gave practical insight into the production process of a CG-animated feature film. On September 12th 2019, the ELFKINS will finally leave their underground home to conquer the cinema screens.
Wow! Akkord Film is among the 5 European film production companies nominated as “Producer of the Year” by CARTOON – European Association of Animation Film. The prize recognizes the work of companies and people that have contributed to the development of the European animation industry over the past year.
RAVEN THE LITTLE RASCAL – THE BIG RACE, won the online vote among three animated movies to be aired Friday, August 17th on KiKA, the German kids TV channel. On top, the movie broke this year’s slot record with the highest market share in 2018. A huge thank you to all Raven fans!
