“One of Damian’s previous animated features, Crulic: The Path to Beyond, won Annecy’s Cristal Prize for Best Feature in 2012. Marona’s Fantastic Tale premieres in competition at this year’s festival today. The Romanian/French/Belgian co-pro was produced by Aparte Films, Sacrebleu Productions, and Minds Meet.

Of the new acquisition, GKIDS president David Jesteadt said: “We have been excited about this film since we saw the first images several years ago. The film combines a unique and wildly inventive visual style with a universal story that goes straight to the heart for anyone who has been lucky enough to spend time with a dog.”

Baraton, Charades’ co-founder, added: “The Charades team is very proud that GKIDS fell under the spell of this very special movie.We are sure they will provide the exposure it deserves in the U.S. market. After partnering on Mirai last year, we are super excited to embark again on this new adventure with them.”
