GKIDS ACQUIRES NORTH AMERICAN RIGHTS TO “MARONA’S FANTASTIC TALE” OFFICIAL SELECTION IN COMPETITION FOR ANNECY

GKIDS, the acclaimed producer and distributor of animation for adult and family audiences, announced it has acquired North American distribution rights for the animated feature MARONA’S FANTASTIC TALE, the new film from director Anca Damian, whose earlier film Crulic: The Path to Beyond, won Annecy’s Cristal Prize for Best Feature in 2012. MARONA’S FANTASTIC TALE premieres in competition at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival today. The North American all-rights deal was negotiated by GKIDS’ CEO Eric Beckman andCarole Baraton for Charades. Rights are being sold worldwide by Charades.

“We have been excited about this film since we saw the first images several years ago,” said GKIDS President David Jesteadt. “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. We are sure audiences are going to fall in love with the film as much as we have.”

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