Produced by Emmanuel Chaumet for Ecce Films (which managed all of Sophie Letourneur’s films), Gaby Baby Doll was pre-purchased by Ciné+ and benefits from an advance on receipts from the CNC, the Sofica Cinémage and the Bourgogne region. The filming, which began from September 9-21, will start again for two weeks in October before ending with two more weeks at the beginning of 2014. The French distribution will be handled by Shellac while Ecce Films will handle international sales directly.
