The session was held behind closed doors on Thursday morning, so we don't have any images to show you yet, but it's well worth the wait. Adapted from Dino Buzzati’s book by the great illustrator Mattotti, the animated feature film The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily almost didn't get made. It's with this warning that Valérie Schermann (Producer, Prima Linea) began her presentation: "I want to start by introducing our partners on this film because financing it was very very hard!" 18 partners have made the €11 million budget possible: the French outfit Prima Linea Productions, France 3 Cinema, Pathé, the CNC, Canal+, Ciné+, the Region of Ile-de-France, the Region of New Aquitaine, the Department of Charente, the GAN Foundation, MEDIA Europe Créative, Procirep and Angoa, and the Italian outfits Indigo Film, Rai Cinema and MIBACT, with Pathé and Wild Bunch handling international sales. "I would like to say thank you thank you thank you to the CNC! We have been given an incredible opportunity in France!"
Nothing has been left to chance on this environmental tale, with its wonderful scenery that will "awaken us to the reality of the world." With assistance from talented artists such as Valérie Lemercier or Jean-Claude Carrière who play characters in the film, and Thomas Bidegain (A Prophet [+lee también:

The turbines at the studios in Paris and Angouleme are currently running at full speed to animate and create this crazy adventure – full of vibrant colours –something that only Lorenzo Mattotti is capable of delivering while respecting Buzzati's illustrations. No doubt it will be an important film for 2019.
