Films In Denmark

Aston is staring as a cover boy in the Danish poster of “Børnebiffen”.

Børnebiffen is organized by the Danish Film Institute to give municipalities and theaters in whole Denmark the possibility to screen quality children’s films.

You can also see our Spot and Splodge in Snowstorm (or as they call it “Prik og Plet i sneen“) in one of the Danish film packages.

And soon they will also have our Spot and Splodge at the Dentist in Danish.

Here’s the link to that document. Though it’s in French it’s easy it’s follow.

First review (in swedish)

Tidningen Vi Föräldrar skriver om Prick och Fläck.

Review spot and splodge “De har varit på pricknick, tandtrollat, snöat in, varit hemliga och stått på öronen – men bara i bokform och som teaterpjäs. Nu äntligen finns prisbelönta Lotta Geffenblads kaninduo Prick och Fläck som animerad film: 43 minuters utflykt till deras eget prickfläckiga, absurda mikrokosmos. Geffenblad och maken Uzi låg bakom den fantastiska filmen Bland tistlar som vann en hel drös internationella priser. Att de återigen presterat ett epos för vita duken är inte bara på pricken i höst – utan en begivenhet. Bara att passa på! Kolla närmaste biograf på”
