Dandelooo Establishes Feature Film Division


Dandelooo is launching a new feature film division, Dandelooo Cinéma.

Based at the company’s Paris headquarters, Dandelooo Cinéma is led by Luna Sirvin, international sales and acquisitions manager for feature films. Sirvin will oversee and expand Dandelooo Cinéma’s activities by acquiring, developing, producing and marketing animated films for kids and families.

Emmanuèle Pétry, co-founder, said, “Entering into the cinema space is a natural progression for Dandelooo. We are passionate about delivering exceptional entertainment, and Dandelooo Cinéma allows us to take this commitment to new heights and build and strengthen our content for global audiences.”

Sirvin added, “Despite the challenging environment, we feel the need to offer uplifting and meaningful stories. We believe that the quality of an animated film and its message is revealed through the passionate work of local distributors. This in-depth work is the key to meeting today’s biggest challenge: to keep inviting children into movie theaters. As an international sales agent, our mission is to offer ambitious animated films that will inspire and enrich the lives of kids around the world.”

Dandelooo Cinéma has a roster of projects in the pipeline for its cinema lineup and has just signed the international theatrical rights for three new animated feature films: Hola Frida!, the fictional childhood story of Mexico’s greatest artist; Born in the Jungle, for upper preschool and families; and Granny is a Tree!, targeted at the 7-plus age group.
