The Madhouse kids were very excited to receive a bundle of goodies in the post to celebrate the release of the lovely new animation Long Way North, which hits cinemas tomorrow.
The film tells the story of 15-year-old Russian aristocrat Sasha, who, when her explorer grandfather mysteriously goes missing on his latest expedition, embarks on an epic adventure to find him and his lost ship, the Davai.
If you have a look at the trailer, you'll instantly get a feel for the film, which uses traditional hand-drawn 2D animation. It is the directorial debut from lauded animator Rémi Chayé, and was co-produced by French studio Sacrebleu Productions and Danish animation company Norlum (SONG OF THE SEA). Having won the coveted Audience Award at the 2015 Annecy International Animation Festival, Long Way North has continued to attract universal acclaim as it enchants audiences across the world.
As well as the film, we discovered the Children's Cinema Club, a Lottery-funded association which aims to bring the best of independent, international children’s films to UK family audiences. You can sign up for free and receive lovely goodies through the post related to new films, take advantage of special offers from partners and be the first to hear about special events and screenings. (There's currently an issue on the sign-up form with the captcha code missing but I've let them know so it should be fixed soon.) You can also check out their latest digital magazine and enter a giveaway to win a goodie pack similar to the one in my top picture.
