Cinekid for Professionals has selected 20 children’s film and television projects-in-development for its Junior Co-production Market (JCM), to be held 25-26 October 2018 during the Cinekid Festival in Amsterdam.

In the feature film project selection, we find Miss Moxy, written by Maureen Versprille, and directed by Vincent Bal. Produced by the Dutch company BosBros (NL), and co-produced in Belgium and France, it tells the story of the urban, slightly conceited cat Miss Moxy.

Miss Moxy decides to go home on her own during a holiday in the French countryside. This is the beginning of a long and tiring trip, which quickly becomes more adventurous.  in which the kitten cat makes friends with a boxer dog and an old swallow who accompany her during her adventurous journey.

Miss Moxy

The Irish Ink & Light project Harry & Bip-Summer Season (written and directed by Leevi Lemmetty) is selected in the TV projects section. Harry and Bip is a non-verbal comedy with two friends who live in a vast icy expanse; they navigate their friendship, and the world around them with physical humour, slapstick comedy and a lot of heart

Harry and Bip

Musifants by Meike Fehre and Sabine Dully (Ahoifilm/ DullyDully) is a German-produced project.

Musifanten

Pepe Luu  TV project in development by Valerie Chang is produced by Submarine, The Netherlands. The TV project started as a short film by Valerie Change Wolves of Mangotown, about young girl Pepe Luu, her friend Luco the bird, and the community of Mangotown. Here's the short film below.
