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. The projects will be presented to more than 300 international professionals from the children’s media industry to encourage international co-operation.

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.
