Children’s feature film project “The Beanie” was recently successfully presented at the Warsaw Kids Film Forum, Poland’s first international event for films aimed to young audiences. In the following week, the film will also be presented at the prestigious Cinekid Junior Production Market, which will take place from 21 – 23 October 2019 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. “The Beanie” was one of the twelve selected projects among over a hundred submitted films that will get a chance of presenting itself on an international market of financiers, broadcasters, distributors and sales agents.
“The Beanie” tells the story about a boy who has nothing and a girl who seems to have everything and their Christmas adventure when all of their Christmas wishes come true, but not quite the way they’ve each expected.
The film is produced by Ida Weiss and will be directed by Slobodan Maksimović (Nika) based on the script by Saša Eržen.
The principle photography s planned in winter 2020/21.
Project is supported by Slovenian Film Centre, film studio Viba film, Creative Europe – MEDIA programme and RE-ACT Co-Development Funding Scheme.
In 2017, the project also participated in a scriptwriting workshop “Scenarnica”, organized by The Directors Guild of Slovenia. In 2018 it was further developed at Cinekid Script LAB.
