  • Animation <Leafie, a Hen Into the Wild> set to fly to Sitges
  • Jul 27, 2011

  • Myung Films and Lotte Entertainment have announced that their theatrical animation <Leafie, a Hen Into the Wild> has been invited to the 44th Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia’s Sitges Kids section.
     
    Based on a best-selling children’s novel, Leafie is a dramatic animation directed by OH Sung-yoon with the voice talents of award-winning actors MOON So-ri (<Oasis>) and CHOI Min-sik (<Old Boy>). The animation also features the voice talent of young YOO Seung-ho, who previously dubbed the voice for Astro Boy in Korea and starred in the recent Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival (PiFan) Closing Film <Blind>.
     
    Leafie, a Hen Into the Wild is co-produced by Myung Films (<Joint Security Area>, <Cyrano Agency>) and Odoltogi Studio. It is due for release in South Korea on July 28 through distributor Lotte Entertainment. The animation has already clocked up 35,338 admissions and KW203.65m (US$193,900) in preview screenings at the box office.
     
    It was previously announced at the European Film Market (EFM) in February that Chinese distributor Dadi Entertainment Ltd. and Myung Films signed a cooperation agreement to have a day-and-date release of Leafie in China on around 1,000 screens.
     
    Seoul-based sales company Finecut is handling international sales for the animation, which it launched earlier this year at the Cannes film market when Leafie was still in post-production.
    As previously announced, the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival has also invited NA Hong-jin’s hardcore thriller <The Yellow Sea>. The film will be in the festival’s Competition section. Starring Ha Jung-woo, The Yellow Sea recently won the Best Director Award at this year’s PiFan.
