Moomins on the Riviera was chosen to the official programme at London International film festival, that is held btw 8-19 October. The first festival screening on Saturday the 11th in Hackney Picturehouse was the first time that new Moomin feature was shown in front of the international audience. The reception was very positive. ”This is a beautifully created, quaint and lovely little film, filled with humour,” writes Wizard Radio. Also Screen Daily notifies Moomins in its article. English language voice actor for Moomin character Russel Tovey made also comment on the red carpet.
Producer Hanna Hemilä from Handle Productions was extremely happy about the full house in London: ”This is fantastic, there could not be better culmination for Tove Jansson‘s 100th anniversary that has been celebrated all year in 2014.” Tickets are selling well also for the second screening that will take place in Odeon West End on Saturday the 18th at 3PM.
