We are also very pleased about the invitation of “Ritter Trenk” to the programme of two European animation film festivals! In September “Ritter Trenk” made a stop at the Viborg Animation Film Festival in Denmark. Every year the festival celebrates the great variety and range of animation film. Afterwards, the film continued to the anim’est International Animation Film Festival in Bucharest, Romania. The 11th edition of the festival takes place from 7 to 16 October.

DVD and Blu-ray will be released on April 22, 2016.
