“Let’s Go Grandpa!”
To get the family together, you sometimes need to run away from home.
Your crazy grandpa is the best, but your dad hates him. And he doesn’t believe you can talk to real dragons, either. This leaves you with no choice: you have to run away, free grandpa from his retirement home and hit the road. It seems only grandpa’s legendary boat can stop this chaos and save the family. A story that could happen to (almost) any family.
“Let’s Go Grandpa!” received the CETA postproduction award at Kids Kino Industry in September.

Pirate, an imaginary dog, struggles with his creator’s Frankie growing up. One night, Pirate leaves Frankie’s room for the first time and gets into Fantasylum – a gloomy shelter for imaginary pets. The place is ruled by Jeerella the cat, who leads and persuades the other animals to hate their creators. Pirate does everything in his doggy power to find his way back to Frankie. Pirate’s journey – packed with adventures and extraordinary characters – actually talks about growing up and dealing with your own imagination. For growing up is unavoidable, and that’s ok.
