‘Rodencia’ Pushes Out More Sales

Deals underscore appetite for indie animation

SAN SEBASTIAN – Underscoring rising market returns for select non-U.S. indie animated movies, FilmSharks International has announced more overseas sales on “Rodencia and the Princess’ Tooth,” Peru’s first 3D toon pic.

In Oz, Sony Pictures Australia will open “Rodencia” in association with SC Movies, said FilmSharks founder Guido Rud.

Shoval Film Production has tied down Israel, Monnasich Jiant Pics Thailand, Amazonia Films Venezuela and Multicines Ecuador.

Grindstone Entertainment has acquired all U.S. and Canadian rights, releasing via Lionsgate Home Entertainment. It plans a first quarter 2014 release, Rud said.

Top Film has closed CIS, Cinema Republic Korea, Flins & Piniculas Spain, Distribution Co. Argentina, H2O Films Brazil, in announced major territory deals.

Helmed by David Bisbano and co-produced by Alvaro Urtizberea at Buenos Aires’ Vista Sur Films (“The Holy Girl,” “Puzzle”), “Rodencia” is the first toon feature from Peru’s Red Post Animation Studio, and a family-orientated adventure-fantasy about a clod-footed mouse-come-sorcerer’s apprentice who sets off to find a magical princess’ tooth and defeat a horde of invading rats.

Part of Latin America’s growing animation scene, “Rodencia” was released by UIP in Peru on Oct. 11, grossing about $600,000.

The U.K., Germany, France, China and Portugal are now under negotiations, Rud said.

Selling both Spanish and English-language movies, with a strong line in big local hits with sales potential abroad, FilmSharks has also sold Adrian Caetano’s tragic femme hired assassin actioner “Evil Woman,” which plays competition at October’s Sitges, to Japan’s Aya Pro Co.

New Select has acquired Japanese rights to Eduardo Rossof’s adrift-at-sea drama “Let Me Survive,” with BAFTA-nommed Kierston Wareing (“It’s a Free World”).
