One year before theatrical release, journalists stopped by to take a sneak peek at the production of new animated feature film THE ELFKINS. The filmmakers, together with director Ute von Münchow-Pohl and Professor Carl Bergengruen, the CEO of MFG Film Fund Baden-Württemberg, provided background information on the project and gave practical insight into the production process of a CG-animated feature film. On September 12th 2019, the ELFKINS will finally leave their underground home to conquer the cinema screens.
