January 6, 2014
Over the Christmas holidays two new Dutch feature films, Mister Twister Goes Camping by Barbara Bredero and A Christmoose Story directed by Lourens Blok, have reached the status of Golden Film for more than 100.000 tickets sold, shortly after their theatrical release in The Netherlands on December 11.
Mister Twister Goes Camping, written by Tijs van Marle and produced by PV Pictures, is the sequel to the succesful feature Mister Twister, Class of Fun (2012). It has just been announced that Mister Twister Goes Camping is the Dutch youth film that attracted most visitors in 2013.
A Christmoose Story is written by Daan Bakker and Marco van Geffen. Lemming Film (NL) produced the family film in co-production with Svensk Filmindustri (SE), Davaj Film (SE) and Anchorage Entertainment (BE). Attraction Distribution handle the international sales and have already sold the film to Germany, France, French speaking Belgium and several Eastern European countries.
In A Christmoose Story a giant moose crashes through the roof of Max’s garage! A moose that talks! A moose that claims to work for Santa! While the moose recuperates and bonds with Max, Max’s neighbour is chasing him for his beautiful antlers… In the meantime Max and Moose have to find Santa, or no one will receive a Christmas gift this year! Is Max able to get Moose and Santa flying again?
The Golden/Platinum/Diamond Film Award is an initiative presented by the Netherlands Film Festival and the Netherlands Film Fund since 2001. The prize is intended to encourage the Dutch film industry and motivate the general public to go and see Dutch films. The total number of tickets sold after a film's release determines whether a prize is awarded.
