The film, produced by AM Pictures, will join Incredible Film’s portfolio of kids’ content, along with award-winning live action film "Lioness" which will be presented at MIPJunior.

Also joining Incredible Film’s MIP Junior slate is award-winning feature film, "Lioness", coproduced by Levitate Film, The Media Brothers and Dutch public broadcaster, NTR. Bringing to focus the importance of overcoming social and cultural barriers, the film explores the character of Rosi, who has the perfect life in Suriname, South America, until her life is flipped upside down when she uproots for the Netherlands.
Featured on the slate is the live action series "Saïd & Anna", which will have its global premiere at MIP Jr. "The Infinite Slime Movie" (81’) from the Slime Movie collection, and the first film from the animated Tummy Tom collection, "Tummy Tom and The Lost Teddy Bear" (60’).

She brings these incredible characters to life (especially Miss Vomit!) and has created an imaginative universe for her fan base. We are really excited to bring Carry’s vision to the screen and explore her story with our brilliant team. Alongside the film, this year we’re delighted to share the award-winning feature, Lioness. Like much of our lineup at MIPJnr, it’s a film that reflects cultural diversity for young audiences, and the importance of respect for all.”
