The feature animation "Mini and the Mozzies" is announced as part of the line-up for the upcoming Berlinale (5-15 February). The film is selected for the children's programme, Generation Kplus.

Peppered with songs and jazzy tunes, "Mini and the Mozzies" is the story about Mini the beetle who works in a flea circus­ together with Egon the Cycling­ Mosquito and Dagmar the Dancing­ Mosquito. One day Mini runs away­ from the circus and embarks on an­ adventure which involves a gang of­ robbers led by Basse the Beetle and­ the two bee princesses who adopt him as their pet.­

Flemming Quist Møller and Jannik­ Hastrup have put their separate thumbprints all over Danish animation for close to a lifetime. The duo made the animated classic "Benny's Bathtub" in 1971, now included in the official Danish film canon. From there, their career paths diverged. In 2007, they teamed up again to make "A Tale of Two Mozzies," their first film centring on the colourful universe of Egon and his friends, based on a hugely popular children's book by Quist Møller.

"Mini and the Mozzies" is­ produced by Marie Bro for Dansk Tegnefilm. International sales are handled by TrustNordisk.

The Berlin Film Festival will be announcing more films for their line-up over the next month.
