Dansk Tegnefilm

Dansk Tegnefilm was founded by director Jannik Hastrup in 1976. He was joined in 1985 by producer Marie Bro, who became partner in 1996. The turning point of the company is the production of Hastrup's own animated films.

"Samson and Sally" (Jannik Hastrup, 1984), about two whales' adventure in a sea full of pollution and whalers, was the first fully animated feature film in Denmark since "The Tinder Box" (Svend Methling, 1946). Among others, Dansk Tegnefilm has produced the Greenlandic tale "The boy who wanted to be a bear" (Jannik Hastrup, 2003) that became an international success and won several prizes. The popular animated elf Circleen has also received international attention through Dansk Tegnefilm's production of three animated feature films: "Cirkeline: Storbyens mus" (Jannik Hastrup, 1998), "Circleen: Mice & Romance" (Jannik Hastrup, 2000) and "Little Big Mouse" (Jannik Hastrup, 2004).

A cooperation between Jannik Hastrup and Fleming Quist Møller in 2007 resulted in the animated feature films "A Tale of Two Mozzies" (Jannik Hastrup and Fleming Quist Møller, 2007), winner of Kristiansand International Children's Film Festival Audience Award, and "Mini and the Mozzies" (Jannik Hastrup and Fleming Quist Møller, 2014), screened at the Berlinale 2015.
