Henrik Ruben Genz, Denmark, 2003

84 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films

Hodder is nine. He lives on his own with his dad, who puts up posters at night for a living. One night a fairy asks Hodder to save the world. He starts planning an expedition, and asks the strongest boy in his class, Philip, and the cleverest boy, Alex, to join him. They say they will, but only to trick Hodder. Things become too much and Hodder escapes into his own world. Just as Hodder is about to lose touch with real life altogether, Philip discovers that he and Hodder have more in common than he thought.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
