Jannik Hastrup

(1941 – )

Director. Born 1941, Denmark. During the sixties and seventies, Jannik Hastrup, Denmark's grand master of animation, produced and directed some sixty animated short films, among them the Danish classics 'Benny's Bathtub' (1970) and 'Circleen' (1967-71).



'Samson & Sally' (1984) and the Cannes Junior winner 'War of the Birds' (1990) became international festival hits, selling worldwide. While his films appeal to all ages, the biographical 'Hans Christian Andersen and The Long Shadow' (1997) was his first film designated for a mature audience. 'The Boy Who Wanted to Be a Bear' (2003) was an international success which won numerous prizes. The popular elf Circleen from Hastrup's 60s shorts made her feature film debut with 'Circleen - City Mice' (1998) which was awarded in Chicago and Montevideo, while the following 'Circleen - Mice and Romance' (2000) was selected for Kinderfilmfest, Berlin. Jannik Hastrup and Flemming Quist Møller's 'A Tale of Two Mozzies' (2007) and the follow-up 'Mini and the Mozzies' both participated in Generation Kplus in Berlin.
