Indie Sales has acquired the first ever feature-length Moomins movie, Moomins on the Riveria, for international distribution.

The deal with the co-producers of the film, Hanna Hemila and Xaviar Picard, allows the firm to sell the film worldwide excluding Scandinavia and France.

The film will also be directed by Xavier Picard who is making his big screen directorial debut having previously worked on TV shows Odd Family and Littlest Pet Shop.

"Moomins on the Riviera is a fabulous addition to our Toronto line-up," said Nicolas Eschbach of Indie Sales.

"Xavier and Hanna have done a superb job in maintaining the timeless humour, tone and pictorial quality of the Moomins in a sophisticated adventure for the whole family."

Moomins on the Riviera will arrive in Q2 2014.
