UPDATE DAY

The film “Coco ferme”, which will mark the return of the Tales for All series, this time on Club illico, obtains financial support from the Quebecor Fund under the 24th round of financing of its Aid program supporting film production. 

Produced by Attraction Images and La Fête Content & Concept, “Coco ferme” will focus on Max, an 11-year-old entrepreneur who will embark on the creation of a farm of 500 laying hens.

TVA Films will distribute “ Coco closes”, which is expected on Club illico in 2023. Producer Dominic James, who is also writing the screenplay, told QMI Agency in May that the film would make people laugh as much as it would move. Filming should take place this summer in Estrie, under the direction of director Sébastien Gagné.

As part of this 24th round of financing, the three projects selected are sharing a total sum of $718,000.

The other two feature films selected are “Coeur de slush”, produced by Christal Films Productions and distributed by Les Films Opale. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Sarah-Maude Beauchesne, who also wrote the screenplay. Director Mariloup Wolfe is directing the set.

As for the third and final project, it is “Simple comme Sylvain”, produced by Metafilms and distributed by Les Films Sevilla. Monia Monia Chokri directs, she who has just launched her film “Baby-sitter”.

Both “Coeur de slush” and “Simple comme Sylvain” have received funds from Telefilm Canada and SODEC.< /p>
