Berlin / Munich, February, 5th 2019. Ella Bella and Henry are best friends, but one day a new boy, Johnny, moves into the neighborhood and everything changes! ELLA BELLA BINGO tells a touching story about the fear of losing one’s best friend. A story every child and every adult can identify with. For that reason it also takes place in the contemporary world, not in some dream world far far away. In the tradition of Scandinavian story-telling the film narrates from a child’s point of view. It takes children seriously and does not talk down to them. Additionally, the audience meets a strong female lead. Ella Bella is a female hero both boys and girls can look up to. All this makes ELLA BELLA BINGO an outstanding movie fitting perfectly in Studio 100 Films well-chosen portfolio for EFM. ELLA BELLA BINGO is a production by Kool Produktion AS together with Gimpville AS. The movie is currently in production and its delivery is planned for December 2019. Studio 100 Film acts as international sales agent and can be found at Marriott Office # 268.


Frank Mosvold, Producer at Kool Produktion AS, comments, “On the production of ELLA BELLA BINGO, it has been my goal to find the best people available to work on our film and I am very happy to have brought together such a great team. For example we are very glad to have Rob Sprackling and Johnny Smith on board for the script, the writers behind ‘The Queen’s Corgi’ and ‘Gnomeo & Juliet’, and story artist Jay Clarke, who did all the story boards of ‘Isle of Dogs’ – just to name a few.”


Thorsten Wegener, Director Business Operations at Studio 100 Film, says “We are very happy to present this outstanding movie at this year’s EFM. We work closely with Frank Mosvold and his team and are very enthusiastic about this movie coming to life. It complements our portfolio at Studio 100 Film perfectly and I am convinced that ELLA BELLA BINGO will win over a broad international audience with its capturing story and high production value.”
