Estonian Animated Film “Lotte and the Moonstone Secret” to be Shown in Turkey


Nr 451-E

The European Union delegation in Turkey has organised a film festival in Turkey from 10-12 December, which this year is dedicated to human rights. Estonia is participating with the full-length animated film “Lotte and the Moonstone Secret”, which has been dubbed in Turkish for the occasion.

“Lotte and the Moonstone Secret” will be screened within the framework of the festival on two days in popular cinemas in Turkey’s ten biggest cities. The screenings of the film are free.

Before the screening of the film today, 11 December, the film’s creators Janno Põldma and Heiki Ernits met with Turkish schoolchildren to talk about Lotte and her world. After the movie the children could ask questions about it, and the best question was awarded with a moon rabbit.

Participation in the festival is a good opportunity to introduce Estonian animated films in Turkey. In addition, through the event we can address the importance of human rights in Estonia’s foreign policy, which is particularly important since we will soon be a member of the UN Human Rights Council.
