"The Reef" and "Ugly Duckling" Bookend 10th Sprockets Fest for Children

The North American debut of Kyeong-ho Lee, John Fox and Howard E. Baker‘s animated underwater comedy, “The Reef” will open the 10th Sprockets Toronto International Film Festival for Children, taking place April 13 – 22. This year’s festival will screen films in 25 languages from 28 different countries. In addition to the line up, the event will honor the “Degrassi” franchise with producer-creator Linda Schuyler, key cast members and contributors to the creative team, on Saturday April 14. In addition, to celebrate its 10th anniversary, Sprockets will host a Canadian Retrospective of four award-winning feature films from previous years at the festival. “The Ugly Duckling and Me” by Michael Hegner and Karsten Kiilerich will close the fest. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen‘s classic, the film follows Ratso, a “success-starved rodent who persuades the villagers that he is the father of a stray ugly duckling.” Sprockets is a program of the Toronto International Film Festival Group.
