Streamed online between June 19 and July 30, 2020

An accident causes a little dog to remember all of the masters it loved unconditionally.

Happiness is different for dogs… they just want things to stay the same. This poetic and touching animated film from director Anca Damian follows an optimistic stray dog named Marona as she looks back on the human companions she has loved throughout her life. Delivered alongside dazzlingly colorful, sweeping designs produced in part by acclaimed artist Brecht Evens, Marona’s Fantastic Tale is a life-affirming tale told with the patient, boundless love of a dog.

In French with English subtitles
Recommended for ages 8+


Told with charm, wit and invention, this is family entertainment with an appeal that should cross the generations.” - Allan Hunter, Screen International

""Marona's Fantastic Tale" promises a fantasy or fable, packed with dream visions, eccentric characters and world-changing events. But while this animated film from director Anna Damian delivers all that and more, nothing that happens in it would seem extraordinary if you were describing it to a friend. It's about the chaotic life of a pet—a mixed breed dog who calls herself a "mutt"—and there isn't a single thing in it that couldn't happen." - Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com
