DOUBLE BILL: Disneynature Monkey Kingdom | In Between
Life is an adventure for Maya, the clever and resourceful blonde-bobbed monkey in “Monkey Kingdom", Disneynature’s new feature film set among ancient ruins in the storied jungles of South Asia. Maya’s world is forever changed when she welcomes her son, Kip, into her complicated extended family. Like all families, Maya’s has more than its share of colourful personalities—and she’s determined to give her son a leg up in the world. When their longtime home at Castle Rock is taken over by powerful neighbouring monkeys, Maya's whole family retreats, and she uses her street smarts and ingenuity to uncover untapped resources amidst strange new creatures and unsettling surroundings. Ultimately, they will all have to work together to reclaim Castle Rock, where Maya can hopefully realize her dreams for her son’s future.

Wildscreen Panda Award nominations: Animal Behaviour Award

In a remote corner of the world a living relic from a prehistoric age still exists. A magnificent creature that once roamed northern plains alongside mammoths and sabertooth cats, enduring where others vanished. This film is the result of my journey into his world, one that is unknown to most of us.
A production by Rolf Steinmann
Wildscreen Panda Award nominations: Panasonic Cinematography Award (small crew), Short Award
