Directed by Ted Sieger, Michael Ekblad, and Matthias Bruhn (Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, 2016). NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE—Molly Monster is the beloved daughter of Popo and Etna Monster, best friend to windup toy Edison, and is about to add “Big Sister” to the list. But in all the excitement of a monster-on-the-way, her parents forgot to bring the hat she knit for the baby to Egg Island, where all the new monsters are born.

With Edison by her side, Molly travels through a technicolor dreamland with an endless assortment of Seussical friendly monsters, unexpected challenges, and even some very whimsical singing. Capturing the inventive, colorful world of Ted Sieger’s popular German TV series, Molly Monster is one big adventure that’s perfect for the littlest Festival goers.
