‘Nefertine on the Nile’ Best Pilot at Cartoons on the Bay

Italian-French coproduction Nefertine on the Nile — a hybrid 2D & 3D animated 52 x 11 series from Graphilm and Cyber Group Studios — has won the Pulcinella Award for Best Pilot at the 2016 Cartoons on the Bay event. The comedy-adventure is currently in development and is aimed at kids ages 5-7.

“After receiving the prestigious Pulcinella award for best international studio of the year in 2014, we are extremely gratified to receive this new award for our pilot of Nefertine coproduced with award winning studio Graphilm,” said Cyber Group’s Chairman & CEO Pierre Sissmann.

Based on the book series All’ombra della piramidi (“In the Shadow of the Pyramids”) by Janna Carioli and Luisa Mattia, Nefertine on the Nile recounts the adventures of Nefertine: a special little girl endowed with lively intelligence, inexhaustible curiosity and plenty of courage. She dreams of being the first female scribe in the history of Egypt, so she can describe the wonderful world of ancient Egypt and the pharaohs with its many unique customs, traditions, colors and flavors. The budding young journalist uses her papyrus-diary to jot down the adventures she has with her best friend, Piramses.

Cartoons on the Bay, home of the Pulcinella Awards, is an international television and transmedia animation festival held each year in Italy. The 2016 edition, held April 7-9 in Venice, marked the festival’s 20th anniversary.
