"Fireheart" reaches the symbolic threshold of two million spectators internationally!

Eight months after its first release outside France, Fireheart reached the symbolic threshold of two million spectators abroad (€7.2 million in box office revenues)! The film has thus garnered 1.5 times more admissions outside French borders than domestically. The French-Canadian-minority production was directed by Theodore Ty and Laurent Zeitoun, produced by Simpatico with the Canadian companies Caramel Films and Main Journey, and exported by Anton Corp.

The animated film released on the greatest number of screens in Russia (1,530 screens), Mexico (863), and Brazil (485) and it is in these three markets that it has achieved its best performances, respectively 397,000 admissions (Central Partnership, €0.8 million in box office revenues), 342,000 (Corazón Films, €0.9 million), and 215,000 (Paris Filmes, €0.7 million). Poland, where Fireheart released mid-July, came in fourth, where 247,000 moviegoers flocked to see it (Kino Swiat, €0.9 million).

The film has released in more than 50 territories and reached the local top 10 thirty times, including second place in Croatia, Lithuania, Poland, and Romania, and third in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Ecuador, Iceland, and Russia.

Of these two million foreign moviegoers, 900,000 are in Latin America and represent one third of the audience for French films in the first nine months of 2022 in this geographic area. Unsurprisingly, all financing shares combined, Fireheart is the biggest French success since January in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Mexico, not to mention South Africa and Lithuania.

Fireheart is the fourth French production to attract more than two million spectators abroad to theaters since the beginning of the pandemic, after The Father (4.14 million and €28.9 million in box office revenues), Bigfoot Family (2.68 million and €13.3 million), and Pinocchio (2.55 million and €13 million), all minority-French productions.
