A Bonne Pioche production, The Fox & the Child is directed by Luc Jacquet and produced by Yves Darondeau, Christophe Lioud and Emmanuel Priou.

"We are tremendously pleased to be a part of The Fox & the Child," said Berney. "It's a universal story that will touch people of all ages. I know that Luc and his team will bring their incredible passion to this project and capture images we never thought possible."
