Mytho, which recently received funding from the Quebecor Fund’s Film Production Assistance Program, is written by De Père en Flic 2‘s Eric K. Boulianne and Sebastien Ravary.

Les Films Séville will distribute the film in Quebec, with a planned summer 2019 release.

Mytho is produced with the participation of Telefilm Canada, SODEC, CBC, Harold Greenberg Funds and the Quebecor Fund.
