Immigrants, also known as L.A. Dolce Vita or Immigrants: L.A. Dolce Vita (Hungarian title: Immigrants - Jóska menni Amerika) is a Hungarian-American animated film directed by Gábor Csupó. The Hungarian release date was October 30, 2008. It is the fifth feature-length film from studio Klasky-Csupo, and is Csupó's first feature-length animated film he directed, and his second in general, following the live-action Bridge to Terabithia for Walt Disney Pictures.
The characters and storyline in this motion picture was to have been the basis for a new animated series for Spike TV, which was to have debuted in August 2004; however, despite scheduling a two-hour marathon of the series on its premiere and an order of six episodes, the series never aired. It was later compiled into a film and released in October 2008 in Hungary.
For home video, the film was released on Region 1 DVD in 2009 by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment.
