“Jimmy Saves the Olympics” was part of a cross continental young people’s animation project celebrating the Olympic Games, “Olympics, Let’s Fantasize”, organised by the ASIFA Workshop Group.
The group are up against two other nominated films from Stockton-on-Tees and Brighton for the ‘Best Animation’ award, chosen by an industry panel and youth jury. As part of the ‘Best Animation’ category and sponsored by Activision, they will be judged by Ben Miller (The Armstrong & Miller Show), Georgia Groome (Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging), Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and Ashley Jensen (Ugly Betty).
The winning film from each category will be announced at the glittering awards ceremony on 17th March, hosted by T4’s Miquita Oliver and Rick Edwards at the ODEON Leicester Square, London. The ceremony will be attended by a mix of film industry luminaries and celebrities who present the awards across eight categories; Best Drama, Best Horror, Best Thriller, Best Screenplay, Best Animation, Best Fantasy Adventure, Best Film by Under 12s and Best Film by Over 13s.
