POLISH PRODUCERS HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN THE CARTOON TRIBUTES AWARD
On the 5th of March, the winners of this year's Cartoon Tributes awards will be announced. Among the nominees in the best producer category, there is the Polish studio Letko, which, in co-operation with Latvia, worked on a feature-length animated film for children.
Cartoon Tributes are awards given to the European animated film industry. Every year, the awards are given in three categories: the best director, the best distributor and the producer of the year. The festive gala, during which the winners of individual categories will be announced, is held on the 5th of March in Bordeaux.
The Polish studio Letko was appreciated for the co-production of the children's film "Jacob, Mimmi and the Talking Dogs," directed by Edmunds Jansons. The nominated animated film tells the story of the 10-year-old Jakub who, even though he does not want to, spends a week in the suburbs of Riga with his feisty cousin Mimmi and her dad. The girl gives her cousin the feeling that she is not fond of him. However, Jakub quickly finds extraordinary friends: he meets a gang of talking dogs. When he finally manages to come to an agreement with his cousin, a new challenge arises, as bulldozers enter Mimmi's favourite park. To make matters worse, one of the dogs is kidnapped. The children and the animals come together to save the green space and to find the missing dog.
