Imagine Pitch Contest winner ‘MEET JIMMY’ is being made into an international feature film!

The short Dutch film MEET JIMMY (2018) will become an international feature film! Makers David-Jan Bronsgeest and Tim Koomen direct and (co-) write the film themselves under the wings of Platinum Dunes, the company that bought the film last week.

David-Jan Bronsgeest and Tim Koomen won the Imagine Pitch Contest in April, which gave them a ticket to the Canadian Frontières Festival to pitch their film idea. MEET JIMMY got a lot of interest from Hollywood. According to various domestic and foreign websites, a real ‘bidding war’ arose, after which Bronsgeest and Koomen eventually agreed with the production company Platinum Dunes (under Paramount Pictures). Shokkend Nieuws interviewed the two men, the full interview can be found here.

We are full of pride, joy and joy that “our” Tim and David-Jan are now entering the international market. Good luck!
