Yim and Yoyo awarded at Oberhausen
8 May 2013
Dutch short youth film YIM & YOYO, directed by Anna van Keimpema, has been awarded at the 60th edition of the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen. The film was selected for the Children’s and Youth Film Competition and received the prize of the Children's Jury of the International Children's Film Competition (1,000 Euros).
Statement of the jury:
Some friends really exist; others exist only in your imagination. These are just as important as the real ones, as our winning film, Yim & Yoyo by Anna van Keimpema, shows. It’s incredibly how much imagination Yim has and how he makes it come alive in his images. Even his fear of speaking is overcome by a little trick of the imagination. We think that this is really admirable, and it also makes you laugh in some places.
