The JumpCut UK Film Awards 2015

You may have already seen news of the first annual JumpCut UK Film Awards, an online celebration of the best films of 2015, but here’s a quick rundown of some of the details so far.

The JumpCut UK Film Awards will be held in January 2016 (exact date TBC), and will look back at the films of 2015 based on UK releases. The whole JumpCut UK team, along with our official partners will be hosting the event across different platforms including YouTube, podcasts and a few good old, simple printed versions. 

There will be 24 categories in total, looking at individual performances, films and their different genres, technical achievements and a few fun categories thrown in. Whilst the JumpCut UK team and its partners (along with a few special guests) will decide the winners for most of the categories this year, there will be the opportunity for all film fans to get involved and cast their vote in certain categories. 

Two weeks from today, on the 22nd December, we will announce the list of nominees for each category, so look out for that and more updates in the meantime. Oh, and it’s ‘Star Wars’ themed, in case you hadn’t noticed. May the force be with you.
