Sixteen Springfields across America are competing to host the world premiere of The Simpsons movie. Officials in the towns and cities have been invited to shoot a short film about their links to the cult cartoon show, which is set in a fictional Springfield. The Simpsons creator Matt Groening will judge the contest and the premiere will be held in the town or city with the best film. THE SIMPSONS: THE MOVIE will open in America in July (07).
