EFA Young Audience Awards seeks young participants for Irish jury panel
26 Feb 2020 : News Desk
European Film Academy's Young Audience Awards
Galway Film Fleadh in association with Galway 2020 and the Pálás Cinema have partnered with the European Film Academy (EFA) to take part in the EFA’s Young Audience Award.

Join the Irish delegation on Sunday 26th April at Pálás, from 9 am-7 pm, and be part of Europe’s biggest film jury.

The EFA Young Audience Award is a simultaneous, Europe-wide, film viewing event for young people aged between 12-14 years. Kind of like the Eurovision, but for films and participation is free. 

Key information about the event:

  • On Sunday 26th April three nominated films are screened in 67 different cities, in 40 different European countries 
  • Each participating city involves an audience of young people  
  • The young audiences act as a jury and vote for their favourite film 
  • All participating cities interact with each other via video conference and social media 
  • Film professionals and educators lead the audience in discussions about the films they’ve seen 

The highlight of the day is the ceremony in the evening, during which the audience transmits the results of the national votes.

Why should I take part in the jury? Being on the jury for the Young Audience Award: 

  • offers a unique opportunity to discover great European films   
  • presents films which reflect the realities of young people all over Europe  
  • raises interest in European stories, people, cultures, and societies   
  • builds bridges to exchange different points of view  
  • increases awareness of important social issues  
  • stimulates commitment, a sense of community, understanding, and tolerance  

“The Young Audience Award was a fun and enjoyable experience which taught me a lot. I have learned about critiquing movies and it has broadened my interest in film and drama” - 2019 Jury Member Maya Bacci

How can I be part of the jury? 

  • for young people aged from 12-14  
  • You must be attending school in Galway City or County  
  • You must have an active interest in cinema
