The Youth Jury consists of around 300 youngsters from 18-25 years of age.
Participation in the Jury is therefore voluntary and implies the compromise of viewing all of the movies screened opting for the Youth Award. Therefore, members of the Jury must watch a daily average of three films. Students have to commit themselves to attend all the films which compete for the Youth Award, which are the films in New Directors sections and the first and second films participating in Horizontes Latinos section.
The decision to sit on this Youth Jury is voluntary and implies accepting the commitment to attend the screening of all films competing for the award. The Jury members cast several votes a day to choose the winner of the Youth Award. The competition is open to films in the New Directors section, and to first and second works participating in the Horizontes Latinos section. Sitting on the Jury means viewing an average of 3 films a day.
The results of the poll are announced daily on the Official Site, the Festival Diary and at the screen placed in the Kursaal hall.
The young people will also participate in the presentation of the award. The corresponding plaque is presented at the Youth Closing Gala in the Kursaal Centre prior to screening of the winning title.
