APPLICATIONS YOUNG JURY 2021
The 27th edition of the Festival International Nature Namur will take place from Friday 15 to Sunday 24 October 2021. After the success of the first Young Jury for the Festival’s 25th birthday, the FINN calls again for applications to form the Young Jury of 2021.
For its 27th edition, the FINN welcomes a Young Jury during the Focus Environment day. This jury, composed by 5 young people aged betwen 16 to 21 years old, will be supervised and taken care of by the Festival Team on Tuesday 19th and Saturday 23rd of October 2021.
These young people will have the opportunity to watch movies about environmental subjects, meet filmmakers and share their opinion on the films with other members of the jury. They will issue the Environment Award to their favorite film at the Gala of professional films.
Let the young people speak
The Festival wishes to help young people to develop their critical sense towards information transmitted via different ways of communication. In this viewpoint, the young jury is organized as a tool to let young people give their opinion about the cinematographic quality of the documentaries they watched and on the relevance of the subjects in the friendly atmosphere of a film festival.
Call for application for students between 16 to 21 years old
The call for applications is open for young people between 16 to 21 years old. Registrations are open from Monday 1st February to Saturday 1st of May 2021.
To register, the teenagers must fill in the application form that is available below and send it back signed by one of the parents via e-mail or mail.
The preselection lasts until Sunday 2d of May 2021. Before that date, the young people that have registered will watch a series of short films on an online platform. Once they have watched all films, they will have to fill in a form, based on which the FINN’s selection committee will preselect 20 People.
The selection of the 5 members of the Young Jury will take place during the second half of May. The 20 preselected will have an oral interview with the committee of professionals in order to select the 5 participants to the Young Jury. This committee will take into consideration several criteria: the young person’s interest for environmental challenges, the preservation of nature, the cinema and also his/her personality and capacity to express his/her point of view whilst respecting the group.
