OPEN THE AMPLIFY YOUNG PEOPLE’S JURY PROGRAMME
AMPLIFY YOUNG PEOPLE’S JURY PROGRAMME
The AMPLIFY Young People’s Jury Programme (YPJP) is now open!
We seek to nurture visual literacy, criticism & decision-making skills amongst the Young Jurors for the AMPLIFY festival.
In this programme, participants will be watching all the films programmed as part of the Main Competition, working together to reach a final decision. The Young Jurors will also attend a curation of workshops and masterclasses to help further their understanding and nurture their appreciation for cinema.
The programme will culminate with the Young Jurors awarding the Young People’s Jury Prize to one of the films competing in the Main Competition during the awards night. In this year’s run of the programme, there will be an added focus on criticism within film, with each Young Juror contributing an article towards the festival blog.
Participants of this year’s YPJP will take part in online sessions which include film criticism workshops and live chats with writers from around the region. They will also be provided the platform to engage in discussions with their fellow jury members. They will have the opportunity to publish their writings on the films in the form of an online festival blog.
ONLINE DELIVERY – Given the current COVID-19 situation, most of the programme will be delivered on
online platforms to ensure the safety of all participants, improving accessibility for everyone by eliminating
BE A PART OF THE FESTIVAL – Beyond the opportunity to watch the films to be screened, participants will
have their say in shaping which film will be awarded the Young People’s Jury award-winner amongst the
features and documentaries in the competition this year.
MASTERCLASSES – Participants will have the chance to attend masterclasses delivered by industry professionals who will be sharing their personal insights and help guide the participants as they venture into film criticism.
