The Luxembourg City Film Festival has launched an appeal to find local members of the EFA Young Audience Award.
Members of juries in a record 70 cities in 41 different countries, including Luxembourg, will watch three European films and vote for their winner of the European Film Academy’s Young Audience Award.
Jury members need to be available between 23 and 25 April to watch the three nominated films online. They will also be part of a video deliberation with a film and media literacy expert and members of the LuxFilmFest team on 26 April to select the grand duchy’s winning film. The Luxembourg jury along with others will then transmit their national results to the European Film Academy in Erfurt, Germany. The overall winner will be unveiled at an awards ceremony at 4pm on 26 April, which will be broadcast live from Erfurt on the event’s official website.
