The BFI is putting out a call for children UK-wide, aged 12 to 14, for an event in which they watch three European films and decide the winner.

Young film fans have a new opportunity, courtesy of the BFI. 12 to 14 year olds have the chance to be a UK youth juror for the annual EFA Young Audience Award. Judges in 42 countries watch the same three new European feature films and decide their winner.

It’s completely free, as well.

The European Film Academy’s Young Audience Award takes place online and in local cinemas around the world. In the UK jurors can take part online from Monday 7th – Sunday 13 November and, if they’re in or near London, also join in person at BFI Southbank on Saturday 12th November.

As well as watching the films, there are also opportunities to meet other UK jurors and the films’ directors and stars to chat about the films online in secure sessions hosted by BFI Education and the YAA team. On Sun 13 Nov the livestreamed EFA Young Audience Award Ceremony is at 19:00.
