Arts Council - Become a Sheffield DocFest Youth Juror, Sheffield

Attention young film enthusiasts..........
Open call for applicants to Sheffield DocFest's 2022 Youth Jury programme. Five young film enthusiasts will be offered the opportunity to meet key figures within the industry including our 2022 Guest Curator Asif Kapadia (Senna, Amy, Diego Maradona), to curate a selection of films for the Festival, and select the winner of the Youth Jury Award.

If you are aged 18-23, based in the UK, and have a passion for documentary and the media industry, this is the programme for you. No special qualifications or experience are required to apply. This is a free programme that aims to offer opportunities for young people wishing to learn about or enter the film industry, from production to distribution, curation, film marketing and criticism.

Successful applicants will attend a two-day Youth Jury Lab in London on 17 and 18 February. During the Lab you will meet leading organisations from across the industry of production, distribution, curation and exhibition of film. Jurors will attend a further one day lab in April in Sheffield to finalise their programme nominations and festival preparation.

Youth Jurors will also receive a Full Festival Pass to attend Sheffield DocFest 2022.
You will attend screenings of the selected Youth Jury films and a deliberation during the Festival, selecting the winner of the Youth Jury Award 2022.

Travel and accommodation costs will be provided for both the London Lab and Sheffield events.
