Sheffield Doc Fest Youth Jury Applications Now Open




Sheffield Doc/Fest is thrilled to welcome the Youth Jury programme for its 11th year in 2017. Five young film enthusiasts will be offered the opportunity to meet key figures within the industry, curate a selection of films for the Festival, and select the winner of the Youth Jury Award announced at the Sheffield Doc/Fest Awards Ceremony.


If you are aged 18-22, based in the UK, and have a passion for documentary and the media industry, this is the programme for you.


This free programme is a tremendous way to see how an international film festival and jury work, and will allow you to have your say about the best documentary films being made today. Previous Youth Jury Award Winners have included Sonita (2016), 3 ½ Minutes, 10 Bullets (2015) and The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz (2014).


Applications are open until Monday 9 January 2017 at 12:00 (midday GMT).


Interviews will be held at the Sheffield office on Thursday 19 & 20 January 2017. Unfortunately we cannot cover travel for this, but please do get in touch to discuss further.
