Join International People's Jury at Five Flavours Film Festival!
Do you want to learn more about Asian films and culture? Do you love talking about cinema? Are you ready to meet people enamored with Asia from all over Europe? We invite you to join the Five Flavours’ extraordinary Jury! You can send in your application till September 27.
The Jury will be comprised of 12 people from Poland, Italy, Finland and the Netherlands who will participate in Jury discussions and film workshops! The organizes cover travel expenses and provide housing and board.
People's Jury is a unique project in which it is not the industry specialists, but the passionate, energetic cinema lovers who judge the competition films and decide which of the Festival titles receives the Grand Prix. In 2021, the Jury is a part of the Asian Cinema Education project and, for the first time, will be truly international in character!
The idea behind the International People's Jury is simple – 12 Asian cinema fans (three from Poland, Italy, the Netherlands, and Finland respectively) meet in Warsaw at Five Flavours FF to watch and discuss titles of the New Asian Cinema competition section, and choose its winner. The jury deliberations are accompanied by workshops of festival and journalistic skills.
During an 8-day intense stay in Warsaw, Jury members will have a chance to widen their film horizons, improve their writing and editing skills, learn about different aspects of organizing a film festival, and participate in the dynamic festival life.
How to join the People's Jury?
To become a member of the International People's Jury, you are asked to discuss your favorite Asian movie in English, in 1500-1800 characters, and write a short cover letter.
