We respect authority, but we look to the future. That’s why every year we eagerly await the verdict on who the YOUNG VOICE award will go to. The film awarded with this prize is chosen by the festival’s youth jury as the most important and relevant for young people.
To become a member of the festival’s youth jury, you need to be aged 18-25 and belong to any formal or informal youth organisation or community and be interested in cinema and human rights, environment, ecology or social or political issues. Jury members, selected through competition from all over Lithuania, not only evaluate the films but also participate in workshops with film industry professionals and express their valuable opinion when preparing the festival’s film programme for young people.
Involving young people, listening to the new generation and inspiring them for human rights and cinema activism is an initiative we share with the European Parliament Liaison Office in Lithuania, Agency of Youth Affairs and Lithuanian Youth Council (LiJOT).
