Youth Jury

Find out which films our youth jury viewed with a critical eye this year and which film has won the Youth Jury Award.

Practical information

While the programmers have been occupied with programming, and the volunteers have been busy preparing themselves for the exciting weeks of LIFF ahead, the 2023 youth jury has quietly been assembled. And we are ever so excited to introduce our members to you! That, however, will have to wait a little while longer, so that our team can prepare themselves for their noble task in peace.

Sign up!

To alleviate a little of the tension we can share the line up of films that this year’s jury will judge. On Saturday 28 October and Sunday 29 October, our jury members will watch the following films:

The Sweet East.
Chronicles of a Wandering Saint.
Humanist Vampire Seeking Consenting Suicidal Person.


After two long, intense days, and hours of careful deliberation our jury has decided which movie deserves the Youth Jury Award. Chronicles of a Wandering Saint has been chosen by our jury!

About the jury

The Youth Jury has been part of the festival since 2021. The jury consists of young people aged 17 to 25. During the festival, you will watch a selection of films specially chosen for the jury. Together you choose the best film from this selection.

Besides watching films, you will spend the days together and receive a number of lectures beforehand that will help you choose the films during the festival. LIFF brings together young talent and enthusiasm with the Youth Jury. The Youth Jury adds a new, fresh perspective to the film festival.
