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.
