Become a member of our IFFR Youth Jury

International Film Festival Rotterdam gives young people a voice. Through the Youth Jury, young people can decide for themselves which film should win an award. The film that they find best, goes home with the IFFR Youth Jury Award and will find itself in the international spotlight.

Who are we looking for?

IFFR is looking for five film fanatics with an open mind and a critical eye. These young people are not afraid to give their opinion, but are good listeners as well. They are film lovers that are curious and open to learn more about watching and reviewing films. As a jury member you can immerse yourself in the festival and together with your colleagues you decide which film wins the IFFR Youth Jury Award.

What do we offer?

An unforgettable festival experience during which you watch and review films for four days. In addition, you will visit events and parties to meet filmmakers and other professionals. Through your participation in the IFFR Youth Jury you prepare your network and you get the opportunity to dive into the world of film in just a short period of time.
