2016 UIFF JURY APPLICATION
WHAT IS A FILM JURY?
At film festivals across the globe, a selection of accomplished and noted filmmakers and professionals within the industry are selected to watch and adjudicate a select series of films (narrative, documentary, animation, short, etc.) and award a prize to the best film in its respective category. The same criteria exist at United International Film Festival.
Those selected for the Jury learn the art of film duration, are able to witness from the inside how a world-class film festival is created and ran, and are able to work with Festival organizers as volunteers while meeting and networking with visiting international filmmakers. The Jury become part of the Festival Team and is given a bird’s eye view of the art and craft and film festival production.
