EFA Young Audience Award 2019

5 May 2019 @ 11:00 am


On Sunday 5th May 2019, Film Grain Foundation will be hosting the European Film Academy Young Audience Award 2019 in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv.

Teenagers aged 12-15 years from Malta are invited to join thousands of kids from around Europe to watch three European films simultaneously. The screenings offer a unique opportunity to discover great European films that reflect the realities of young people all over Europe.

Each film will be discussed with film educators and film professionals and the attendees will get in touch with their fellow jury members in other countries via chatrooms setup for the event and will then vote for their favourite film.

The European Film Academy’s Young Audience Award unites 12-14-year-olds in 55 cities in 34 countries from Iceland to Malta, from Portugal to Croatia.

Following are the films selected for this year’s edition of The European Film Academy’s Young Audience Award:
