28 Times Cinema opens call for applications
- The LUX Prize, Europa Cinemas, Venice's Giornate degli Autori and in Cineuropa invite 28 young cinephiles to visit the Venice Film Festival
Since 2010, the European Parliament has supported the 28 Times Cinema project which gives the opportunity to 28 young film-lovers, selected through the cinemas of the Europa Cinemas network, to represent each of the 28 European countries at the Venice Film Festival as jury members of the Giornate degli Autori official competition.
The 28 jurors will award a prize to a film selected in the Giornate degli Autori competition. They will also watch the three films competing for the LUX Prize for which they will be afterwards the ambassadors during the LUX Film Days organized in their respective countries.
During Venice the 28 ambassadors will also be invited to take part in workshops and debates with audiovisual industry professionals and to meet members of the European Parliament’s Culture and Education committee. They will share their experience and their passion for cinema in a blog (here) and through virtual ‘postcards’ sent from the Festival and shared in the LUX Prize, Cineuropa and Europa Cinemas’ social networks.
Visit the LUX Prize website to find which cinemas are taking part in the call for application this year, and learn how to contact them to submit your application.
