The youth jury is a unique and essential part of the Reel Youth Film Festival.  
Most festivals are judged by adults who apply the same rules to youth films as they would an adult's film. We think that youth have a better ability to empathise and reflect on their peers messages and tell the rest of the world what messages are most relevant today! As a result, the RYFF showcases more innovative and edgy films than many festivals.
The jury rates the films submissions on their:

            entertainment value,
            technical merit,
            and the message.

Jury sessions are entirely online run and can be done by individuals or       groups. A couple of entertaining hours are spent watching short-listed film submissions, and exploring the finer points of filmmaking.

If you are a youth interested in joining us, or are connected to a group of youth that would like to participate in the jury process, please contact us!
