Prizren youngsters will vote for the EFA Young Audience Award organized by the European Film Academy in which young audiences in cities across Europe vote for their own favorite children’s film.
The three nominated films MY SKINNY SISTER by Sanna Lenken (Sweden/Germany), THE INVISIBLE BOY by Gabriele Salvatores (Italy) and YOU’RE UGLY TOO by Mark Noonan (Ireland) will be screened to 12-14-year-old audiences in 25 European cities, including Prizren.
The young audience will act as a jury and vote for the winner right after the screenings. In a truly European vote, jury speakers will then transmit the national results live via video conference to Erfurt (Germany) where the winner will be announced in an award ceremony streamed live on yaa.europeanfilmawards.eu. Kosovar actress Arta Dobroshi, directors Daniel Mulloy and Kreshnik Berisha and the Director of the Cinematography Center of Kosovo Arben Zharku will guide the young jurors throughout the voting process.
DokuFest is one of the partners of EFA Young Awards for the second year. The collaboration started in 2013 when our Artistic Director Veton Nurkollari became a member of EFA. As a member, Nurkollari presented the screening of SHORT MATTERS! programme at the festival, casted his votes for the European Film Awards and started the collaboration to bring the EFA Young Awards for the first time in Prizren and in Kosovo.
