The Franco-German Youth Office (FGYO), official partner of the Berlinale, is calling for applications for the “FGYO-Award Dialogue en perspective” jury in the Perspektive Deutsches Kino section.
Starting now, young film lovers can apply to become jury members for the independent Berlinale award “FGYO-Award Dialogue en perspective”. The prize is donated and endowed with 5,000 euros by the FGYO, and will be awarded at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival (February 5 – 15, 2015) to a film in the Perspektive Deutsches Kino section.
Seven German and French cineastes aged between 18 and 29 will be selected as members of the jury. German actress and director Marie Bäumer will be the jury president for the 12th edition of the award. All those who have a passion for discussing films and are able to express themselves in both German and French, can apply. The FGYO offers young people who enjoy lively debates with other film lovers the unique chance to experience and actively participate in the Berlinale 2015.
The deadline for applications is Wednesday, November 05, 2014 (at midnight).
The seven jury members will be invited to Berlin for the entire festival. The jury will watch all Perspektive Deutsches Kino films during the Berlinale, and afterwards present the award to the director of the winning film.
For the Franco-German Youth Office, the aim of the “FGYO-Award Dialogue en perspective” is to promote an intercultural dialogue between young German and French audiences, and inspire interest for German film. The prize will be awarded to a film that appeals equally to critical young people of different cultural backgrounds. In 2014, the film Anderswo (Anywhere Else) by Ester Amrami won the award.
