The Jury

The sole object of this competition is to take your film to the big screen. The jury is made up of film professionals who are focused on emerging talent, bringing to the forefront a new type of cinema and independent productions. They fully believe that independent cinema must free itself from financial logic. If the barriers move, it is also thanks to their investment. It’s the public who decides, but the jury will consider the feasibility of each project. You do not know them? Click on their photo.
