Youth Jury 2016
For the first time DOK Leipzig is seeking out its Youth Jury members in collaboration with Leipzig's international film school. Students from all Leipzig schools are being called on to become a part of this year's Youth Jury. As well as a full film programme, jury members can expect exciting discussions during festival week (31.10. – 06.11.2016). Members of the Youth Jury will also have the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes at DOK Leipzig, talk to international filmmakers, get to know the international film scene and take part in exclusive festival events. On the Saturday of the festival, the jury will select the winner of the Young Eyes Film Award and present the prize at the official awards ceremony.
