Registrations are open for the juries of the Giffoni Film Festival 2018

Registration is open for the juries of the 48th edition of the Giffoni Film Festival. From today, Friday, December 15, it will be possible to send your application to become part of the Giffoni 2018-2020 trilogy.

This year, there will be 4840 jurors ready to animate, through constructive debates and moments of reflection, the cinemas of the Cittadella del Cinema in Giffoni Valle Piana. Different categories: Elements +3 (from 3 to 5 years old), Elements +6 (from 6 to 9 years old), Elements +10 (from 10 to 12 years old), Generator +13 (from 13 to 16 years old), Generator + 16 (from 16 to 17 years old) and Generator +18 (18 yearsold and up). In addition, there will be 400 representatives of the "Parental Experience" section (50 more than last year). An absolute novelty for 2018 will be the addition of the "Senior Juries": a special quota of about 1000 giffoners distributed between sections +6, +10, +13 and +16. The students will be chosen only among those who have never participated in the Festival, and will join the jury also in 2019 and 2020. For the Elements + 6 and Elements + 10 sections it will be sufficient for youth to propose their candidacy, while for the Generator + 13 and Generator + 16, it will be fundamental for families to commit themselves to hosting a peer from an Italian region or from abroad - for all three editions - and to guarantee the participation of their children for the three years.

Elements + 3: will be 500 (200 more than last year). The section is dedicated to young children who during the school year 2017/2018 will have attended or will attend the kindergarten.
