The Ajyal Jury

Red carpet, international stars, local film premieres- never has a festival been so close and more exclusive to you.


As a member of the Ajyal Jury, you watch films, discuss with fellow-jurors and film experts, vote for the winners of the Ajyal Youth Film Festival, and use your energy to bring about positive change far beyond Ajyal.


The experience of being an Ajyal Juror is unparalleled: an inspiring and creative hands-on experience that not only instills an appreciation of good cinema, but also the values of team work, critical thinking and leadership.


Over six days of the Festival, discover cinema from a fresh perspective, and most importantly, make lasting friendships with young people from around the world.


Last year, Ajyal welcomed over 500 young jurors of 54 nationalities. You can be one of them this year!


As an Ajyal Juror, you will:

1. Watch short and feature-length films from all over the world

2. Vote for your favourite films to choose the Ajyal Competition awards

3. Meet film directors and actors attending the Festival

4. Attend workshops on filmmaking techniques and film language
