• THEY WILL BE CHARGED WITH GIVING THEIR OWN AWARDS TO THE BEST SHORT FILM AND FEATURE FILM FROM THE SECCIÓN OFICIAL

• RENFE IS JOINING THE JURY’S SELECTION WITH AN INTERRAIL AWARD
The Gijón/Xixón International Film Festival, following its founding tradition of being an open door for the incorporation of young people to the world of the Seventh Art, is again making a call for its Jurado Joven. It is a jury present in the FICS from the time of its inception, and it will award, as its traditional, the prizes for best feature film and best short film in the Sección Oficial according to their own criteria.

The jury will be made of twelve people, boys and girls, who will watch all the films present in the Sección Oficial ( both short films and feature films) to select the best amongst them. Moreover, they will live the unique experience of living a Film Festival from the inside, getting to know firsthand the filmmakers, actors, actresses, other juries, etc.
