Youth Jury


The Youth Jury is a collection of high school students from the greater Palm Springs area brought together into a group of like minded young people to watch and evaluate a selection of films from our respective film festivals, and ultimately select a film to represent the group as the winner of the Young Cineastes Youth Jury Award. Along with watching and deliberating on films from the festival, the youth jury will have the opportunity to interview filmmakers, festival programmers, and staff to learn more about filmmaking, the film industry, and how film festivals function.  
Please email If you are; or know; a student in the Coachella Valley who would be interested in participating in the Youth Jury.
