Five young men and women to make up the 3rd Carnet Jove Jury

The creation of this jury has been promoted for the last three years by the Youth Department, through the Carnet Jove's Connecta't Program, and the competition's management.

The selection commission for the 3rd Carnet Jove Jury, made up of the Sitges International Film Festival of Catalonia's managing team, those responsible for the Catalonian Autonomous Government's Youth Department and those responsible for the Catalan Institute of Cultural Industries, has selected, for the third year straight, the five youths between 18 and 30 years of age who will make up the competition's Carnet Jove Jury. This jury will be in charge of giving the Carnet Jove Jury Award to the best motion picture from the Official Fantàstic Selection and the Midnight X-Treme Section.

The candidates to make up the jury had to be holders of the Carnet Jove or Carnet +25 cards and show a gift, capacity and interest for the movie world and stage arts. Those selected are Mar Canet (29, La Garriga), Néstor Fernández (21, Barcelona), Toni Junyent (24, Barcelona), Aleix Ortuño (21, Sant Cugat del Vallès) and Carles Matamoros (23, Barcelona). The latter is also the president of the jury.

The Carnet Jove Jury will join the rest of the Festival jury members: the Oficial Fantàstic jury, the Mèliés jury, the Anima't jury, the Critics' jury; The Orient Express-Casa Àsia jury, the Noves Visions jury and the Brigadoon jury. The International Film Festival of Catalonia will be held from October 4th to the 14th.

A professional opportunity for young people in the critic's world

The idea of creating the Carnet Jove Jury arose three years ago thanks to the impetus of the Youth Department through the Carnet Jove's Connecta't Program and the Festival's managing team. This initiative is to help young people develop their interests linked to the movie world and give them professional opportunities in the movie critic field through direct participation as jury members of a festival of international renown like the one in Sitges.

The Carnet Jove Jury is also an explicit acknowledgement of the younger public, the most faithful to the Festival since its creation in attendance, both at screenings as well the leisure venues related to the competition.
