SHARJAH, 26th July, 2022 (WAM) — The Sharjah International Film Festival for Children and Youth (SIFF) has launched a four-phase ‘Junior Jurors’ training programme to support and develop the capabilities of talented children and youth aspiring to be jury members in the Child and Youth-made Film category at the ninth edition of the festival set to kickstart in October this year.

Launched at Al Majaz Amphitheatre yesterday, the training programme will be held over four days each month until October. The young participants will learn the basics of film appreciation and gain insights into cinematic art including photography, directing, acting, and story development.

On Day 1 of the training programme, trainer Fatima Musharbak briefed participants on SIFF, highlighted its values and mission, drew attention to the influential guests it hosts every edition, and elaborated on its target audience. Young participants also watched a film highlighting previous editions of the festival and its wide range of activities including workshops and panel discussions.

The young participants will also be introduced to junior jurors of previous editions. With the participation of 25 children and youth, the first phase of the training will conclude on July 28.

At the workshops scheduled in August, participants will be trained in analysing and critiquing films. In September, jurors will present a detailed review of a film of their choice and will also receive training in building an understanding of the processes involved in selecting the winning film. The fourth set of workshops in October will outline the tasks and responsibilities of the young jurors at the 9th SIFF ahead of its opening.
