27 Times Cinema

27 Times Cinema allows 27 young film-lovers, each representing one European country, to attend the Venice International Film Festival.

For the 13th year in a row,  27 cinephiles chosen out of hundreds of candidates on the basis of their originality, commitment, passion for film and communication skills, will have the opportunity to watch all films in the Giornate Degli Autori selection and as offcial jurors they will select a film for the GdA Director’s Award of €20,000.

During Venice, they also participate in round-table discussions and debates with film industry professionals, critics, filmmakers and European Parliament members.

After the Festival, their journey continue back home where they become ambassadors and influencers for the Lux Audience Award, leading the biggest jury in Europe they will be promoting the nominated films in their own country during the voting campaign.
