HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS JURY
As in previous years, the films of the competition will also be watched by a jury made up of high school students. The novelty of this edition is the partnership between One World Romania and Super, the teenagers’ film festival, who will work together to offer the selected youngsters a more in-depth and lasting journey. Being part of the jury of One World Romania festival will only represent the first stage of a true immersion in a different way of making and watching films. The Jury includes teenagers with a good dose of intellectual curiosity, that we will help develop their acuity in perceiving the particularities of film art through a four-day documentary film workshop, which will take place during the festival. Led by three tutors from the Romanian film industry, the participants will carry out practical exercises (photographs and filming) that will make them discover what is at stake when representing reality through a lens. After the One World Romania festival, the selected teenagers will make the selection and organize the projections for the Super 2020 festival.
