The young audience will judge My Skinny Sister’s approach to eating disorders among adolescents, The Invisible Boy’s powers, and You’re Ugly Too’s story of an uncle and his niece. Each screening’s jury speaker will transmit the voting results to Erfurt (Germany) via video link, where the winner will be announced at an award ceremony streamed live on their website.
The European Film Academy Young Audience Award is organised and presented by the European Film Academy and EFA Productions, with the support of the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung (MDM).
