They will discuss them with film educators, be in touch with their fellow jury members in other countries - for most of them the first time Europe becomes a real-life experience - and will then vote for their favorite: The European Film Academy’s Young Audience Award unites 12-14-year-olds in 55 cities in 34 countries from Iceland to Spain, from Portugal to Croatia.

Who Will Win this Year's YAA?

The EFA YOUNG AUDIENCE AWARD presents three European films to 12-14-year-old audiences across Europe. They watch the nominated films and act as a jury, voting for the winner right after the screenings. In a truly European vote, jury speakers then transmit the national results live via video conference to Erfurt (Germany) where the winner is announced in an award ceremony streamed live on this website.
