Ajyal Film Festival returns this October, and they are now looking for the people who are always the stars of the festival-Ajyal Jurors!

Since its inception, Ajyal has brought young people from around the world together in the spirit of cultural exchange and creative interaction. The jury programme scheduled from 1 – 8 October, as always, will provide curated workshops, daily film screenings, jury discussions, and opportunities to interact with global film talent to inspire participants through meaningful creative interactions and cinematic dialogue.

The festival presents their jurors aged 8 to 25 with the exciting opportunity to decide Ajyal’s competition winners. The directors of the winning films are granted funding for their next film, so jurors are empowered to support and promote future content that is relevant and meaningful to them. This year’s event will be held through a selection of engaging in-person events and online activations.

The Ajyal Jury Experience – Inspiring the Next Generation

As a member of the Ajyal Jury, you watch films, discuss with fellow jurors and film experts, vote for the winners of the Ajyal Film Festival, and use your energy to bring about positive change far beyond Ajyal.

Jury Categories
There are three Ajyal Competition juries in three age groups. They are:


Mohaq means ‘New Moon’ in Arabic, and these are Ajyal’s youngest jurors, aged 8 to 12. The young people of this jury will watch a programme of short films and four feature-length films.


Ajyal’s jurors aged 13 to 17 make up the Hilal jury – the term means ‘Crescent Moon’ in Arabic. Four feature films and a programme of shorts make up the Hilal jury’s festival programme.


The most mature of Ajyal’s juries, Bader (Arabic for ‘Full Moon’) jurors are aged 18 to 25 and will select their favorite films from four features and a programme of short films.
