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.
The experience of being an Ajyal Juror is unparalleled: an inspiring and creative hands-on experience that instills not only an appreciation of film, but also the values of teamwork, critical thinking and leadership.
Over 13 days of the festival, discover global cultures through the powerful medium of film, while making new friends from across the world.
Last year, Ajyal welcomed over 400 jurors of 45 nationalities—you can be one of them this year!
Join the Ajyal Film Festival Jury from 7 – 19 November 2021.
As an Ajyal Juror, you will get to:
1- Watch short and feature-length films from all over the world, both online and in the theatre.
2- Vote for your favourite films and choose the Ajyal Competition winners.
3- Meet internationally renowned and thought-provoking guests.
4- Attend online workshops and masterclasses on filmmaking techniques and film language
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 favourite films from five features and two programmes of short films.
