Each year, the EFA YOUNG AUDIENCE AWARD presents three European films to children aged 12 to 14 across Europe. This year, due to the situation surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak, the EFA Young Audience Award will for the first time take place entirely online in a virtual format. In every participating country, from 23rd to 25th April, the young jurors are going to watch and review the three nominated films through an online platform, Festival Scope. The following day, on Sunday, 26th April, after a video deliberation with film experts and members of the LuxFilmFest team, they will select their winner and transmit their national results in a truly European vote to the EUROPEAN FILM ACADEMY in Erfurt, Germany. The awards ceremony will be broadcast live on the website www.yaa.europeanfilmawards.eu on 26th April at 4PM, where additional information on the nominated films, as well as the 70 participating cities across 41 countries can be found.

Even though the event will be completely virtual, it will keep its important educational aspect from previous years through these novel video discussions.

Participation and the online streaming of the nominated films is entirely FREE OF CHARGE.
