random ramblings of an unconscious mind

You can become part of the Jury for La Biennale


I have no issue with getting older, in general, but at times I feel that there is an age discrimination, since there are some perks at being young. For example I cannot participate in Europa Cinemas‘ call for youths between the age of 18-25, who will attend and become a member of a jury for the 70th Venice Film Festival (28 August-7 September 2013) at an all expenses paid trip.

DANAOS_avatar_400x270So if you are lucky enough to be young, and love cinema, why not try your luck and participate in this open call (for Greeks, other local cinemas in other countries are responsible for sending their contenders), by sending the required information by the 3rd of April to:


Below is the form send by Europa Cinemas to Danaos Cinema.

Dear cinephile friend, 
Danaos Cinema and Europa Cinemas would like to invite you to take part in the organisation of the fourth edition of ‘27 Times Cinema’! Launched with great success in 2010 in partnership with Venice Days (Giornate Degli Autori), the European Parliament and the Lux Prize, this initiative brings together 27 young moviegoers from the member states of the European Union, inviting them to the next edition of the Venice Film Festival (28 August-7 September 2013). We would be grateful for your support in setting up this Jury of young ‘cinephiles’. The Jury of 27 will be invited to spend 10 days at the Festival watching the Venice Days’ selection and sharing ideas and opinions during debates with filmmakers in attendance. Included in this invitation are the reservations and costs of accommodation and travel for each participant for the duration of the event. Participants will be expected to attend between Wednesday 28th August and Sunday 8th September 2013.

  • Candidates must be 18 – 25 years of age with a good knowledge of English (reading, written and spoken) in order to be able to contribute fully to the discussions about the films and write texts for the blog.
  • Potential applicants should send us a brief CV (in English), a short statement (10 lines max.) outlining the reasons why they should be considered for this opportunity, and a description (5 sentences max.) of 3 scenes from 3 films they have watched recently.
  • PLEASE NOTE: the candidates should under no circumstances work at your cinema or be related to anyone who does.

The selected participants will get a festival accreditation granting priority access to screenings and will commit to:

  • watch all the films presented at the Venice Days
  • watch the films competing for the LUX Price presented in Venice
  • take part in round tables discussions and debates with film industry professionals, critics and filmmakers
  • contribute to a blog, which will be specifically developed for this event
  • contribute to Europa Cinemas social networks
