RIIFF Student Jury Recruitment:

This year, we are very pleased to announce that we are launching a new Student Film Jury program. This new program will offer local high school students the unique opportunity to participate directly in an internationally recognized film festival, as well as aid in the festival’s long-standing commitment to community outreach and education.

The student jury will be made up of a selected group of Rhode Island high school students who are entering their junior or senior year; though students who have graduated this year are also encouraged to apply.

Accepted applicants will become student jurors in the only OSCAR qualifying film festival in New England. The students will screen a selection of films (narrative, documentary, shorts), deliberate, and present the Student Jury Award, at the festival’s award ceremony. Students will also have the opportunity to meet with the various filmmakers, actors, and industry professionals from around the world, as well.

This program offers a terrific opportunity for high school students. It will not only make a great addition on the student's resumes and college applications, but it will also expose students to the very large entertainment industry, where they will have the chance to network and make contacts for their future.

The program will be accepting applications through July 19th, 2010. All applications will then be immediately reviewed and acceptance notifications will go out. The application and additional information will soon be up on the website, though anyone interested is encouraged to e-mail us now. This year's festival runs August 10th - 15th.

We are excited to be launching not only the next generation of filmmakers, but also the next generation of film enthusiasts.

For information on how to apply please e-mail: Student Jury Coordinator, Tim Mendonca
