Student Critics Jury

Being a part of the EIFF Student Critics Jury is a great opportunity for those in Further or Higher Education in Scotland to experience the festival as a critic and expand their knowledge of contemporary world cinema.

What is Student Critics Jury?

Now in its fourth year, the Edinburgh International Film Festival Student Critics Jury enables students to expand their knowledge of contemporary world cinema, develop their ability to evaluate and write about films and give a prestigious award at EIFF. Members of the jury are selected by our Artistic Director, Mark Adams, from applications received from higher-education and further-education institutions in Scotland.
