March 31, 2020

ATHENS – The European Film Academy is inviting young people aged 12-14 to participate in the selection process of the film to be honoured with the 2020 European Youth Audience Award. The three nominees (“Rocca Changes the World” by Katja Benrath from Germany, “My Brother Chases Dinosaurs” by Stefano Cipani from Italy, “My Extraordinary Summer with Tess” by Steven Wouterlood from the Netherlands will be available on the Festival Scope platform from April 23 to April 25, while voting for the best film and the winner will be held online on Sunday, April 26, simultaneously in 40 countries.

In Greece, the Hellenic Film Academy is organising the event for the fourth successive year, but for the first time in collaboration with the country’s film festivals for children and young people: the International Olympia Film Festival for Children and Young People, the Child and Teen International Film Festival of Athens and Cinedoc Kids. The Hellenic Film Academy invites young film lovers from Greece to participate in the selection of the winner of the European Youth 2020 Award, through a process that will take place remotely due to the restrictive measures now in place.
