You Judge It – 2016 Winners | Leave a comment

You Judge It

The You Judge It campaign is a peer to peer judging programme of films made by young people from around the world. The You Judge it programme is a unique short collection of films designed for the classroom. It was created for students to share and experience different cultures and ideas as expressed by their peers through the medium of film with hopes that some of these students might get inspired to get started on their own celluloid journey themselves.

It involves a classroom screening of a short collection of films to be followed by discussion and finally, a nomination of the TOP TWO films. Fresh Film Festival will then send your TOP TWO winning filmmakers a peer-to-peer You Judge it award.

Over 100 international shorts were sent out to 12 schools across the country to showcase incredible talent from around the world!
