The EFA Young Audience Award takes place on the 5th of May. All children from 12 – 14 years old are invited to participate

The EFA YOUNG AUDIENCE AWARD presents three European films to 12-14-year-old audiences across Europe. They watch the nominated films in closed jury screenings and it is the young audience that decides on the winner right after the screenings. In a truly European vote, jury speakers then transmit the national results live via video conference to Erfurt (Germany) where the winner is announced in an award ceremony streamed live on yaa.europeanfilmawards.eu, a special website that offers further information about the nominated films and the participating cities

The EFA Young Audience Award will be presented for the eighth time on Sunday 5th May 2019. On that occasion three nominated films will be screened to young audiences across Europe, which will then vote to decide the winner.

The European Film Academy Young Audience Award is organised and presented by the European Film Academy and EFA Productions with the support of the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung (MDM). Media partner is FRED FM Film Radio. With the support of the Creative Europe MEDIA Sub-Programme, the nominated films are also made available as VOD across Europe.
