The High School Students' Jury
The High School Students' Jury at the One World Romania festival first took place in 2013. Because human rights documentaries are not subject to hierarchy and competition, this is the only jury of the festival. The jury’s function is to serve as an educational experience for the participants and as a mirror of the youth’s interests and beliefs for both the public and the organizers.
Besides viewing brand new documentaries, the jury’s members have the chance to of meet film directors and producers, to debate contemporary social issues with experts and other teenagers, as well as to to experience an international festival.
The jury members are chosen every year based on an essay competition, the theme of the contest being announced every year, in January.
