A jury of 11–12 year olds will have the opportunity to watch, evaluate and review Fantastic Flix titles from around the world. They’ll confer and then award one lm Best Fantastic Flix Film of 2018. Along the way, their opinions will be featured on ADIFF channels and their names will appear in the ADIFF catalogue. This is a great opportunity for movie mad children to see some great films, share their opinions, and discover the craft of critiquing film.

Fantastic Flix Children’s Jury is in collaboration with The Ark’s Children’s Council and the Irish Film Classification Office.
