Ambassador activity : Young Jury Prize of the Âge d’Or Festival

Available language: en


Age: 16-25
Sessions: 10
Session's duration: 8h


Taking its cue from Luis Buñuel’s film, L'Âge d'Or Prize was conceived by the founder of the Royal Belgian Film Archive Jacques Ledoux, to support the production of poetic, subversive and innovative films. In 2014, L'Âge d'Or Prize became L’Âge d’Or Festival and is today, in compliance with the initial objectives, a bold annual film program aiming to deconstruct and criticize conformism in both cinema and society. In addition to thematic retrospectives and the screenings of film restorations, to performances and debates, a competitive section has been created to highlight films produced within the last two years. Throughout its different sections, the festival chooses not to make a distinction upon genre, nor does it wish to confine itself to a specific format. Before and during the Festival, the Young ambassadors will be focused on : - enrich their own thinking and creative approach while being in contact with innovative filmmakers, experimental shorts, unexpected and strange masterpieces from all around the world... - promote the festival through their own networks, as students as well as emerging artists - intervene in and around the festival, using their own and personal expression modes (cinema, writing, photograhy, sound design ...) - work closely with the programming team of CINEMATEK - and of course, award the Young Jury Prize to one of the films in competition! L’Âge d’Or Festival offers a space where cinema is rethought. It is a film festival with throbbing faith in compelling images, in the power of editing and the strength of sound… and silence. A festival of cinematic experience(s), for both filmmakers and audience. And Young ambassadors! The festival will take place at CINEMATEK, from the 6th to 11th of October 2016.


The Framework sets out a series of outcomes to which any film literacy programme or project, be it in the formal education or informal education sector, could realistically aspire. It is not expected that any one project could deliver all of the outcomes in the Framework, but rather it is hoped that by placing the critical, creative and cultural dimensions alongside each other that it will be possible for project developers to explore issues and outcomes beyond their own current practice.
