The Montclair Film Festival is offering students in grades 10–12 an exciting opportunity to serve on the Junior Jury. Jurors will meet industry professionals and will learn how to analyze and adjudicate films. They will receive MF student memberships and VIP treatment with free access and reserved seats for select films. After deliberating and selecting the best film in its category, the jurors will present the Junior Jury Award as part of the Montclair Film Festival’s Award Ceremony.

To qualify, applicants must be:

  • In Grades 10 – 12.
  • Available to screen 6 select films during the festival between October 21 and October 30th.
  • Available to participate in jury deliberations and the Junior Jury Award presentation on Sunday, October 30th from 4:00 PM and 8:00 PM.
