Become a Juror for Ajyal Film Festival 2019


Red carpet, international stars, local film premieres - never has a festival of this magnitude been so close and exclusive to you.

As a member of the Ajyal Jury, you watch films, discuss with fellow-jurors and film experts, vote for the winners of the Ajyal Film Festival, and use your energy to bring about positive change far beyond Ajyal.

The experience of being an Ajyal Juror is unparalleled: an inspiring and creative hands-on experience that not only instills an appreciation of good cinema, but also the values of team work, critical thinking and leadership.
