Archivio Aperto 17th edition

Archive Lovers Labs – Young Jury

Archive Lovers Labs – Young Jury

Archivio Aperto proposes, for its third consecutive year, Archive Lovers, a series of programs addressed to those who wish to learn about or explore archival practices related to private, amateur, and experimental cinema. Aimed at students, researchers, young filmmakers, and moving image curators, Archive Lovers was conceived as an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas, experiences, and visions about the use of archival images today and the role they will play in the future. Archivio Aperto opens its call for applications dedicated to the Young Jury 2024!


Young Jury

(18-26 years old)
Applications > 25/05–25/07/2024


15 young people from all over Italy will have the task of selecting the best work in the official competition from about 20 films, many of them Italian premieres, and the chance to meet international filmmakers and experts.

If you are between 18 and 26 years old and passionate about film heritage utilization, culture, and visual languages, creative and research documentaries, history, and anthropology, a five-day immersion in contemporary cinema and its endless possibilities awaits you.

All the jurors will be provided with accreditation to attend all Archivio Aperto events free of charge. For those living outside the province of Bologna, Archivio Aperto will provide hospitality for all the nights of the festival in an affiliated accommodation.
