TCM will continue to sponsor the Youth Award for the third consecutive year at the coming edition of the San Sebastian Festival, to take place from September 17-25.
The jury deciding the award is made up of 75 young people between the ages of 18 and 25 years, who give points to the films after every screening. The points chart and ranking of the favourites is updated daily and can be followed in the official Festival media.
The films competing for the TCM Youth Award are all those participating in the New Directors section and the first and second features by filmmakers presenting their works in Horizontes Latinos. Almost thirty titles compete, meaning that the jury members commit to watching an average of three films every day.
According to Guillermo Farré, head of the WarnerMedia entertainment channels in Spain, France, Africa and MENA: “At TCM and WarnerMedia we are hugely excited to continue our collaboration with the San Sebastian Festival. One of our core missions is to bring the best movies of all time to the new generations and we are delighted to sponsor the Youth Award yet another year. We hope that the 75 jury members thoroughly enjoy the experience”.
The award will be presented on Saturday 25 September, with the presence of Guillermo Farré as the head of TCM Spain, together with a personality from the world of cinema and a member of the youth jury to be announced during the course of the San Sebastian Festival.
