FIPRESCI - Credits
The jurors will view films from various strands of the EIFF 2014 programme and complete reading assignments and reviews of films; ultimately determining the recipient of the Student Critics Jury Award, to be presented at the EIFF Awards Ceremony.
Chris Fujiwara, Artistic Director of EIFF, said: “At a time when the role of the film critic and the nature of film criticism are in flux, it’s essential that film festivals affirm the value of informed and intelligent appreciation of films. Our Student Critics Jury programme is intended to do just that, and I’m deeply grateful to James and Morag Anderson, whose continuing support in 2014 will enable us to build on the success of the programme in the two previous years.”
The seven selected students will be brought to Edinburgh for six days of the Festival (EIFF runs from the 18th to the 29th June); accommodation and travel (within Scotland) will be covered by EIFF. The Student Critics Jury returns to EIFF thanks to the generous support of James and Morag Anderson.
2013’s Student Critics Jury members were Vivek Santayana, Catarina Mourao, Ruth Swift-Wood, Rebecca Bowen, Kathryn Craigmyle, Lewis Camley and Phil Kennedy, who awarded the prize to CELESTIAL WIVES OF THE MEADOW MARI, directed by Alexey Fedorchenko, which the Jury called, “a light-hearted, perceptive and beautiful celebration of fading mythologies”.
