2021 Cinemagic ‘Dublin’ Online Jury Panels Open For New Members.

Cinemagic is looking for young people to form a number of film jury panels as part of Cinemagic Dublin’s virtual film festival programme this summer. All young people participating in the jury will watch a selection of international feature films, with film reviewing materials and guidance from Cinemagic before choosing their favourite film. The films will be screened in their original language with English subtitles where necessary. Each Jury panel will meet via zoom after the screenings to debate and discuss the titles.

Age Categories:

Online Jury 8+ (Ages 8-9) 

Online Jury 10+ (Ages: 10-11)

Online Jury 12+ (Ages 12-14) 

Online Jury 15+ (Ages 15-18) 


€5.00 per jury member. 


20 young people will be selected as jurors in each category to watch three films over the course of the festival. Jury participation is based on a first come first served basis.
