Sitges and the Catalan Youth Agency expand their collaboration

The firmly established Carnet Jove Jury goes international on the occasion of the 50th anniversary and will include European youths

The Sitges – International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia and the Catalan Youth Agency have signed an agreement of commitment for the next four years, with the goal of bringing the film competition even closer to young people. In the agreement signed in Sitges this Tuesday, July 11th, specific activities were determined, all connected via the Carnet Jove de Catalunya youth card.

Like every year, the selection of the members of the Carnet Jove Jury, which will be announced between 4th and 8th September, is already underway. The most film-loving card holders of all have the chance to experience the Festival from the inside, being part of an official Sitges jury. This year, on the occasion of the Festival’s 50th anniversary, the Carnet Jove Jury is going international with the addition of two members, holders of other European youth cards. Meaning that this year, the jury will be made up seven young people: five Carnet Jove de Calalunya card holders, plus two other European card holders.

Sitges 2017 will be hosting a Carnet Jove Card Connect to the Sitges Film Festival Experience, that will be held as a part of the film competition for the purpose of bringing actors and directors closer to their most loyal spectators through a Meet & Greet type get together. Altogether, four card holding young people and their plus-ones, will be able to participate.

The Festival also offers Carnet Jove card holders diverse advantages, which both Catalan and Europeans will be able to enjoy. A 20% discount on the purchase of tickets for any Festival screening, both via advance sales and purchase at the Festival box offices (except for the opening, closing, final day marathons, numbered seating, Passes, Packs and VIP Seats). As well as 50% discounts on the purchase of tickets for certain Festival screenings (these particular screening will be announced via the Carnet Jove Card website).

Card holders will also be able to purchase the special Carnet Jove Pack at a discount price, including five tickets of their choice in any section, time slot and theater, subject to availability.
