This event has been created with the aim of strengthening and motivating the professional development of Iberoamerican critics, through the exercise of writing and exchange about the audiovisual field. Those selected will participate in the Youth Jury that will award the Best First Feature Award in the competition of the 35th edition of the Festival, to take place from November 21 to 29, 2020, online.
