Besides the International Jury there is also an Explore Zone jury consisting of young people between 18 and 26.
They follow the Explore Zone Parcours, a selection of films by and for youngsters. In the end, the jury will hand over the Explore Award, which includes a free media campaign in De Morgen and Knack Focus, and on Studio Brussel. That way, the winning film gets a commercial push for the release.
