The films in our Explore Zone understand what it is like to be young now. They reflect the world of Gen Z and the last remnants of Millennials and stimulate all their senses. Our own youth jury is happy to be charmed by these films and yearly presents the Explore Award.
Film Fest Gent will help you select your favourite films from our programme. Via Sections & Tags you can find out which films suit you best. The tag Explore Zone offers a selection of films especially chosen for youth.

Explore Zone Jury & AwardEvery year, five sharp-witted film lovers between 18 and 26 form the Explore Zone Jury. These critical young people judge the films from the Explore Zone tag. As the jury president, StuBru reporter Sander Vandenhende makes sure that there is plenty of discussion and debate!
