The section, whose audience is made up of students of secondary and upper secondary education and VET, includes a number of new features this year: on the one hand, it will engage the participation of schools from the whole province, and on the other, the number of daily showtimes rises from two to three: apart from the usual screenings at Teatro Carrión (9.30am & 11.30am), Broadway screen 5 (9am & 1130am) and Cervantes (9am), additional 9am sessions have been scheduled at Broadway (screens 5 & 11) and Teatro Zorrilla.
The selection of titles is also bigger this year, with the following lineup: 303, Barley Fields on the Other Side of the Mountain, The Breadwinner, Ente Gut! (Fortune Favors the Brave), Good Favour , Love, Simon, Microbe et Gasoil (Microbe & Gasoline), Mirai no Mirai (Mirai), Mutafukaz (MTFK), Paisaje, Rauf, Skate Kitchen and Zombillénium. The list of screening titles also includes the Official Section’s entry The Miseducation of Cameron Post, and Meeting Point’s Rafiki.
Seminci Joven is complete with nine shorts screening in two sessions. The section, sponsored by regional daily El Norte de Castilla and the University of Valladolid, includes a cash prize of €6,000 awarded by popular vote among the students attending the screenings. Following vote counting, the award will go to the director of the film reaching the highest score.
