All International, National and Regional South Australian Jury Members will be supported and looked after by their own assigned ‘Buddy’. These buddies are local metropolitan Teenagers from Adelaide.

The AIYFF will engage at least one or two Adelaide schools to sign up for the ‘Buddy System’.

Buddies will be required to attend all the screenings, events and activities that their International, National or Regional SA Jury members will be attending throughout the four-day festival program. The Buddies also form an integral part of the Youth Jury.

The buddies and selected South Australian Jurors, together with the international and national jurors will debate and determine whether the films contribute to the theme UPLIFT.

If your school would like to participate as a recognised “Buddy School’ then please register below.
