Little Zebra Award
MiWY promoted the formation of three juries: two special juries, the Student Jury and the Teacher Jury, and the Audience Jury who assign the official prizes for each edition. The experience of the jury allows both students and teachers to come into close contact with the films of the Festival and to create opportunities for exchange, debate and discovery of new cultures with active participation.
The Student Jury, for the first time set up at regional level, is made up of 78 students from various secondary schools in Milan, Lecco, Lodi, Biella and Forlì and awards the LITTLE ZEBRA Prize to the best short film with an intercultural theme.
In a training course of twelve stages, and with the guidance of competent educators, the students of the Jury experience the difference between a naive vision and a more attentive one, because they view the films twice before deciding the winner and refine their judgments based on the collective comparison, asking several questions on the criteria for a verdict shared by all.
