Moviezone jury
The youth holds the future, and that’s no different at Imagine. That’s why Imagine has been working with Moviezone, EYE’s educational programme, for several years now. Moviezone has its own jury at Imagine, ranging in age from 16 to 19 years old. The award is a big honour for directors, because it means they managed to reach a young audience with their film as well. The jury will see ten films from all parts of the programme and meet some of the makers. The winner will be announced on closing night.  This year, the jury consists of Arjen de Feijter from Terneuzen (17, also reporter), Iris Vaessen from Mill (17), Kalin Popov from Hoofddorp (18), Fleur Harshagen from Batenburg (16) and Jiska Warmels from Aalsmeer (18). 

Méliès d’Argent and jury
The Méliès d’Argent is the award for the best European fantastic film. The award is an initiative by the European Fantastic Film Festival Federation (EFFFF), which Imagine co-founded. The competition consists of:  Der Bunker – Nikias Chryssos (Germany), Demon – Marcin Wrona (Poland, Israel), They Call Me  Jeeg Robot - Gabriele Mainetti (Italy), The Lure - Agnieszka Smoczynska (Poland), Der Nachtmahr – AKIZ (Germany), Shelley - Ali Abbasi (Denmark), The Survivalist - Stephen Fingleton (United Kingdom) and What We Become - Bo Mikkelson (Denmark).
