Young Critics 2021 © Jeroen Willems
Since 2014, photogénie and Film Fest Gent organize the Young Critics Workshop, open to aspiring film critics (aged 18-26) from Belgium and abroad, offering them the opportunity to cover the festival, guided by Nick Pinkerton and photogénie‘s editor-in-chief.

Selected participants cover the festival by writing both reviews and one in-depth piece. The participants will be guided by film critic Nick Pinkerton (Film Comment, Sight & Sound, Reverse Shot, …) and the photogénie team.
The reviews and articles of the participants may be published on photogénie and on the Festival’s website.
After completion of the workshop, participants can join the photogénie editorial team. This will give them the opportunity to become part of the editorial board for a given year.
The working language is English. At photogénie, we particularly value attention to style, film historical awareness and lucid argumentation.
The next edition of the workshop will take place during the 49th Film Fest Gent, October 11-22, 2022. The call for applications will be launched soon.
