For a third consecutive year the Republic of Macedonia, the City of Skopje and 71 youths from the country joins the European family for the pan-European event - EFA Young Audience Award, dedicated to young film lovers, in organization of the Eurpean Film Academy.

The youths from our country and 36 other cities from 31 European countries had the deciding vote and awarded the best European film in the category and the votes of each participant city were transferred via a video conference to Erfurt, Germany where the award ceremony took  place at the end of the day.
