Facets and the Chicago International Children's Film Festival (CICFF) are in search for several teens, ages 13-17, to serve as Facets Film Ambassadors and travel abroad as international film festival youth delegates.

Selected participants will be chosen to attend a film festival in Italy, Canada, India or Korea to jury films, attend filmmaking workshops, and produce a short film. The film festivals include the Giffoni International Film Festival in Giffoni, Italy, Seoul International Youth Filmmaking Camp in Seoul, Korea, Carrousel International Film Festival in Rimouski, Quebec, Canada, and the Golden Elephant Film Festival in Hyderabad, India.

To qualify participants must apply for an audition by April 23 and be currently enrolled or a graduate of Facets Kids Film Camp or Young Chicago Critics, or complete a special media education training session through Facets & the CICFF. Participants are responsible for the cost of air transportation to and from the host country.
