About URTI: 

My experience as Jury for the 39th International URTI Grand Prix for Author's Documentary was eye-opening. I was watching up to three films a day for a month and a half in order to be precise and on time. 

I had the chance to explore many stories from different parts of the world. As informative as it was, I also found it as a self-development process since I had the chance to learn how to keep an audience watching my film. 

It takes the audience 10 minutes to realize if your film is worth staying until the end; or if it is worth voting for. 

I voted on my own criteria based on my knowledge, experience and expertise to ensure I was being fair as Jury. 

Finally, it was an honor to have been a Jury for the 39th International URTI Grand Prix for Author's Documentary.
