The YOUKI International Film Competition awards six film prizes each year. In addition to prize money, the winners receive individual trophies. YOUKI is again looking for an artist in residence, who will design the trophies during the festival week from October 11 to 15! Submit your ideas and become part of the festival!

Now that the submission phase is over, we are busy screening the films from over 70 countries. In addition, we are preparing a diverse cinema and side programme and are looking very forward to welcoming you in Wels from October 11th to 15th. You can find more info about the festival in general here.

On July 30th we will make a trip to Scharnstein to Moserei. There we will show a summery short film programme from the YOUKI archive at an open air screening! More infos soon!

Most of the programmes of the 2021 festival edition had to be canceld due to.. you know why... All the already planed side events for our focus programmes LOST & FOUND, the nightline and some programmes for school classes will be made up between June 15th and 17th 2022. Check the programme here!

YOUKIzine is an annual magazine that is produced during the festival week and published the following year. In 2021 articles on the topic Lost & Found, reports on events and interviews with people involved in the festival were produced together with NAKE-Magazin. >> Get to the YOUKIzine articles
