After a successful online festival last year and an exciting summer edition, we are now really looking forward to the 23rd festival edition in November in Wels.

The competition programme is ready!

During the rainy days at the end of August, we withdrew to the cinema in the Medien Kultur Haus to put together the international short film competition. From 2097 submissions, 60 films by young filmmakers from all over the world made it into the competition program. These can be seen at the festival between November 16 and 20, as usual, at Programmkino Wels as well as online in the KINO VOD CLUB and as a live stream.


YOUKI is an Austrian festival for young media culture that is held annually in November. At its core is the International Film Competition that showcases young filmmakers. Furthermore, YOUKI serves as a platform for representatives of the film, media, and culture industry, and provides experimental spaces, media communication, concerts, as well as discursive events.
