Become a part of YOUKI!

Besides film and discourse programmes, YOUKI offers various opportunities to get a practical glimpse into the world of media.

There are a lot of different opportunities to experience, learn, create, play and work at YOUKI. You can gain experience in working with media by creatively helping out in several departments, no matter if you'd like to be part of the festival team or rather work in small groups instead. There will also be programmes that are tailored to the needs of school classes, trainees and teachers. Furthermore, multi-day workshops led by experts from the media trade will be available as focused professional opportunities.

Feel like participating? We're happy to hear from you!

Editorial Team

Our editorial team consists of deparments for radio, TV, and our own magazine. Those three areas can impart insights about the world of journalism into keen young prospects. Supervised by experts, we delve into photography, writing, presenting the news and doing radio interviews. Day by day the editorial team will report straight from the festival and enter a discourse with the year's festival topic.

For schools and trainees

Our communication programmes offer a space for school classes and trainees to analyse films, work on art projects or get to know new technologies. By working with experts, we are able to offer a custom-tailored programme taking into account the individual needs of your group. Just write to us an we'll create the perfect YOUKI day for you!


We're always looking for young hosts who'd like to talk to the filmmakers present, following the screenings of our competition programmes. Everyone can use this stage and make their first experiences as a moderator on stage!


Our workshops are geared towards participants who'd like to deepen their knowledge in more focused areas. By working in small groups, they'll be able to experiment in the areas of film, art, and media.
