Seeking to be an international festival that wants to give young people a platform, YOUKI emphasises the great importance of creating a diverse program that does not want to set any limits to creativity and broadness of experience! Therefore, there are no requirements regarding formal and aesthetic criteria - only length (max. 20min) and age of the filmmakers (max. 27 years at completion) are decisive for the submission.

From all submissions, a competition programme consisting of approx. 80 films will be shown during the festival week in November. Six awards will be given.
