Gala & Award Ceremony

Saturday November 20th 8:00 pm


Glamor, glitter, spotlight. The YOUKI Gala is the final part of an intensive festival week. The most important thing: At the award ceremony, the winners of the film competition will be announced, celebrated and awarded with trophies and prizes. But for everyone there are reasons enough to party at the end of a festival. The right vibes come from our musicians Mo + Laurenz during the gala and afterwards from DJ Johnny Yen and the Schlachthof bar team. Thank you, cheers and have a safe trip home!
