YOUKI is a vivid communication platform for the popularization of media culture. In essence, YOUKI may be described as a comprehensive and passionate celebration of media.

The festival's 'International Film Competition' showcases outstanding short films (up to 20 minutes) from directors aged 10 to 26. Out of more than 500 competition-submissions, YOUKI annually screens around 90 films from every continent. Therefore it is Austria's biggest up-and-coming media festival with an international focus.

Beyond that, YOUKI assembles various initiatives: workshops on theory and practice in film, print media, radio and internet; curated special programs like the discursive “Media Meeting”, art projects including media invasions in urban space as well as daily concerts, parties and much more.

The YOUKI Festival is held annually in Wels, Upper Austria, and gathers a diverse young audience including film enthusiasts, industry professionals, media fans, media teachers and – of course – young filmmakers.
