YOUKI-Trailer 2023

Does free fall symbolize the turbulence that comes with a life as a filmmaker? Maybe. Can you get a serious eye infection from hanging upside down? Apparently! Should a festival trailer directly reference an event and its ideas, or should it stand for itself - a cinematic work of art? I don't know. Has YOUKI been a haven, catapult, and parachute for young filmmakers for 25 years? Yes.

In the trailer for the anniversary edition, Philipp Feichtinger focuses on the importance of the International Youth Media Festival. The acting was done together with the YOUKI team and one of the festival’s founding fathers - director Andreas Gruber. 

Philipp Feichtinger likes tomatoes with mozzarella as well as drinking from public water fountains. He is also a sound designer, producer for advertising film and studied time-based and interactive media at the Linz University of Art. As part of the YOUKI director-duo, he realized the 2021 and 2022 festival editions.

Since 1998, the International Youth Media Festival has been the place where young people, cinema, music and media come together. YOUKI supports newcomers to the film industry, provides stages for new bands from Austria, develops media education programs for schools and gets children and young people excited about cinema and film.


Film Education & Teaching

With school in the cinema or the cinema at school. YOUKI offers an exciting range of workshops for students and apprentices, ranging from the basics of film analysis and media understanding to the foundations of film production.
