YAAAS! What is it?

YAAAS! is the youth program of the CROSSING EUROPE Film Festival in Linz that takes place every year in the end of April in Linz (AT). To call out YAAAS! means to euphorically say “yes!” - “yes!” to a program that does not only aim to present finished content, but rather to produce VIDEOS in internationally mixed teams that are then presented and discussed within a FILM PROGRAM that is selected by people of the same age, to try out new techniques in a WORKSHOP RALLY or find out about them in FACE TO FACE talks with professionals in small groups.
With the YAAAS! Youth program, CROSSING EUROPE 2019 intends to create a holistic offer for film education, the acquisition of media competence and DIY-video-production skills. YAAAS! is aimed at people between the ages 15 and 20, who thereby get the chance to engage with (international) media professionals, learn new skills in the area of film, watch and discuss films, as well as present their own work in the framework of a professional film festival. YAAAS! invites you to take a whiff of the festival air together with other youths.
