YAAAS! Competition

The YAAAS! Competition is one of the four competition sections, and one of the modules of the YAAAS! Youth Program at CROSSING EUROPE that established a holistic program for film literacy, the acquisition of media competency and DIY-video production in 2019.

In the YAAAS! Competition, the YAAAS! Youth Jury awards the winner of the festival prize CROSSING EUROPE Award – Youth Jury (€ 3000,- powered by VdFS Verwertungsgesellschaft der Filmschaffenden).

The YAAAS! Competition is a selection of current European feature films that were hand-picked by the YAAAS! Young Programmers. After a rigorous sighting process they decided on six feature films that deal with the living realities of youths and young adults in Europe in different ways.

Three of these titles will also be screened within the framework of school screenings:
