Breakfast Club @ YOUKI 2019

Wels: Medien Kultur Haus, 23.11.2019, 11:00 Uhr

Unser Cinema Next Breakfast Club zu Gast beim YOUKI – Internationales Jugend Medien Festival in Wels!

Der Cinema Next Breakfast Club ist ein Frühstücksformat, das wir sonst auf der Diagonale – Festival des österreichischen Films in Graz veranstalten. Der Breakfast Club bietet Raum für Vernetzung und lädt zum Gedankenaustausch ein. Eröffnet wird das Frühstück mit Inputs und Gedanken zum Tagesthema. Diese Statements bieten den Teilnehmer/innen den Impuls zur ergebnisoffenen Diskussion im Plenum.

Das Thema, das wir beim YOUKI mit jungen nationalen und internationalen FilmemacherInnen diskutieren wollen:

Cannes or Youki – or maybe both?

Who would not love to see their films at an A-list film festival like Cannes, Berlinale, Venice? But what does it really mean to go to a big international festival with a short film? Is it really only “Berlinale or bust”, or is there perhaps another world, a world of short film festivals or other platforms, where young authors can do better – and so can their films? Is it all about the glamour and glory of a big festival, or can you as a filmmaker benefit from a community that focuses its know-how and resources on the specific needs of the short film art form? What can smaller local festivals (for example, YOUKI) offer you on your path to a legit film career?

At the Cinema Next Breakfast Club @ YOUKI we will delve into the complex world of film festivals and – after five inputs from young filmmakers and professionals – discuss how not all of them are created equally, especially if you are a young film author in search of visibility and recognition. For which stars at the festival heaven should you reach?

We want to hear about your experiences too! Breakfast (and good times) included!
