Young adults aged 16 to 26 from all EU countries are invited to take a videographic stance on European issues. The theme for the second edition in 2021/22 is "Peace of Mind“.

upfront! is looking for socially critical and political videos that reflect the view of young filmmakers (beginners and advanced) on Europe and the European Union. Submissions can have an artistic-experimental and documentary form - both positive and negative. All art videos that stand out visually and narratively are welcome. "upfron!" means being open, honest, and direct.
Various prizes worth over 3.000 Euro will be awarded at a public award ceremony in the Filmwerkstatt Duesseldorf (and online) around the beginning May 2022. The event will include an extended program with talks, music and special screenings.

Upfront! Young European Video Award is a cooperation between the Filmwerkstatt Duesseldorf (Young Filmwerkstatt Duesseldorf) and the EUROPE DIRECT Duesseldorf.
