upfront! wants to offer young adults from all countries of the EU and the United Kingdom, the opportunity to take a videographic stand on European topics and to promote artistic freedom of expression.
Upfront! is conceived as a “classic” film competition (with public screening, jury, awards ceremony and prizes), but stands out from other film competitions. We call ourselves upfront! because we expect openness, honesty, and directness. upfront! is looking for critical social and political art, experimental and documentary videos that reflect young adults’ view of Europe and the European Union – both positive and negative.
There will be various awards.

Upfront! Young European Video Award is a cooperation between the Filmwerkstatt Düsseldorf (Young Filmwerkstatt Düsseldorf) and the Europe Direct Informationcentre (EDIC) of the City of Düsseldorf.
