Dear Friends: Tourists, Adventurers, Wanderers and Planet-Trotters!
Dear Filmmakers and Audience!
We welcome you to the
XXth edition of YouShoot International Film Festival 2018
to be held in Kazan, Russia from April 7 to April 21.
Deadline for submissions: March 31, 2018
Devoted to travel, adventure and tourism, we are passionate about exploring our Planet.
YouShoot film festival started out in 1999. It was meant to reflect our passion for traveling
and help revisit the trips we made around Tatarstan and Mari republics as rafters through film.
Yushut river has been the main rafting route and gave its name to the festival.
Then, from 2006 filmmakers started to join the festival from all over Russia.
In 2010 the geography expanded to Ukraine and Latvia, and from then on the borders became wider and wider.
In 2018 we already expect entries from all over the globe.
«A hundred-mile trip starts with one small step».
