However, to fill all this time at home, we came up with a special competition of the REC-Filmfestival Berlin. The #recathome!

You could submit your films with a maximum length of 90 seconds on the topic „stay at home“.

Even though it really was a hard decision for us because you submitted so many amazing films to us, the winners of our #recathome competition are ready to be announced:

The golden #recathome clip goes to
Ulisses, Günes and Tim Steffen with their film “Distance Warrior”!

And the silver #recathome clip goes to
Paulus and the media group Schinew with their film „Hamster„!


You can watch both films soon here and in September at our festival.

We thank you all very much for your participation!
