2050 Germany

Jugendbüro Nuthe-Urstromtal

In the end, only a few young people survive who no longer know their own identity. A dramaturgically well-written story with an exciting development and an important message. Climate change, apocalypse, humanity. The dystopian film deals with big themes with well-placed special effects, but always leaves their sympathetic actors in the foreground. Props are used imaginatively and the camera is used professionally. The teens have shown a great team effort to make this entertaining film.

Honorable mentions

Alien Angriff / Alien Attac Germany

Medienprojekt Berlin e.V / Anton Johann Hübner, Felix Eduardo Paul

A meteorite crashes to earth, releasing deadly viruses on humanity, and only when a spaceship sends medicine is there hope again. The two filmmakers have processed a red-hot topic with simple, cinematic means. With great sound and self-made drawings they showed us how 9-year-olds would fight Corona. Great job.

Pasuya and Cloud Taiwan
