Festival 2018

The 27th REC-Filmfestival will took place in the wonderful ufaFabrik in Berlin-Tempelhof from the 19th to 23rd of September 2018.

This were the awarded films 2018

Nearly 700 films from 35 countries had been submitted, that is in total 91 hours. We had selected 69 films from 20 countries:
33 films in the competition REC for Kids (age 6 – 15) and
36 films in the competition REC Internationales junges Filmfestival (age 16 – 27)
This was the  REC Filmfestival 2018 – program english

For „REC for Kids“ we have put together a colorful mixture consisting of many facets – it is about creativity, friendship, problems with parents, district explorations and not to forget: The hunt for dragons. These films are also colourful because they were made in very different production contexts: In media workshops, in schools, with parents or as independent debut works by young filmmakers. We are very happy that there are many films that deal with Berlin, in which the children explore their own environment, their own world.

And we have exciting workshops at the festival: the cimdata Academy of Education offers a workshop for dealing with a professional steadycam. In „Jurassic Park 8“, trailers of fictional films with virtual dinosaurs, animals, elves and gnomes are shot. There is again a radio studio for professional radio productions. Anton Großmann will show how to change from a Youtuber to a successful filmmaker. In another workshop, grandparents and grandchildren will conduct research on the subject of cinema film.

At the end of the festival, the grand award ceremony will take place again. The prizes are
awarded by 6 juries in different prize categories:
In addition to the professional jury with two media pedagogically experienced jurors, „REC for Kids“ also has a jury consisting of three kids, which will also award golden and silver clips in equal measure. So this year „REC for Kids“ will award more prizes than last year. The jury for „REC Internationales junges Filmfestival“ consists of three experienced filmmakers and cinematographers, including a young filmmaker who has won the documentary clip several times in recent years. As in previous years, this jury will again give spontaneous feedback on each individual film immediately after the individual film programmes. And once again this year we will be awarding the docu-clip given by the „International Leiptzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film“. And there is a completely new award: „Ziegler Film“ Production will screen the best Berlin film as pre- film in its cinema, Filmkunst 66 in Berlin-Charlottenburg. In addition, an internship will be offered at one of Ziegler-Film’s next cinema/TV productions.
