On December 20 and 21, PRESS RECORD opened its doors to a new crop of unknown Antwerp audiovisual talent. From documentaries to vlogs, music clips and short films, all forms will be covered during this second edition of the film festival.

The common thread between these films? They are Antwerp through and through and were made by filmmakers without professional audiovisual training.

Prizes were handed out by the jury (consisting of Baloji, Heleen Declercq and Inès Eshun), the public and partners BREEDBEELD and Hakuna Academy.

Led by actor and director Adams Mensah, more than 65 unique films were submitted. The final film selection was made by the PRESS RECORD steering committee. It consisted of young and diverse filmmakers who make a lot of noise in today's film world. Mensah curated the festival into an interesting mix that reflects the city.


  • Jury prize: Emanuele Dianotti with Tonight

  • Hakuna Academy: Ayham Qomoq with The Wall

  • WIDESCREEN: monokimono with ice creams
    And 4 passes for Anouk van der Wegen, Xray, Ben Verrept, Joachim Pierre

  • Audience Award: Rafik Bobo with Bad Boys
