I wear only sweat but at least it’s mine

10 videos in this post selected from 116 submissions for the REC A<FAIR.
REC A<FAIR is a German short film competition about Fair Trade organized by Forum Fairer Handel. Recently they announced the winner, see below.

Not all videos which are submitted meet the high communication standards. Special skills are needed to make a good storyline and good editing is crucial. Nevertheless I’m surprised about the amount of videos submitted for this contest.

Most videos are in German but it is obvious what it is about: Fair Trade. All submissions and full credits at the contest website.

The video above is my favourite.
