The Collective Film of Lake Como Film Festival


#REALWINDOWS is Lake Como Film Festival’s Instagram hashtag, which will collect landscape views from windows from all over the world.

At this very unique moment, when all activities (including cultural activities) are on hold, we feel the need to involve our audience in a collaborative project for a collective film, to capture the only landscapes we can currently enjoy: those we see from our windows. We will collect all videos and edit them into a single film. A long sequence of individual postcards to visualize and remember this unique moment in history.

Care to participate? Then shoot a short video from your window, showing your view on the outside world during these days of self-isolation.

To take part in our collective film #REALWINDOWS | A WORLD ON HOLD send* (please see waiver below) a short video of up to a minute with your view on the outside world from your window.
