REC Festival Internacional de Cinema de Tarragona

Since 2004, REC has aimed to show the public the best cinematic offerings from new directors making films around the world. The festival has become a reference point in the local area, and the festival has an increasingly international reach.

Through Opera Prima (the festival’s official selection), REC chooses the best début films of the year to be awarded several prizes. Directors who have already received awards are also recognised in each edition of the festival.

A series of parallel activities complement the festival programme, such as workshops with industry professionals and talks with experts. The calendar also includes family and student sessions, to expand the festival’s appeal to new audiences.
