The Time to #stayhome. Turn to nature and dream. video awarded at the SILAFEST 2021

This year’s 13th edition of SILAFEST took place from August 27 to September 2. The jury evaluated about sixty films and among the winners was also The “Time to #stayhome. Turn to nature and dream.” Video, which already got awarded at several festivals and renowned tourism events, including The International Tourism Film Festival Turkey, The ITFF competition in Africa, ETC-CIFFT 2020 competition and The Golden City Gate Awards at the ITB Berlin. 

The winning video was created by the production house TENT, headed by the internationally renowned photographer Ciril Jazbec, and launched in April last year, during the first wave of the epidemic. The video features scenes of relaxed and in-depth contact with the grassy ground, water, trees and local traditions, offering a picture of the future we want to return to.

On this occasion, MSc. Maja Pak, Director of the Slovenian Tourist Board, said: "I am thrilled that the jury of the International Festival of Tourism and Environmental films recognized the sincere message of the Time To Stay Home video, which was launched last spring, during the first epidemic wave. The video does not only showcase the breath-taking beauties of Slovenia, with an emotional voice-over it also emphasizes the importance of collective spirit in battling the coronavirus and thus communicates the values, which our I feel Slovenia brand generally expresses. Such awards raise the global visibility of Slovenia as a sustainable and responsible destination, which is crucial in the post pandemic world." 

The International Festival of Tourism and Environmental Films (SILAFEST) holds Ecology and Tourist film as its basic guidelines and interprets tourism in the widest possible sense. This means that a wide range of different films can apply. Furthermore, the festival also highlights the importance of sustainability, which is in line with the current trends in tourism. The festival is held in Serbia, in the Municipality of Veliko Gradište
