A Matinee in the Pferdestall

It was fun again, and the audience was enthusiastic about the variety of the film entries shown: 14 works from the film programme of the Euro-Filmfestival 2018 in Bludenz, selected and informally presented by me as country representative of Forum North.

On 20 October, around 45 film-makers from Northern Germany met in a convivial get-together for coffee and cakes in the "Pferdestall", in Ammersbek, the venue on Hamburg's north-eastern border. Although 15 people from Northern Germany had travelled to Bludenz and enjoyed the festival, the response to this matinee was surprisingly high, despite it not being a public event. This meeting once again proved that sociability and film presentations go hand in hand.

The time before the start of the event and in the generous breaks were enthusiastically used for talking. The happy faces of the guests and the positive comments on this gathering of the Eurofilmers were at once the reward and the impetus for the organiser and the diligent helpers, who were happy to provide material and time for their hobby and the EAK. Without them events like this afternoon would not be possible.

Many thanks to all of you who contributed to the EAK in this way. I look forward to the next time!
