Report of the Forum West 2015.

by Fritz Kümmel

Roswitha Katharina Wirts from Aachen Film and Video Club, brought the Forum West to Düren on Saturday, 25 April 2015. A day earlier, all the helpers met in the afternoon to prepare the room.

Her many helpers present with advice and practical help, included Wolfgang Enge and Horst Krause from the EAK, who hosted the entire competition. The technology was in the hands of Klaus Kraft. After work we all met for dinner and pleasant company.

On competition day, everyone enjoyed a delicious breakfast, which boosted the mood and anticipation of the event. During the breaks, all those present were spoiled by the hosts with delicious food which they praised highly. Roswitha Katharina warmly welcomed all film friends and many guests. There were on average about 75 spectators in the hall.

The makers of 22 of the 23 films were present. Thank you! The films were previously judged by Forum Nord in Hamburg. There were 5 Golds, 4 Silvers, 11 Bronzes, 3 honourable mentions. 18 films were passed on to the EUROFILMFESTIVAL in Ansbach.

Of particular note was the Audience Award. Roswitha Katharina and Klaus Kraft got it for their film.

The company, the program and the films shown were highly rated by the public and by the invited presenters from the regional radio station, the local TV station and the press. Reinhard Merke was able to give an informative interview about the EAK.

Roswitha Katharina filmed the event and the film can be seen on our website.

Dear Roswitha Katharina THANKS. It was a successful event. See you at EUROFILMFESTIVAL in Ansbach.
