The 50th anniversary of the Ansbach Film and Video Club is the perfect occasion to bring the EURO FILM FESTIVAL to Ansbach once again! I warmly welcome all foreign guests of the festival to our city and congratulate members of the FVC on their "milestone birthday".
When the Film & Video Club was founded in 1965, hardly anyone would have dreamed how rapidly development in the film and video sector would take place. A short clip, shot in seconds with a smartphone and with a click sent to YouTube or Vimeo?! Back then that was scarcely conceivable, today it is established reality. That is a total contrast to your works of art, which will be exhibited in Ansbach at the EURO FILM FESTIVAL from 8 to 10th October: yours are certainly not created in seconds, but thoughtfully planned, shot, edited and given soundtracks.
I wish you an exciting competition with many interesting movies, a lot of success for your own movies, a lively exchange of views and of course a nice stay in our city!
Carda Seidel, Lady Mayor
