Greetings from the Lady Mayor

Dear Eurofilmers,

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!

Best regards


Carda Seidel, Lady Mayor
