Dear film friends,
as President of Ansbach Film and Video Clubs e. V. I would like to welcome you very warmly to EURO FILM FESTIVAL 2015 in our beautiful Margrave town of Ansbach. I am particularly pleased to be able to do so in the year in which the Ansbach Film and Video Club celebrates its 50th anniversary and 10 years of membership in the European circle of Film & Video authors.
The medium of film is specially suited to "bridge-building" in Europe. A picture says more than a thousand words. Interesting stories and associated pictures go straight to people's hearts.
57 film or video entries from Europe have qualified in the regional forums, which took place in various parts of Europe, for the big festival in Ansbach. Therefore "the crème de la crème" of European amateur film will be shown. Although the films are the focus, this festival is also a meeting of "friends".
Filmmakers from all over Europe will have the opportunity to compare their filmmaking with films from other countries and the chance to exchange ideas, strengthen existing contacts and make new friendships beyond their own national borders.
I wish the film festival every success, the authors their hoped-for medals and all guests a pleasant stay here in beautiful Ansbach.
1. Chairman of the Ansbach Film and Video Club.
