Anni Bergauer

I was born under the zodiac sign of Libra in 1950, married for 45 years and have two adult daughters Jenny and Carolin, two siblings Steffen and Heiko and 4 grandchildren Sophia and Hannes and Sebastian and Julia. We live in Ansbach, the administrative capital of Middle Franconia, about 40 km west of Nuremberg.

Until my retirement from the working life I was first employed by the government of Middle Franconia in the benefits office and later as an employee of the district staff council.

Since 1995 I have been a member of the Ansbach Film and Videoclub. As the only woman (with her own camera) among about 35 videofilmers, I was elected as a (token) woman to the executive committee of the board. Later Vice Presidency followed and since 2000 I have been the chairman of the FVC Ansbach, an association with at present 28 videofilms, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015. On this occasion, we organised for the second time - after 2007 - the Eurofilm Festival in 2015 in Ansbach.

Our association is a member of BDFA and has been a member of Eurofilm for about 12 years. Since 2007, I have been a member of the Executive Board at Eurofilm.

I like working with my filmmakers in the team. Our community films have been very often awarded with gold and silver medals and other awards. I have already attended a number of juror seminars at the BDFA and the Eurofilm and was also often employed as a juror and jury leader. Unfortunately, thanks to all the “desk work” I do not come to films so often as I would like.
