Anniversary Edition With Nearly 23,000 Visitors
Yesterday the anniversary edition (15 Years!) of the CROSSING EUROPE Film Festival Linz came to a successful conclusion. Nearly 23,000 festivalvisitors were counted over the past six days at 182 screenings and 21 supporting programs. This means that the number of visitors remained almost the same as last year (23.000).
Festival Director Christine Dollhofer and her team are especially happy that so many film-, art-, and music-loving festival guests chose to visit CROSSING EUROPE 2018. In the cinemas as well as at the numerous events of the supporting program and at the Nightline every evening, the enthusiasm of the audience was evident. In comparison with last year, nearly the same number of visitors was counted, which can be taken as affirmation of the work of the CROSSING EUROPE team in the past 15 years.
Over the past 15 years CROSSING EUROPE has matured into a cinephile festival, which unites filmmakers with a stance, who use diverse artistic means to bring European life worlds to the screen. CROSSING EUROPE stands for a film culture that is vibrant, open-minded, critical and diverse. And with CROSSING EUROPE 2018 another chapter in the success story of the festival has been written.
CROSSING EUROPE thanks the enthusiastic cinema audience, the filmmakers, press & industry guests, our event, cooperation & media partners, and our funders and sponsors.
See you next year! 25. - 30. April 2019
