The City of Linz honors Christine Dollhofer!

15.10.2021 // As a sign of recognition and appreciation, Mayor Klaus Luger honored six individuals who have made a particularly positive difference in public life on Monday, September 13, at the Old City Hall. Our outgoing festival director Christine Dollhofer was awarded the Great Golden Decoration of Honor of the City of Linz for services to culture.

In the laudation it says: "Christine Dollhofer directed the CROSSING EUROPE Film Festival for 18 years and made it a fixed point in the European festival calendar. She has been the heart and soul of the film festival from the very beginning, from 2003 in its conception, then as director. This year, at the beginning of June, the Linz Film Festival took place for the last time under her direction after a break last year due to corona. Christine Dollhofer, one of the most active protagonists of the Austrian film scene, is taking over the management of the Vienna Film Fund, one of the most highly endowed regional film funding bodies in Europe, starting in the fall."

The CROSSING EUROPE team is very happy, congratulates Christine Dollhofer and wishes all the best for her new mission in Vienna!
