The staff and current board of Filming Europe-EUFCN are happy to welcome new board members and look forward to starting working with them for the growth of the Association.
“I would like to take this opportunity to once again say thank you to the former President Mr Arie Bohrer, for all the efforts and work he and his board have done from the founding of the network and up to today. - Commented Truls Kontny, new President of the Association - We will continue the work with rising the awareness of our organization and what we can offer.
We want to collaborate with the other European film organizations for the best of the audiovisual industry in Europe.”
"When we founded the EUFCN eight years ago, we did not even know how many Film Commissions exist in Europe. - Commented Arie Bohrer, acting as President of the Association from 2007 to 2014 - In most cases the film industry was not aware, how important and necessary the function of a film commissioner is.
Today we are a well-respected organization, and our job is recognized by the industry and governments.
In the future I for myself will support the EUFCN as much as I can.
I wish the new elected president Truls and the board good luck and success for their upcoming activities."
