Dear Filmfriends,

with being 70 years and having centuries with activities in the non-professional film I decided to make a final cut with my participation at the international filmfestivals. I want to abandon my membership at the film organizations in the USA.

I thank you all so much, every filmfriend and every juror and every organizer for the great and unforgetable time. Please note that our homepage will not be actualised anymore.

Thank you for everything!
With all best wishes
