06.10.2008 - 12.10.2008   (Mo-Su)

Dear friends, fans of fi lm production and viewers in all generational categories, in the first year ending with the number eight after the turn of the millennium I would
like to welcome you at the opening of the 34th International Film Festival on the Environment and Natural and Cultural Heritage EKOFILM 2008. It will take place between 6th and 12th October 2008.

The fact that our festival has become distinctly international is testifi ed to not only by its membership in ECOmove International or by the two awards it has received from this festival of world ecological festivals, but mainly by practical things – in the correspondence
to the organising team there are salutations from various distant parts of the world. Some
correspondents are already interested in participating in the competition section, there are many questions regarding this and that, we receive complimentary or thought-provoking messages regarding the previous years.

Our goal is to find the most responsible and most operational way to present the best films inspired by the festival themes to the widest possible audience. So if you send your film to this year’s Ekofilm and participate on the festival’s programme in person all members of the authors-organisers-spectators triangle will be satisfied.
As an accompaniment to the competition screenings we are organising special seminars
and discussion forums inspired by exciting issues of our times. Film screenings, screenings for schools and evenings with fi lmmakers will make for interesting events in the individual locations of the festival parts.

Let me then cordially invite you, both in my name and in the name of the organisers of the festival, to come to the EKOFILM 2008 festival.

Whether you are filmmakers or potential audience, I’m looking forward to seeing you in Český Krumlov and České Budějovice.

Yours truly,
Prof. Pavel Kovář
President of the Festival
