ZLÍN FILM FESTIVAL 2013 The 53 rd International Film Festival for Children and Youth in Zlín PRESS RELEASE May 31, 2013 Dear guests and visitors to all of the ZFF events and respected journalists! I can honestly state with joy that the 53 rd annual festival went well. The unstable weather had no effect on the running of the competition screenings nor on the vast majority of the film program. Your favorable reaction to what our program had to offer has given us reason to believe that the ZFF's program was a success. I'd like to congratulate not only the victors of the international competitions, but all the filmmakers all of whom found success with the festival's audiences here in Zlín. We are only sorry that the cold rainy weather did not enable all of the events of the supporting program to take place according to plan in their full glory. Surely we'll be able to influence this factor as well in the future. I'd like to thank the judges for accepting the task and for acquitting themselves responsibly and honorably here in Zlín. Also, let me express my gratitude to our co-organizers, partners and supporters of the ZFF! It is only thanks to their assistance that our festival is of world significance. In addition, we highly value the work of journalists and the media. The success of such an enormous event as the ZFF is significantly dependent on the media's helpfulness and generosity. The good news is that concepts like culture and children are welcomed with open arms by the Czech media. Kudos are also due to the ZFF's organizational team. The team spirit that has been present is evidence of the fact that good will and diligence are preconditions for success. Thank you, everybody! Markéta Pášmová, festival program director On behalf of ENAPO, I'd like to use this opportunity to thank not only all of the film enthusiasts, but also the organizing team for their co-operation and empathetic approach. The smiles on children's faces, the satisfaction of film-lovers and the varied selection of films compensated all of the festival's participants for this year's bad weather. Along with film audiences, we all enjoyed an unforgettable atmosphere at many unique events, be they film, social or supporting events. We are extremely pleased that we could be part of this prestigious festival and we are looking forward to next year's 54 th anniversary.
