best edition Film by the Sea ever

It was once again a tremendous joy to be able to work for Film by the Sea this year. Festival director Leo Hannewijk was clear in his praise: “The best edition ever”. And I wholeheardly agree with that. ‘My department’ can look back on a successful festival as well. The website statistics soared, we sold many tickets and there was ample coverage by national media, amongs which several TV and radio  programmes. An edition to cherish and look back on with a great deal of satisfaction.

The next edition of Film by the Sea will be held from 13 to 22 September 2013 and I am already looking forward to it.
