A Lively forum in "Pferdestall"

Although in Hamburg the main event was the annual celebration of the harbour’s birthday, our even organisers could not complain about a shortage of visitors. 60 film makers and film enthusiasts mingled, watched and listened more or less amazed by the film entries in this year’s competition seen on the huge screen. During most presentations you could have heard the legendary pin drop.

The main role in the programme was not taken by travel films, it was a well-balanced mix of documentaries, fiction films and reportage. The longer films were impressive: 8 out of 14 films had a minimum running time of 15 minutes. Only 5 films had a running time of less than 10 minutes and 5 films took advantage of the maximum running time of 20 minutes.

We certainly had not expected 3 fiction films from the north, though the three contributions from Norway helped. The audience agreed with the choices of the jury, which had met in Georg Brand's home cinema 14 days before the event:
The two first places went to Dieter Prill (Where I live) and Max Conradt (Do you know Brahms?) These were reaffirmed by the spectators who gave them the public choice prizes.

The third gold medal went to Norway:
Hilde Falkanger from the Bergen Frititsfilmere club, who can be proud of their film "Amor Librorum".

At the Euro-Filmfestival from 5 to 7 October in Harsefeld, we will have 9 films from Forum Nord.

We are grateful to all the film makers whose entries first made the event possible, so that film enthusiasts can meet at the forums and finally at the Euro-Filmfestival, and we look forward to success in friendly competition  with other European film makers.

Meeting of Film Makers in Hamburg

on June 26, 2015 at 3pm
in the  „GeBra“ Kino, by Georg Brand, Rönkkoppel 32, 22159 Hamburg

All amateur film makers who want to show their work to film colleagues are invited. We want films which have not yet had a competition screening, or which could not be shown because, for example, the film maker did not want to show it to a jury or because his film is too long for a competition. The film maker will have enough time to talk about the style and the circumstances in which his production was made. He alone decides whether he will get a critique or just wants to feel the reaction of the audience.

Discussion and the exchange of views of film makers is at the heart of the event.
Registration with the area representative is required because of the limited number of seats:
Wolfgang Thomas, Mühlenbrook 29, 22397 Hamburg, Tel: 040/605 615 90, Mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Short Film Matinee in Moorkino "Cultimo"

The Eurofilmers will be guests at Kuhstedtermoor.

For the third time Europe’s Short Film Specialists will screen films in the "Cultimo", the cultural institution in Kuhstedtermoor. We expect that once again the award-winning films from all categories will be shown before a packed house. Wolfgang Thomas, the area representative of Eurofilmers, will present and moderate the matinee.

Breathtaking scenery, adventurous experiences in Russia, mysterious events in Switzerland and fascinating wildlife viewing await our visitors to the Cultimo matinee. And finally, as a treat, an astounding dumb donkey with an amazingly intelligent idea in the fight against flies.
The short films cover a cross-section of the full range of issues from our film makers. These are movies, as we used to see them in the past showing as cultural films before the main films in the cinema.

We start at 4pm on May 31 at 16:00 clock with an entrance charge of 7.50 euros. Insiders naturally realise that an hour before that, coffee and cake are offered during stimulating discussions between guests and organizers already there.

Since for each guest a place will be reserved by name, registration is essential!
Please call: 04761/921418 or reserve your place through the Internet on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
„Cultimo“  Kuhstedtermoor 24 in 27442 Kuhstedtermoor

Jurors Course

Jurors course on March 27, 2015
at the home of our film friends Ilka and Horst Burmeister, Steineck 16 in 21218 Seevetal
Starts at 10:00 clock and runs until 17:00 clock

Anyone who thinks a jury seminar is only of interest to future judges, is much mistaken. Using film examples, Peter Klüver points out to participating film makers, which criteria are lacking in the movies, or where something is particularly well done. All feedback scores from our jury sheets are discussed with examples and practiced.

Knowing how to please the audience in a film is equally important for jurors and film makers.
Lunch and drinks are prepared in advance in return for a donation.
