Uvod / Intro

Spoštovani ljubitelji filma,

Piran, arhitekturni in kulturni dragulj Sredozemlja, je že v srednjem veku privabljal izjemne ljudi in pomembne goste. Številni ga nikoli ne pozabijo, veliko pa je takšnih, ki se vanj vračajo večkrat. Zaradi izjemne kulturne dediščine ali pa zgolj zato, da v tem čudovitem kraju preživimo svoj prosti čas, se v Piran vračamo vsi. Tokrat v svoji sredini ponovno gostimo ljubitelje kulture, umetnosti in filma iz Sredozemlja in širše Evrope. Občina Piran tako s ponosom gosti deseti Festival evropskega in mediteranskega filma, ki je odraz naraščajoče evropske filmske ustvarjalnosti. Tudi slovenska filmska produkcija je bogata in povezovalna, kljub zahtevnim finančnim izzivom, ki so vselej prisotni. Z medsebojnim sodelovanjem in z vizijo za prihodnost bomo ovire še naprej premagovali skupaj.

Đenio Zadković, župan Občine Piran


Since its establishment as a medieval town, this architectural and cultural gem of the Mediterranean has hosted an endless number of prominent guests and attracted many remarkable individuals to revisit it many times after seeing it for the first time. Everyone wants to return either for cultural purposes or just for leisure. This time we are attracting culture and film lovers from across the Mediterranean. The Municipality of Piran proudly hosts the Festival of European and Mediterranean Film for the tenth consecutive year. Slovenian filmmakers are extensively creative and their production is very rich. However, the financial challenges are still immense. Overcoming the difficulties is possible with mutual collaboration and vision for the future.
