Children are often considered to be the best audience. The reception of these films in the movie theatres served as clear testimony to this. Altogether, at the two sites (Asmara and Mendefera) more than 7.000 thousands children from local schools attended the screenings during the 10 days, which, in many ways a measure of success and outreach.
This year's festival was organised in cooperation with the Eritrean Ministry of Education and Commission of Culture and Sports and benefitted from the valuable support of the Italian Embassy in Asmara and, of course, the contributions made by Member States.
The "European Film Week" has become one of the biggest European cultural events in the country. It is a concrete contribution to efforts aimed at celebrating European Cultural Heritage.
Our gratitude is extended to everyone who has contributed to the organisation of this festival.
