Munich International Festival of Film Schools

19. November - 26. November 2005

After the Awards Ceremony in the Gloria Palast theater, the festival's participants from around the world spent their last night in Munich partying and dancing at the BMW Pavillon on Lenbachplatz until after midnight.

We'd like to thank the participants of the 25th International Festival of Film Schools for presenting their films this past week and we would also like to thank the Munich public for attending in such large numbers to see the early films of tomorrow's top directors. Congratulations to this year's winners and good luck to all of the participants in their future professional endeavors.
