Greeting remark by the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports, ARTA DADE

First of all, I would like to tell you that I feel very good at ease while addressing cinematographers, actors and film producers, and at the same time dubbing this event, which is very important for all of us: “Tirana Film Festival”, a festival which is being organized for the first time in Albania, an international festival, in which al authors feel that they are equal in the competition of film production. 

Our cinematographers – despite the numerous obstacles they have to face – have often tried to make Albanian movies and take them to various festivals in Europe and beyond, but with the first step of this Festival, they are provided with the opportunity of presenting their films at home. 

The Albanian Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports is glad to give its initial support to such event – with the hope that this will only be the beginning of a success story – because it sees in it creative and intellectual values of a great potential, which need support from state institutions, and which need to establish a tradition of their own. 

I take this occasion to greet the originators of this event, Mr. Domi and Mr. Butka, who, with much strong will and commitment, are realizing their dream and goal of transforming Tirana into a center where film is going to speak in various languages, of contemporary schools and experiments.  

I extend my best wishes to its first edition.
