JÜRGEN ECKEBERG
VIDEOGRAPH GMBH, GERMANY

Dear Cora Chinbuah and family,
I would like to thank you and your team - also on behalf of my colleague Frank Terpoorten - VERY MUCH for an interesting day and a splendid evening event. That was a successful mixture of the entertaining presentation of awards, a good meal and a splendid performance from the band with an excellent singer. In my opinion the mood of the participants was very good, relaxed and at the same time communicative. Such an evening deserves even more guests!

We "Videographs" regard our award as an encouragement to be there again next year and also to strive for something (even) higher. It's really worthwhile working creatively for that. I wish you a few days now to catch your breath and relax.
Kind regards, from The Videograph Team

PS
One suggestion that I would strongly urge you to consider: I would happily have spent a good half an hour after the last award was presented listening to the wonderful music and celebrating with the guests a little more.

Liebe Cora Chinbuah und Familie,
ich möchte mich bei Ihnen und Ihrem Team - auch im Namen von meinem Kollegen Frank Terpoorten - SEHR bedanken für eine interessanten Tag und für eine grandiose Abendveranstaltung. Das war eine sehr gelungene Mischung aus kurzweiliger Preisverleihung, einem guten Essen und einer grandiosen Performance durch die Band mit einer tollen Sängerin. Die Stimmung unter den Teilnehmer/innen war meines Erachtens sehr gut, entspannt und gleichzeitig kommunikativ. Dieser Abend verdient darüber hinaus noch mehr Gäste!

Wir "Videographen" bewerten unseren Preis als Ansporn, im kommenden Jahr wieder dabei zu sein und dann auch nach (noch) Höherem zu streben. Dafür lohnt es sich kreativ zu arbeiten. Ich wünsche Ihnen jetzt ein paar Tage des "Luft holens" und der Entspannung.
Herzliche Grüße sendet Ihnen das Videograph-Team

P.S.
Eine Anregung liegt mir noch am Herzen: ich hätte gerne noch eine gute halbe Stunde nach der letzten Preisverleihung der wunderbaren Musik "gelauscht" und somit noch ein wenig weiter mit den Gästen gefeiert.

 

Jörg Moll
Jörg Moll Filmproduktion, Germany

Dear Frau Chnbuah,
I still have very clear recollections of last year's Festival.It offered the opportunity for insights into the work of many people working in the same field. Insights, which normally just aren't possible, as the individual films and 3D animations from the individual organisations are generally only shown to a specific audience. During the Festival I was able - in a short space of time - to take a journey through the media landscape which would otherwise only have been possible with considerable research effort on my part, and even to some extent not possible at all.In addition, you immediately had contact with the programme makers - just great!
Many thanks and heartfelt greetings from Berlin.

Liebe Frau Chinbuah,
das Festival des letzten Jahres ist mir noch in sehr guter Erinnerung. Bot es doch die Möglichkeit Einblicke in die Arbeiten vieler Kollegen zu nehmen. Einblicke, die normalerweise so nicht möglich sind, da die einzelnen Filme und 3D-Animationen von den einzelnen Unternehmen in der Regel nur einem bestimmten Publikum präsentiert werden. Während des Festivals gelang mir in kurzer Zeit ein Streifzug durch die mediale Landschaft, der ansonsten nur mit erheblichem Rechercheaufwand und zum Teil sogar gar nicht möglich wäre. Darüber hinaus hat man sofort Kontakt zu den Machern - einfach Klasse.
Vielen Dank und herzliche Grüße aus Berlin.

 

EWA EWART

THOMAS WANNER
SCREENWERKS, GERMANY

A wonderful day, Frau Chinbuah.
I wanted to thank you once again very sincerely for a great event - including on behalf of our clients and of our team. We all enjoyed the evening very much - the friendly reception, the lively atmosphere, the delicious food, the whole supporting programme - and naturally also the awards. We had really given no thought at all to the Grand Prix - and our pleasure was thus all the greater. And above all for our clients it was a valuable confirmation of their choice of partner. MANY THANKS. The journey to Hamburg from the south of Germany was once again, as in the past two years, a real highlight.

Einen wunderschönen Tag, Frau Chinbuah.
Ich wollte mich nochmal ganz herzlich bei Ihnen für die tolle Veranstaltung bedaken. Auch im Namen unserer Kunden und meines Teams. Wir alle haben den Abend sehr genossen - der freundliche Empfang, die stimmungsvolle Atmosphäre, das leckere Essen, das gesamte Rahmenprogramm und - natürlich auch die Preise. Mit dem Grand Prix hatten wir ja nun überhaupt nicht gerechnet - die Freude darüber war umso grösser. Und vor allem auch für unseren Kunden eine wertvolle Bestätigung seiner Partnerwahl. VIELEN DANK. Die Reise nach Hamburg vom Süden der Republik aus war wie schon in den beiden Jahren zuvor ein echtes Highlight.

 

Georg Seidel

Dear Frau Chinbuah,
I was very pleased about the award of the intermedia-globe Gold for our youth programme "freiraum", which went out on Bavarian Broadcasting's educational channel BR-alpha. Thanks to this prize we also experienced a wonderful evening at the awards ceremony in Hamburg on 13 May. On behalf of my colleagues and the production company INTER/AKTION as well, I would also very much like to thank you personally for this high-level recognition. We would all be happy to travel to Hamburg again next year for the awards ceremony.

Sehr geehrte Frau Chinbuah,
über die Verleihung des intermedia-globes in Gold für unsere Jugendsendung "freiraum", die im Bildungskanal des Bayer. Rundfunks BR-alpha lief, habe ich mich sehr gefreut. Dank dieser Auszeichnung haben wir auch einen wunderbaren Abend bei der Preisverleihung am 13.5.09 in Hamburg erlebt. Auch im Namen meiner Kollegen und der Produktionsfirma "INTER/AKTION möchte ich mich gerade auch bei Ihnen persönlich für diese hohe Anerkennung recht herzlich bedanken. Gerne würden wir auch wieder im nächsten Jahr nach Hamburg zu einer Preisverleihung fahren.

Christoph Krachten
momento media GmbH, Germany

Dear Frau Chinbuah,
many thanks again, this time in writing, for the great evening in Hamburg. It's always terrific, the way you encounter colleagues there whom you know from other contexts entirely. So we had a very pleasant meeting up with the people from WDR. We regualrly work as a production company for the station. I would like to express my praise again for the outstandingly smooth running and the great atmosphere.

Sehr geehrte Frau Chinbuah,
auf schriftlichem Wege nochmal vielen Dank für den schönen Abend in Hamburg! Es ist auch immer wieder toll, auf welche Kollegen man dort stösst, mit denen man in ganz anderen Bereichen zu tun hat. So gab es bei uns ein sehr nettes Zusammentreffen mit den Gästen vom WDR. Wir arbeiten als Produktionsfirma ja auch immer wieder für den Sender. Ich möchte Ihnen aber nochmals ein Lob für den hervorragenden Ablauf und die schöne Atmosphüre aussprechen!

Herzlichen Gruß

 

ANNETT VÄTERLEIN
NIKLAS CINEMA PERFORMANCE FILMPRODUKTION, GERMANY

Dear Cora Chinbuah, dear intermedia-Team,
this is to say a big thank you for the wonderful days we spent at the WorldMediaFestival 2008. We took part for the first time this year and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was much more, much bigger, much grander that we expected. Perfect organisation meant that a very personal, relaxed atmosphere was able to develop. Interesting contributions, interesting international contacts and no trace of competitive thinking: it was like the gathering of one large family, and was enormous fun.
The icing on the cake was the Awards Gala. Quite genuinely, we don't believe even an Oscar winner could feel happier than intermedia-globe winners when they are honoured on stage. You kept your promise that "we celebrate the winners" in every sense. Once again a heartfelt thank you to the whole intermedia- team. We are already looking forward to seeing you in Hamburg again.

Liebe Cora Chinbuah, liebes intermedia-Team,
auf diesem Wege ein grosses Dankeschön für die wundervollen Tage beim WorldMediaFestival 2008. Wir hatten erstmals teilgenommen und waren begeistert. Es war viel mehr, viele größer, viel glanzvoller, als wir erwartet hatten. Die perfekte Organisation ließ eine sehr persönliche, ungezwungene Atmosphäre entstehen. Interessante Beiträge, interessante internationale Kontakte und keine Spur von Konkurrenzdenken; es war wie das Treffen einer großen Familie und hat uns riesig Spaß gemacht.
Das Sahnehäubchen war die Awards Gala. Ganz ehrlich, wir glauben nicht, dass sich ein "Oscar-Gewinner" glücklicher fühlen kann als ein "intermedia globe-Gewinner", wenn er auf der Bühne geehrt wird. Euer Versprechen "we celebrate the winners!" habt Ihr im wahrsten Sinne gehalten. Nochmals von ganzem Herzen Danke an das gesamte intermedia-Team! Wir freuen uns schon auf ein Wiedersehen in Hamburg.

OLAF WEHOWSKY
CINETEAM MEDIAWORKS GMBH, GERMANY

Dear World Media-Team.
first of all many thanks again for the delightful Festival. We were very taken by the festive surroundings and the international presence. It was very exciting to get to know not just the work that had come out of Sweden, Finland, England, Spain, etc, but also those responsible for it. A fantastic band was consolation for the perhaps too comprehensive ceremony.

Liebes WorldMedia-Team,
zunächst noch mal herzlichen Dank für das schöne Festival. Wir waren sehr angetan von dem festlichen Rahmen und dem internationalen Publikum. Es war sehr spannend nicht nur die Arbeiten aus Schweden, Finnland, England, Spanien, Japan etc. kennen zu lernen, sondern auch die Macher dahinter. Eine fantastische Band tröstete über die vielleicht etwas zu ausführliche Zeremonie hinweg.

 

MAIJA LEHTONEN
SUOMEN VISIOTALO OY, FINLAND

Dear Cora,

it is great summer here in Finland. I have a great pleasure to inform you that me and Emiko Okumura, we have decided to organize a co-exhibition here in Hämeenlinna 3.9.-9.9.2007, and all this because of You and WorldMediafestival. Thank You!

We met, Emiko and me, the first time in Hamburg, year 2002 ( ? ) at the WorldMediaFestival. So, I can say with my heart, that "at WorldMediaFestival you can win many kind of awards, like new friends..."

Now it is a good reason for you to come to Finland too !
Warmest regards from Hämeenlinna ( + 26 Celcius degree )

 

EMIKO OKUMURA
CREATIVE HOUSE OKUMURA, JAPAN

Dear Cora-san,

how have you been? In Japan, there was a massive earthquake yesterday.
As Osaka is far from the hypocenter, I am well.

By the way, I would like to say thank you very much.
Because we will be having a screening event in Finland in this September (3/9-9/9).
This event is a co-exhibition with Mrs Maija from Suomen Visiotalo Oy.
We will show our videos about Japanese housing architecture and landscape there.

I met Mrs. Maija at your festival in 2001 and we became the friends.
Without your festival, we wouldn't have been able to have this event.
We are interested what Finnish people think about Japanese housing culture, Japanese landscape and Japanese film.

Thank you very very much, Cora-san.
I appreciate your kindness and support.

Many thanks,
Emiko

Hi Cora,
First of all I want to congratulate you with the organisation of the World Media Festival. We, the Belgium delegation of VRT, had a fantastic evening and we're very glad by winning this award. Next week, we'll give it to our boss. We worked with 4 peoples on this documentary ... and it would be great if we had something to remember on this documentary and the price. Is it possible to have a replica of our price so we have each such a trophy? If not, no worries, we'll have good memories to your festival.

Greetings

HANS-JOACHIM HERBST
OTOM HDTV & FILMPRODUKTION, GERMANY

Dear Frau Chinbuah,
Unfortunately it has taken me until today to thank you personally for the very successful WorldMediaFestival 2006. The WorldMediaFestival 2006 was a gathering of creative people from the film and television industries of 25 countries. That resulted for me in interesting encounters, discussions and stimulus for my own work. The major closing event in the Delphi Show Palast, which you directed discreetly and competently in the background, united everyone in the pleasure of being there. I wish you every success for the WorldMediaFestival.

Sehr geehrte Frau Chinbuah,
ich komme leider erst heute dazu, mich bei Ihnen persönlich für das sehr gelungene WorldMediaFestival 2006 zu bedanken.
Das WorldMediaFestival 2006 war ein Treffen von Kreativen aus der Film- und Fernsehbranche aus 25 Nationen. Für mich gab es interessante Begegnungen, Gespräche und Anregungen für die eigene Arbeit. Die große Abschlussveranstaltung im Delphi-Showpalast, die Sie diskret und kompetent aus dem Hintergrund lenkten, vereinte alle in der Freude, dabei gewesen zu sein.

Viel Erfolg für das WorldMediaFestival 2007 wünscht Ihnen
Hans-Joachim Herbst

 

RACHEL TOWELL

Dear Cora and Sara,

I hope you are both keeping well! I'm sorry that I am just getting around to emailing you now - I can't believe the award ceremony was a week last Wednesday - how time flies!!
Many, many thanks for your warm hospitality and efficiency. It was a wonderful event and it was great to have the opportunity to participate in it. I met some really interesting people and even an Irish colleague who I didn't realise was attending!
We have our intermedia Award up on the shelf in the office and are very proud of it!
I hope you have time for a well deserved break before you begin preparing for the World Media Festival 2007 and have a wonderful summer.

Warmest regards from Dublin

Dear Cora,
A very Good Day to you in Hamburg, and hope that this e-mail finds all of you well.
Firstly, on behalf of Ms. Janetbon, our Executive Producer/Electronic Cinematographer, we would both like to say a BIG THANK YOU to you and the entire team at "intermedia," who so wonderfully organised an event that would be remembered for a long time to come.
For Jigsaw MCMXCV, it was a glorious moment; winning the Gold Award in the "Internal Communications" Category for "The Philosophy of Yehan Numata," BUT more so, for the warmth and friendliness that we received from your organisation. Who would have thought that it was our first attendance? Our THANKS further extend to, especially Sara, Amin, and Kojo whom we had the chance of getting acquainted with (smile). Let us also take this opportunity to wish "intermedia" all the very BEST and may the "WorldMediaFestival" continue to be THE EVENT to showcase the extensive productions in modern media across the globe ...It was a great pleasure meeting you . . . As you so rightfully put it, "after all : it's all about communications................" (all smiles).

Thank you.

Dear Cora,
Time flies. A month already since we met in Hamburg. I want to thank you again for the invitation - and the awards! The special UN - award really took me by surprise. The news was received with great joy back home. The people involved in the films story "A nose for danger" (Apopo Foundation trains rats to find land-mines) are confident that the prize will open doors internationally. As a matter of fact, the Belgian Minister For Foreign Affairs Karel de Gucht, mentioned the story while on a visit in Zagreb and the Croatian television asked for a copy of the film! Thanks again.

Cora,
my wife and I had a wonderful time in Hamburg and at the WorldMediaFestival!
We are so happy that we got a chance to tour the city for the brief time that we were in town.
We were told to go have dinner at the Yacht Club, but that will have to be next time...

The ceremony was a lot of fun and was run with great professionalism. I was honoured to be a part of it. We hope to return for many more years to come.

back home and at work again, but my heart is still in green and flowering Hamburg!
As we sang, "Vielen Danke schön ..." we will once more thank you, Cora, for your hospitality, for the chance to meet interesting people, for the excellent festival and of course for those Silver and Gold Awards, which we appreciate very, very much. They inspire us to create new films for the next year!

Cora-
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your festival is the best I have ever attended, including the ten N.Y. Film Festivals I have been to. Congratulations to you and all those involved in putting on a wonderful and memorable festival. As I said on stage when I accepted the gold award for "A Second Chance", I'm glad you were persistant in convincing me to attend. It was one of the highlights of my professional career. . . ..

Thanks again Cora, you are a delightful person and you did a marvellous job in putting together one of the world's premiere media festivals media festivals. Congratulations. If we are fortunate enough to earn another award next year I hope to see you then.

First of all heartiest congratulations on the extremely successful event based around acknowledging this year's WorldMediaFestival's prize winners. You succeeded in making what is essentially a tedious business - calling the prize winners, shaking hands, photos, thank you to the world - into a colourful and enjoyable party. Linked with these congratulations is naturally my thanks for the masterly organisation - managing to guide some 300 creative people down orderly paths and keep them there. My guests and I were really most impressed and are already looking forward to the next occasion.

Liebe Frau Chinbuah,
zunächst ganz herzlichen Glückwunsch für die äußerst gelungene Veranstaltung rund um die Siegerehrung der diesjährigen Preisträger des WorldMediaFestivals.
Es ist Ihnen gelungen aus einer per se eigentlich eher drögen Angelegenheit - Aufruf der Preisträger / Händeschütteln / Photo / Dank an den "Rest der Welt..." / Abgang - ein buntes vergnügliches Fest zu machen. Verbunden ist dieser Glückwunsch natürlich mit meinem herzlichen Dank für die organisatorische Meisterleistung, immerhin rund 300 Kreative über viele Stunden hinweg in geordnete Bahnen zu lenken und dort auch zu behalten. Meine Gäste und ich waren wirklich rundum sehr angetan und freuen uns schon auf das nächste Mal! Herzliche Grüße !

 

CHRISTINA KAHLERT
GESCHÄFTSFÜHRERIN
INDOC INDUSTRIE- UND FERNSEHFILM GMBH, GERMANY

We did not want to miss the opportunity to thank you again very sincerely on behalf of our client for a successful Festival. We would like to underline what the winner of the Grand Prix said at the awards ceremony. We, too, would like the WorldMediaFestival to become The international festival. There are many reasons for that. The internationalism achieved at the first attempt is impressive. Each entrant is measured against international competition - but likewise can draw international comparisons, and learn from them. The jury is international. Many productions are after all not conceived just for the German market and must work internationally - so they can be judged by international standards. The variety of categories makes it easy to enter a production where it really belongs - without having to make compromises. In that way, comparable media are only compared with each other. The promise to take considerable account in the judging of how well the target audience is addressed was kept. Thank you that it was not the case - as it is with other festivals - that only those who have poured money into a project get recognised. The awards ceremony was an experience - and I'm sure not just for those who won awards. The setting was original, and the presentation refreshingly relaxed. There are so many starchy awards ceremonies. A personal opinion to conclude with. There are so many hideous trophies. In that respect as well, your Festival distances itself considerably from its competitors. We look forward to the next WorldMediaFestival already.

Sehr geehrte, liebe Frau Chinbuah,
wir möchten es nicht versäumen, uns auch im Namen unsers Auftraggebers noch mal ganz herzlich für das gelungene Festival zu bedanken. Was der Gewinner des GrandPrix bei der Preisverleihung auf der Bühne sagte, möchten wir unterstreichen. Auch wir wünschen uns, daß das WorldMediaFestival zu dem internationalen Festival wird. Dafür gibt es eine Vielzahl von Gründen:
Die auf Anhieb erreichte Internationalität besticht. Der Einreicher muß sich einer internationalen Konkurrenz stellten, kann aber selbst auch internationale Vergleiche ziehen - und etwas daraus lernen. Die Jury ist international besetzt. Viele Produktionen sind schließlich nicht nur den deutschen Markt gedacht und müssen international funktionieren, also auch international beurteilt werden.
Die Vielfalt der Kategorien macht es einem leicht, seine Produktion auch wirklich da unterzubringen wo sie hinpasst - ohne Kompromisse machen zu müssen. Damit werden dankenswerter Weise auch nur vergleichbare Medien einander gegenübergestellt.
Das Versprechen, die zielgruppenadäquate Umsetzung bei der Beurteilung ganz wesentlich ins Kalkül zu ziehen, wurde eingelöst. Danke, daß nicht - wie bei vielen anderen Festivals- nur der zum Zug kommt, bei dem das Geld von der Leinwand tropft. . .
Die Preisverleihung war ein Erlebnis - sicher nicht nur für die Preisträger. Der Rahmen war sehr originell, die Moderation erfrischend locker. Es gibt ja so viele steife Preisverleihungen.
Eine ganz persönliche Meinung am Schluß: Es gibt ja soviel scheußliche Trophäen. Auch hier hebt sich Ihr Festival sehr positiv von vielen anderen Wettbewerben ab.
Wir freuen uns schon auf das nächste WorldMediaFestival.

 

RAINER ROHRBACH
ÖFFENTLICHKEITSARBEIT, ADAM OPEL AG, GERMANY

With the WorldMediaFestival still resonating, I would like to thank very sincerely for the excellent organisation of the competition - and also especially for the successful awards ceremony. As always, your work demonstrated great professionalism. Please pass on these thanks, which I am expressing on behalf of my colleagues, to your team. We are already looking forward to the next time around, and hope to be part of it again.

Sehr geehrte Frau Chinbuah,
im Nachklang zum WorldMediaFestival möchte ich mich bei Ihnen ganz herzlich für die ausgezeichnete Organisation des Wettbewerbes, auch ganz besonders für die gelungene Verleihungsveranstaltung bedanken. Ihre Arbeit zeugt wie immer von hoher Professionalität. Bitte leiten Sie diesen Dank, den ich auch im Namen meiner Kollegen aussprechen, an Ihr Team weiter.
Wir freuen uns schon auf die nächste Runde und hoffen, wieder dabei sein zu können!

Dear Cora,
Thank you for the honour and privilege of the invitation to come to Hamburg to receive the Silver on behalf of the Visitors' Bureau and Samoa.
My congratulations to you for such a realised vision! It was great to meet up again with you and your good husband and you have laid such a good foundation to build on for future Film Festivals. I thoroughly enjoyed the Award Ceremony from the Shuttle Boat Ride to the end of the Buddy Holly Show not to mention the actual awards. A great moment for Samoa.

What a beautiful experience your festival was!
I have been to a couple of festivals now and worldmediafestival was one of the best arranged and you certainly have the capacity to grow. Hamburg is a very nice town and the beer is good. And the Sekt. Thank you very, very, very much and also congratulations! I am already looking forward to the next WorldMediaFestival.

Dear Cora,
back home in Gothenburg I am delighted to take with me all the memories from the WorldMediaFestival in Hamburg! It was a professionally run event, and I am glad that our film and media production company Dockhouse participated. Not only because we won the Grand Prix but also because we thin Europe really needs a festival like this. It is important for the growth of our business and it is important for our clients. No other type f event can give us both the excitement of a competition, plus the chance to meet and exchange ideas with interesting people and - at the same time - create an interest big enough at the news desks of newspapers and magazines back home to write about you, your company, your production, your client and the festival. As we see it everyone is a winner at the WorldMediaFestival in Hamburg. We are very glad for the early success of your event, and we will back next year.

But yours paid loving care to all the details. Thank you for the opportunity of being there. Wishing you a pleasant Whitsun holiday.

Liebe Frau Chinbuah,
vielen Dank für den schönen Abend. . . . Ich muss Ihnen ein riesiges Lob aussprechen: Die Veranstaltung war so super organisiert und hat viel Spaß gemacht. Ich war schon bei vielen Preisverleihungen.

Dear Cora,
. . .Both my clients and I very much enjoyed attending the awards evening in Hamburg on the 15th May. We had a great time and may I congratulate you and the festival team on your hard efforts in putting together a wonderful show. I am sorry we did not get the opportunity to talk with you on the evening, but unfortunately we were unable to get much more time off to enjoy the screenings day and also to see more of Hamburg. . .
With very best regards . . .

Ute and I would again like to thank you very much indeed for the invitation to the screening and the successful gala evening. We enjoyed it very much and hope that it will be just as good next year even that means an enormous amount of work for you. With its excellent showing of prize winning films and the short presentations in the auditorium, as well as the awards ceremony at the Delphi, the worldmediafestival has certainly, in my view, placed itself at the head of German festivals and congresses. It was very interesting, informative, entertaining, international and well organised.
Once again thank you, thank you, thank you
.

Liebe Cora, lieber Kojo,
Ute und ich möchten Euch nochmals recht herzlich für die Einladung für das Screening und für den gelungenen Gala-Abend danken. Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen und wir hoffen dass es genauso schön im nächsten Jahr wird, auch wenn es für Euch viel, viel Arbeit ist. Durch die exzellente Vorführung der Preisträger-Filme mit den kurzen Vorträgen im Auditorium und die Preisverleihung im Delphi hat das wwworldmediafestival sich sicherlich, so wie ich es sehe, an die Spitze unserer deutschen Festivals oder Kongresse gesetzt. Es war sehr interessant, informativ, kurzweilig, international und gut organisiert.
Nochmals Danke,Danke,Danke. Liebe Grüße. . .

Dear Cora,
Still filled with emotions of winning the BIG price of the Worldmediafestival, I think every day of that wonderful experience. Every minute of the day I am still thinking about it, as if it were a dream. Is this real? Did I really win this prize on a very challenging festival with lots and lots of quality programs ? It was such a good feeling to know that the jury understands what I did. . . . I also find that the low profile presence of jury members was perfect. In Belgium I have never been nominated for a price on local festivals. On some occasions some members of the jury criticised my film: I have a bad influence on youth, too much sex, too much violence. In Germany though, you understood I use the language of the young one to teach them about something else: the danger of the HIV-virus.
THANKS, THANKS, THANKS.

GESCHÄFTSFÜHRER visavis FILMPRODUKTION, GERMANY

In our hectic daily lives we tend to dedicate ourselves much too quickly to our ,normal' work after a few moments of celebration. Nevertheless I would to like to express my recogntion of this year's worldmediafestival. The film we entered faced extraordinarily strong competition as well as a high-quality international jury. Seen in that light, the two prizes our entry won take on a particular gleam. The awards will certainly make an effective contribution to our PR work. The granting of special awards from organisations such as the German PR Society and the UN Department of Public Information brings the Festival additional renown. My overall impression at the end of the day was of professional preparation and event organisation.
Frau Chinbuah, I congratulate you once again on the worldmediafestival - a highly successful initiative.

Best wishes from Berlin!

Sehr geehrte Frau Chinbuah,
in unserem hektischen Geschäftsalltag neigen wir allzu oft dazu, nach kurzen Momenten der Festlichkeit uns viel zu schnell wieder der "normalen" Tagesordnung zu widmen. Ich möchte dennoch an dieser Stelle meine Anerkennung im Zusammenhang mit dem diesjährigen worldmediafestival zum Ausdruck bringen.

Der von uns für den Wettbewerb eingereichte Film traf auf eine außerordentlich starke Konkurrenz sowie auf eine hochkarätige internationale Jury. Vor diesem Hintergrund erhalten die zwei Auszeichnungen unseres Wettbewerbs-Beitrags einen besonderen Glanz. Die gewonnenen Preise werden mit Sicherheit effektvoll zu unserer PR-Arbeit beitragen. Die Verleihung von Special Awards durch Organisationen wie die Deutsche Public Relations Gesellschaft oder die Department of Public Information der Vereinten Nationen schenkt dem Festival zusätzliches Renommée. Meinen Gesamteindruck rundet zu guter letzt die professionelle Vorbereitung und Veranstaltungsorganisation ab. Frau Chinbuah, ich gratuliere Ihnen noch einmal zum worldmediafestival, eine gelungene Initiative! Beste Grüße aus Berlin!

The worldmediafestival has given me the possibility of getting an overview of the industrial film sector in the shortest possible time. After one day I know what "state of the art" is. In the evening I then have the chance to meet sponsors, directors and producers in a pleasant atmosphere.
How could I invest my money better?

Das Worldmediafestival gibt mir die Möglichkeit, in kürzester Zeit einen überblick im Industriefilmsektor zu bekommen. Nach einemTag weiß ich, was zur Zeit "State of the Art" ist. Am Abend habe ich die Möglichkeit bei angenehmer Atmosphäre Auftraggeber, Regisseure und Produzenten persönlich kennen zu lernen. Wie kann ich meine Geld besser investieren ?
Herzliche Grüße und nur das Beste für den Tag . . .

Dear Mrs. Chinbuah,
On behalf of all my colleagues in LACON Design we would like to thank you very much for the intermedia-Globe GRAND AWARD and the wonderful event! Both the perfectly-organised screening and the successful presentation of the awards exceeded our wildest expectations! We were particularly pleased by the international nature of the others sitting at our table at the gala dinner. As a result, we have been able to return to Lake Constance with not only many unforgettable impressions and the award, but also new friends in Japan, Italy and the United States. We enjoyed the WorldMediaFestival very much and already look forward to being there again next year.

Liebe Frau Chinbuah,
auch im Namen aller Mitarbeiter von LACON design möchten wir uns für den intermedia-Globe GRAND AWARD und die wunderbare Veranstaltung herzlich bedanken! Sowohl das perfekt organisierte Screening als auch die gelungene Award-Verleihung haben unsere kühnsten Vorstellungen übertroffen! Besonders gefreut hat uns die internationale Zusammenstellung unserer Tischnachbarn beim Gala-Dinner. Somit konnten wir nicht nur mit den vielen unvergesslichen Eindrücken und dem Award, sondern auch mit neuen Freunden aus Japan, Italien und den USA an den Bodensee zurückkehren. Wir haben das WorldMediaFestival sehr genossen und freuen uns schon jetzt darauf, im nächsten Jahr wieder mit dabei zu sein!

Dear Cora,
I apologize for the delay in my response. I have only just returned to New York since I saw you last in Hamburg - I was on a whirlwind trip to London and Bangladesh. First, I wanted to thank you for everything. The event was a real success and my co-producers and I were thrilled! . . .

Dear Ms. Cora Chinbuah-san,
How are you? It was a very wonderful Festival. They were days like a dream for me. Thank you very very very much really. I appreciate your endeavor. It was good to see the image of the world of us. You were allowed to be able to become the person of the world and an acquaintance. I who says again am really grateful. I appreciate your attention to the matter. A new work is made toward the next year.

 

HAGEN GOTTSCHALCK

Still completely bewitched by the wonderful evening yesterday at the WorldMediaFestival awards ceremony, I wanted once again to thank you and your team very sincerely for a magnificent Festival. It really is something special to receive an award at such an outstanding Festival, and to win the Grand Prix is as if one had won an Oscar. We are all pretty proud of the honours which we received yesterday. For us, as a relatively new film production company, this recognition is fantastic confirmation of the quality of our work and also motivates us for our next projects (with which we hope to attending again over the next few years). Many thanks and have a great day.

Liebe Cora Chinbuah,
noch immer ganz verzaubert von dem wunderbaren Abend gestern bei der Preisverleihung des WorldMediaFestival, wollte ich mich noch mal ganz herzlich bei Dir und Deinem Team für dieses grossartige Festival bedanken! Auf einem so hervorragenden Festival ausgezeichnet zu werden ist wirklich etwas besonderes und den Grand Prix zu gewinnen, ist als ob man den Oscar bekommen hätte. Wir sind alle ziemlich stolz auf die Auszeichnungen, die wir gestern erhalten haben. Für uns, als noch relativ junge Filmproduktion, ist diese Anerkennung eine phantastische Bestätigung unserer Arbeit und auch eine Motivation für die nächsten Projekte (mit denen wir hoffentlich in den nächsten Jahren wieder dabei sein werden). Vielen Dank und einen wunderschönen Tag noch!

Dear Cora,
back in Helsinki, full of energy and excitement. Thank you so much for a wonderful event. At least for me it was a well deserved break to charge batteries. Please, make it two days session next year. We could see more films screened (not just in the video library). My opinion has always been that when I leave Finland for an international festival, I want to be abroad at least three or four days. So, I spend time in Hamburg anyway. Think about it. And thank you for the Grand Award. Hemmo and Tauno were totally shook up and even I (normally prepared for anything) was surprised and happy.

Dear Cora Chinbuah,

I came back to Japan in safety. Thank you very very much for the wonderful awards night. And thank you for your kind help for my guest. It was a great honor for me to get the intermedia globe-Silver and to be charged with the important duty as a presenter on stage. Your festival is just worldwide. Whenever I attend your festival, I can communicate with many people of many countries. The experiences are very exciting. Thank you again for everything you did. I would like to come again next year to make a excellent film.
Many many thanks from Emiko

MARKETING & SALES, MEMBER OF THE CORE TEAM

Good evening Mrs. Chinbuah,
now back in Weinfelden, I would like to thank you very much - on behalf of all of us as Model - for the Intermedia Globe Gold Award " Intelligent Packaging " and the event yesterday in Hamburg. It was personally my first time at the Festival and a special experience. I was very impressed by both the screening and the original presentation of awards. Our producer , MUVI Films of Flurlingen, did not exaggerate when they spoke last year about intermedia's World Media Festival.

We came home with many impressions as well as 'our' Gold Award. If in the future there is a possibility of a new production, we shall certainly try to be among the 'chosen few' again.Greeting from Weinfelden

Guten Abend Frau Chinbuah,
zurück in Weinfelden möchte ich mich auch im Namen aller Model-Mitarbeiter für den Intermedia-Globe GOLD AWARD "Intelligent Packaging" und die gestrige Veranstaltung in Hamburg herzlich bedanken! Für mich persönlich war es die erste Teilnahme und ein besonderes Erlebnis. Sowohl das Screening als auch die originelle Award-Verleihung haben mich sehr beeindruckt. Unser Produzent, MUVI FILMS, Flurlingen/Schweiz hatte nicht "übertrieben" als er mir letztes Jahr vom + intermedia-WorldMediaFestival gesprochen hat. Wir sind nebst "unserem" GOLD AWARD auch mit vielen Eindrücken nach Weinfelden zurückgekehrt. Falls sich in Zukunft die Möglichkeit nach einer neuen Produktion bietet, werden wir versuchen, wieder in die "engere Wahl" zu kommen.
Gruss aus Weinfelden.

THOMAS OTTENSMANN
DIRECTOR NEW MEDIA, BERTELSMANN STIFTUNG, GERMANY

I think the concept of the WorldMediaFestivals is first class, because it rewards work with 'new media' that is unconventional and innovative, but at the same time highly professional.

Hallo Frau Chinbuah,
ich finde das Konzept des worldmediafestivals klasse, weil hier der unkonventionelle (vergl. Web-Design) und innovative aber zugleich höchst professionelle Umgang mit "neuen Medien" prämiert wird.

Two weeks ago the ITVA awards took place in Cologne...when I compare that to your upbeat party in Hamburg, I can only say I take my hat off to you. You were wonderful, the rooms perfect, the atmosphere great and the band a hit. So once again many congratulations. And I beseech you to make the WorldMediaFestival to Germany;s No 1 - then in future we won't have to worry about all the other rubbish.

Liebe Cora,
vor 2 Wochen fand in Köln die ITVA-Verleihung statt......Wenn ich das mit Deiner rauschenden Party in Hamburg vergleiche, kann ich nur sagen: Hut ab. Du warst wunderbar, die Räume perfekt, die Stimmung Spitze und die Band ein Treffer. Als nochmals: herzlichen Glückwunsch! Und streng Dich bitte an, das Worldmediafestival zur Nr. 1 in Deutschland zu machen, dann können wir uns nämlich den ganzen anderen Quatsch künftig sparen.

I would like to thank you again very sincerely for the success of yesterday evening. It was a terrific awards event (special compliments to the outstanding presenters) and a really magical evening in Hamburg.

Sehr geehrte Frau Chinbuah,
ich möchte mich auf diesem Wege für den gestrigen gelungenen Abend ganz herzlich bedanken! Es war eine tolle Preisverleihung ( ein dickes Kompliment an die herausragende Moderation) und ein wirklich traumhafter Abend in Hamburg.
