"TOUR FILM FEST “At the East Coast of Europe” has been out there for 10 years already, establishing itself as a world class tourism film festival. And I love it! Dalai Lama says: “As often as possible, go someplace you’ve never been before.” Tour films are truly informative; as soon as the festival is over, I pack my luggage and try to visit as many of the locations shown, as I can. It’s my philosophy: “What I experienced and what I saw –no one can take away from me”. I need those trips, the new places and the new people. My travels charge me with a powerful emotion, which I utilize in my work. And when I don’t have the time, I “travel” across the globe through the films of TOUR FILM FEST. Blow the candles, TOUR FILM FEST, and cheers!"
