With the publications of today's stories, Film New Europe closes out its first seven months of highly successful operations. We have published more than 350 reports about the film and TV industries of the 12 new EU member states. Feedback has been highly positive and our subscription list is constantly growing. We have become information sponsors for several major festivals in the region. And next year we plan even more in pursuit of our goal: providing a much-needed interactive forum for the exchange of information among the audiovisual professionals in the region, and beyond. FNE will resume publication on Jan. 21. Until then, the FNE staff and its correspondents offer best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
