The acquisition and survival of the long-established “galeriehaus” has been secured. And the Cine Center Hof e.V., as the organizer of the Hof International Film Festival, would like to express its sincere thanks to all the supporters of the crowdfunding campaign by the VR Bank Bayreuth-Hof eG. Within three months’ time, 227 supporters donated 54,690 euros under the motto “together we can do more”.
„Thank you to all donors! It is of utmost importance for us to maintain the galeriehaus as a cultural and spiritual entity of the Hof International Film Festival. For this reason, we would like to acquire and renovate this reasonably priced building.“ Andreas Walter, Deputy Chair of the Cine Center Hof e.V.
For the last almost 50 years, the galeriehaus in the heart of Hof has existed in its current form. Since its opening, it has established itself as a location where the arts and enthusiasm meet. Heinz Badewitz was also a regular guest at the galeriehaus and a close friend of the in 2017 deceased proprietor Werner Weinelt. The Cine Center Hof e.V. would like to support this nucleus of the Hof International Film Festival in the tradition of Werner Weinelt.
