Dear colleagues,

With just a few weeks to go to the 61st FIAF Congress in Ljubljana, we would like to express our gratitude for your interest and cooperation. Up until today 145 members and guests of the Federation have registered, ensuring that this year's Congress will be – once again – a fruitful ground for meeting your colleagues and making new contacts.

With this third – and final – Newsletter we send you the last practical information. We have also enclosed a Congress timetable as well as a schedule of the accompanying events.

Upon your arrival in Ljubljana and your check-in at the hotel you've chosen, we invite you to come to our reception desk to pick up your registration and congress documents. The reception desk will be located in the Cankarjev dom Congress Centre, and will be open on June 5th from 10 am until 7 pm.

As some of you may already know, Silvan Furlan – the founder and director of the Slovenian Cinematheque – passed away on Friday, April 22nd. He was 51.Silvan was very enthusiastic about receiving the FIAF community in Ljubljana. In the past years he invested a vast amount of time, effort and dedication to make sure that the 61st Congress would become a memorable event. Although it is practically an impossible task to do everything he would have done to ensure that, we consider it our moral obligation to make every effort to offer you a Congress to remember.

We know that Silvan will be with us in spirit at the event.
