The Grand Prix CIFFT was awarded – The world’s best tourism film is from Switzerland

Vienna, November 6th, 2015. This year’s world’s best tourism film was awarded with the Grand Prix CIFFT in the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber in Vienna. More than 300 guests travelled to Vienna to be part when the film „Time“ from Switzerland was honored with this high recognition.

Over 1.600 tourism films have been involved in the yearly competition for the world’s best tourism film which took place for the 27th time this year.

This year the agency stories AG directed by Michael Fueter could prevail itself with its film for the Switzerland Tourism. Further excellent films from Belgium, Finland, Faroe Islands, Poland, Bangladesh, Austria and Czech Republic have been awarded with a “Nominee for the Grand Prix CIFFT”.

The winning film plays with the Swiss image of punctuality and being the capital of watch making. While being on holiday in Switzerland one should just forget about time.

The multi-awarded tourism film “Time” is hence the latest addition to the range of successful winners of the past 26 years. The Grand Prix CIFFT as well as the nominees were presented at the awards ceremony. The audience, covering tourism directors, professionals from the tourism and film industry, ambassadors and students, was impressed by the high quality of the winning films.
