“I’m excited about and looking forward to this 23rd Golden Drum. I’m expecting to see some great content from a region that is becoming stronger and stronger and a well-recognized worldwide creative benchmark. Where impossible things are possible. There’s a lot of energy and drive in New Europe and I’m thrilled to be part of it. And the appointment to GD juror, in such context, is flattering.”
