Having expressed gratitude for the support of the City of Vršac, sponsors, the media accompanying the festival all these years and the volunteers being an integral part of this great event organization (this year in cooperation with the Youth Office), the director of the Festival, Olga Petrov, spoke about the significance of the Festival's membership in CIOFF, the international organization of the festival at UNESCO, and cooperation with other festivals in the surrounding area.

Speaking of the twentieth festival, I would say that, nowadays it is much easier to reach the ensembles, especially since we have been a member of CIOFF, and we have a special convenience in being in the vicinity of Romania and have an excellent cooperation, so we take over the individual ensembles from them for a couple of days, then they go on to further festivals in the region. In addition, we strive to maintain the attractiveness of our festival by certain independent contacts, so this year we will host a very nice ensemble from China, from the area of Shanghai. This is the first time that such an ensemble is hosted in Serbia, and to us, as organizers, it is a great pleasure to meet the new cultures. They will be a real refreshment for the Festival, said Petrov.

During the festival, Vršac will accommodate around 500 participants from eight countries of the world, from three continents, and as in previous years, an extensive programme has

been organized for them. Through participation in the Workshop of Serbian dance learning, they will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the Serbian folklore tradition. Sightseeing tours, organized in cooperation with TO Vršac, will enable them to become familiar with the rich culture and tradition of Vrsac, the host city.
