The VideoMath festival
receives broad support by many people
and organisations which is greatly acknowledged. More
than 100 entries were submitted for the VideoMath Festival. Many groups
worked day and night to meet the deadline. Many of them produced their
first video. We thank all contributors!
Although it was difficult for the entrepeneurs
to compete with the more experienced research groups, we encourage all
submitters to continue this work. The genre of mathematical films is still
at its beginnings!
