ADVISORY BOARD 2022
Advisory Board members are professionals who are exclusively invited to closely monitor as well as provide information and advice during the festival’s preparations.
Advice is offered to the Board of Directors and festival managers on almost all matters regarding the festival’s management. Although Minikino highly respects the board’s opinions, it does not hold the authority to decide on festival matters and thus cannot be held responsible for any decision made by the festival committee.
