The 21. MEDIAWAVE Festival is over – the Awards for ’Parallel Culture’ and the Film awards of the Jury have been handed out. See the details.
The institution of Awards for ’Parallel Culture’ was initiated by the Mediawave Foundation in 2001 with the intention of awarding those personalities with unique artistic history, living or performing in Hungary, whose intellectuality would never fit into mainstream tends. The awards have been traditionally handed out every year as part of Mediawave Festivals closing ceremony.
If a MEDIAWAVE-size festival today wants to remain within the international circuit of film festivals, it is a necessary step to organise professional meetings to exchange information about up-to-date issues in film business. The panels of the MEDIAWAVE Film Forum 2 in the second half of the festival were dedicated to the Endangered Species (of art) namely the film, as social experience in the 21st century.
The participants coming from different European countries discussed the topic from different perspectives.
MEDIAWAVE and the MAKE (Méhkasaula Cultural Association) makes the Festival colourful. The group uses slide and overhead projectors to colour the buildings in.
