A Vienna-based group formed in 2004, Fatima Spar and The Freedom Fries is a Euro-Asian indie jazz band with a Austrian-Turkish singer that integrates swing and musical styles from the Balkans.
The band derives its name from the euphemism for French Fries used in the U.S. after the French governmentʼs refusal to support the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

But for the MEDIAWAVE Virág means a little more. In an approaching storm, an old friend with his shy daughter popped in the MEDIAWAVE Summer Film Camp. It happened in 2004. Then she returned many times. And also more an more movies were born and the talent started to shine through these works. Her last work was produced in the camp of the MEDIAWAVE PASSPORT CONTROL Workshop which took place in East-Turkey. At that time she had been studying at the Theater and Film Art University. Between 2007-2010 she participated in the selection committee of the MEDIAWAVE Festival. In 2010, she and her fellow partners gave help in scriptwriting (Fiction Science Lab) to young artists in the MEDIAWAVE Film Forum. She led the scriptwriter workshop in the Passport Control Film Camp’2010. This year the audience can watch her movie Something Blue in the short film section of the competition program of the festival.
