On the Road Online Film Festival started today

MEDIAWAVE started the On the Road Online Festival 7 years ago to extend the availability of the type of films we prefer. The online competition is normally different from the classic film competition but this year, exceptionally, we have only an online one. The reason is that we are celebrating our 30th anniversary and we decided to screen selections from the past three decades.

The films of the online competition will be awarded by a jury in three different categories and there is an audiance prize, too. We'll screen the awarded films at the Mediawave Film and Music Gathering between 28 April and 2 May.


The films are available online until 27 April, 2020.


We would be glad if you could give us feedbacks about video playback and other occuring problems ((k.klesitz@gmail.com).

It was time to update our old static web cover directed visitors to different websites of our activities.

We tried to create a portal including more, constantly updated news, links to find actual programs quickly and some older yet exciting events. Hopefully it will meet the needs for those who want quick and fresh information and at the same time it can be a useful platform to search in the complex website including two film and photo archives plus a web tv.

We would be glad to get feedbacks from you not only about nice things but also the arising mistakes and faults.

Please, note that our past is far for being fully processed. We've been working on it as much as possible.

2020 TROUBADOURS - Creative Europe cooperation with Mediawave partnership




2020 Troubadours is a cultural project in the roam of the Creative Europe-program of the EU. The project is run by cultural non-profit organizations from Belgium, France, Serbia, Hungary and Ukraine. Our main objective is to improve the transnational mobility of some world music artists coming from those regions, by setting up a serie of ‘Trouba Labs’ (concerts/workshops) and ‘Trouba Train Trips’.


These days, Europe is confronted with a huge identity crisis: the ‘old’ Europe tries to give answers to a changing society, to migration, to candidate member states which want to be part of the European dream... Although European world music is a keystone and a story teller of our extraordinary European past, people are no longer aware of this. Our project wants to show the possibilities of European world music in order to bring people together, to stimulate the cultural dialogue and to show that European cultural co-operation is a solid way to counter discrimination and to heal post-war traumas....

Just touring and playing music? No! #2020Troubadours also wants to stimulate the discussion between artists and the audience about the identity crisis the EU is faced with... Because European world music tells us so much about the fascinating ‘human history’ of Europe: our world music is a vivid exponent of regional cultural traditions. Popular world music helped people surviving everywhere in Europe in times of difficult personal or political situations, such as crises, wars, occupations, etc. Unfortunately, it is still like that today.


The first station of the project is at Mediawave. On the 1st of May, the participant musicians present themselves. Next day, in the nature, the closing concert of the cooperaion will take place.

You can watch films for free in different topics and genres until our standard film festival (29 April). Click here for the movies and vote! Beside the audience, a professional jury is also judging the films. Hereby we inform the film makers and film lovers that the selection of the tremendous number of film submissions (4314 from 117 countries) is completed. The program will be published soon.

FILM SUBMISSION RESULT - 4314 submissions from 117 countries

We received unusually big number of submissions for the 2019 competition. In the previous years, the film makers of the world sent average 1000 entries from 80-90 countries. It happened only once in the Mediawave history that the number of submissions reached 1800, causing pretty much work to deal with. This year it is twice as big task as it was, however our film staff has been intensively working on handling, displaying and selecting the thousands of entries. (details in "see more").

We gladly recommend you to search the program of the Mediawave Gathering and make plans so you ca actively participate at the end-of-April long weekend (5 days). The music program is almost complete and the film program will soon be available. The film program was selected by international selection teams and currently we are scheduling the programs.  This year for the first time we attempt to create the community cinema experience with involvement of film makers, juries, student juries and visitors as a combination of classical and new trends of social screenings. We are happy to invite you for those events and feel free to get informed. You can also have an idea about the structure here.

You can also reach the afternoon programs - Riverside picnic as well as the community programs, however you can submit with your community projects until the last moment.

This year we offer programs for families with kids, too.

THE COLLECTOR - Miklós Both's Gold Cross

We have had an effective cooperation with Miki since 2010. First we involved him into our roma-Hungarian music workshops and then we travelled around the minority-inhabited areas of Inner South China searching for musicians to bring them to Hungary. We helped his unique music collector activity in Transylvania last year. In our summer camps, he goes collecting music with young people to the gipsy villages of Somogy County. We are proud that he was awarded the Gold Cross of the Hungarian Order of Merit last week.

We have over 40 videos of his abovementioned activity, feel free to check them here (you can play them only with Firefox)

THE BRIDGEWOMAN - Hungarian Gold Cross for Ildikó Nagy

Ildikó 's relationship with Mediawave dates back to her grammar school years, when she started to work there as a volunteer. In the early 2000's she became one of the music organisers of the team and not much later she was already in charge of the international jazz programs. This was the period when Mediawave had grown a characterful European jazz festival, in which she played a significant role.

Meanwhile Mediawave was accepted to EJN (European Jazz Network) where she soon became a board member.

She met her husband, Chris Potter, the world-known American jazz saxophonist at Mediawave. Since then she has lived in New York, where, as the director of the Hungarian House, coordinates and builds the Hungarian community and cultural life with never-ending enthusiasm and perseverance.

For this activity, she was honoured with the Gold Cross of the Hungarian Order of Merit in New York City on 12 March, 2018.

She is with her daughter, Anna, in the photo.

THE LYRISIST - László Villányi's Cross of the Hungarian Order of Merit

More friends of us has received national awards lately, including László Villányi, with who we have worked together for decades, making films and documenting literary events.


This year there will be a unique presentation of the Műhely Periodical's special edition "JOY" (he was the editor in chief) at the MEDIAWAVE Film and Music Gathering.


He was awarded this merit for the acknowledgement of his poems representing a unique and strong voice in contemporary Hungarian lira and his high-level editor activity enriching the cultural life of the city of Győr.
