As it might be suspected from the promotional material, our east-trend cultural mining has brought a treasure to the surface. It is recommended to remember the excellent musicians: Yegor Zabelov - accordion, Alexander Efimov - vass, Vova Berger - drum
Zabelov's band, who made the audience dance from the second half of their show, belongs to a style and genre impossible to define (like e.g. Íva Bittová) that is an extra merit for us. Let's not talk about them too much, you should rather listen to their music starting softly and getting more and more intense. Our cameramen unfortunatelly missed the first such tranquil start, so the video is almost completed... See the details.
“Slow river...” is experimenting a new/old form of community togetherness trying to balance the conditions of today’s consumption based trends. We are willing to apply „craftsmanship - based” implementation instead of industrial organization. Started as a „by - product” of the 26 years old Mediawave Selective 2010 in Őriszentpéter, after that within the framwork of Ördögkatlan Festival between 2011-2015. In 2016 we will start at a new location, the Castle of Somogyfajsz and the surrounding natura park. The goal is art-mediation, building communities, living in the nature/living together with nature.
Deatils, workshops, application forms avialable here!
Sanyi has been the member of our film selection committee for over 24 years. In his home coungrty, he had been struggling for living as theatre and television director. then finally he decided to try his luck abroad. His family origins from Cluj, avowing themselves Hungarians, who, if we scratch the surface, turns to be like most part of the urban population of the Carpathian basin: the blood of various nations is in their veins. He also found a jewish descendant, so he has been strengthening the Israel nation's colourful population. He couldn't resist to come back to the Long Lasting Mediawave, which name is his merit. His opinion can be read in the details.

Radu Igazság - photographer, animator, film maker, teacher - has been the most important Romanian particiapants of Mediawave Gatherings. He has missed only one of our events so far. Sometimes he was as jury member (like this time) or as a teacher of the photo and film workshop and he has made enormus number of photos. We can say that a big part of the MEDIAWAVE visual memory is due to him. He made a whale of photos this year revealed to you in thematic selections. You can reach the photos here.
Gábor Czímer reports
The name of the event suggests some sort of a top hipster-style yet the experience is original. We attended the LONG-LASTING MEDIAWAVE Film and Music Gathering in the Fort Monostor, Komárom. The event differs strongly from our country's festivals we are accustomed to. The high quality and internationality of the program is unfortunatelly unusul in Hungary.
Zsófi Szerda keeps coming back to our Gatherings for years. Her sensible mood photos catch the essence of the Long-Lasting Wave - making friends, community, internatinality, agelessness... For the photos click here.
