About the 6th ON THE ROAD Online Film Festival

 

 


 

 

The camera is moving, film on the road. Following the country of people setting off to hit the road, finding home. Accompanying us in our journey through life and death. Young people searching for their path, off-road adults, old ones returning to their memories. The camera is travelling toward far away countries. New perspectives appear to the cameras of film pioneers walking on new roads. The distant landscapes of the spirit.

Have a good journey!

 

 

We had lots of approaches in our mind in 2014 when we first thought of the ON THE ROAD category. We were strongly impressed by the life of people being on the road due to outside or lifestyle pressures (gypsies or other nomadic or natural groups), individuals or their special communities (hippies, vagabonds), the destiny and possibilities of refugees seeking their places. Different intellectual journeys of artists, scientists or average people also appeared to us.

 

We are greatly surprised that film makers also have varied interpretations of the category. This year the MEDIAWAVE-ANOTHER CONNECTION Film Festival received a record number of submissions, 4314 films. So far 75 film makers agreed with the online screening. We are happy and proud to show you a very strong and varied film program in short fiction, animation, documentary and experimental categories by genre. Nevertheless, the competition is very promising thematically, too. You can find films in the following topics:

- rituals

- music and dance films

- films showing rural life and environment

- humorous and dramatic works

- films dealing with minorities and migration

- a colourful and remarkable contemporary Persian film panorama

- films from young people under 30

- films showing unknown worlds from Thailand to Armenia, Kyrgistan, Egypt, Mexico and Equador.

It is important to note, that the Online International Film Competition is different from the 'classic' MEDIAWAVE International Film Competition. There are a couple of films to be shown in both competitions and this is indicated on the film site.

 

Some curiosities below may help you to catch the mood of the categories.

 

 

WHICH FILMS WILL BE SCREENED IN THE CINEMA?
