application for film makers
MEDIAWAVE Gathering – “ANOTHER CONNECTION” expects the applications of artists, whose individual way of creation is independent of fashion streams; for whom technique is the means not the purpose; who attempt to create an individual film code set - whether they live in a minority group or in a less exposed part of the world. We want a festival where an abundance of original, new and particular views will play a major role instead of exotic productions and tricks; where artists with different ways of thinking and free thoughts will come together.
The Fort Monostor by the river Danube near Komarom ensures the unique athmosphere. In the past three years, we have formed our new location to a globalisation-free bastion protecting / building cinema, different forms of art and the vanishing audience. The fort is with us in our endeavours.
Our geographical borderline situation gives us a chance to consciously mediate between the artistic movements of the Eastern and Western- European region - still rather isolated from each other. Our purpose is not to unify them, but to expose local values and characteristics. On the border of East and West, in the eastern border fortress of the old political and the newest/modern cultural and economical iron curtain, we attempt to reveal the products of modern age migration in film, a program supplemented by other visual performances (theatre, movement theatre, exhibitions) and folk-music, improvised and alternative music concerts.
We call the film makers’ attention that we continue our online festival with the same topic as last year (ON THE ROAD). See the details below! (Click here to see the previous edition.
You can submit to the classic and the online festival on the same entry form. One film can be sent to both.
We are looking for the different physical and imaginary walls in film art and also building and breaking down in other performances and community actions during MEDIAWAVE 2015 Gathering. (From among the loads of ideas we can reveal that there’ll be EAST and WEST MEDIAWAVE with obviously different selections, red and blue passports and controls.
