MEDIAWAVE ARCHIVE 1991-2016 :: MEDIAWAVE 2008


MEDIAWAVE’2008
International Film and Music Festival

„FÉNYÍRÓK FESZTIVÁLJA – ANOTHER CONNECTION”
Győr, 26 April - 3 May 2008



 

SHADES OF 1968 - SPECIAL FOCUS

 

The 40th anniversary is a good opportunity to think over and speak about the artistic and social effects of this era, which on the one hand can be regarded as a mile stone of our New Age, but which, on the other hand, has been unfortunately neglected so far.  At the end of the 1960's the strengthened civil and student movements made a huge attempt to push the states parading their power to the background, and even if their movements were repressed, they worth to be mentioned. In the USA: peace demonstrations against Vietnam War, the civil rigths movement, and the intoduction of the hippie subculture. In the West of Europe: French students' revolt, in East/Central-Europe: the Prague Spring, where the Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact allies (among them with us, Hungarians, too) invaded the country to halt the reforms. Meanwhile in Hungary with the so-called "new economic mechanism" some kind of economic reforms began, and - paralelly with it - the "dance song contest" became more and more popular.

 

MEDIAWAVE Festival chose some characteristic events of this era as inspiration for its programmes:

- Széchenyi University organizes a conference with the help of well-known lecturers: "1968 - The Turning Point?" In addition: poster exhibition.

- Jirí Menzel was awarded by Oscar that year for "Closely Watched Trains" - our special guest is the Czech director.

- Ten Years After, the legendary rock band will help the several other bands to evoke the spirit of Woodstock on 27 April on the flood - basin of Mosoni-Danube holding concerts all the day for free.

WORKSHOP

PASSPORT CONTROL International Film, Photo and Critic Workshop 5

 

PASSPORT CONTROL International Film, Photo and Critic Workshop proved to be the most important innovation of MEDIAWAVE Festival'2006 with 60 participants from 10 countries (from Hong-Kong to Italy). Since then two workshops were realized abroad: the 3th edition of it was organized in Siberia, Russia, while the 4th one was held in Kars, East-Turkey.

Participants of the 5th edition's film workshop will be taught by Marcell Ivány (Hungarian filmdirector) and Steve Sanguedolce (Canadian filmdirector), while the photographers' teacher will be Péter Szabó and last but not at least the critics' conductor will be György Báron.

During Mediawave Film Festival the Project Director of CortoModa Simone Zoppi will present a project and announce a competition for young professionals. Each participant of Passport Control will have an opportunity to take part in competition.
Within the main program of Passport Control workshop CortoModa teachers: Simone Zoppi, Alessandro Salomone (Video-Designer) and Talos Buccellati (Fashion and Advertising Photographer) will give series of lessons and master-classes for filmmakers and photographers.

Besides master-classes CortoModa program also includes shootings and team-work with young clothes designers.

International Jury Committee will select the best works. These works will be included in main competition program for the next edition of Cortomoda’08, which will be held in Italy on the White Night Festival.

 

 

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

 

The festival is considered as a Central and Eastern European transit-festival, since by the festival centre (Győr, Hungary) there are going to happen simultaneously cultural and artistic events in 20 different venues of 4 different countries in the region (beside Hungary in Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic).


 

The MEDIAWAVE International Film and Music Festival on the one hand is an international competition of films, on the other hand it’s a mixture of jazz, ethno, alternative and electronic musical concerts and workshops. In addition exhibitions, theatrical and dance performances are held accompanied by gastronomical and natural programmes.

MEDIAWAVE, which involves many cultural and leisure programmes, is an excellent festival, which helps us prepare for summer. It is held in the period of time when we say goodbye to bad weather and we greet sunshine. The nature turns into green, flowers appear and birds start to sing (it also means that girls and women wear less clothes). After all we can say that MEDIAWAVE is the best way of celebrating summer in advance.

The programme augurs well. The centre will be Győr just as usual.
