International Film and Music Gathering

Fort Monostor - Komárom

30 April - 4 May 2019

 

Special theme: RITUALS

The mystic word 'ritual' occured when thinking about the theme of our next Gathering. However, after going deeper into studying the expression, we figured out that it means much more to us: we have been instinctively using at Mediawaves for years what the ethnograpy defines as "temporary rituals", the possible solutions of the society for crises accompanying the turning points of human life. Such rites are for instance the stag and hen party, the wedding procession and the wedding party itself which have created the pillars of our gathering for four years. There are rites going hand in hand with changes of the universe, the alternation of seasons. Mayday is the beignning of the spring festival to celebrate fertility, the fresh, green, colurful, the invigorating liberty of going out from dark rooms to the nature. Several traditions and rituals relate to this period of the year, among them the gipsies' spring festival, the Ederlezi. Our Gathering is also held this time so we strongly want the different tastes of Mediawave in film, music, community programs and gastronomy to be flavoured with spices of this beautiful spring rite.
In archaic societies, the young people become full members of the community after going through the rite of passage. Let it be a suprise how we imagine such an initiation ceremony at our Gathering in the Fort Monostor, Komárom between 30 April and 4 May, 2019.
We look forward to receiving submissions from initiated and not yet initiated, young and not so young film makers, musicians and any artists wishing to work together with others, who interpret or visualise rituals in any ways, in either ancient or modern senses, and consider it as real call to become an active member of our community.

• And international student jury also evaluates the films during the Gathering.

- At the special premier screening of the films, the members of the selection commitee and the juries will talk about the film in details and have a discussion with the audience and the film makers.

7 Entry Categories
 

GENERAL – apart from feature films, each category can be submitted (short fiction, documentary, animation and experimental. If it is a genre in between, you can mark more categories.


MINORITY - Any films can be submitted which deal with the problems and situation (ethnic, everyday life, sexual, etc.) of small ethnic groups and other minorities.


DUSTY REELS - films, that were once swept away by storms of the history, and were not presented due to isolation, political or economic reasons, or only a limited number of people, but not the general public could have seen them, or were put back into their boxes after a few showings. We are searching for imprints of disappeared worlds, for films preserving their artistic value despite the passing of time.

 

MUSIC AND DANCE FILMS – we are expecting those films, which reveal the world of jazz, improvised music, the contemporary and archaic folk music, furthermore the films based on dance and movement, both in documentary and fiction category.


“ON THE ROAD” ONLINE FILM FESTIVAL – we are looking for films, which, out of the classic film festival form, can be watched (between 1 March and 30 April, 2019) and voted (until 31 March) online in a limited period of time.


The two submission types do not exclude each other, however, the online form is supposed to expand the number of film views. The online film festival tries to get closer to the consumption practice of the internet world, helps to find the new young film-lover generation and as a next step, to invite them to the community of the “real” gathering. We are aware that certain film festivals do not accept films already online so we gladly include earlier works in our online program. The awarded films will be screened at our festival between 27 April and 1 May and it is our pleasure to host the film makers at our exciting location, in Fort Monostor.


Different retrospective programs from the most amazing films in the history of Mediawave will be available in the retrospective program of the online festival.

 

8 Entry Deadline : 10 January, 2019*
