ANOTHER CONNECTION - MEDIAWAVE Film and Music Gathering celebrates its 30th annivesary in 2020. We want to make it special by inviting artists, friends, films and performances that have made our event unique so far. We made a decision to change our usual film program structure: the main program is going to be made up of the most decisive films of our history. That is why we will not announce a regular fim competition. However, we would like to give the opportunity for the new films to appear at the anniversary. Our On the Road Online Film Festival has been running for 5 years and now we invite film makers with pleasure to participate there. The best films selected by a professional jury will be screened at the Festival and the directors will also be invited.
Our event is a free spirit artistic and community oriented festival in the unique, historic Fort Monostor, Komárom, by the river Danube. We prefer original views independent of fashion streams reflected in films as well as in music and other arts. We tend to establish real communities and connections by announcing and giving place to different actions. Besides screenings, we have jazz, improvised, ethno, folk concerts and workshops, several exhibitions, theatre and smaller actions. Improvised party is all day long on, spiced with gastonomy and open air cooking. The fortress can host three hundred people and is a good place for tents and sleeping on military beds.
We accept submissions until 8 December, 2019.
You can send your films in short fiction, animation, documentary and experimental film categories.
The award is a participation at our Gathering between 28 April - 2 May, 2020.
Best Short Fiction Film

“ON THE ROAD” ONLINE FILM FESTIVAL
Our online film festival tries to get closer to the consumption habits 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 28 April and 2 May, 2020 and it is our pleasure to invite the film makers in program to our exciting location, in Fort Monostor by the River Danube.
Different retrospective programs from the most amazing films in the history of Mediawave will be available in the retrospective program of the online festival.
SCREENING AT THE MEDIAWAVE INTERNATIONAL FILM AND MUSIC GATHERING
The winner films in each category will be screened at our Film Festival between 28 April and 2 May, 2020. The awarded directors will be invited to present their films and be part of our community.
