- Jurying process of the offline film festival:
• The selected films will be evaluated by an international jury and the award ceremony will take place at the festival.
• 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.
We do not just screen and discuss the films considering the film topic and the film maker’s culture we are also looking for ways to make each screening a community and cultural experience (tastings, music, exhibitions, etc.)

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.
