The workshop is already third in a row to be organized in cooperation of South-Siberian KINOCHERDAK and Hungarian MEDIAWAVE Festival.
This years international summer camp is to support to gain practice-based experiences in filmmaking and photography. The camp is already a traditional form of deepening the Győr-Novosibirsk friendship aiming young and creative people to meet and see the world.
Creative work in the art workshops has resulted prospering professional cooperations and true friendships. See MEDIAWAVE Gallery and the Film Archive.
Since last year the camp has been for the mainly young people at the age of attendees and who are at least 16 years old as a part of the PASSORT CONTROL International Juvenile Workshop founded in 2006 and organized at foreign countries as well.
The organizers are focusing on professional work and are not taking a hand in pedagogic supervision. They are looking for young people who long to improve their creative skills and have enough fanaticism in order to show their talent.
Breaking the traditions the summer camp is now moved to Kisharsány and is to be a part of the Ördögkatlan Festival 29. July - 9. August. The animators of the Festival (Bárka Theatre, the House of Arts, Pécs) have requested the Mediawave Foundation to organize the programs in Kisharsány. It seems to be a favourable occasion to hold the camp at a domestic and inspirational place.
The 38th West-Hungarian Independent Film Days will be organised in Balatonalmádi between 20-22 March, 2009.
The FILMFUND GYŐR calls for an application for short fiction films shot in Győr and in its region to stimulate the film production in Győr. As guidelines, the tenderers give four keywords: VILLAGE - CITY - DREAM CAR - BREAKDOWN. The specifications are that the film plan cannot be a road movie and the word 'breakdown' is interpreted as an abstract expression.

'On the anniversary of the Film Week, a new-wave generation came up', said Jenő Hartyándi, who, as later admitted, was highly impressed by his jury-mate, the Oscar-winner cinematographer, Vilmos Zsigmond.
The feature film jury of the 40th Hungarian Film Week had been watching 18 films in a few days. The member from Győr of the prestigious jury told our paper that they worked in a very intense tempo: they sat into the projection room at ten in the morning and after a short lunch break, they finished watching the films around half past ten..
