THE ARCHIVE OF THE FILMFUND GYŐR OPENS IN MARCH


 

Kultúrpart/ MTI's article

The Filmfund Győr will open its archive in March: the collection of 20 thousand video tapes will serve research and educational purposes. 'The further aims of the Filmfund Győr include the development of regional film production and the organisation of different film events', said Jenő Hartyándi, the director of the MEDIAWAVE Festival at the press conference of the 40th Hungarian Film Week in Budapest.

 

'We would like to create a different film archive from the National Film Archive in Budapest. What we have in mind is a wider pattern preserving the whole visual memory of Győr', emphasised Jenő Hartyándi. 'The huge archive contains newsreels from between the two world wars, amateur and experimental films from the 60's, independent, portrait and feature films as well which are waiting for clarifying their rights', added Hartyándi.

György Durst, producer and one of the participants of the initiation, informed the audience about the winners of the screenplay-writer application. The jury awarded Péter Szalay's documentary, 'Border-Line Case' and the 'village sci-fi', 'Stary Sky' from Mihály Buzás.

The MEDIAWAVE Festival has attracted several international film makers to the event in Győr and beside it gives place to professional forums and workshops. The main organiser of the Passport Control International Visual Art Workshop, Nándor Varju, said that beside the MEDIAWAVE Festival and the Summer Film Camp first time this year they organise a preparation programme between 13 and 22 February. Young people can try themselves in music, fine arts, critic writing and architecture.

The Government of Győr voted for establishing the local filmfund last summer. They entrusted the MEDIAWAVE Public Foundation with the establishment and the professional advisory tasks and ensured 25 million HUF to make the first steps.
