Mediawave Film Forum 2 quality time

Living in the forrest, working in the city, it felt like disney "white snow and the seven dwarfs"...but were GIANTS and the discussion were very inspiring.

If a MEDIAWAVE-size festival today wants to remain within the international circuit of film festivals, it is a necessary step to organise professional meetings to exchange information about up-to-date issues in film business. The panels of the MEDIAWAVE Film Forum 2 in the second half of the festival were dedicated to the Endangered Species (of art) namely the film, as social experience in the 21st century.

The participants coming from different European countries discussed the topic from different perspectives.
