PASSPORT CONTROLL'23 International Workshops and Summer Gathering

This year's Passport Controll Art Workshops and Community Gathering took place between 17-21th July, at the wonderful Kund Castle and Bird Paradise at Somogyfajsz.

This year we organised the 33rd edition of the MediaNEWave Gathering, that started with the Mediawave International Film Festival at the Cirkó-Gejzír Cinema in Budapest, and continued with a spring renewal celebration at the wonderful Hungarian countryside, Ravazd. A short summary film of the Ravazd Renewal Celebration can be found here.

At the end of May (26-28 May), the next stage, entitled Pentecoste Improvisations, took place, bringing to life the "classical" music, theatre, dance and community lineage of Mediawave at the Ravazd Őrhegy Manor. Catch the mood here.
