Szombathely Media Center hereby announces the Savaria Film Festival in 2018. Besides the usual categories, the event on 23-25 May 2018 has been broadened with a new category and a professional conference.

Besides documentaries, feature films and film etudes we look forward to receiving the works of student filmmakers in every genre this year. Moreover, we are organising a three-day professional conference on the topic “Motion picture as the tool to shape the nation, the settlement, the community and the personality”.
