Dear friends of MFPF in High Tatras,
the MFPF's goal is to encourage all starting authors to make a first step, pull their works out of the drawers or computers and come to present them to our festival. It is an ideal opportunity to compare their work with others, to gain experience, new inspiration, to gain self-confidence and motivation for further artistic creation. In addition to the main focus of the festival - movies and photos from under the water, accompanynig v event Clean Water will be part of the festival as well. You can spend free time on diving evenings, for example, in the unforgettable Grand Permon Wellness Hotel or on the dance floor. At the same time, we open the area for diving clubs to present our activities. The rich history of the festival is based on well-known diving figures such as Jean-Michel Cousteau, André Hartman, Peter Áč, Ľudovít Hanák, Richard Jaroňek, Steve L. Lichtag and photographer and filmmaker Milan Czapay. In this tradition and we want to continue, during divers evenings the festival will be enriched with interesting guests also this year.
