Dear Friends,

i have a really sad announcement to make. Our dear Friend András Selyem (former director of the festival) yesterday passed away. He had an accident in Slovakia 3 days ago, and after 3 days of fight for his life, yesterday he died.
I want to ask you if you can say a small prayer for Him. We lost a great friend, and an extraordinary man.
I’m sorry for the bad news! May the Muuu be with Him!

And the winners are!
