Call for Programs 2017
The 21st Prix Marulic will take place from May 20th – 26th 2017 in Hvar, on the island of Hvar, Croatia!
Prix Marulic – Old Texts Revisited is an annual festival of radio plays and documentaries based on texts from literary and cultural heritage.
It is one of a kind thanks to the unique ambient that the morning and afternoon listening sessions are situated in (more info about the historical settings of the town of Hvar can be found on our website).
In the evening, discussions are held and everyone is welcome to join the jury and participate in the talks about the presented programs that day.
The festival unveils the different approaches in presenting old literary texts and our cultural heritage pre-dating 1921 to the modern listener.
The intentions of the festival are to revive our heritage. To further explain:
„Old texts” refers to literature in its widest sense, regardless of genre or form, i.e. all literary works inherited from the past. This includes plays based on unwritten cultural legacy and texts that escape strict literary definition.
An old text in this context is considered to be any text or non-material heritage pre-dating 1921 (including that year), which marks the occurrence of the first radio drama.
Please read the regulations very carefully to avoid making any mistakes which may result in the possibility of your entry being declined.
