PAREVO International Documentary Festival

    26-28 October 2012, Budapest, Hungary, and Trnava, Slovakia

    This first two editions of the International Documentary Festival were held in Budapest (Hungary) and Trnava (Slovakia). The festival examined the events of 1956, 1968,1970 and 1989 in Central-Eastern Europe. During the festival, ten documentaries from Hungary, Slovakia and Poland were screened. The documentaries compared the "parallel revolutions", revealing the ambiguity of the events, their different causes, courses, tempo and subsequent reception.

    The PAREVO project aims to use films as an educational tool; each screening is accompanied by introductions by historians and discussions with a panel of experts.
