A Short Note from the Festival Director:
Just four days before the Opening of the 14th M:brane, we took the hard decision to cancel the event. One year of preparations just fell to the floor during unusual and chaotic days. not many other or any forums and festivals were cancelled at that time, so we felt quite alone. However, we managed to -in hast- make online Pitchings and the RealYoung workshop. And our lovely Jury was subsequently able to select of Winner of the 2020 Pitch Award. Hurray!
It felt strange and sad not to be able to welcome old and new colleagues to Malmö and M:brane. But we received overwhelmingly many supportive and warm responses from understanding participants and collaborators. Well, a few ”It’s only a flu” were muttered, but that changed quite fast.
Now we are heading forward towards the 15th M:brane even if we still don’t know how the situation will be in March next year. There is a shift, absolutely, and now we are deeply involved in the planning of making a great event - again. So keep your eyes open and we will share our news with you fluently as the process of giving new shape to M:brane 2021 will emerge step by step.
