This year’s Weekend was held under the slogan #SAMODOĐI. It was a message to all the visitors to say goodbye to summer in a good atmosphere and welcome in the autumn season with the beautiful scenery of Rovinj. More than five thousand visitors enjoyed panels, lectures, concerts, exhibitions and networking opportunities, while soaking up the last rays of the summer sunshine. The creative environment was an opportunity to gather some of the best lecturers from around the world at almost 40 panels, lectures and discussions with some 100 speakers. There were many reasons to celebrate these days in Rovinj, from excellent panels and lecturers to crazy parties. This year, there was a lively discussion about human rights and fake news, we listened to instructive lectures about the upcoming recession, Web 3.0, the future of advertising agencies, and whether innovation can be learned. Recognizable TV personalities from the region gathered to discuss their lasting popularity, while another panel of entrepreneurs revealed their biggest business failures.
What this year’s Weekend Media Festival will be remembered for is the great atmosphere from beginning to end, thanks to wonderful performances from Darko Rundek / HRT Jazz Orchestra, Matija Cvek & Funkensteins, Konstrakta & Zemlja Gruva, Marija Mirković and many others.
