Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are happy to announce that this year’s 26th Prix Marulic will take place from May 26th – 31st 2023 in Hvar, on the island of Hvar, Croatia!

Prix Marulic – Old Texts Revisited is an annual festival of audio plays and documentaries based on texts from literary and cultural heritage. It is unique thanks to the ambiance that the morning and afternoon listening sessions take place 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 of that day.

The festival unveils the different approaches in presenting old literary texts and our cultural heritage pre-dating 1953 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 1953. From now on, the Prix Marulić Festival will be subtracting 70 years from the year of the festival taking place in order to mark the cut-off year for the “old texts”.

Please read the regulations very carefully to avoid making any mistakes which may result in the possibility of your entry being declined.
