The symbol of the ČADCA ETHNOFILM IFF is TUROŇ, a carnival mask with a magical-ceremonial function, while its name is derived from the extinct animal tur, which in traditional culture is a symbol of strength and fertility.
The creator of TURON of the 22nd edition of ČADCA ETHNOFILM IFF 2022 is Peter Miko - an artist with an "untypical" perception of the glass material, from which his specific creation process also develops.
A student of the School of Applied Art in Lednické Rovnie, a student of the sculptor L. Pagáč and a student of the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava in the glass studio of J. Gavul, he has been processing glass using his own technique for several years. His work is characterized by purity, fragility and transparency. And these were the reasons that played an important role in the creation of the symbol of the festival. "Glass is such a wonderful material and has a long tradition in Slovakia and the Czech Republic," said Peter Miko.
