Dobrodošli

V Folklornem društvu VAL Piran že več kot pol stoletja združujemo mlade iz cele slovenske Istre in skozi ples in glasbo prenašamo slovensko kulturno izročilo iz roda v rod. Folklorno društvo VAL Piran je prostovoljno, samostojno, nepridobitno združenje fizičnih oseb, ki z ljubiteljskim delovanjem uresničujejo svoje interese na področju kulture in s tem prispevajo k bogatenju kulturnega življenja v svojem širšem in ožjem okolju.

Želimo biti gonilna sila kulturnega dogajanja v slovenski Istri. V društvu imamo strokovnjake iz različnih področji, z veliko podjetniškega duha. S skupnimi močmi že vrsto let organiziramo MIFF – Mednarodni folklorni festival sredozemskih držav, z namenom predstavitve različnih plesnih in glasbenih kultur sredozemskih držav tako turistom kot tudi domačinom.

Društvo je v preteklosti tudi sodelovalo v organizaciji pomembnih kulturnih prireditev kot so Praznični dnevi slovenske folklore  v Piranu (v letih  1997, 1980, 1981, 1982 in 1988), Festivalu Melodije Morja in sonca ter pri prireditvi FolkArt (preden se je FolkArt razvil v festival v okviru festivala Lent v Mariboru) v portoroškem Avditoriju (v letih 1984 in 1985). V letih 2002 in 2003 smo organizirali tudi Poletne folklorne večere na portoroški ploščadi.

V zadnjih letih pa smo ponosni predvsem na Mednarodni folklorni festival sredozemskih držav – MIFF (angl. Mediterranean International Folklore Festival), ki ga naše društvo uspešno organizira že od leta 2003 in čigar namen je združevanje in prikaz različnih kultur iz sredozemskega območja, združevanje mladih folkloristov in sklepanje novih poznanstev. Prireditev je pomembna za celotno slovensko Obalo. Z inovativnostjo in prodornostjo pa smo uspeli festival razširiti tudi na Hrvaško, natančneje v Umag.

Naše društvo je imelo pomembno vlogo pri ustanovitvi Primorskega združenja folklornih skupin. Včlanjeni smo v Zvezo kulturnih društev Karol Pahor iz Pirana in Zvezo ljudskih tradicijskih skupin Slovenije, ki deluje pod okriljem Mednarodnega združenja folklornih festivalov - CIOFF.

L’Associazione folcloristica VAL Pirano unisce da più di mezzo secolo i giovani di tutta l’Istria slovena, ed inoltre diffonde la tradizione culturale slovena attraverso il ballo e la musica di generazione in generazione. L’Associazione folcloristica VAL Pirano è un gruppo autonomo, basato sul volontariato che non ha scopo di lucro. È costituito da persone fisiche che con la loro attività da dilettanti mettono in atto i propri interessi nell’ambito della cultura, contribuendo così all’arricchimento della vita culturale del proprio ambiente stretto e largo.

Nel passato l'associazione ha collaborato anche nell’organizzazione di importanti manifestazioni culturali come: I giorni festivi del folclore sloveno a Pirano (nel 1980, 1981, 1982, 1988, e nel 1997), Il festival delle melodie del mare e del sole e con la manifestazione FolkArt (prima di essersi sviluppato in Festival nell’ambito del Festival Lent a Maribor) presso l’Auditorium di Portorose (dal 1984 al 1985). Negli anni 2002 e 2003, abbiamo organizzato anche Le serate folcloristiche estive sul piazzale centrale di Portorose.

Negli ultimi anni siamo soprattutto fieri di poter organizzare con successo già dal 2003 il MIFF - Festival folcloristico internazionale dei paesi del Mediterraneo- (versione inglese: Mediterranean International Folklore Festival). Lo scopo è quello di unire e rappresentare le diverse culture del Mediterraneo, l’unione dei giovani folcloristi e l’instaurazione di nuove conoscenze. La manifestazione è importante per l’intero litorale sloveno. Grazie all’innovazione e alla nostra destrezza, siamo riusciti a diffondere il Festival anche in Croazia, precisamente a Umago.

Il nostro gruppo è stato il fondatore ed il promotore principale dell’ associazione dei gruppi folcloristici del Litorale. Inoltre facciamo parte anche dell’Associazione dei gruppi culturali Karol Pahor di Pirano e dell’ Associazione dei gruppi popolari e tradizionali di Slovenia che operano sotto il patrocinio dell’ Organizzazione internazionale dei festival folcloristici- denominata CIOFF.

Festival Conditions
 

1. Meals and accommodation is provided to the groups at Hostel/school dormitory or in the local hotels if budget permiting, if not, a 150 EUR/member participation Fee must be paid for 5 nights on Full Board basis.

MIFF festival is runed on the voluntary bases and already from the beginning the festival is not making any extra money/profit. That means that the festival is depending on the sponsorships.

In the last years - due to the lack of strong sponsorships and very expensive accomodation in this tourist area - we moved from a CIOFF rules based festival to a festival where the partecipants have to pay some small fee to help us covering the festival's expenses that are not low. That means that each partecipant (including drivers) has to pay us 150 EUR/person for 5 nights in a Hostel type of Accomodation on a full board bases.

As you maybe already know, our festival can be also a great holiday experience, because the groups have to dance only in the evenings and we are offering also two interesting free excursions. At the day time you are free to do whatever you want. The festival's location is very beautiful, you can visit the medieval cities of Piran and Koper, you can visit the world known Postojna Caves (around 50 km away), you can visit Bled (around 180 km) and last but not least you can go to Venice in Italy (around 180 km away) to see this unique city. Of course you can visit also Croatian cities of Rovinj (around 90 km away), Pula (around 100 km away) or Opatija (around 100 km away) where you can have also unforgettable beach experience. So, all this are facts that we have to stress to convince you that also this paying option is not a bad one.
