MFG is an event that has been interdisciplinary since its inception, combining theater, science, criticism, fine arts, music and film. It is by definition a festival that serves as a forum for the exchange of thoughts, experiences and interpretations. It also re-presents the problem of reading and interpreting Gombrowicz's work in a changing reality. In the first editions of the event, Rita Gombrowicz, the widow of the deceased writer, patronized and kindly supported it with her recommendations.
Starting from the 8th edition, the MFG has the form of a competition in which the performances are judged by a jury composed of theater people - critics, directors and theater scientists.
The event, organized thanks to the financial support of the City Hall of Radom and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, enjoys considerable interest from the public and critics.
The choice of the place where the festival devoted to the works of Witold Gombrowicz takes place every two years is not accidental. The vicinity of Radom is the writer's homeland. The Gombrowicz family estate, where Witold was born, was located in nearby Małoszyce; in the palace in Wsola near Radom, where the Gombrowicz Museum is located today, his brother Jerzy lived in the years 1924-1939, where the author of "Ferdydurke" spent a few weeks almost every summer. This is where his first literary ideas were born. Many towns near Radom have been immortalized in his novels. In this region almost all members of this closest family rest.
