Many attractive supplementary programs, exhibitions, concerts, film history workshops, roundtable discussions will accompany the nightly screenings.
CineClassics series started in 2010: explore with us Hungary's exceptionally rich film heritage: Oscar winner British screenwriter Emeric Pressburger was born in Miskolc, legendary founder of Paramount Pictures Adolph Zukor in the nearby village Ricse, 20th Century-Fox founder William Fox in Tolcsva, in the heart of the renowned Tokaj wine region, just to name a few. The 2009 conference dedicated to Emeric Pressburger (with the participation of his Oscar winner grandson Kevin Macdonald), the 2010 workshop about Zoltan Korda was a true gem, and also the 2011 retrospective, exhibition and conference honouring Istvan Szots and the 70 years old masterpiece Men on the Alps. The Budapest born Oscar winner Michael Curtiz's 70 years old Casablanca was also a hit in 2012.
More About Miskolc:
The former industrial city of Northern Hungary, Miskolc, the third most populated city of the country, thanks to the significant innovations and careful restorations is one of the cultural, touristic and spa centers of Hungary. The city's old houses, streets and places were almost completely renovated. Miskolc and its surroundings has many architectural, artistic and historical sights, as Lillafured, the medieval castle of Diosgyor or the nearby beautiful Bukk Mountain. The breathtaking cave bath and spa in Miskolc-Tapolca is a really unique natural formation.”
