The films are screened in Budapest cinemas Puskin and Tabán as well as Belvárosi cinema in Szeged, southern Hungary, they said.
The festival will open with Sergio Castellitto’s Fortunata, which was awarded its category’s Best Actress prize at the 2017 Cannes festival, for the titular actress Yasmine Trinca’s performance. Several works continue Italy‘s long-standing neorealist traditions.
“Ciambra” provides insight into the life of a Roma community, immigrants and the world of organised crime in the southern Italian Calabria region. “Gatta Cenerentola” is an animated film placing Cinderella’s time-honoured story into a modern Neapolitan environment.
“Ammore e malavita” and “L’Equilibrio” approach the Camorra, Naples’s infamous crime organisation, in different ways. Paolo and Vittorio Taviani’s “Una questione privata” plays among the WW2 partisans of the northern Piedmont region.
Screenings will continue in Bratislava, Prague, Brno and Ostrava.
