The festival will offer a competition of 16 new features from across the world, including a Hungarian film, festival director Tibor Bíró told public broadcaster M1.
The festival programme will also include screenings of 33 short features, as well as film classics and outstanding films from recent international festivals, Bíró said.
August is best known for his films Pelle the Conqueror (1987) and The Best Intentions (1991). On the sidelines of the festival, the international federation of film journalists (FIPRESCI) will hold its annual general assembly meeting in Hungary, for the first time.
