The competition program matches that of the leading European festivals and the most important premieres are brought to Hungary by the CineFest.
The Festival cooperates with several professional organizations, as a result of which we are proud to host a FIPRESCI (International Federation of Film Critics) Talent Campus this year.
This year a roundtable discussion provides opportunity to learn more about the work and views of SIGNIS and Interfilm.
In the Open Eye section we present the work of great film artists, bringing the most important festival successes of the year to Hungary.
This year’s novelty is the CineNewWave – a new competition program for Hungarian filmmakers working in animation and short feature.
This year the legendary director, Krysztof Kieslowski and his Three Colors trilogy is in the focus of the CineClassics program. The first film, the Golden Lion winner Three Colors: Blue will be screened in the presence of Juliette Binoche.
The other programs of the CineClassics are just as exciting: honoring the memory of Zoltán Latinovits who died 40 years ago. The DVD release and screening of Károly Makk’s digitally re-mastered masterpiece Love will be here and last year’s big success the genre centered screenings continue as well.
This year the greatest masters of horror are put into focus, with Wes Craven, George A. Romero, John Carpenter and others. I hope that these unique screenings will grab the audience’s attention.
