International Vilmos Zsigmond Film Fest In Szeged, 8 – 12 September
The 4th international Vilmos Zsigmond Film Festival, named after the Oscar-winning Hungarian cinematographer, will celebrate two anniversaries this year, the organisers said.

The festival held between September 8 and 12 in Szeged, Zsigmond’s home town, will mark the eminent cinematographer’s 90th birth anniversary and the 100th anniversary of the opening of the city’s first cinema, they said.

The festival will award, in three categories, the Vilmos Zsigmond Prize for best cinematography, to be decided by a jury of five on Sept. 12.

According to the festival’s home page, a record number of entries were made this year, including 67 feature-length films, 430 shorts and 41 experimental films.

The highest number come from Spain, followed by Mexico, the United States, Belgium, Germany, Russia and Hungary.
