Highlights: 'Budapest Classics Film Marathon', On Until 18 September
‘Budapest, Vienna, Hollywood’ is the slogan of this movie fest, held by the National Film Institute for the fifth time this year, which is described as an international festival of restored films.

Over six days, visitors to the festival featuring recently restored, popular classics and rarities can enjoy around 100 of the finest films from global movie history.

This marathon of movies boasts a wealth of programmes this year too, with the main theme of the festival is the Central European roots of Hollywood. 

The core of the programme comprises works by artists who, setting out from Budapest and frequently with stop-offs in Vienna and Berlin, made it to Hollywood where they became globally famous.
