Hungarian Filmweek Starts On Monday

Next week marks the celebration of Hungarian film. This, now, is an exceptional occasion when the results of three years are presented to the viewers. Nominations to the Film Week included films made in the framework of the film support system renewed in 2012, as well as independent productions made without subsidy, and across all genres.

The Hungarian Filmweek, which will be held between 13 and 19 October at the Cinema City MOM Park, will presents 332 movies including seven films with directorial debuts. The movies are divided into six categories: feature films, tv films, documentaries, short films, animations and public interest docs. Visitors will have to opportunity to watch movies like János Szász’s Notebook, Márk Bodzsár’s Heavenly Shift, Ádám Császi’s Land of Storms, and Attila Herczeg’s comedy What Ever Happaned to Timi.

Similarly to previous years, the screenings are accompanied by a script competition and a film poster exhibition. The hosts are proud to announce the world premiere of the The Undesirable (1914) by Mihály Kertész that can be seen by the wider audience in a restored, digitised format. The Hungarian Filmweek is a celebration that shows the current status of Hungarian film as of 2014. The best one can do to celebrate it is to visit it, talk about it, praise or criticise it also on other days of the year, because this is the way to keep it aware of its existence.
