45 years of festival history, from 1974 until 2018!

Select a year:

The best of new Hungarian Cinema and a throwback to the glorious history of a lesser known film industry.

Few countries have a film tradition that is so narrowly tied to the darker pages of its history. The unprocessed past of autoritarian regimes, fascism and communism has been dominating the Hungarian cinema for almost a century. The work of Miklós Jancsó is a prime example of that, but also the six contemporary Hungarian features in the programme are overshadowed by history.
