Titanic Film Festival in Budapest

user
In additional to the annual Hungarian Film Week (Magyar Filmszemle) which is devoted exclusively to the showing of new Hungarian films, Budapest now has an authentic International film festival all of its own. The so-called called “Titanic Film Festival”, brainchild of a local cinephile, György Horváth, has actually been around as a kind of informal spectator oriented public service for over a dozen years, but it has now taken on a genuine film festival format, even dishing out cash priz...

The Budapest Filmweek Prizes

user
The feature competition winner for Best Picture was a film called “Delta” by a young director, Kornél Mundruczó, which was also awarded the traditional Gene Moskowitz prize by the foreign press delegation. However, due to my unfortunately vast degree of geographical separation from the festival grounds I didn’t get to see it, and therefore am not in a position to comment critically one way or another. This year’s Best Director Prize went to Elemer Ragalyi, for the film “Nincs Kegye...

Golden Reel is Spinning Fast in Hungarian Capital

In the final countdown of the Budapest Film Week, both the ordinary audience and professional film people are getting a clearer and clearer picture in their heads concerning the films of the event. So far, so good we might as well say; with an estimated number of nearly 30,000 viewers until now the overall feedback is very positive due to the good organization presented. Professionals say that this year’s documentary line-up is very strong, although the quality of feature films is not somethin...

38TH Hungarian film week - The long commute

user
Budapest is a big city and on my current visit I was forced to find lodging quite far from the center. As a consequence of the long commute in and out of town I had to pass up many of the competition and other films scheduled, but still managed to meet many interesting people in the evening social gatherings at the Millenaris complex which has now become the nerve center of the annual film gathering. Below some comments on the "selling points" of a number of films I would like to have seen but w...

Hungarian film week opens discretely without a bang

user
The 39th annual Hungarian Film Week (Magyar Film Szemle, 2008) got under way discretely this year on January 30 without the customary fanfare of a grand opening gala at the Budapest Convention Center. There was, consequently, no prestige opening film or the usual champagne banquet where one might rub elbows with some of the sacred cows of the local industry such as the Jancsos and the Szabos, or catch sight of a Hungarian movie star or two. Whether this is due to a drastic cutback in funding...
