Jameson CineFest - Miskolc International Film Festival

The flourishing Jameson CineFest will celebrate its 8th edition in September 2011, housing in a new cultural complex House of Arts. Each year, after a careful pre-selection, the top 15-20 features and 40-50 shorts, documentaries and animation films have the opportunity to compete in the official program. Most of the films came from Central Europe, from the US and Germany, but we received films from Indonesia to South America. Jameson CineFest provides an unique look into young international cinema's landscape, screening the best flicks from all over the world.

Many attractive supplementary programs, exhibitions, concerts, film history workshops, roundtable discussions will accompany the nightly screenings. Our CineClassics series started in 2010: explore with us Hungary's exceptionally rich film heritage: Oscar winner British screenwriter Emeric Pressburger was born in Miskolc, legendary founder of Paramount PicturesAdolph Zukor in the nearby village Ricse, 20th Century-Fox founder William Fox in Tolcsva, in the heart of the renowned Tokaj wine region, just to name a few.  The 2009 conference dedicated to Emeric Pressburger (with the participation of his Oscar winner grandson Kevin Macdonald), and the 2010 workshop about Zoltan Korda was a true gem.

Jameson CineFest is one of the most attractive festivals of Central Europe, where our guests can get know the fresh cavalcade of world cinema, the hidden treasures of film history, fine food and drinks, concerts and parties - with true Hungarian hospitality.

See you in Miskolc in September 2011!

Poppy Jasper Film Festival

The Poppy Jasper Film Festival celebrates the short filmmaking craft and conveys its passion for filmmaking to the community, and has been acclaimed by MovieMaker Magazine as “one of the top 25” in the country for its focus on filmmaker experience. This expresses itself in the continual ways that festival organizers actively foster interaction, ideas, and ongoing contact between filmmakers at all levels of experience and invited screenwriters, directors, producers, and actors. These industry professionals include Academy and Emmy award winners and nominees, people whose extensive experience in the filmmaking industry brings audiences a close-up view of the passion motivating independent filmmaking. The short films (30 minutes or less), which run from horror to comedy, documentary to sci-fi, musical to romance, all have one thing in common: they entertain their audiences. Additionally, this 501(c)3 nonprofit organization awards an annual scholarship to an up-and-coming student filmmaker. Taking its name from the beautiful and rare poppy jasper gemstone found exclusively in Morgan Hill, California, the Poppy Jasper Film Festival mines the popular, fast-growing niche of short films.  The Seventh Annual Poppy Jasper Film Festival will be held November 12 -14, 2010 in Morgan Hill, California.  For further information about the Poppy Jasper Film Festival, please visit www.poppyjasperfilmfest.org

Dances With Films

Dances With Films, now in its 14th year, champions the unflinching spirit at the very core of the independent film scene. While the vast majority of film fests rely heavily on celebrity, we have relied on the innovation, talent, creativity and sweat equity that revolutionized the entertainment industry. And that reliance continues to prove successful with alumni moving on to write and direct celebrity-studded vehicles, star in blockbuster movies and network series, produce multi-million dollar films and create hit TV shows. Oh....and we even have a few OSCAR® nominees... In a world of formulaic, homogenized film festivals Dances With Films continues to break the rules
