Hungarian Film Festival unveils slate

Roster to include nine world premieres

BUDAPEST — Titles by middle-aged talent and first-time helmers dominate the feature film category of the 39th Hungarian Film Week running Jan. 29-Feb. 5 in Budapest.

The fest’s feature film roster reportedly includes nine world premieres. Bela Tarr’s “The Man from London,” which unspooled in Cannes, will be screened in Budapest on Jan. 28, one day before the Film Week opens.

Of the 18 full-length feature films to be screened during Hungary’s annual cinema festival, the line-up will include long-awaited releases by post-communist auteurs such as Gabor Dettre’s “The Class,” Benedek Fliegauf’s “Milky Way” and Gyorgy Szomjas’ “The Sun Street Boys.” Titles by new talent to the fest include Robert Alfoldi’s “Tranquility,” an adaptation of a novel by Attila Bartis; Anna Faur’s “Girls,” a modern crime story inspired by actual events; Attila Gigor’s “The Investigator”; Robert Lakatos’ road movie “Bahrtalo!”; Erik Novak’s thriller “Nosedive”; Bela Paczolay’s epic “Adventurers”; and Attila Till’s “Panic.”

There will be 104 films screened:18 features, 37 shorts and experimental films, 33 documentaries, 13 scientific films, and three experimental docs.

An international jury that will include actress Maia Morgenstern (“The Passion of the Christ”), international critic Klaus Eder, Hungarian helmer Krisztina Goda, Hungarian Cinematographers Assn. president Janos Kende and theater director Istvan Marta will vote on the fest’s main feature film prize, the newly renamed Golden Reel.

Fest will be held at Budapest’s Palace Cinemas Mammut and the Millennium Center.
