Hungarian Film Week adds foreign titles

Event to change from February

Hungary’s Film Week is going international for the first time to match the country’s growing profile as a center for European and international co-productions.

Zoltan Korosi — the new head of the Motion Picture Public Foundation, which organizes the event — said February’s 42nd edition will include films from Eastern Europe and an international jury.

“Budapest has a central position in the film industry, both in production and service work,” Korosi said. “It is time to build up a high-quality festival to match.”

Screenings will be widened from one location to include cinemas across the city.

The fest, which has long been seen as largely restricted to the city’s cultural elite, will also include complementary events, such as concerts and exhibitions.

Hungary, which five years ago introduced tax incentives worth up to 25% of a film’s budget for movies shot in the country, has seen a big increase in co-productions, helped more recently by the introduction of regional film funds.
