MOSCOW — Russian arthouse director Kira Muratova is to head up the jury at Hungary’s Moveast film festival when it opens in Pecs Oct. 7.

One of Eastern Europe’s newer film festivals, Moveast focuses on feature debuts and takes place in a Southern Hungarian town with a strong reputation for hosting arts events and is due to be a European Capital of Culture in 2010.

The week long festival traces its roots back to the 1960s when Hungary’s national film week — now located in Budapest — was first launched there.
