“Five years have past now since we organised the first time in Miskolc “CineFest”, the International Festival of Young Filmmakers. To our greatest pleasure near thousand filmmakers and ten thousands of spectators visited this event the last four years, from every corner of the world. Our goal, to give an occasion to the young directors under 35 years to show and measure their works at that festival, has been achieved. From year to year, our festival has became more and more succesful and talked about, a fact proven by the number of the films encreasing every year and by the recognition of many guests, experts and filmmakers, who are coming back to us year after year. We are getting lots of feedback from filmmakers who have been awarded at the first time at our festival, and since their works are regularly invited to other Hungarian and international festivals.” – Tibor Biró, President of the Festival
Cinefest Film Festival is surely a unique festival for young filmmakers. The good atmosphere joins to full house screenings and extreme parties at night. Nevertheless Cinefest has a very strong programme each year, featuring the best films from all around. It would be a shame to skip this great Festival.
This year the Festival has a special category: Woman in Films.
