CinefestPreparations for the 5th CineFest 2008 has begun
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.

We are proud that our festival invited and awarded—among others—”Maestro” by Géza M. Tóth, nominated afterwards for Oscar and “White Palms” by Szabolcs Hajdú, the official Hungarian candidate for the Academy Award last year. We’d like to welcome this year the spectators and guests from all over the world with equally good films and interesting programs at our festival, celebrating now its 5th anniversary as well. We can promise, the organisers will provide the same good feeling, and there will be a number of surprises as well.

We are cordially waiting everyone between the 14th and 21th of September 2008, in Miskolc.
