Daazo.com is the proud sponsor of the short film programme of the Jameson Cinefest

Daazo.com, the short film sharing site supported by the MEDIA Programme of the EU, is the official sponsor of the short film competition programme of the  Jameson Cinefest International Festival that will show 19 short films this year. Daazo.com offered a prize of HUF 150.000 for the best short film. The prize will be awarded at the closing ceremony of the festival.

It is no exaggeration to say that the best short films of the year will be shown in Miskolc between 17-25 September – prize-winning works of the most important film festivals will be presented in Hungary at the Jameson Cinefest.

The festival season in Berlin started with the Romanian short Silent River, telling the story of illegal border crossers – its director, Anca Miruna Lăzărescu will be there  in Miskolc in person to present her film. The Hungarian premiere of the Palme d’Or-winning  French short, Cross Training will also take place at the Cinefest. For You I Will Fight gives a glimpse into the life of female soldiers – it was awarded a Silver Leopard at Locarno, while Out of Erasers, showing the clash of erasers and scribbles with mixed methods, got an award at Annecy. Cédric Prévost’s film Hymen comes from Clermont Ferrand and tells a curious small adventure tale. The Hungarian film scene will be represented by students of the University of Theatre and Film: Gábor Reisz (On a lower level) and Dénes Nagy (Report) were both awarded at the Filmszemle, Béla Bagota’s With Clean Hands won the Sándor Simó award for the best graduation film.
