Zsigmond Vilmos Film Festival in May
Zsigmond Vilmos Film Festival is going to take place from the 10th to the 13th of May in Szeged, in the hometown of the world-famous, Academy Award-winner cinematographer.
The festival – as something unique in Hungary – primarily aims to draw attention on the work of cinematographers, one of the most important co-creators of a film, while giving an opportunity to young artists to introduce themselves and their work. Hungarian cinematography has become world-famous in the past 50 years, and the new generations follow and renew the traditions.
There is a competition programme open for university students or recently graduated young filmmakers from any Central-European educational institution which offers studies in cinematography and film. The submitted films will be selected by an international jury.
Apart from the main programme and the retrospective screenings there will be further events including workshops for professionals, open lectures given by members of HSC and ASC, Q&A’s with artists and film critics, discussions about education in film and cinematography, exhibitions and concerts.
