FESTIVALS: The Hungarian Film Festival announces the 2022 program
The films will be screened in three cities: Veszprém, Balatonfüred and Balatonalmádi. In the case of 20 films, this will be the first screening in Hungary.
The program was divided into sections: previews, feature films, television films, long documentaries, short films, animated films, classic films, short documentaries and series.
The main attractions are the three movie premieres. The twisted spy movie The Game / A játszma by Péter Fazakas, who will open the festival, is the sequel to The review / A vizsga (2011) and is set in Budapest in the 1960s. The game was produced by Film Positive.
The romantic comedy Hello my life ! / Szia, Eletem! by Gábor Rohonyi and Csaba Vékes will also have its world premiere in Veszprém. It was produced by FilmSquad in co-production with Grund and Blue Duck Arts.
Musical documentary by director Gábor Zsigmond Papp Bereményi hat / Bereményi kalapja will also make its debut at the festival. The film about the influential work of the writer, director and songwriter Géza Bereményi was produced by Filmworks.
“The multitude and diversity of films selected for the festival show that the Hungarian film industry is in great shape,” Hungarian film commissioner Csaba Káel said in a statement.
The Hungarian Film Festival awaits the public again this year with open-air screenings, restored film classics, Q&As, programs for children and young people, exhibitions, concerts and culinary programs.
The festival also commemorates two legendary Hungarian actors, Sándor Pécsi, born 100 years ago, and Pál Jávor, born 120 years ago.
