The Faludi Ferenc Academy announces its 21st thematic international youth film festival and the related photo competition.
Competitors are invited to process the theme “The Other” in the form of a film or photo in accordance with the conditions of the festival. We are looking for professionally demanding elaborated works that are suitable for creating a forum, in the language of pictures, for a dialogue between different viewpoints and opinions.
Film Festival and Photo Exhibition
The films will be evaluated by a professional jury. The works selected by the pre-jury for competition will be presented at open screenings in the presence of the creators, the audience and the jury. The jury gives prizes (1st, 2nd, and 3rd) in three categories: short feature film, experimental film and documentary, and offers special prizes as well. The jury will evaluate the works of film university students in a separate category.
The best of the photos based on the decision of the pre-jury will be exhibited. The prizes will be handed over at the prize-giving ceremony of the film festival.
