Film festival invites submissions
Young amateur and student filmmakers are invited by a Hungarian Jesuit academy to create films on the biblical theme of ‘trust’ and submit them to a film festival, which will be held in Budapest on 14-15 November 2008. This will be the thirteenth film festival organised by the Ferenc Faludi Academy, which aims to promote culture and education, especially among young people. According to the organisers, “The film festival is a great forum for this, especially because it has become international during the years”. This year, for the first time, they also invite the submission of photographs for the festival. The president of the festival jury this year is a prolific Italian film director, Pupi Avati. Application forms are available on the Academy’s site.
