For strengthening the communication between people - through movies

The American Film Showcase, a joint project of the Budapest U.S. Embassy and Jameson CineFest presents great, award winning films for strenghtening the dialogue between different social groups. Through personal communication and with the screening of entertaining flicks we focus on chances and successes, different people's values and survival of dramas and triumphs.

Andrew Garrison's documentary film, Trashdance shows a choreographer's fight, while Katie Dellamaggiore's Brooklyn Tower presents chess players guys and their outbreak. Finally, Christopher Kenneally's documentary Side by Side gives an insight into the secrets of making movies, with Martin Scorsese, James Cameron, Danny Boyle, Lars von Trier, John Malkovich and Vilmos Zsigmond - the host is Keanu Reeves.
