The Jews settled in Miskolc at the second half of the 16th century. The film aims to show what the Jewish people gave to Miskolc, how they shaped the city, what role they played in the embourgeoisement. They took part in craft making, trade, culture and also in the industry. They are the ones to be thanked for the hospital as well.

How did they coop with the Holocaust and how do Orthodox Jews live today in Miskolc, although only in reduced numbers. That is what the historian talks about, the survivors remember of. The film has some archive footage as well. Will the religion revive? Jewish fate in a city, situated 200 kilometers from Budapest. That’s what the film shows us.



New competition program for Hungarian filmmakers. The aim of the program is to introduce the young Hungarian talents to the Festival’s audience. Since the first Jameson CineFest we had a mission to search for new voices in the film industry with who we can keep in touch and follow their path. We love to discover and we put a great emphasis on it this year. We have not been as strict with our entry regulations n this program as with the other competition programs. If we loved the film, it made it to the program whether or not being Hungarian premiere. Come and watch the best new Hungarian shorts!
