The ROMA-PICTURE program is organized at the 13th Jameson CineFest Miskolc International Film Festival for the 11th time now. This year we screen a film made at the University of Miskolc, Institute of Cultural and Visual Anthropology. The film “Lomtalanság” focuses on an annual event in Hungary at which people clear out their homes and put everything they do not want any more on the streets. From the film we learn about those who wait eagerly for the unwanted objects for reasons typically unknown for the rest of the society. Who are these people? Are our stereotypes true or false? The film is directed by Szilvia Bognár.

The professional supervision of the ROMA-PICTURE program is carried out by the Institute of Cultural and Visual Anthropology at the University of Miskolc.

The film is followed by discussion with the filmmaker.

The Jameson CineFest Miskolc International Film Festival hosted several film workshops in the last couple years.Just like in 2015, the North Hungarian Regional Film Fund – Miskolc Foundation organized a film workshop this year under the title “Miskolc-Our home”.The program strengthens the relationship between the CineFest and the University of Miskolc, Institute of Cultural and Visual Anthropology.In 2016 the topics of the workshop are the past, the traditions and the presents of the religious and ethnic minorities of Miskolc. The workshop aims to make three documentary shorts on the Roma, Polish and Jewish minority of Miskolc.The program supports equal opportunity, strengthens tolerance and aims to reduce tensions. It also helps the younger generation learn about traditions.


FIPRESCI JCF Talent Campus


The Jameson CineFest has a long going cooperation with the FIPRESCI (the International Federation of Film Critics). Since 2011 the federation has delegated a jury to the Festival. This co-operation is strengthened further by, taking after the top festivals of Berlin and Warsaw,  organizing a Talent Campus. The Talent Campus is for young (under 30) critics living in the region. During the workshop the participants have an opportunity to improve their skills, professional background and learn about the know-how of being a successful film critic – here or abroad.

Ecumenical Roundtable Discussion


September 14. 2016, Wednesday

Béke Screen


For decades the best film festivals of the word have juries with Catholic, Protestant, and Evangelical members. The members of these “ecumenical” juries are delegated by SIGNIS (Word Catholic Association for Communication) and INTERFILM (the international network of film organizations of the Christian churches). It was in September, 2011 when an International Ecumenical Jury has been first formed at the Jameson CineFest – first time ever in Hungary.

This year a roundtable discussion is organized on the work and views of the ecumenical jury with the participation of jury members and experts.

The Festival screens two films that have been awarded by the ecumenical jury at former international film festivals.One is Xavier Dolan`s It's Only the End of the World (winner of the 2016 Cannes ecumenical award) and the other is Károly Makk`s legendary Love (Szerelem), premiered in Cannes in 1971 (OCIC award - International Catholic Organization for Cinema and Audiovisual - and Prix du Jury).
