In 2016 we created a new competition program called CineNewWave for young Hungarian filmmakers who can apply with short and animation films. The aim of the program is to introduce young Hungarian talents to the film lovers of the festival. Since the beginning, JCF’s mission has been to find new voices and discover the great promises of the future. We love to explore, thus this year we will focus on this passion of ours even more! The winner of the CineNewWave competition program
receives 1,000,000 HUF offered by the National Media and Infocommunications Authority and gets the chance to participate as a judge the next year. The selected entries are screened at the Jameson CineFest in the presence of the filmmakers. Last year Balázs Dudás took home the prize with his film Welcome, and this time you’ll meet him in the judging panel. Come to Miskolc and watch the best Hungarian short films of the year!
