Dear Colleagues from the Press,

The opening ceremony of the 15th Jameson CineFest International Film Festival of Miskolc (14-23 September, 2018) is organized on the 14th of September at 5 pm at the Festival Center (House of Arts). The closing and award ceremony is held at the same venue on the 22nd of September 5 pm.

As usual, in the feature competition program the most outstanding works of the year are screened. The Open Eye section provides an opportunity to watch the great festival hits, the works of the grand auteurs. All screenings in the official program are Hungarian premieres.

Several joint programs are organized as well: the 7th International Film Market of Miskolc, Meeting of Partner Festivals, conferences, discussions to name just a few.

The film history program, under the patronage of István Szabó, pays tribute to the legendary Polish filmmaker, Krzysztof Zanussi, with the screening of three films: the Golden Lion-winner A Year of the Quiet Sun, The Constant Factor and The Camouflage are probably more actual than ever. Zanussi also offers a master class in Miskolc. Three of the most popular Hungarian classics are also included in the program: Sound Eroticism, Moziklip and Dollybirds directed by Péter Tímár. The director will be present at the CineFest to meet the audience.

The In Focus series introduces China this year.
