Seven Hills Film Festival

18 to 24 September 2017


One of the key elements of the revitalisation of the film festival is the initiation of an event, where the works of Hungarian and cross-border professional and amateur film-makers can compete.
Our aim is to present the lasting cultural values of the Hungarian film making industry to the audience and to organise public meetings, a contest for the producers, discussion forums, and evaluation meetings with the jury members. The best films and their makers will be awarded with prizes at the festival. The organising committee will not intervene in the work of the jury.

The patron of the event: Dr. Péter Hoppál Secretary of State for Culture

The visit to the festival is free.

Date of nomination: 31 May 2017

The Jury - Seven Hills Film Festival I:

Chairman of the Jury: Sándor Sára (Director & Cinematographer))
