Hungarian Cinema In The Spotlight At The Spanish MUCE Film Festival
Hungarian cinema will be at the center of the Spanish film festival MUCE (Muestra de Cine Europeo Ciudad de Segovia, City of Segovia Festival of European Cinema). The program of the one-week-long festival, which begins on 14 November, was presented in the Hungarian Embassy in Madrid.

The Ministry of Human Resources welcomes the fact that the MUCE festival provides the opportunity for people to learn about Hungarian cinema, and wishes success for the Hungarian films presented during the program.

This year during the 7th MUCE festival, 96 films from 31 countries will be presented. Each year, the festival concentrates on the movies of one European country, this time on the films of Hungary. Besides the four Hungarian movies taking part in different sections of the film festival, 8 feature films from the history of Hungarian cinema will also be screened (among others, the works of Kornél Mundruczó, László Krasznahorkai, István Szabó and Miklós Jancsó). Parallel with the film festival, a conference will be held on the state of contemporary Hungarian cinema.

In addition, within the framework of the MUCE festival, the European Parliament will present the LUX Award to one film that deals with the subject of the universality of human rights or the cultural diversity of Europe. 10 films were nominated for the LUX Award, of which Bence Fliegauf’s Just the Wind has already got into the best three, and has a good chance of winning the award.
