Welcome to INTERFILM, the International Interchurch Film Organisation. INTERFILM links cinema and church, cultures and religions. INTERFILM is looking beyond the screen.

Founded in 2004, the festival since its beginnings has been directed by Tibor Biró. It has developed into one of the most important festivals in Hungary. Since 2011, the festival has been accompanied by an ecumenical jury.


Every September, the CineFest Miskolc International Film Festival opens its cinemas to professionals and audiences to show the most significant and critically acclaimed films. It seems like a small, family film festival, but CineFest has become the most important international film festival in Hungary.
The awards ceremony of the 79th Venice Festival ended with a surprise. The Golden Lion went to the documentary "All the Beauty and the Bloodshed" by Laura Poitras.
What was striking this year in Venice was the abundance of family stories telling of separated and remarried couples, of the relationship between parents and children, of tragic strokes of fate, of loss and grief.
