11th International Film Festival Miskolc

Jameson CineFest
12.09.2014 to 21.09.2014

In 2004 in Miskolc, an industrial city in northern Hungary, the Jameson Cinefest was organised for the first time. It offers 15-20 feature films in the international competition, and shorts, documentary and animation films in additional sections. It is headed by Tibor Biró who suggested to build an Ecumenical Jury which attends the festival since 2011. This year, the jury awarded its Prize to "Bande de filles", a French film directed by Cécile Sciamma.

Prize of the Ecumenical Jury

Directed by:
The film shows a strong young woman staying hopeful in an otherwise hopeless situation. Even though her circumstances such as poverty and living in a violent environment force her to make poor decisions, she stays true to herself and never loses the sense of what is right and what is wrong. She overcomes her personal struggles to find her place in life. 
This film also shows the problems of many minorities around the world and supports the process of liberation.
