9th Jameson Cinefest International Film Festival, 2012

Everybody in Our Family
FIPRESCI Prize: "Everybody in Our Family" (Radu Jude)

Sixteen first and second feature films (all Hungarian premieres), 22 shorts, 11 documentaries, 20 animated movies in competition, eight full-length features (including films by Oliver Stone and Agnieszka Holland, who received this year's lifetime achievement award), the latest works of Philip Kaufman and Ulrich Seidl, exhibitions, workshops, conferences and professional meetings: all these made up the 9th Miskolc International Film Festival, which ended on September 23. This was the first time that a FIPRESCI jury was part of Jameson Cinefest (JCF), which has indisputably become the leading international film festival in Hungary. "The festival of young filmmakers" looked back to the rich cinematic heritage of the region: the participants visited Adolph Zukor's birthplace in the nearby village Ricse and inaugurated a memorial plaque of the founder of Paramount Pictures to honour the studio's 100th anniversary. "You Must Remember This" was the title of a conference on Casablanca and its Hungarian-born director Michael Curtiz (Kertész Mihály) to honour the 70th anniversary of the legendary movie and the 50th anniversary of Kertész's death in Hollywood. From the feature competition program, the FIPRESCI prize went to the film Everybody in Our Family (Toata Lumea din Familia Nostra), directed by Radu Jude. (György Báron)

A Thousand Herrings. The Miskolc CineFest is devoted exclusively to debuts and the second films, and this regulation permits critics and spectators to make allowances for a lack of professionalism and maturity of artistic thought — a very strange indulgence. Alexey Gusev's report. arrow.
