Opening Night at San Francisco International Animation Festival

#
Last night's 'Glitch' was wonderful-the animation by Eric Leiser, and music by his brother Jeff, were both superb, and Jay Masonek gave a poignant and very expressive performance as himself! Truly was glad I made it to the opening night to see this stunner-the animation really was spectacular!

KINOKI International Student Film Festival

KINOKI is the International University Film Festival hosted by the Universidad Iberoamericana, one of the most important universities in México. It takes place each year during the third week of February through the Communication Department and the Film area. The Festival was born with the compromise to give voice to film students from the entire world, giving them the space to promote new cinematographic proposals. We want this films to be watched, to generate emotions, questions, reflections and dialogues. From February 15th to February 19th on 2010, KINOKI will celebrete its 6th edition and will exhibit the official selection of national and international university shortfilms, covering the categories of fiction, documentary, animation and experimental. Nevertheless, there are other events which take place during the festival such as movie premieres in the presence of the filmmakers, master classes with special guests, roundtables with great personalities of world cinema, and the art exposition 24 frames, that presents plastic masterpieces related to film. One of the most expected events is the Autocinema, projected in the Universidad Iberoamericana’s parking lot and transmitted live by the Ibero 90.9 radio station.

Jameson CineFest - Miskolc International Film Festival

The flourishing Jameson CineFest will celebrate its 8th edition in September 2011, housing in a new cultural complex House of Arts. Each year, after a careful pre-selection, the top 15-20 features and 40-50 shorts, documentaries and animation films have the opportunity to compete in the official program. Most of the films came from Central Europe, from the US and Germany, but we received films from Indonesia to South America. Jameson CineFest provides an unique look into young international cinema's landscape, screening the best flicks from all over the world.

Many attractive supplementary programs, exhibitions, concerts, film history workshops, roundtable discussions will accompany the nightly screenings. Our CineClassics series started in 2010: explore with us Hungary's exceptionally rich film heritage: Oscar winner British screenwriter Emeric Pressburger was born in Miskolc, legendary founder of Paramount PicturesAdolph Zukor in the nearby village Ricse, 20th Century-Fox founder William Fox in Tolcsva, in the heart of the renowned Tokaj wine region, just to name a few.  The 2009 conference dedicated to Emeric Pressburger (with the participation of his Oscar winner grandson Kevin Macdonald), and the 2010 workshop about Zoltan Korda was a true gem.

Jameson CineFest is one of the most attractive festivals of Central Europe, where our guests can get know the fresh cavalcade of world cinema, the hidden treasures of film history, fine food and drinks, concerts and parties - with true Hungarian hospitality.

See you in Miskolc in September 2011!
