A German weekend in Budapest
This week-end, German Films organises the first German film festival ever held in the Hungarian capital.
The event starts today at the great Urania theatre, opened by Die weiße Massai, an outstanding success at the German box-office which will be screened in presence of the director, Hermine Huntgeburth, and the actor Jacky Ido.
Besides the short film selection 'Next Generation 2005', the festival will present four other features: Shadows of Time [+see also:

'Looking for and finding love') by Helmut Dietl, Schiller by Martin Weinhart (who will be there to meet the Magyar public) and Es ist ein Elch entsprungen by Ben Verbong, who is currently preparing a film on Anne Franck.
In the past few years, Hungary has proved very fond of German cinema. This festival is a fantastic opportunity to catch the attention of Hungarian buyers (distributors and broadcasters) and of the local public.
