The Hungarian Film Festival of Los Angeles has been a constant presence in bringing an array of diverse films, features, documentaries and shorts each year to a city that holds a unique place in the movie industry, a city renown for its film events.
This year, the Hungarian Film Festival of Los Angeles is celebrating the 100 birthday of the Hungarian Animation. We are presenting the diversity of the art of animation film making, children, adult, short and feature film length movies.
The Festival is an invitation to those who believe in the power of Hungarian cinema and its quest to be heard though their films, and has always been met with a great deal of enthusiasm and appreciation because of its ability to present unforgettable cinematic and artistic films through the years.
“The opportunity for film enthusiasts to see Hungarian films, exchange ideas and generate relationships in the entertainment community are just the beginning of the positive benefits that stem from the Hungarian Film Festival. This festival provides an opportunity for Hungarian filmmakers to voice their passion for storytelling through the beauty of film. “An American Rhapsody”, a film by Hungarian Eva Gardos, was the International Grand Prize winner of the Hartley-Merrill Screenwriting Competition, but it was the Hungarian Film Festival that allowed Eva to share her voice with the rest of the world.”

“The festival has made it possible to meet and converse with Hungarian directors, writers and actors and be exposed to films we would ordinarily not see. Hollywood can be quite insular. We need the Hungarian Film Festival to enrich our cultural scene.”
IRVIN KERSHNER … Film Director/Producer“The Hungarian Film Festival is without a doubt the best ethnic film festival in Los Angeles. It is well programmed and well produced. I can not think of a better way in which to promote Hungarian cinema in Hollywood.
