THE LATEST from Szolnok

344 films from 32 countries of the world were submitted to the Int l Film 
Festival of Fine Arts to be held in Szolnok, Hungary (16-21 September 
2004). The preview jury have to view 110 hours of films to select the ones 
to be screened in competition or in the informative section, which is about 
40-50 hours altogether.

During the film festival, once again a number of prominent professional 
events will take place as joint programmes. The conference TRANSEUROPA 
EXPRESS will be a 5-day event, for which the organizers have invited 
several well-known film schools from Cenral Europe. Based on the positive 
responses, it seems that we will have foreign conference guests from 
Slovenia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Austria and 
Germany. The conference will mostly focus on the opportunities open to 
European films and coproductions with a special emphasis on the countries 
that recently joined the EU. Having read the proposed programme of the 
conference, the high representatives of FIPRESCI informed us that they 
would also organize a colloque in Szolnok for their members like they did 2 
years ago. Among others we count on representatives of the Ministry of 
National Cultural Heritage, the chair of Media Desk in Hungary as well as 
the Association of Hungarian Producers to make their contribution to the 

Meanwhile we came across an interesting contact from England. The 
Halwhistle Film Project wrote to us that they intend to participate in the 
EU s Leader+ programme and they look for partners in rural areas to process 
the problems and situations affecting them within a joint film project. 
Since they find the friendly atmosphere of a small-town festival adequate 
to make new contacts, they intend to come and attend the festival, and 
start organizing their international project here in Hungary.
