The international jury will give award the best art film and the best 'entertainment' film at the annual showcase of recent Hungarian cinematography.

Foreign critics will pick the winner of the Gene Moskowitz Award, which will be presented with the other awards at the closing ceremony Feb 6.
This year's installment opens with Noah's Ark from director Pal Sandor, one of 17 features in competition. Altogether 95 movies will screen in the competition programs and 220 films will be shown out of competition.
This year's event is dedicated to the memory of Hungarian filmmaker Zoltan Fabri.
