Hungary’s official foreign-language Oscar submission The Notebook will open the 13th Hungarian Film Festival Of Los Angeles, set to run from November 15-21.

Event organisers will also recognise Joe Eszterhas with the lifetime achievement award.

The son of Bela Lugosi will collect the Founders Award on behalf of the celebrated early 20th century actor who famously portrayed Dracula. The festival screens White Zombie in his honour.

Screenings include Krisztina Deak’s Aglaja, the Hungarian submission for Golden Globes consideration, as well as The Two Of Us supported by director Barbara Kulcsa.
