Event extras: 

Some of the films are selected by a jury just for the San Francisco festival and will be selected from those being shown at the Hungarian Film Festival in Los Angeles, which will run at the same time.

Lecturers include Reka Pigniczky, Steve Kovacs and Eva Homor.

This event is also a one-unit course taught by Pigniczky, journalist and documentary filmmaker; Kovacs, professor and chair of Cinema at SF State; and Homor, a film producer and co-founder and member of the board of directors of the Central European California Cultural Institute.

The California European Cultural Initiative, a San Francisco-based nongovernmental organization, organizes cultural exchange between the two regions, starting with a film festival and developing into a wide array of cultural events. The mission of the initiative, which was founded and run by three Hungarian-Americans, is to promote Hungarian and other Central European film, theatre and music events in California.
