Titanic Budapest International Film Festival

Several of our Sister Cities host film festivals, and I’ll be trying to keep you up to date on activities, films, winners, directors, actors and all things surrounding the festivals.

First up is the Titanic Budapest International Film Festival. The 14th edition of this festival runs April 12-27, 2007. You can check out the festival at their web site:

Language barriers are always a little tough, but the site has some info in English.

In 2006, Titanic had 15,000 spectators and hosted films from 31 countries.

The inaugural Breaking Waves Award was presented last year to the film 4, which is based on a Russian novel. The Audience Award was presented to the American film Me and You and Everyone We Know – which is a really fantastic film. Both 4 and Me and You are available on DVD. You can watch a trailer for 4 at and Me and You at

As I learn more about the 2007 Titanic festival, I’ll update you.
