The financial support means that CineFest ( http://www.cinefest.hu) will screen mainly European productions as a condition of the funding.

The festival has grown annually in size and prestige, and several cult-films have started here their Hungarian carreer there.

The festival is also supported by the International Visegrad Fund (http://www.visegradfund.org/), and the organizers have signed an exclusive sponsoring agreement with the Irish company, Jameson.

CineFest will be held September 10-19. Organizers say the feature competition will be stronger than last year. Some 500 films have been entered in the animation, short fiction and documentary sections.
