Three international film festivals awarded Hungarian Films last weekend. Péter Gárdos, László Nemes, Gábor Herendi, Karchi Perlmann - the authors of the Hungarian movies have been praised in Galicia's Ourense, in Brno and Cluj-Napoca.
Péter Gárdos was in Spain Saturday night to receive the Special Mention of the jury of the 14th International Film Festival of Ourense for his latest feature film Prank. "Due to the special direction of non professional actors, both adults and specially children and teenagers, in this moving story in which two different ways of understanding education and learning in very closed political and religious societies are confronted. This confrontation, the one of good versus evil, is as actual now as almost a century ago." – assumed the jury in Ourense.
After numerous international festivals and awards, László Nemes' 13 minutes short, With a Little Patience has been given this time the Bronze Medal Award in Brno, second most populous city of the Czech Republic.
