MOM AND OTHER LOONIES IN THE FAMILY (Hu/De/Bg/Dk) (Anyám és más futóbolondok a családból)
Directed by Ibolya Fekete
Script: Ibolya Fekete
A zany tale of a family in the 20th century. Four generations of “fools”, with Mother in the focus, who lived 94 years and moved 27 times in her life. Moving was her only means of dealing with trouble, danger or conflicts. In fact, it was History that chased her on, all over the country and throughout the horrible century. At the demented age of 94, Mother tells the story to her daughter: A playful, heart-warming and occasionally heartbreaking span of a hundred years.
Mother at 94 is played by the wonderful Polish actress, Danuta Szaflarska, co-starring iconoclast Hungarian actress Juli Básti.
Produced by Cinema-Film / Gábor Garami (Hu), NiKo Film / Nicole Gerhards (De), KaBoAl Pictures / Kalin Kalinov (Bg), Toolbox Film / Signe Leick Jensen (Dk)
Shooting: 4-season shooting begins next spring
Awarded production support: 190m HUF

COMING OUT (Hu)
Directed by Dénes Orosz
Script: Dénes Orosz
What do you do when you find you’re not the man you thought you were?
This is the story of present-day Hungary’s most famous gay celebrity who openly admits his homosexuality and fights for gay rights in a society where so many alternative values are denied. But then something happens and he is shocked to discover his growing interest in the female of the species. Coming Out is a daring romantic comedy that examines the question of otherness in a unique way.
