At CINEMIRA TEEN International Youth Film Festival, we screen the world’s most outstanding youth short films and feature films for the 13+ age group, while the audience can participate in a number of film workshops and seminars.
October 14-15th, 2023.
CINEMIRA TEEN is the only film festival in Hungary specifically for teenagers. At this special event, young people can learn about the different cultures of the world through films, gain insight into the mysteries of filmmaking, meet the most outstanding contemporary filmmakers, stars of international series, and even try filmmaking. They can learn behind-the-scenes information about Stranger Things from Nimród Antal, who directed several episodes, and about Euforia from Dániel Császár, who worked on the set with cinematographer Rév Marcell.
The festival features hundreds of short films and animations from more than 80 countries for the young audience. The hourly screenings feature animated and live-action films for the 13+ age group.
On Fridays we organize screenings specifically for high school classes and students as part of Cinemira TEEN Student Film Day in H13 Kultport. On Saturday and Sunday, we welcome the general public at the festival with a colorful program and film selection at Corvin Cinema.
The short films cover topics that affect the everyday lives of teenagers, such as the first kiss, a farewell from high school friends, finding your way in life, anorexia, video game addiction, or gaining independence from the parents.
Our panorama program features the most outstanding international youth films that have been screened from the most prestigious film festivals in the world or have just won awards, such as Olga (Hungarian premiere), which won an award at Cannes and is about a Ukrainian gymnast during the revolution, Comedy Queen (Hungarian premiere), chosen as the best youth film at the Berlinale, and Nothing, based on the stirring Danish bestseller.
The festival also provides an insight into the behind-the-scenes of filmmaking, so young audiences can try their hand at film. Young people interested in film directing or acting can meet the creators of world-famous series, influencers, casting directors, music video directors, and last but not least, they can participate in a real casting during the entire duration of the festival.
