Welcome to the Budapest Independent Film Festival, established in 2019 and organized by HF Productions.
The festival’s aim is to provide a platform for filmmakers who don’t necessarily have a large budget, but a vision and an important story to tell. Through our careful selection process our goal is to showcase a wide variety of genres and styles to cinema fans and fellow international filmmakers.
After some difficult months, the previsouly postponed 2021 & 2022 editions took place in Kino Cafe Mozi in May 2022!
In this double edition, we showcased a selection of 24 outsanding films from well-crafted animation, to surreal dramas, light documentaries and odd comedies; films that can make you reflect, feel and connect.
The festival lasted two days: May 13 and 14 and each day was dedicated to one edition. Both days opened with the screening selection and closed with the award ceremony.
