Invitation to the Cinematography programmes of the 2017 Festival

It is already a tradition that between 26 and 28 May, during the International Nature Film Festival in Gödöllő we offer a two-day professionals’ event for filmmakers. Our goal is that our guests from the Friday programmes and the lecturers from the Saturday workshops could share as much information as possible based on their professional background and experiences, providing Hungarian artist with valuable knowledge and networking contacts.

Our topic in 2017: Films about the natural and cultural values from the Carpathian Basin
