10-12 SEPTEMBER 2021.
The World of Sir David Attenborough in Gödöllő
As a tribute to the work of the world-famous naturalist and documentary filmmaker, who turns 95 this year, this year's screening programme is named after him. It is an honour for the Festival that from 2016 onwards, every year a film has been nominated that was either narrated by him or with his narration.
Two of his films - dubbed in Hungarian - will be screened several times this year:
Attenborough - A Wild Life
The Wonderful World of Attenborough
In addition to the competition, the films about his life will be shown to the Festival audience with the support of Spektrum TV.
This year, we will have two special screening locations:
- The LED-wall in the Alsópark where matinee films for children will be shown in the morning, followed by the best nature films from 16.00 to 22.00
- Gödöllő Royal Castle and its section rooms where you can watch the best Hungarian and international films
11 September from 17.30 to 19.30: Festival Gala - Royal Castle Riding Hall
All artists and interested visitors are welcome to the event.
ALL EVENTS OF THE FESTIVAL ARE FREE OF CHARGE
The International Film Reviews have attracted nearly 2000 fantastic films from all over the world. The best films will be screened in Gödöllő between 10-12 September 2021,
