Regional short film contest

This was a competition for Hungarofest Ltd. It is closed now.
 
The place where I live. The town where I grew up. The city where you always return. The city that I call my home.
 
We can adjust to the center of our community and the city in countless ways. With the digital technology gaining momentum in popularity, almost everyone can create their own movie. Movies became part of our lives, they can express our simplest or deepest feelings or thoughts, and they can connect different cultures.
 
Hungarofest Ltd., in cooperation with Daazo.com, the European Short Film Centre, invited entries for a competition for short films with duration of 3 minutes maximum. The City in My Mind project focuses on seven chosen cities, the film entries must be connected to the cities mentioned before, in a particular or an associative way.
