About Zsigmond Vilmos Film Festival:
Szeged is the hometown of world famous, Oscar laureate Zsigmond Vilmos, honorary citizen of the town. Built almost a hundred years ago, marvelous Belvarosi Mozi in Szeged is one of the oldest traditional cinema theaters in Hungary. The largest screening hall with five hundred seats, in 2005 was named after Zsigmond Vilmos, which made him very proud. He never missed visiting “his cinema” every time he was in Szeged.
Apart from personal connections, our Film Festival is inspired by the significance of Zsigmond Vilmos for the film art, by his honor and reputation. Quality of his work and his influence on younger generations have the same goals as the Festival – to pay attention to important film co-worker, cinematographer.
“The name of the Festival clearly shows that we look at film art from the cinematographer’s perspective. However, we have learned an important lesson from Vilmos – vision and cinematographer’s work cannot be evaluated separately from other film elements. His work is the best example of this. Realization of cinematographer’s ideas must be in correlation with the director’s intentions and the massage of the film itself. This means that we award not only cinematographers but films as a whole.”
Szabó Gábor HSC, Jury President
