The Hungarian film festival in London starts on Thursday 25th June.
Check the Gate, the second Hungarian film festival in London, will take place from 25th to 30th June 2009. Organised by the Hungarian Cultural Center in London and hosted at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, it will focus on Hungarian films before and after 1989.
Not only will the films selected introduce the audience to various genres, but they will also give a good understanding of the evolution of the country from WWII through to the cold war and post-communism. Some movies will also present lighter subjects such as love stories and street culture.
This festival is a great opportunity for Londoners to discover Hungary which is not often under the spotlight.
The programme and tickets for the viewings are available online on the ICA website: http://www.ica.org.uk/Check%20the%20Gate+20079.twl
