2020 has been a challenging, yet exciting year for CINEMIRA International Children’s Film Festival. Because our team is dedicated to bring the best and latest children’s films to our audience, we sought out many alternative routes this year. While the festival itself was a great success in October, we expanded with many new features! These were our favorite moments from CINEMIRA 2020.
CINEMIRA organized three Pop-Up screenings and workshops during the summer and early autumn, including one at the Friss Hus Budapest International Short Film Festival.
Tales to the Screen! Hungarian Writers + Filmmakers Meeting – The Professional Programs of CINEMIRA 2020 took place in September at Moholy-Nagy Fine Arts University Budapest.
