New Hungarian Film programme at the 29th European Film Festival Palić

As part of the 29th European Film Festival Palić, which takes place from 16 to 22 July in Palić and Subotica, New Hungarian Film section presents six productions: "Blue Fox" by József Pacskovszky, "Eviction" by Máté Fazekas, "Mercy" by Károly Eperjes, "Skylark" by Béla Paczolay, "Soulpark" by Róbert Odegnál and Illés Horváth, and "Things Worth Weeping For" by Cristina Grosan.

The films in this section are on the repertoire from July 17 to 22, at 7 p.m. at the Eurocinema. As in previous years, Palić European Film Festival realizes this program in cooperation with the National Film Institute of Hungary (Nemzeti Filmintezet).

The plot of the "Blue Fox" by József Pacskovszky follows a handsome jazz club owner who visits his old friend, happily married to his beautiful wife. The woman eagerly prepares for the arrival of the man, but the meeting takes an unexpected turn: she is accused of infidelity. With the evidence, he prepares to destroy the marriage of two old friends. However, not only his friends' lives will radically change, but his own as well.

Film "Eviction" by Máté Fazekas focuses on a young court bailiff’s first eviction case that turns into a nightmare because of a desperate old lady who is willing to sacrifice everything to keep her home.

"Mercy" by Károly Eperjes is a historical thriller drama set in Hungary in 1950 showing the struggle between the communist state and the church, through a personal battle between a priest, Father Leopold, imprisoned by the State Protection Authority, and his interrogator, the young Lieutenant Keller.

The main character of the film "Skylark" by Béla Paczolay is Pacsirta (Sheva), a woman who is condemned to be a squatter. When she leaves for a week, her absence sparks an unexpected release and happiness for her parents, who can no longer ignore the tragedy that makes up their lives. At the Los Angeles Film Awards, this production received the Award for The Best Drama.

In the "Soulpark" by Róbert Odegnál and Illés Horváth, a bizarre event takes place in the zoo - a man woke up completely naked among crocodiles. He does not remember how he got there, nor does he remember the previous three years of his life. This odd case is assigned to a young female detective and her retired alcoholic colleague. All clues lead to a mysterious sect whose motto is: Consciousness is suffering. At the Fantasporto festival, "Soulpark" won the International Fantasy Film Award.

Film "Things Worth Weeping For" by Cristina Grosan is about people in their 30s who try to meet serious grown-up expectations when their lives do not actually have much in common with typical adulthood. This controversial state that is full of conflict, tension, self-righteousness and absurd situations is what the film intends to explore. The actress Nóra Rainer-Micsinyei, for her role in this film, received the Award for The Best Female Role at last year's Bosphorus Film Festival as part of the international competition program.

This year's edition of the festival, organized by the Open University Subotica, takes place in several locations, including the unique Summer Stage in Palić, as well as the Eurocinema, Abazija and Lifka cinemas. During the pre-festival program and the central part of the event, the audience will be presented with more than 130 films from all over the Europe, in 15 different sections and program units. Most of the films have their Serbian and regional premiere here at Palić. In addition to the rich film program, the audience will be able to enjoy a number of dynamic accompanying contents - concerts, exhibitions, promotions, workshops and master classes.

European Film Festival Palić was supported by the Serbian Ministry of Culture, Provincial Secretariat for Culture, Public Information and Relations with Religious Communities, the City of Subotica, the European Union through the Creative Europe MEDIA program, as well as numerous partners and media partners.

For more than 20 years sponsor - friend of the European Film Festival Palić is Gorki List, as an unavoidable part of our artistic scenography, but also a partner that encourages the engagement of the audience to explore the experiences of presented films through the Gorki List Audience Award. This year, the traditional cooperation will be extended to the music part of the Festival program.
