On 6th April at 7pm in Puskin the audience can watch a city-horror, entitled Citadel in which a man has been suffering from agoraphobia since his wife was fatally attacked by twisted feral children. After the film Ciarán Foy, the Irish director of the film answers the quesuions of the viewers.

This exciting thriller is based upon the acclaimed novel of Brian Harper. The guest of the screening is the director of the film, Julian Richards from Wales.

On A-38 ship there will be two screenings and Q&As – on 6th and 8th April at 7.30pm - with the British director of The Beat Is the Law: Fanfare for the Common People. Eve Wood’s documentary is a history of the amazing Sheffield music scene, from early 80’s post-punk through the house boom and into Britpop. The film culminates with Pulp’s triumph at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival, where as last minute replacement headliners, the band delivered the era-defining song Common People.

On 7th April at 7pm in Toldi one can watch Shopping Tour in the presence of the Russian director, Mikhail Brashinsky. In this unique piece a group of Russian tourists go on a shopping tour to the neighboring Finland – only to be attacked by the Finnish cannibals. Mr. Brashinsky had worked as a train conductor en route to Siberia and a waiter in a Turkish restaurant, a DJj on Bourbon Street in New Orleans and a film instructor at several New York universities, so he has a lot to tell to the Hungarian audience. At the same time at Urania Slovakian director from Prague, Mira Fornay will present her subtle film. My Dog Killer is about racists and ethnic conflicts in contemporary Europe and partly about wrong choices that, once made, cannot be altered. It is also about chances that appear, only to be missed.
