A week full of Estonian cultural events is taking place from 14-26 March in three Hungarian cities – Budapest, Debrecen and Szeged.
For the tenth time already, the Estonian Institute brings the latest highlights in the country’s cultural scene to Hungary. For those unaware, the two countries share linguistic connection – Hungarian is a member of the Uralic language family and is distantly related to Estonian as well as Finnish. Hence, the historical and cultural contacts between Estonia and Hungary go way back.
Film programme the most popular
Over the years, the film programme has proven to be the most popular part of the Estonian week in Hungary. This year, four recent feature films will be screened in Budapest, Debrecen and Szeged: “The Days That Confused”, “Pretenders”, “The Polar Boy” and “The Spy and the Poet”. A selection of new Estonian animated films as well as Ülo Pikkov’s film programme will also be shown.
