The moment the atmospheric and sensual music and the visual side are combined with the use of film elements, an artistically valuable music video can be created. Our goal is to create a place where Budapest culture will connect with the music industry, where we will present the best music videos.

An international independent jury works at the festival, composed of judges from the ๐‘ช๐’›๐’†๐’„๐’‰ ๐‘น๐’†๐’‘๐’–๐’ƒ๐’๐’Š๐’„, ๐‘บ๐’๐’๐’—๐’‚๐’Œ๐’Š๐’‚, ๐‘ญ๐’“๐’‚๐’๐’„๐’†, ๐‘บ๐’‘๐’‚๐’Š๐’, ๐‘ฑ๐’‚๐’‘๐’‚๐’, ๐‘ด๐’†๐’™๐’Š๐’„๐’ ๐’‚๐’๐’… ๐‘ผ๐‘บ๐‘จ.

Spike Jonze, Gore Verbinski, and many other amazing directors even got their start in music videos. We want to find the next great creator, the next great musician, and the next great music video.

Combining image with music creates the long-awaited "integral cinema" that adds another dimension and power to visual messages. At the same time, it gives the second life music itself, which allows us to visualize images inspired by melodies, which are often lost in the subconscious.

As one of the youngest genres in the film industry, it is a video clip, an audiovisual work whose sound component is the whole or substantially a record of the artistic performance of a musical work.

We project the best super short film, short film and feature film and you can visit the city Budapest and get to know our culture. Budapest is a beautiful city with a wonderful culture and amazing nightlife.
