V4 Film Series: March 25 - April 15

The Embassies of Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Slovakia present the 3rd annual V4 film series from March 25-April 15, 2014.

It is our great pleasure to present the V4 Embassy Film Festival, which is now in its third year. This year's theme is Societies in Motion. The selected films showcased in the series portray the rapid social changes in these Central European countries following the fall of the Iron Curtain and how these countries deal with the ghosts of their communist past. The films reflect on liberty, love, heroes, secrets, high hopes, illusions and delusions. Each screening begins with a short introduction by an Embassy representative who will explain key cultural and historical elements of the film. A reception follows the screenings.

Visegrad Four (V4): The The Visegrad Group, also known as the Visegrad Four or simply V4, is a group of four Central European countries - Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia - created in 1991. These countries have always been part of a single civilization that shares cultural and intellectual values and common roots, which they wish to preserve and further strengthen. The group's activities aim at fostering stability in the region, presenting common ideas at various international fora, and encouraging optimum cooperation with each other as well as with other countries. Hungary currently holds the rotating presidency of the V4.
