We believe it is important to preserve the values of Hungarian culture; to keep the traditions of Hungarian film art alive, and to look for new ways worthy of them.
We want to be parties to, and shapers of international film art.
We believe it is important to respect the universal human values: freedom of thought and of art, belief in development, respect of traditions, solidarity with those in need, fraternity, equal opportunities, humanity.
Universal and Hungarian film history proves that the essential task of film art is to sensitively reflect on social problems. This is what we represent as artists; the HCA, however, is a politically independent organisation.
We believe in art being indispensable. We are aware of the power of the film image, which we want to use responsibly and with humility for the content represented by the film.
