Hungarians will be offered a taste of the rich culture of China when the Chinese Culture Festival opens here on Oct. 13.

The public were given a preview of what will be on offer at a media briefing Friday to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

The festival will feature a variety of activities, including films, exhibitions and dance programs and will run until the end of the year.

A total of seven films will be screened by Oct. 1, namely Assembly, The Knot, The Potala Palace, Fearless, Old Fish, The Silent Holy Stones, and Long Song, offering the audience an insight into Chinese history in the 20th century.

During the festival, the China National Ethnic Song and Dance Ensemble will perform in Budapest and Kecskemet, the fourth-largest city in Hungary.

Works of Chinese artists will be displayed at the Museum of Agriculture in an exhibition called "Ink, Not Ink," in which the artists show a bold contemporary interpretation of the ancient art.

In addition, a conference will be held in Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest, with a view to analyzing the bilateral diplomatic relations in the past 60 years.

Gao Jian, China's ambassador to Hungary, told Friday's briefing all areas of the relationship between China and Hungary had improved over the past 60 years, adding the festival would act as a window through which Hungarian people will appreciate the beautiful scenery of Chinese civilization.

Hungarian state secretary for education and culture Csak Ference and Urania Cinema president Bakos Edit were also present at the briefing.
