The Board took notice of the report on the progress of the development of the new financial software, as well as the results of the CISAC investigation that found the activity of FILMJUS correct and only made a few recommendations on minor changes, which basically aimed to provide broader and more detailed information to right holders.

12 January 2015
According to the amendment of the Copyright Act which entered into force on 1 January 2012, collecting societies can not engage in direct support for cultural purposes, it is only possible through the Directorate of the National Cultural Fund (NCF), with transferring the amount dedicated to this, indirectly. In accordance with the agreement between FILMJUS an and NCF born on this matter, NCF has agreed to provide support through their own tendering system of to professional film organizations to purposes corresponding with the Support Policy of FILMJUS, while FILMJUS transferred 29.6 million HUF to NKA in 2012. (The contract concluded with NCF in this case, the Support Policy of FILMJUS and the documents generated in the case can be found on the website of FILMJUS.)
On the other hand, the College created for announcing and considering tenders - until its abolition in November 2013 - did not announce any professional film tenders.
Following this, FILMJUS requested NCF to remit the transferred amount, which it categorically rejected.
FILMJUS then took the conflict to a litigious way, in which at the end of year 2014, a not yet final verdict was born on the first instance.
According to this, NCF is obliged to repay the amount transferred to FILMJUS with its interests, as well as the Court ordered them to pay for the costs of litigation as well.
As far as we know, NCF appealed against the judgment.

The competent minister has approved the Tariffs of FILMJUS for the year 2015.

The Board of FILMJUS amended its Distribution Rules on 9 December 2014. The revised document and its appendices can be found on the website. Two members of the FILMJUS management, Zsuzsa Böszörményi and Iván Bánki resigned from their positions, because according to the new Civil Code it is incompatible for the same persons to be the senior officer of the Association and the Foundation founded by the Association at the same time.
They both decided to keep their curator memberships in the Filmjus Foundation. The Board thanked them for their - enduring and successful - activities and elected two new members of the Leadership of FILMJUS in the person of László Babiczky and Ádám Horváth. We wish both of them success in their work.

His memory is preserved.
