Hungarian cinema

THE MAIDEN DANCED TO DEATH (2011) at Fantasporto!

Hungarian cinema comes to Porto during Fantasporto 2012 in Endre Hules' film, THE MAIDEN DANCED TO DEATH (2011). The film is about two brothers during Communist Hungary who were great dancers and once upon a time danced together. But while one brother kept dancing, the other gave it up. Now they meet twenty years later to dance together again. I interviewed Endre Hules a year ago before the film was finished. And now here in Fantasporto I will finally s...

Berlinale Special 2012: Series of Talks at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele

 For years, discussions with filmmakers directly after the screenings of their films have been a special attraction of the festival experience for many Berlinale visitors.

Hungarian Film Festival of Los Angeles

“The Hungarian Film Festival is without a doubt the best ethnic film festival in Los Angeles. It is well programmed and well
produced. I can not think of a better way in which to promote Hungarian cinema in Hollywood.”
GREGORY LAMMLE ...Lammle Theaters

“The opportunity for film enthusiasts to see Hungarian films, exchange ideas and generate relationships in the entertainment
community are just the beginning of the positive benefits that stem from the Hungarian Film Festival. This festival
provides an opportunity for Hungarian filmmakers to voice their passion for storytelling through the beauty of film. “An American
Rhapsody”, a film by Hungarian Eva Gardos, was the International Grand Prize winner of the Hartley-Merrill Screenwriting
Competition, but it was the Hungarian Film Festival that allowed Eva to share her voice with the rest of the world.”

“The festival has made it possible to meet and converse with Hungarian directors, writers and actors and be
exposed to films we would ordinarily not see. Hollywood can be quite insular. We need the Hungarian Film
Festival to enrich our cultural scene.”
IRVIN KERSHNER … Film Director/Producer

In loving memory
“Congratulations Bela on your Fourth Annual Hungarian Film Festival in Los Angeles. You’re the best Hungarian
Ambassador for introducing Hungarian Film-makers & their films to Hollywood. All the best.

“The Hungarian Film Festival in Los Angeles has been a very important event. I’m thanking Bela Bunyik (Bunyik Entertainment)
for there excellent presentation and to
keep reminding the public that the Hungarians are still among the Best Movie makers in the world!”

“The Hungarian Film Festival never fails to delight. I look forward to seeing old friends and new emerging talent. The quality of
Hungarian film making
is of the highest order.”
CHARLES COHEN...Film Producer

“The Hungarian Film Festival presents to the Los Angeles community new and rare Hungarian films. I have been especially
enriched by meeting director colleagues, Karoly Makk and Janos Szasz. My praise to Bonnie and Bela Bunyik for their tireless
and wonderful work bringing the festival to us.
DAISY GERBER…. Film Director
