Diverse cityscapes and cost-effective crew are drawing in Hollywood film-makers.
Budapest is an architectural paradise. Hosting an impressive blend of old and modern buildings and layouts. Budapest has the architectural flexibility to disguise itself as other cities. Recently set as Paris and Rome in Paul Feig’s Spy (2015) and notably as Buenos Aires in Alan Parker’s Evita (1996).
The Hungarian studios are regarded amongst the best in Europe and the English-speaking technicians are well revered. Due to the ever increasing demand that is upon the Hungarian Studios for Film Production, the Hungarian Film Fund launched a training initiative to develop the new generation of film crew.
