Hungarian Films ‘Enrich Nation’s Collective Cultural Memory’
The head of Hungary’s media authority at a conference emphasized the importance of the cultural output of the whole nation, “not just the country’s”, especially in filmmaking.

Addressing the forum Hungarian Works without Borders, Mónika Karas said the films of Hungarian filmmakers beyond the borders -- which she noted have been supported by a separate budget for years -- are in focus this year.

“The spread of cultural values must not stop at the borders,” she said. Talented Hungarian artists beyond the borders should be given the resources and opportunities to make Hungarian-language media content and our common heritage even more diverse,” Karas said.

Karas noted that a scheme was launched in 2014 to help media service providers find Hungarian output in view of their European Union quota obligations. The socalled quota forum also broadened the opportunity of filmmakers to get support, she added.
