Hungary film studios reserved for years in advance
Budapest, March 21 (MTI) – The full capacity of Hungary’s film studios has been reserved for several years in advance, business daily Világgazdaság reported on Monday.
Citing figures from the Hungarian Film Fund, the paper said that film makers had spent a total 72 billion forints (EUR 232m) last year, up from 39.9 billion in 2012. Film-related spending between 2010 and 2014 accounted for 0.15 percent of Hungary’s GDP, 2.5 times the European average.
The leaders of Korda Filmstudio and of the Origo Film Group, however, told the paper that growing demand has created a shortage of film making experts, and insisted that in future the current staff may need to be doubled.
