About Us

The Association was founded to promote the development of both the art of Hungarian film and the Hungarian film industry; to endorse the interests of the professional film industry as well as its creators and artists; to ensure appropriate working conditions for industry professionals; and to improve the Hungarian film industry’s social and artistic appreciation.

The Hungarian Film Academy was founded in July, 2014. It was the 18th among the European film academies.

The purpose of the Hungarian Film Academy Association was to promote the development of both the art of Hungarian film and the Hungarian film industry; to endorse the interests of the professional film industry as well as its creators and artists; to ensure appropriate working conditions for industry professionals; and to improve the Hungarian film industry’s social and artistic appreciation.

Following international example, the Academy was founded as an association to meet the needs of the Hungarian film industry. The founders of the Association are artists who participated as producer, director, cinematographer, film editor, writer, actor, musician, decorator, designer, scene designer, sound engineer, or make-up artist in the making of at least 2 feature films, documentaries, informative films, short feature films, or animations that were shown either in movie theatres or on television.

It is also the responsibility of the Hungarian Film Academy to present the annual Hungarian Film Awards. All Association members vote by secret ballot.
