“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.”
DEBBIE VANDERMULLEN… Hartley-Merrill

“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.
IKA PANAJOTOVIC … Film Producer

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

“I have seen some amazing films every year at the Hungarian Film Festival – Some made me laugh, some cry – but all
memorable– This is an event in L. A. that all film lovers should not miss!!”
EVA GARDOS… Film Editor/Director

“Each year I look forward to the Hungarian Film Festival. The only venue in Los Angeles where one can see the best and the
latest films from Hungary. Often I take my entire class and meet in a nearby café afterwards to discuss the film we just saw.
Bela Bunyik’s tireless efforts always pays off when lines form around the theater to purchase tickets. The appreciative audience
is always unique
since it includes not only the local Hungarian community, but people from the film industry, academic students &
the general film going public. Keep doingIt Bela!”
GABOR KALMAN … Professor USC School of Cinema – Television & Art Center College of Design

“There is such a sense of anticipation, hope and joy for me at the thought of the Hungarian Film Festival. I get so excited to feel
part of “the family” again, to feel the beat of Hungary, to keep abreast of my people, my country, my peers, and to meet and talk to
visiting Hungarians or local Hungarians, or others who simply love and appreciate the Hungarian film industry as much as I do.
I wish more people would share this energy with me and come participate. Hungary needs our support.”
KATHLEEN GATI … Actress

“There would be no Hollywood without the contributions of great Hungarian artists and movies makers. The Annual Hungarian
Film Festival has been re-
Introducing our still great Hungarian artists to the American public. This service to all of us should continue creating new
awareness of our nation’s artistry. Thank you for bringing us gems like the “Glamour” and its talented writer/director
Frigyes Godros, among others.”
DR. ILDIKO F. CSETO … Attorney At Law

The Hungarian Film Festival is a once-a-year opportunity to catch the latest cinematic gems coming from Hungary, and to
witness that the creative energy of Zukor, Fox, Curtiz and Korda lives on in the newest generation of Hungarian filmmakers.”
