SPECIAL MASTER CLASSES
The students of Eötvös Loránd University and Budapest Film Academy can take part in free lectures and Master Classes, improving their filmmaking knowledge with the guidance of world-famous artists from the film industry.
In the Master Class series, which is organized by the Hungarian National Film Fund, our students have had the opportunity to participate in a two-day lecture with Oliver Stone, who has won three Oscars, four Golden Globes and an Emmy for writing and directing. His credits include; Nixon, JFK, Born on the Fourth of July, Platoon, Midnight Express, etc.
As part of the Master Class series, we had the chance to listen to and ask questions from three times Academy Awards and twice Golden Globes nominated director Ridley Scott, whose films include Black Hawk Down, Gladiator, Thelma & Louise, American Gangster and many more.
Another directing legend also gave us an exciting lecture; Ron Howard talked about his career, filmmaking choices and took questions from the audience. The Academy Award and Golden Globe winner filmmaker directed Frost/Nixon, A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Happy Days, etc.
Budapest Film Academy and Eötvös Loránd University students participated in a two-day screenwriting class by Laurie Hutzler, who has worked as a creative consultant for BBC and Channel 4 and with Oscar winners like Nick Park and Steve Box.
Budapest Film Academy has also special Master lectures by world renowned filmmakers such as István Szabó, the Academy Award winner director of Mephisto. He won major awards in Berlin, Cannes, Chicago, Copenhagen and so on. István’s films include such classics as Being Julia, Sunshine, Meeting Venus, Oberst Redl, Taking Sides, etc. He has given lectures to our directing and screenwriting students, had conversation about their scripts and films, and shared his view on filmmaking. These lectures were free for Budapest Film Academy and ELTE students and we expect this series to continue in the future as well.
During the Master Class series, students interacted with, asked questions of, and gained insider tips from some of the most prestigious filmmakers of our time. These lectures were free for Budapest Film Academy and ELTE students and we expect this series to continue in the future as well.
