The National Film Institute places great emphasis on the development of the Hungarian film industry and film culture, and the training of future film professionals.
In order to increase the competitiveness of the Hungarian film production, the Film Industry Training Program was launched in 2016. Its primary aim was to eliminate skills shortages experienced mainly in areas of production and to create the sustainable future of local film professionals.
Subsequently, as a further development of the Film Industry Training Program the Department of Training and Innovation was formed in the autumn of 2017 with a specific mission.
Key areas for future development:
- short-term, targeted skills trainings in the shortage areas
- creative lectures, workshops and master classes for young, entry-level professionals
- audience education and development
- career orientation for youth
- research and development
