The Untitled Love Story and The Rite in the Hungarian Filmlab

2011.01.11

Two Hollywood film productions shoot took place in Hungary recently of which the film processing was made in the Hungarian Filmlab

Angelina Jolie’s first directorial work, the Bosnian love story’s dailies shot both in Hungary and Bosnia were processed in the Filmlab. Almost at the same time we worked on the extra footage of The Rite starring Sir Anthony Hopkins premiering at the end of January. 

The producers told cinema journalists that they chose Budapest for the shooting because its beauty and variable panorama makes it suitable for scenes taking place in all different ages and places. Angelina Jolie shot war scenes set in Bosnia here, while Beau Flynn finished some Roman and Vatican scenes in our capital. The producers emphasized that the 20 % tax refund provided for film makers was especially attractive for them and it made good business sense.
