Spending on film production in Hungary was close to USD 1 billion in 2023, government film industry commissioner Csaba Kael said at the opening of the MOZ.GO festival in Veszprém on Wednesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Budapest has become the biggest film production base in Europe after London, Mr Kael said. That environment is reflected in the quality of Hungarian productions, he added.

Among the cinema, television, and streaming productions on the program at this year's MOZ.GO are "Poor Things", directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, and Denis Villeneuve's "Dune", both filmed in Hungary.

The Hungarian set decorator Zsuzsa Mihalek won the 2024 Academy Award for Production Design for her work on "Poor Things", while the Production Design Oscar for set decoration went to the Hungarian Zsuzsanna Sipos for her work on "Dune" in 2022.
