György Pálos, an award-winning film director, cinematographer and screenwriter, released an almost complete selection of his works related to education to those interested in the subject.
György Pálos graduated from the Eötvös Loránd University in 1986 with a degree in French history. He has been working as a director-cinematographer since 1989. He has been working at the Department of Film Studies at Eötvös Loránd University since 2000. He is a member of the Association of Hungarian Filmmakers, the Guild of Hungarian Directors, and the Hungarian Independent Film Association.
"The success of documentary filmmaking and teaching is decided on the field. It is the question how can I – both as a filmmaker and teacher - make sense of a situation, understand it and make it work in favour of my plan."
He enjoys making feature films, documentaries, but his attention and interest has been more focused on the documentary genre lately. He holds a course on documentary filmmaking at Eötvös Loránd University and shares his decades of experience with students. His DLA’s dissertation was also written on documentary filmmaking.
The documentaries dealing with the educational situation in Hungary are available in the reading room of Kazinczy Street, ELTE PPK Library, on dedicated machines.
