EFP Producer on the Move: Attila Csaky

Written by FNE Staff

Hungarian Producer on the Move Attila Csaky's production experience dates back to 1989, when he served as a production assistant on Before the Bat's Flight is Done directed by Peter Timar, building his credentials as a location manager and crew member, before taking up a position as production manager and overseeing such films as the Hapsburg historical epic The Bridgeman (2002), the Bulgarian-Dutch-Hungarian coproduction Pismo do Amerika (2001) directed by Iglika Triffonova, and Marta Meszaros' Polish-Hungarian coproduction A magzat (1994).

By 2002, Csaky had moved on to producing, starting with a pair of Hungarian comedies that year. He founded the production company Cameofilm (www.cameofilm.hu) in 2003, producing Meszaros' The Unburied Man, a coproduction between Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. The next two years, he produced TV movies, including one directed by Geza Beremenyi for Hungary's Duna TV. He served a coproducer on Pater Sprrow's 2009 thriller 1. Csaky recently produced the 2010 Hungarian-UK romantic drama Kolorado Kid directed by Andras Bagvolgyi B., and Ticket by the aging enfant terrible of Hungarian animation, Oscar winner Ferenc Rofusz.

Csaky's next project is Balint Kenyeres's Hier, selected for this year's L'Atelier programme in Cannes.
