Hunnia Film

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Hunnia Film was a film studio founded on December 19, 1928, that was one of the largest sound film studios in Hungary. It was founded in Budapest initially as Hunnia Film Factory after Corvin Film Studio was purchased at an auction by the state-founded Filmipari Alap. During WWII, all of the studios were bombed, but Budapest's leadership with Mayor János Csorba at the forefront began rebuilding the main studio, which resulted in the company resuming film production as of October 2, 1945. The company was then nationalized on August 18, 1948.
