Three literary adaptations have received distribution aid from the Motion Picture Public Foundation of Hungary.
To qualify for the aid, filmmakers and distributors have to commit to generating 80-100,000 admissions.
Eight films received aid, with the largest sums going to: Tamas Sas' adaptation of Apam Beajulna (This'd Make Daddy Faint) by Richard Salinger, produced by Gabor Kalomista of Megafilm; Gabor Herendi's parody of various episodes in Hungarian history, Magyar Vandor (Hungarian Wanderer), produced by the director's own Sky Film along with Lidia Kecskemethy; and Peter Bergendy's Allitsatok Meg Terezanyut! (Stop Mommy Theresa!), based on the bestselling novel by Zsuzsa Racz and produced by Istvan Bodzsar of Unio Film.
The first two films will be distributed by Budapest Film while the latter will be distributed by SPI International. All three films received Euros200.000 for production and Euors 51.000 in distribution aid.
