  • Our goal: the creation of the National Video Portrait Gallery, the larger volume of shootings nationwide and beyond the border

Tradition, Culture and Innovation

  • All of our films are celebrity- and politics-free, az real human and professional faces are presented

  • Our subjects tell stories and summarize their lives from their parents' house to the moment of filming

  • Our portrait film collection is the largest contemporary historical document that presents the Hungarian cultural and spiritual tradition, human will to do and success

  • We conduct our shootings in private, through recommendations, our subjects consider it an honor to appear, in many cases they are also happy to come to the shooting from the Hungarian-inhabited areas of the surrounding countries.

  • We are the only one in the world to have created our homogenous online movie collection representing many professions and professions, covering the entire nation

  • Our collection contains portraits of many well-known people, many of whom are unfortunately no longer with us

  • The largest collection of Oral History in the Hungarian nation, all our subjects lived through the regime change of 1989, and in many cases the previous historical eras as well

Passing on values, setting an example for future generations 

  • Our online system, with a possible state involvement, would make it possible to shape the future vision of Hungarian youth within and outside the country by getting to know our scientists, artists, athletes, successful entrepreneurs, etc. through our films. his true human history, his lived sense of Hungarianness, and his aspirations,   traditions

  • Presentation of role models can also be of great help when choosing a career

  • As an archive, the Hungarian Video Portrait Gallery is also worthy of presenting future generations and tracing different eras.

  • We are the opposite of video social media that are open and rarely show values in many cases

Expert opinion:

"The Archive edited by you is an important undertaking and also a mission, as it speaks to future generations in this age that focuses on the present.

The selected persons come from various sectors of Hungarian society, so the Archive covers almost the entire circle of culture in the broader sense, not only those who are successful in the fields of science and art, but also in the fields of economy and politics. These people are diverse, but they have one thing in common, and that is that they created value with their work and gained the respect of the community. The degree of personal success may vary, but portrait films show more than that; the messages of example in human stories and the personality. This Archive will become truly significant in fifty years, when historians will be looking for reliable information about the researched era or about a famous person. Narrated private history and historical experience survives in diaries, letters, and conversations.

On behalf of myself and all future researchers, I would like to thank your Editorial Board in advance for the work they are doing here and now!

It was an honor for me to be included in the Hungarian Video Hall of Fame with the portrait film you made. I would also like to thank them for their humane and professional attitude during the filming and the professionalism with which they created the film!
