  • Working with Angel Films has been a complete joy.The construction crews they provided have faced up to the challenges and demands of a tight schedule to produce sets that have been consistently well finished and always completed on budget.They accommodated some last minute changes with their customary helpfulness. I look forward working with Angel again soon.

  • Tangrystan productions have on several occasions the last two years been in Budapest and worked with Angel Films.They are very professional and always delivers top quality. A nice crew to work with and they always go far to achieve the best results. We strongly recommend Angel Films.

  • I produced a Captain Morgan's commercial in early 2012 for Todd Field/Smuggler and we used Angel as our service. The job was rife with your typical on-the-road insanity but the ladies of Angel made the experience a wonderful one. They are all great problem solvers and the job was a huge success. These ladies can handle a challenge and the proof is in the goulash!  Hope to see you all again soon!

    Drew Santarsiero Producer
  • In late 2014, I produced some ads for Jacobs Creek with Australian based production company Revolver. We assembled a US, Australian, Hungarian and Serbian crew  to shoot a series of short biographical films with the tennis player Novak Djokovic. With restricted access, we had no room for error and with the help of Zsofia and her team at Angel Films the shoot went like clockwork. Their capacity for hard work was matched only by their capacity to party at the end of a very successful shoot.

    Ian Iveson REVOLVER (Executive Producer)
  • I’ve been working with Angel Films two times till now and loved shooting with the Angel’s team. Both commercials had big studio sets, the Hungarian set construction was to the highest quality, professional, fast and very cost effective! Angel provides great service and they won’t let you leave the country without sampling some fine palinka - local spirit.

    Garfield Kempton RSA UK (Executive Producer)
  • Hi Zsofie and the team! From the beginning until the end, you guys were prompt and efficient. Our shoot was full of challenges and you showed amazing partnership with us. Your experience, solidity and humanity made our experience memorable. I hope we get a chance to work together soon!

    Emmanuelle Bérubé Les-Enfants / Producer
  • Angel Films is a slick, professional set up. They went above and beyond to look after us, and to make sure that production value showed on the screen. Plus, I still have very fond memories of the on set catering!

Why film in Hungary?

Impressions

 While making a film, I saw parts of the city, that tourists usually do not. I love this country, I had such wonderful experiences here with my children.

 Angelina Jolie

The architecture in the age of it and how pretty it is and the variety of locations we got… I think it would have been a pretty different movie without being in Budapest.

Melissa Mccarthy

I love Budapest. I wish I was there right now! It was damn good in Pest, people are cute. Full of good memories binds to the city, at least 10 years since I felt so good an set as there.

Jason Statham

Working and staying in Hungary was rewarding not only because of the helpful crew, but because of the architectural diversity of Budapest and the beautiful landscapes outside the city.

Viggo Mortensen

I think Budapest is one of the world’s biggest walking cities, and people are very nice. If this city had been in America, I would have definitely moved there.

Matt Damon

It’s such a diverting city! After we finished the shoot I had to come back for a reshoot and as the plane was landing it struck me, ‘I’m home’.

Anthony Hopkins

They are beautiful! I am fond of Budapest!

Robert Redford

I have great memories about Budapest, I loved to live there. Budapest is a beautiful city, my friends who visited all loved it…

Robert Pattinson

I spent a beautiful week in Budapest, biked the whole city around. I was with my son, who asked me to come back here by all means. The city is simply amazing! And because I love the snow, i may have to come back in winter too.

Hugh Jackmann

I’m amazed by Hungary, It’s such a superb country. The vineyards of Balaton, Eger and Szilvásvárad are splendid hotspots!

Gérard Depardieu

I would be really happy to have time again to walk in the city, sitting on the terraces, standing at the beautiful Hungarian women and tasting the fantastic Hungarian wine.

Cristopher Lambert

Budapest is a city of incredibly friendly and efficient, if one wants to make movies. Fantastic in the studio, our technicians are wonderful, and always with a friendly welcome. Budapest did not become someone, like many large cities, where life is nothing but a non-stop pursuit mania.
