About Richard

I was born and grew up in Hungary. Between 2003 and 2008 I read English, American Studies, Film History and Film Theory at the University of Szeged, Hungary. During my university years: I founded and led a student theatre company; I translated (into Hungarian) and staged a couple of British plays; I volunteered at the Hungarian Alternative Theatre Centre and helped organise the international THEALTER Festival; I was a member of the Film Students' National Jury and participated at film festivals in Hungary; and I regularly published essays on film history and film theory in academic journals, one of which won first prize at the National Academic Students' Circle Competition in 2009. In 2008 I earned a Diploma in Assistant Direction and Production Management from the Hungarian Society of Cinematographers' Crew School. In 2008 I moved to the UK. I have been living and making films in London since 2010. In 2011 I graduated from the London Film Academy with a Diploma in Practical Filmmaking. I was also named Student of the Year. Since then I have been writing, directing and producing my films. My biggest success to date was with my short film S which received the Audience Award and the Special Mention by the Jury in its section at the 2015 Clermont-Ferrand International Film Festival. In 2018, I was selected as a participant of BAFTA’s Crew programme and was founding member of the first London-based Hungarian theatre group HubArt. The same year my feature film script Sweet Heart was selected as a Quarter Finalist in the Big Break Screenwriting Competition organised by Final Draft. Since 2020 I have also been representing the works of Róbert Hász, a multi-award winning Hungarian writer.
