He moved to Berlin, Germany in 2022 to be part of DFFB’s Serial Eyes program 2022/2023. György is currently working on two TV projects: he’s the head writer of a political thriller ’Salvation’ for Proton Cinema Budapest and a quirky comedy series ’Over the Rainbow’ for Odeon Films Munich-Berlin. He’s also developed a queer history show called ’Home’ (Serial Eyes, Serien Camp, Sundance Virtual Lab) – which is a real love project for him.
