Film commissioner congratulates Hungary’s Sipos on winning Oscar

Csaba Kael, the government commissioner for developing Hungary's motion picture industry, congratulated Zsuzsanna Sipos on her winning the Academy Award for Best Production Design in the film Dune this year and to the Hungarian team working on the film, on Monday morning.

Sipos has won the Oscar for set design in partnership with Patrice Vermette. They also won this year’s BAFTA.

In a statement, Kael said “Dune’s success at the Oscar is also a recognition of the Hungarian film industry and the outstanding work of Hungarian film professionals”. He noted that Dune, one of last year’s blockbusters, was filmed almost entirely in Hungary with the involvement of hundreds of Hungarian film industry people.

“A big congratulations to the Hungarian experts who have contributed to this world success. The entire profession is overjoyed at Zsuzsanna Sipos’ Oscar and it also goes to show that we have world-class talents. It also sends the message to the world that Hungarian filmmakers are among the best,” Kael said in a statement.
