Film, drama university leadership resigns over ‘loss of autonomy’

The senate and leadership of Budapest's University of Theatre and Film Arts (SZFE) announced their resignation at a press conference on Monday, saying the foundation which recently took over the university under a government decree had deprived them of "all essential powers".

The outgoing officials said that “any appearance of the leadership’s independence can only be maintained by making unacceptable compromises”.

The outgoing leaders have vowed not take up any position at the helm of the university “until its autonomy is restored”.
