Budapest, Closed City

Máté Konkol's short film tells the story of Hungarian teenager Péter, who is taking his British friend, Adam on a personal but political tour around his hometown. The fast-paced and emotional day gets the two boys closer together in an exotic underground club. In the rabbit hole of creepy strangers and Péter's old friends, Adam starts easing up through dancing and makes a move at Péter - who now has to come clear with his own feelings.


Produced by Boddah's Gábor Osváth and Balázs Zachar, in co-production with Judit Romwalter of Sparks.

Gábor Osváth


Born in 1985, Gábor Osváth started his studies at the University of Theatre and Film Arts of Budapest in 2008. The first school project he produced introduced him to director Bálint Szimler and Marcell Rév - this movie ('Here I Am') landed at the Cinéfondation competition of Cannes in 2010. In 2012, he formed the company Filmfabriq which produces short films, documentaries and commercials. Later, he also formed Boddah - this time with Szimler and Rév, with Réka Bucsi also joining. Boddah quickly established itself as a strong force in Hungarian cinema with then music documentary Balaton Method and festival-favorite animations such as LOVE, Superbia and Mr. Mare. The slate of upcoming projects include feature films by Bálint Szimler and Réka Bucsi. Gábor is also heading Boddah's stand-up comedy division, organizing Hungarian shows for comedians such as Eddie Izzard, Bill Burr, Louis CK and many more. He is the co-head of Friss Hús Budapest International Short Film Festival.
