Gabriella Bácskai


She is a cultural anthropologist, cultural manager, tourism economist. Currently working in public administration, her responsibilities include the planning and managing EU funded projects and making films to present these. She lived in India for a while and gained her first film making experience. She is expected to graduate as a documentary filmmaker from the University of Pécs later this year.

She finds documentaries the most exciting medium to present the human and material environment, providing the opportunity for self-expression and professional knowledge or a complex interpretation of a particular topic. She is particularly interested in filming marginal, unnewsworthy, everyday situations and events, as well as the presentation of social groups and individuals who are not usually actors in the media and do not receive public attention. The documentary is a window to a part of reality that we might not notice without it.
