Viktória Petrányi is an all-round character amongst Hungarian filmmakers. She graduated as a producer at the University of Theatre and Film Arts in Budapest and has been working with director Kornél Mundruczó on film and theatre productions since as a producer and scriptwriter. The duo established their film production company Proton Cinema
in 2004 which produced such international successes as the Cannes entries Delta, White God and Jupiter’s Moon – all directed by Mundruczo. Proton also produces cutting edge first fictions as Land of Storms by Adam Csaszi, For Some Inexplicable Reasons by Gábor Reisz or Guerilla by György Mór Kárpáti.
Viktória considers the mission of Proton Cinema to reflect on societal topics from multiple perspectives and believes that asking questions and awakening thoughts through productions is more important than giving concrete answers.
