Sir Ridley Scott To Give Free Lecture In Budapest
World-famous Hollywood movie director Sir Ridley Scott, who is currently shooting his latest film in Hungary, is to deliver a free lecture as a star guest at the Hungarian National Film Fund’s Master’s Course held in Budapest’s Millenáris Teátrum events hall.

Participation at the Master’s Course is free of charge but subject to obligatory registration.

The registration period will open on 21 January. The English-language event will be hosted by Hungarian film director Isti Madarász; simultaneous interpretatation into Hungarian will be provided by organisers. Prior to Ridley Scott’s lecture, the director’s latest film “Exodus: Gods and Kings” is to be screened.

Born in 1937, Sir Ridley Scott is among Hollywood’s most successful and prolific directors. His best-known movies include “Alien”, “Someone To Watch Over Me”, “Thelma and Louise”, “1492: Conquest of Paradise”, “Gladiator”, “Black Hawk Down”, “American Gangster” and “Prometheus”. Also the producer of several successful television series, he was knighted by the Queen of England in 2003 for his service to the English film industry.
