Hungary's Official 2020 Oscar® Selection PREPARATIONS TO BE TOGETHER FOR AN UNKNOWN PERIOD OF TIME [Felkészülés meghatározatlan ideig tartó együttlétre - Horvát Lili új filmje]

In her second feature, writer/director Lili Horvát evokes Sylvia Plath's haunting villanelle, "Mad Girl's Love Song," and spins a delicate web of contrasts and silent explosions that shift the viewer's understanding. Shot with impeccable symmetry on entrancing 35mm, it is an Orphic tale with echoes of Krzysztof Kieślowski's THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VÉRONIQUE that reminds us while the heart is an abstruse trickster, the brain is our most complex organ.

Building and improving relationships in the business between the United States and Hungary is a primary goal of the Embassy of Hungary. We are not only working on attracting foreign investments into our wonderful country but also actively working with our domestic companies to help them expand and invest in foreign markets. These were some of the main points addressed by H.E. Ambassador Szabolcs Takács during Thursday’s virtual BPDC event, US-Hungarian Bridge to Innovation. The event provided two Hungarian leaders in IT services, BlackBelt Technology and Quadron Kibervédelmi Kft., to present their products and business models in front of an expert audience. The duo of Hungarian companies has been working with our partners to identify market opportunities and steps to expanding further into the US markets. A big thank you to the teams at GetGlobal and Innomine Group for helping organize this event.

Hungary becomes Core Sponsor of the Three Seas Initiative Investment Fund

The Hungarian EXIM Bank concluded its agreement with the Three Seas Initiative (3SI) Investment Fund on December 2, 2020, with an investment of 24.2 M USD.

Hungary also applauds the U.S. Congress for its bipartisan support of the initiative and the Administration's decision to invest up to 1 BN USD in the Fund. Hungary looks forward to working with all stakeholders to make the project a transatlantic success story. As another contribution, Hungary offers to host the 3SI permanent Secretariat in Budapest.

🇭🇺 Mozgalmas volt az adventi időszak második hétvégéje. A magyar hagyományokat követve a Mikulás december 6-án idén is meglepte az amerikai magyar gyermekeket ajándékcsomagokkal.

December 5-én a nagykövetség munkatársai saját sütésű zserbó sütemények felajánlásával támogatták a 4.sz. Bátori József cserkészcsapat - Hungarian Scouts of Washington adománygyűjtő süteményvásárát.

A programok a járványügyi helyzet helyi rendelkezéseivel összhangban kerültek megrendezésre.

🇺🇸 We had a busy second Advent weekend. Based on Hungarian tradition, Santa Claus came on December 6th this year too to surprise Hungarian American kids with Hungarian candy bags.

On December 5th, colleagues of the Embassy supported the Bake Sale of the 4.sz. Bátori József cserkészcsapat - Hungarian Scouts of Washington by offering self-baked walnut cakes, the popular zserbó.

Both events took place in line with the current local COVID related restrictions.

Dear Hungary, Land of Magyars, I hope you are well and Spring has made the land green. I am writing for a sensitive matter. The man George Soros is a Hungarian citizen and no one wants ill to befall a fellow citizen. However Mr. Soros' activities in the United States has caused DESTRUCTION and DEATH. I do not know what Soros has done in Hungary, that is why I say it is sensitive. The state of THE PRESS has made their reports unreliable, at best. SO if he has done wrong in Hungary and authorities have arrested him. At Hungarian APPROVAL! We would like extradition of George Soros after he has served Hungarian Justice. My city, Cincinnati, Ohio has had destruction of property and people injured by AGENTS under Soros' pay. Other parts of United States, homes of proud Hungarian immigrants have been harmed. I am writing as a citizen and I wish my government was doing this. BUT their attention is occupied. Thank you for your time and patience. An old friend had her Hungarian grandmother visit the United States in 1960's. They went to grocery one day to make Hungarian food. The Grandma didn't get pass the oranges, apples, bananas BEFORE CRYING AT ALL THE FOOD. Grandma was used to Stalin's economy. Manager of store gave Grandma a FRUIT BASKET. She nearly passed out. I hope Hungary has bananas and oranges in stores now. Thank You.
