EFA Supports the Students and Senate of the Budapest University of Theatre and Film Arts

We deplore the fact that the University Senate has been deprived of its decision-making power and that the University of Theatre and Film Arts in Budapest has essentially lost its academic autonomy.

We fully support the students and the Senate of the University in their decision to not recognise the legitimacy of the new Board.

The art of cinema can only breathe in an atmosphere of openness, transparency and democracy.

In support and solidarity for a successful outcome of the occupation,

Wim Wenders & Mike Downey
President & Chairman of the Board
EUROPEAN FILM ACADEMY
