Film Director Student, German Film and Television Academy Berlin


Borbála was born in Hungary, the second child of two dancers. After having studied Movie Sciences and worked as a journalist in Budapest, in 2011 she moved to Germany. Starting out as a film festival organiser, it shortly became obvious to her that directing would be the best channel to share her stories. In 2012 she successfully applied to the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (DFFB). Since then her films have been shown at international festivals worldwide. Her latest work, "Land of Glory" won the prize of the best short film at the German Short Film Award. In 2017 Borbála was selected to the Talents Sarajevo, in 2020 to the Berlinale Talents.

​At the moment Borbála is developing her first feature, "Nothing to See Here". This project was invited to the CineLink Co-Production Market (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and to the Budapest Debut Film Forum (Hungary), where it received the first prize for the best pitch. Recently the project received a development fund from the Hungarian Film Institute in the framework of the Inkubátor Program.
