In his home coungrty, he had been struggling for living as theatre and television director. then finally he decided to try his luck abroad. His family origins from Cluj, avowing themselves Hungarians, who, if we scratch the surface, turns to be like most part of the urban population of the Carpathian basin: the blood of various nations is in their veins. He also found a jewish descendant, so he has been strengthening the Israel nation's colourful population. He couldn't resist to come back to the Long Lasting Mediawave, which name is his merit.

Gábor Czímer reports
The name of the event suggests some sort of a top hipster-style yet the experience is original. We attended the LONG-LASTING MEDIAWAVE Film and Music Gathering in the Fort Monostor, Komárom. The event differs strongly from our country's festivals we are accustomed to. The high quality and internationality of the program is unfortunatelly unusul in Hungary.
