ESFF Film-Maker Interviews #4: Barnabas Toth

We were delighted to play host to the very charming Barnabas Toth from Budapest whose short film ‘Chuchotage’ screened at the 2018 Edinburgh Short Film Festival and was also Oscar nominated!

A slyly witty romantic comedy staged with care and attention to detail, Chuchotage was one of our favourite comedies of last year and we interviewed him about the film in Edinburgh!
