Krisztina Goda is one of Hungary’s best directors with an eye for both comedy and drama. Her work covers a variety of genres and is always driven by intelligence, visual flair and emotional insight.
She has graduated as a director at the National Film and Television School and studied screenwriting at UCLA. Since then she has been constantly working as a director on both commercials and features.
Her first feature „Just sex and nothing else”, a witty and intelligent comedy was a box office hit, her second and third feature „Children of Glory” and „Chameleon” were both commercial and festival successes. „Home Guards” is an award-winning, emotional drama about radicalization. “Happy New Year” is based on the film entitled Perfetti sconosciuti, whose original script was written by Paolo Genovese. This remake was a box office hit in Hungary.
Her most recent work is “Romance of Ida”, a turn-of-the-century romance story based on Géza Gárdonyi’s novel of the same name. The film received nomination for Best Television Film at the 61st Monte-Carlo Television Festival in 2022.
Krisztina is one of the industry’s top commercials directors with a lot of ironical jokes and bittersweet sentiments in her work. Her strength in storytelling is her extreme attention to detail and her humour.
