    Gábor Reisz (Budapest, 19 January 1980) Hungarian filmmaker graduated from the University of Physical Education (Budapest) in 2003, ELTE Faculty of Humanities – Film History and Film Theory (Budapest) in 2006, and University of Theatre and Film Arts (Budapest) as a film director in 2013.

    His debut feature, FOR SOME INEXPLICABLE REASON (2014) an unconventional coming of age story, premiered at the Karlovy Vary IFF, became a cult film in Hungary, and was a big success at the box office and on the int’l festival circuit as well (Special Jury Award, Audience Award, Student Jury’s Best Screenplay Award, People Choice Award - Torino Film Festival, 2014; Best Director Award - Sofia IFF, 2015; Bronze Taiga Prize - Khanty-Mansiysk Spirit of Fire IFF, 2015; Main Prize - Vologoda VOICES IFF, 2015; Best Debut Film - Vienna Let s CEE Film Festival, 2015; Special Prize - Cluj-Napoca Comedy Cluj Film Festival, 2015).
