Actors and productions need a place to meet. 

Our 20-year long career as an actor and an advertising expert, respectively, has shown us that there is no place in Hungary where actors looking for a job can get in touch directly with productions that are hiring. 

This is why we started developing Szabadszínész. 

Thanks to the capital investment of Hiventures, we are building Hungary’s first recruitment site where actors, regardless of their connections or geographical location, can receive casting calls for film, advertising or theatre. 

As more and more films are made in Hungary, we have extended the database to include amateur actors too.
