Hunnia Film Studio

The Hunnia Film Studio was the largest and most important film studio in Hungary. Located in the capital Budapest, it was for many years under state ownership. It originally belonged to Alexander Korda's Corvin Film company. In the closing months of the Second World War Hungary's ruling Arrow Cross regime planned to dismantle the studio and move it westwards, but this plan was wrecked when the Soviet Red Army captured Budapest and took control of the studio.[1]

It should not be confused with the earlier similarly named Hunnia Studio.
