Match Frame Productions is a film production company based in Budapest, focusing on socially relevant creative documentaries and short films. Noémi Veronika Szakonyi and Máté Artur Vincze founded the company at the end of 2014 in order to support and provide a background for young Hungarian documentary filmmakers. They have graduated from the first documentary directing MA course in Hungary where they started to develop projects together with their classmates.
