Mark Lakatos is a 20 year old filmmaker from Hungary. He established himself as a prominent sports event videographer, media manager and short film director.
In late 2018, he directed ‘The Pedestrian’, a short adapted from the work of Ray Bradbury’s dystopian work of the same name. In October of 2019, he created ‘Act!’, the award-winning environmental short film that headlined the Zöldgömb Film Festival in Hungary. In January of 2020, he wrote and directed the award-winning science-fiction silent film, ‘House of Babel’. In late August of 2020, he wrote and directed the first ever Hungarian action short film ‘The Siege’, earning international acclaim not long after its release. In March of 2021, he wrapped production on his fifth short film, the horror-drama ‘Venandi’, and went on to write and direct ‘The Siege 2’.
‘The Siege 2’ is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. It chronicles a series of major events after the first chapter that feel connected in such a strong manner. It also has some fascinating new characters and bigger, meaner action scenes. It expands on this world in ways we never thought possible and pushes the boundaries of what is possible for independently produced low-budget films.
