Dora Nedeczky


  • Dora Nedeczky is a Hungarian producer and strategist with a background in aesthetics and film theory based in Tallinn, owner of the Estonian film production company Mindwax OÜ. Dora has collaborated with Texan directors Ivete Lucas and Patrick Bresnan since 2015. She was the associate producer for short doc The Rabbit Hunt (2017) which, after premiering at Sundance Film Festival, played at the Berlinale, won “Best Short” at the BFI LFF, and “Best Documentary Short” at Sheffield, among seven other Oscar qualifying awards. Dora is the Estonian co-producer for the team's next short doc Happiness Is A Journey (2021) that is set to premiere in Locarno.

    She has produced British-Greek cult director Peter Strickland's short form works since 2013. This includes the Venice-premiering GUO4 (2019) and Cold Meridian (2020), which competed in San Sebastian's Zabaltegi Tabakalera programme. Both shorts were acquired by MUBI, Altered Innocence, Frameline and Arcadia respectively. Dora also produced Strickland’s segment The Cobblers’ Lot in the folk horror anthology The Field Guide to Evil (2018), premiering at SXSW.

    Meanwhile she has been producing established Hungarian experimental filmmakers Péter Lichter and Bori Máté's feature length works since 2019. Their hybrid feature, Empty Horses (2019), premiered in Jihlava's Between The Seas competition, then was selected to IFFR's Deep Focus programme. Their horror essay anthology The Philosophy of Horror - A Symphony of Film Theory (2020) co-premiered between Torino and Cottbus, was on Sight & Sound's Best 2020 Essay Films list and was selected to IFFR's 2021 Summer edition.

    Dora is an EAVE Producers Workshop 2016 graduate and she has several projects in pre-production Estonia. Dora collaborates closely with Allfilm for over a year, on Marko Raat’s project 8 VIEWS OF LAKE BIWA, and on the short film project SAUNA DAY by directors Anna Hints and Tushar Prakash – both projects received production funding from the Estonian Film Institute in 2021.
