A new company called CAM Magyar Kft. has been established in Hungary. As of the March 1, 2018 the Hungarian CAM team is employed by this new Kft.

The CAM Group in Leiden had a lovely dinner in Sisaket (see banner) and enjoyed the delicious Thai food, which was as good and authentic as it would have been prepared in Thailand - according to Magdi who has lived in that country for a few months. The team was happy to discuss a.o. the latest developments in the film industry, feedbacks of Berlinale and the upcoming Cannes Film Market.

After surviving the always crazy year end closing, the CAM Group in Budapest joined their forces and cooked together a dinner a la TexMex (see banner). The menu was fajitas, burritos and cheese cake. It was real team work and no one left the place hungry so we can consider it as a successful night!


AVPR: Gergely Nemeth has been promoted to Data and Registration Manager AVPR. He will be responsible for all title and society registrations in addition to making quarterly and annual claims with collecting societies. Congratulations Gergo!

CAM: Attila Fejos has decided to leave Fintage. His last workday was Wednesday, March 28, 2018.

OPS: Martin Horsten his last workday was March 9, 2018. As a 'Thank You', Martin ordered a big delicious Fintage Cake (see banner). Marian O'Hanlon will no longer be consulting for Fintage as she started her new consultant role with Shell on March 26, 2018.
