Fundraising & Budget

Schedule

The project is expected to take 46 weeks to complete once sufficient funding has been secured. It is hoped that one third of the budget will be available by the fall of 2004, allowing the research and development phases to begin. It is crucial to begin research as soon as possible in order to ensure ample time to uncover the missing pieces of Gabor’s own history. The commencement of research and development in the fall of 2004 would allow for a completed film in late 2005. Full funding will need to be committed by the first quarter of 2005. It is intended that Budapest to Gettysburg be ready for theatrical and television premieres in 2006, the 50th anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution and Gabor’s escape to America.
