Jeno Hodi – Producer


Born and raised in Hungary, Jeno Hodi migrated to the United States in 1982. Having studied with directors Milos Forman, Brian De Palma, John Avildsen and Dusan Makavejev, he received his Master’s Degree in writing and directing from Columbia University and was the first student in its history to write, direct and produce a 35mm feature film while studying in its graduate film program.Throughout his career, Jeno’s role as a filmmaker has extended into all areas of production. In addition to selling fifteen screenplays, he has directed and produced several feature films, a variety of commercials, television pilots, and stage plays.As a filmmaker, he is proud of the fact that most actors he has worked with consider him an “actor’s director.” He has had years of training with some of the finest acting teachers; he is a member of Milton Katselas’ Master Class, attended Stella Adler’s acting workshop, and is a member of the writers/directors unit at the Actor’s Studio. Jeno’s last film, Metamorphosis, won three major awards (see below).
