Grandfathers and

“How could a grandson interrogate his grandfather on why he signed the letter that enabled the Russians to crush the 1956 Hungarian Revolution? With difficulty, with enormous heartache, with perseverance, and with love.”

Adrian McGregor – The Australian

My America

“Aussie documaker Peter Hegedus literally puts himself on the psychiatrist’s couch in My America, a stimulating chronicle of his search for the America he loved while growing up in socialist Hungary and suburban Brisbane.”

Richard Kuipers – Variety


The Trouble With St Mary's

“It is gripping television…”

Gregg Elliott – InDaily


“Where his documentaries have captured the human condition, this short drama captures the soul – in all its complexity and conflict.

Uneasy, uncertain and uncompromising,

just like it should be.”

Trent Dalton – Brisbane News


Grandfathers and

“Grandfathers and Revolutions is a stunningly subtle disquisition on truth and reality.”

Colleen Scott – Amsterdam

A Fisherman's Story

“Inheritance is a powerful insight into the human condition and an extraordinary piece of documentary portraiture.”

The Trouble
With St Mary's

“Unlike so many contemporary documentaries, this film is refreshingly and appropriately free of artifice or manipulative devices. Beautifully straightforward, it is like the people it portrays: faithful, intelligent, natural, warm and earthy. You forget you are watching a film – you are watching the plain fascinating truth of unadorned humanity in it’s most unpretentious, paradoxical, soulful, courageous and evolving creative state.”

Michael Leunig

A Fisherman's Story

“Inheritance stands out on all levels. Not only is the development of the story quite remarkable, the protagonist is a treasure, but it is also a very cinematic film. The pictures are beautifully framed and the editing is smooth and elegant. A brilliant and also very important film.”

Ulla Jacobsen – DOX Magazine


"Hold On" - Suicide Prevention Campaign

“Let me express this simply. Although I spend my life dealing with suicide risk, your team’s movies give me goose pimples! I am delighted you can tap into the opposing forces in suicidal patients, and express them so graphically, integrating seamlessly the message of hope which is so vital.”

Dr David Horgan – CEO Australian Suicide Prevention Fund

A Fisherman's Story

“Peter Hegedus enters – deeply, personally and above all tactfully into his subject. Inheritance is reminiscent of Michael Moore’s work only here the focus is on the eccentric humanity of the film’s subject rather than on that of the filmmaker himself.”

Ron Stringer – LA Weekly


Together in Partnership

We really appreciated his ability to connect with the people who were to feature in the film. They all live with significant disability and so trusting someone to come into their homes and their lives is a big ask. Peter managed this beautifully. From day one, Peter was really flexible and responsive and went out of his way to capture special moments with people. Best of all we ended up with a product that looks great and conveys our message well.”

Margaret Rodgers – CEO – Community Resource Unit

Big Stories, Small Towns

“I loved the way that Peter was able to connect with his subjects (myself and my family), and was so easy to work with. He has a tremendous ability to maintain the integrity of a story, sharing the toughest of topics with transparency and empathy.”

Greg Dennis – Scenic Rim 4Real

Milk & Robotic Dairy


Moonlight Magic

Peter’s film communicates the excitement in the build up to the event and the joy of the night itself. Ultimately, it allows the viewer to recognise the desire to be included is at the heart of what we all want – somewhere to belong.”
