Oleg Makara-Kalmáry (born October 13, 1954, Czechoslovakia) is a film director, screenwriter and Slovak writer.[1][2][3] In 1969, he wrote his debut as a screenwriter Pozlátené dievča at the age of 14. He then went on to study film directing at All States Institute (now Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography) in Moscow under Roman Karmen. A pseudonym[clarification needed] is after his grandfather, art carpenter Eduard Kalmáry. E. Kalmáry was a chief manager of water sawmill in Remetské Hámre, East Slovakia, owned by the Vanderbilt family.[clarification needed]

He directed and wrote scenarios for Film Studio Koliba, Slovak Television (Slovenská televízia)[4][5] and Krátký film Praha (The Short Film of Prague)[further explanation needed] Dude on the Road[6] starring Peter Kočiš.[7] His work includes full feature films,[8] TV plays, TV series, documentaries,[9] educational movies[10] and cartoons.[11][12][13][14][15]

Since the nineties, Makara's work has focused on human rights and anti-drug multi-media campaigns. His project "Toleration"[16] (1995–1996) was dedicated to the Pope John Paul II and was screened on Slovak Television during his first visit in post-communist Slovakia.

He was one of the first Slovak artists to be invited to work with MTV.[17][18][19] This was the start of a charitable anti-drug campaign: "Stop to Drugs! Just Paint Your No!"[20] (1997–2008), supported by the Ministry of Education of Slovak Republic and funded by the Slovak Antidrug Fund. The campaign informed children and young adults about the danger of drugs via 13 antidrug spots "Stop to drugs - Just say no!"

In 2004, Makara initiated the project Gypsies Come To Town[21][22] which was meant to be one of the first soap operas about Romani and aimed to challenge widespread prejudices that see Romani either as thieves or a welfare burden.[23][24][25] Oleg Makara is currently working on the project The Angry 13 (13 rozhnevaných).[timeframe?][26]

His father, Štefan Makara[27] was a painter, journalist and script editor for Slovak Television (Slovenská televízia). His sister Saša Makarová [28] is a painter living in Vienna, Austria.
