FESTIVALS: The BuSho Film Festival (HUNGARY)

The BuSho Film Festival

The festival was established in 2004 by a group of young Hungarian filmmakers in order to fill a gap in the category of short film, but during the years it became clear that it was about much more. The name "BuSho" has come from a pun (Budapest Short - budapesti rövid), but it refers to a traditional popular custom of winter-send-of from Southern Hungary called "busójárás". The festival became an international breakthrough in an exceptionally short period of time: we got 620 individual entries from 61 countries in 2008. Nearby the competition and informational program we have plenty of festival screenings, selections of filmuniversities, feature films, film-, and all-art workshops in the program.
