HUNGARIAN SHORTS IN COMPETITION 2019

The compilation of the 15th BuSho Festival posed quite a challenge for our 5-members strong Pre-Jury, which they also reiterated in their summaries, and highlighted that the number of quality shorts exceeded the limit available for the competition programme. Indeed, if we take a statistical approach: 70 creations were selected as competition programme out of the nearly 1000 submissions, thus making up only 7% of the films screened by our selectors – but, naturally the time constraint is the main factor to take into consideration. Without too much of self-aggrandizing: they made the best choices and distilled the essence for our audience – for which we compiled a little appetizer from Hungarian creators.

 

 

Where to start... ah, yes! Parallel to the boom of the full spectrum of Hungarian shorts, the animation genre grew to a respectable extent and bore beautiful fruits in doing so. Mr. Mare by Luca Tóth made its world debut without speaking a single word at the 69th Berlinale, but at the same time told a story about condition-free, unilateral love, disillusionment, vanity and sexuality. The film of Anna Flóra Buda, titled Entropia that she created for her graduation at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design was screened also at Berlinale, and received the Teddy price of the independent jury due to creations involving LGBTQ topics.

INTERNATIONAL FILMS IN COMPETITION

The compilation of the 15th BuSho Festival posed quite a challenge for our 5-members strong Pre-Jury, which they also reiterated in their summaries, and highlighted that the number of quality shorts exceeded the limit available for the competition programme.

Next to the Estonian animated filmmakers German artists will be in competition with several films, like Love me, fear me from Veronica Solomon, which is a dance metaphor about feelings, our roles and about the forms we create, or Nest, Sonja Rohleder's film about a naive bird of paradise. Of course there is no festival without French animation, so we will have Anne Laricq's masterpiece Il c'est passe quelque chose, which shows the last day of a long weekend at the beach, where everyone prepares to say goodbye and suddenly everyone sees everyone in a more attractive light. Of course there will be some excellent experimental films in the programme,

13th GOMBUSHO ALL-ART WORKSHOP 2019

We have thrown ourselves for the 13th („unfortunate”) time into the sea of dust the harvest brought, which has again not caused any trouble for the small but very enthusiastic team, because the pool, or the garden shower or the Szelidi lake were all there to wash off the dirt. The aim was to create the design elements of the festival, for which we had some long absent friends and five newbies, who have found out about us at the Partium Christian University, in the college dormroom, or the workplace café!

15. BUSHO COMPETITION PROGRAM 2019

As you could read about it before on our website, we received almost a thousand submissions by the april deadline, from which the competition and panorama programme of the annual 15th BuSho Festival has been selected thanks to the tireless work of the 5 member pre-jury. The colleagues of the pre-jury have years of routine selecting films, so they were not surprised by the excellent selection that they were presented with this year, which resulted in the 70 short films competing from 18 different countries at the end of August, which assembled into categories mean: 16 animated films, 9 experimental and 45 fictional short feature masterpieces.

STATISTICS FIRST HAND

This year’s 15th annual Budapest Short Film Festival has received a total of 894 submitted short films, which, according to our experience means that we will only be able to present the tenth of the films we’we been sent. so the pre-jury has to think carefully about which films it will recommend into the final program. Not surprisingly two thirds of the submissions have arrived through Freeway, followed by BuSho’s own online platform, which has received about 200 submissions, then Festhome and Reelport ends the list. First we have aggregated the sections categorically...
