Competition Programme of the 14th BuSho

After the deadline, when we again received almost thousand entries, our re-updated pre-jury board have finished their selection process – involving a brand new member from last year’s student jury – as a result 64 shorts are in competition for the 3 main prizes and 8 category prizes at the 14th BuSho Festival. The screening time is 15 hours all together - as usual, 16 animation, 5 experimental and 43 fiction films, with 1 Hungarian short in each screening block.

The Law of Large Numbers has once again proved itself to be true – the most contenders come from countries that have finished on top of the entry-statistics, bearing in mind that this may not mean anything. There are exceptions that prove the rule – in case of countries submitting a small number of shorts: this gems come from Australia, Iran, Iceland or Uruguay. Let us know listen to what the members experienced...

THE BEGINNING OF THE END

The 14th BuSho preparation and entry phase has ended, and in sporty language all went as expected. We again neared the thousands entries which is a perfect field to put on a quality competition of. At least the experts and the public say so, and that is what we want. Most of the 957 entries came via Filmfreeway, exactly 568. Half of it through BuSho's own portal the other one through Reelport. The category breakdown is also as usual, although many films were labelled short or feature, which isn't exactly explaining what gender the piece is. Again the fiction films make the most of the entries...

COOL TOUR / JUGENDKULTURARBEIT: After the preparation meeting held in the fall of 2017 in Karlovac and spiced up by flood and fire alarm, the hardest winter-week of this year greeted us where we had to head for the Northern part of Germany instead of the Bahamas, our destination was Oldenburg, a city with 170 thousand inhabitants; we resided in the Cultural Youth Worker Centre.  At last, the implementation phase of the Finding Humanity human rights documentary projects has come...

AKBANK FESTIVAL ISTANBUL

The delegates of antecedent BuSho festivals, that is István Kovács, Dávid Géczy and Gábor Hörcher gave the proverbial baton to Kata Lovrity, who had the honour and privilege to take part at the prestigious Akbank Festival in Turkey with her animation “Volcano Island”, she told us upon her arrival back home: “It was an uplifting experience, thank you for the recommendation! Áron and Co are very cool and helpful people, we were for 5 days in Istanbul, my sister travelled with me. The Q&A was very interesting, the audience addressed unusual questions (and not the run-of-the-mill ones like: why this or that happens in the film, where did we get the idea etc), they had a professional attitude, which implies that they were professionals, the Q&A lasted for circa 1.5 hours. They also posed theoretical questions (why it is beneficial to create a short film, how many short films does it take to gather experience for a feature film, should the budget be tight what shall it be spent rather on, what is it like to work together with a script writer etc)...
