16. BUSHO SCREENING PROGRAM 2020

After lengthy preparation and deliberation, the competition and panorama program for this year’s 16th BuSho Festival has finally been born. Based on the votes of the renewed pre-jury, 66 short films from 23 countries were finally entered into the competition, of which 5 were experimental, 15 were animated and 46 were fictional works. Once again, the Hungarian artists caused a serious headache for the pre-jury, because we got so many excellent works from the home field, that it was really difficult to decide in the confusion of abundance. There were some who did an excellent job but crossed the 30 minute entry threshold, others also hit the competition level even with their 2 films, but true to our habits we chose only one for the competition, again there are big returnees and debut young artists in the field. Of course, the international production also promises a very colorful program, according...

As Brian of Nazareth has already said: Always look on the bright side of life.

In addition, we have just updated this year's pre-selection team, as several selectors have debuted here, which is why we will dedicate a separate chapter to them soon. Now let’s focus on the statistics, as we indicated earlier, we approached...

After skipping the introductory phase, we threw ourselves into the middle of the workshop and found ourselves at an international short film screening at the end of the first day. Taking advantage of the local bonding, our guest was the director and editor of the Slovenian film Nellie for a Q&A session. The next day Levi (who is not Lajos but Galambos) from the Hungarian team gave a fantastic presentation on photography!

THIS YEAR WE CATCH UP TO OURSELVES

We have been thinking for years now about how we could reach the BuSho number that’s always two years ahead with the most recent GomBuSho, as the festival has started in 2005, and the all-art workshop has started in 2007 and then Gabix came. Years and years of memories we made together connects me to him, the student film festival director of all time, whose incomparable Johnny Weissmüller hair and whose head was echoed by the horn of Lehel in the Szőke movie, or...

On the occasion of BuSho International Shortfilm Festival's 15th anniversary, we came up with the idea of astonishing high school students with shorts that are precious for us, and may as well be to them over time. So we set up a best-of screening material that can be devided into 2 parts. The first one includes only no-dialogue films, and the second contains just 3 opuses. This can be watched and discussed separately or all together, as it is only 100 minutes long. The selection has been upgraded with international...

Since a lot of filmmakers indicated that they are having trouble re-uploading their shorts due to the internet connection, but there is already an existing password protected vimeo link for their movie, so we created a quick help!

Of course, this does not relieve the creators from filling in the entry form, only the movie does not have to be uploaded to the server again!
