BLOODY BUSHO VALENTINE – CANCELED!!!
The National Blood Supply Service together with the Hungarian Two-Tailed Dog Party organizes a traditional blood-sucking blood donation, this time in the name of Love on Valentines Day, in Bálint House. As we wish for spring to come closer so we can paint outside again, we are organizing a Bushok ind of spring awakening with the best of selection of the 15 years of Busho Festival.
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, and it goes back right to the beginning, which has been a serious technical challenge as the first few festivals received submissions on VHS and then on DVD. We tried to select the essence from the international short films, too, so the audience can see the most colorful and dynamic screening possible.
The prologue of this material is basically some self introduction of the Festival, because we did not only held the main event of BuSho over the past one and a half decade, but also organized all-art workshops as well as spot&poster and one-minute shorts competitions. A few Hungarian Academy award nominees were put into it, for instance M. Tóth Géza's animation, Maestro from 2006, or Tóth Barnabás' My Guide from 2014. Kis Hajni's masterpiece, the Last Call and last but not least Deák Kristóf, who marks the Oscar-winning short Sing, and his new piece, Best game ever.
One blood donor can save three lives, while serving their own health at the same time, so come join us, donate blood, and afterwards see some great shorts.
Place and Date: Bálint ház (Budapest, VI. Ker. Révay u. 16.) 2020.02.14. 14:00 – 19:00
