17. BUSHO SELECTORS IN 2021

To our greatest surprise, there was a serious oversubscription for our pre-selector position call for the 17th BuSho Festival, where we were looking for 1 person for one of the most important phases of the festival, the BuSho Pre-Jury, because most of the team stayed with us, which is great news. And since we have learned over the years how important the sex ratio is when, for example, the competition program has been called „too Macho”, but there are currently two male and two female selectors, we have simply articulated the task.

And why, despite so many domestic and international events, so persistently? Maybe because it proves from time to time again when we personally attend an event like this. We had the chance to judge at 2 international short film festivals recently, specifically on Brno16 and at the same time Koncz Teréz in Gdansk, unfortunately in both cases from home, and how can I say, I didn’t have the feeling. We didn't have to cry or laugh together...
