The main prize of the 3rd BuSho festival is won by the film entitled Offside ( Erez Tadmor, Guy Nattiv, Israel). The Silver Busho went to two Hungarian creators: Simonyi Balázs and Tóth Barnabás for the film „One vote” („Egy szavazat”), while the third step of imaginary stand could have been taken by Felix Stienz (Germany) for the film „Ladenhüter”. In the picture you can see the member of our jury, Kis-Bocz Éva with the prize.

The number of shorts entered to the festival has been doubled again this year -just as in 2006, so we have 360 films- a number not negligible even at an international rate. These 70 hours of motion picture caused some difficulties to the pre-jury, but they heightened the nivo of the festival at the same time. The 116 films of the competition program have been put into 22 blocks which cover all 4 days of the festival - setting a hard task to the international jury. See the schedule

Megszületett a 3. BuSho Fesztivál versenyprogramja, miután az előzsűri (Mag-Rimóczi-Ganczer) majd’ egy héten át tartó megfeszített munkával, mintegy 350 (azaz 60 óra) rövidfilm megtekintése után meghozta eddigi legnehezebb döntését. Mivel a tavalyi évhez hasonlóan, újra megduplázódott a nevezett filmek mennyisége és a versenyprogram időkorlátai sajnos végesek, ezért a rengeteg jó film tiszteletére egy új kategóriát hoztunk létre, mely a kiemelt információs filmeket tartalmazza majd.

Parade awards related to BUSHO
The prize of the best director at the 38. Hungarian Film Parade was given to Szász János for Opium- diary of an insane woman. We assume that the idea of the film was busted from the brain of the director when he wakened from his extasy after the viewing of Ballads of Szexard...
- The award of best actress was given to Kovács Kata for her performance in Kythera - probably her success is caused partly by the positive aura of a certain side-acting football hooligan...
- Certificate of merit: Igor and Ivan Buharov for " Slow Mirror" - because we like the films dancing on the edge of the razor which divide the public opinion...
- The prize of best camera-man of the jury of the shorts: was got by the cameraman of Alterego, Tóth Widamon Máté. This autumn the flat interiors are going to have great role even in our lives...

\"Master\" riddle: what\'s that?
It was present at various festivals 83 times, got 40 prizes and now it has an Oscar nomination. The solution is: MAESTRO.
The animated short film lasting almost 5 minutes of M. Tóth Géza was chosen among the best 5 by the American Film Academy. After 26 years when Ferenc Rófusz won an Oscar with his animated cartoon entitled The fly now the director teaching at the faculty of animation of the University of Handicrafts got really close to the possibility of getting the golden statuette.
The story of the "Maestro" – a kind, committed artist - and of his precise and humorous helpmate leads us to a special world both visually and emotionally. There is nobody who can resist their little world- from which the mantle falls down at the end of the film. We trust: they are going to feel this way even in America.
At 25. February let’s root for the the favourite of many of us: for "Maestro" which got two prizes at BuSho 2006!
