EURÓPAI FILM DÍJ JELÖLÉS SZIMLERNEK
Szeptember 25-én szombaton este került megrendezésre a 16. Drama Nemzetközi Rövidfilm Fesztivál díjkiosztója, ahol Szimler Bálint: Itt vagyok című filmje kapta a 2010-es EFA (European Film Academy) jelölést. Az idén a Magyar Filmszemlén legjobb kisjátékfilmnek választott alkotást tavasszal 1500 film közül válogatták be a Cannes-i versenyprogramba, majd mint a mesében, elindult világ körüli útjára. Az Itt vagyok Szimler harmadéves vizsgafilmje volt a Színház- és Filmművészeti Egyetemen. A film képi világáért a végzős operatőr szakos hallgató, Rév Marcell felelt, producerei pedig Muhi András Pires és Osváth Gábor voltak. A görög szemlén az egyetlen magyar versenyfilm mellett bemutatták a BuSho prezentációját is, melyen személyesen vett részt a BuSho két munkatársa. Gábeli Tamás, fesztivál igazgató elmondta, hogy a nemzetközi szinten elismert fesztiválon a török, finn, német, svájci és görög tagokból álló nemzetközi zsűri már a vetítés estéjén nagy érdeklődést mutatott Szimler filmjével kapcsolatban.

BUSHO TOUR START
Each year once the festival is over the first thing we do is to make conact with partner festivals in order to promote ourselves by trying to get BuSho’s actual bests to be shown there. Sometimes due to short time scale between festivals we fail and have to wait another year. Just like at our first stop of BuSho tour in Drama Short Film Festival in Greece. Unfortunately there are two Hungarian festivals running in paralell to Greece one in Szolnok and the other in Szentes but we’ll try to be there at some stage. Then the avalanche starts rolling in mid October by visiting Brno as usual then on the world animation day at our new venue the Szabadság cinema in Oradea. In November the Hungarian Institute in Paris and the 25th year old Brest Short Film Festival will be hosting us. Then we ought to visit Euroshorts in Warsaw, Poland. Nevertheless in December we should go to Moscow and Sicily as well.
