BUSHO 2012: APOCALYPSE NOW!
It so much didn't take a prophet to tell that entries for the BuSho 2012 festival will break all the records so that the final number of entries came kind of shocking... After last years' almost thousand entries we hoped that it will exceed the milestone 1000. Well, we did by huge as there were more than 1800 entries sent! According to the capacity of the festival and recent years' standard, approximately the 5% of these can be selected to the competition program. This is a huge challenge for the pre-jury of that line-up has slightly changed since we made young film-loving women involved in pre-selection. More details, category break down can be found here, but now the shorts are mainly starring: apocalypse now!

In 2012 the credo „Are we entertained to death” of one-minute LifeAd competition proved to be surprisingly spot on as we didn’t get any financial support to it for the first time. So we could not held those previously succesful workshops and thus the entries also decreased. We still proudly represent these 22 shorts that entered regardless and would like to thank to their creators for making them despite the sad circumstances. The 10 Hungarian LifeAd that made it to the international final in Bratislava are highlighted in green, but all shorts will be forwarded there and followed by the grand final on 18-May they will be uploaded to the youtube channel of BuShoFest.

NEW WORKSHOP IN BALCHIK: DISSECTION OF DEMOCRACY
Thanks to the long-years-relationship with Balchik, we again could delegate youngs to the 10th IN THE PALACE international shortfilm festival at the beautiful seaside town Balchik, Bulgaria. Tsanko Vasilev, director of the Bulgarian festival was a jury member at BuSho festival some years ago. Then we had a few presentation at their festival, in fact one of these was Danube Mosaic – We Are Europeans? selection last year.Beside the film festival they also hold other filming and musical workshops, to which we delegated young artists in the last 2 years already. It is our pleasure that this year there will be chance again for some of these artists to see the wonderful venue and create something in this almost 2-weeks workshop.

ARE WE ENTERTAINED TO DEATH!?
The registration is open again for LifeAd of AZYL shorfilm festival of Bratislava. In Hungary hosted by Gombolyag Foundation also organizer of BuSho (Budapest Short Film Festival). Calling for such one-minute shorts that related to the topic ’LifeAd’. An outstanding achivement of 2011 was that Honfoglalás 2011 (Conquest 2011) by Kristóf Deák has been selected to the top 25 one-minute shorts of the world!!! The topic of 2012 will be what else than the crisis. Please note that we aren’t looking for painful sadness, rather optimistic ideas of solution. The Slovakians picked their credo: Are we entertained to death!? – since Hungarian is a complex language ours will be: ’K-rice is our food!?’ We hope that the tradition of making a short not only by yourself but in the frame of LifeAd workshops continues. One will be held in Budapest at SZFE with the leadership of János Xantus the other one in Oradea with Tamás Patrovits in February. We await for the decision of the relevant bodies about supporting the workshop, but in the meanwhile we would like to receive some feedback from you wether planning to participate or not!

The BuSho’s website has gone through a major improvement and been re-interpreted according to the requirement of present times. The words of our webmaster: ’Those who uses internet explorer 6 probably does not read the site, although it is quite common worldwide to use internet on phone or tablets. Because when you open the site in IE6 it asks you to install Chrome Frame plug-in and then it’d work fine, so basically the site isn’t optimized for, neither against anything. We refreshed our mailing list and newsletter system so if you do not want to receive newsletter anymore please click on unsubscribe so that we can delete you from the database. The online registration has been renewed too so the registration is now open for BuSho International Shortfilm Festival 2012!
