The 2010 BUSHO Film Festival in Hungary

BuSho Film Festival HungaryThe BuSho Film Festival was established in 2004 by a group of young Hungarian filmmakers in order to fill a gap in the category of short film.  However, over the years it became clear that it was about much more. The name “BuSho” has come from a pun (Budapest Short – budapesti rövid), but it refers to a traditional popular custom of winter-send-of from Southern Hungary called “busójárás”. The festival became an international breakthrough in an exceptionally short period of time; it boasted an incredible 620 individual entries from 61 countries in 2008. Alongside the competition and informational program there are screenings and workshops.

This year’s festival takes place from the 1st to the 5th of September.
