The pre-jury had the toughest job ever in the festival’s history as they counted from 55 countries 962 entries. This amount of shortfilms is unique in Hungary. So we are pleased to announce that the 7th BuSho International Short Film Festival’s competition program is lined up and contains 93 shorts in total including 65 fiction, 16 animation and 12 experimental works. By the statistics it isn’t a surprise that the most entries made it to the competition are from Spain. There will be a Panorama section again where we’ll show those works just missed the competition and also all the received Hungarian shorts will be screened, to make everyone an opportunity for their work to be shown. So we’d like to ask all the filmmakers to post their copy by 15. July the latest with the following technical parameters: PAL SD 16:9 (or 4:3 but please not letterbox) on MiniDV tape buy generic cipro online (SP, DVCAM) or data DVD (AVI, MOV, MPEG2 MP4).

The filmmakers whose works made it to the competition can register on the website till 30th of july, if they wish to participate the festival in person. Here is a little taste from last year of what is the „BuSho experience”. Now for the next 2 months we got nothing else left to do but creating the fundamental conditions of making this festival to happen, since apart from one, all of our tenders were declined! It seems that the Board of Trustees took things seriously when deciding by considering 2011 as the year of European Volunteering, so everyone works voluntarily at the festival, although neccessary things like festival catalogue, cinema rental, jury costs or the awards have to be paid for. But we’ll find a solution and all will be welcome in the first week of September at the 7th BuSho Festival!
