  • About
  • Submission Info

The festival was established in 2004 by a group of young Hungarian filmmakers in order to fill a gap in the category of short film, but during 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. Nearby the competition and informational program we have plenty of festival screenings selections of film universities feature films film-and all-art workshops in the program.
