„A Captain at Fifteen”: BUSHO ENTRIES 2019!

After closing of last year’s archiving, registration opens for next year’s 15th BuSho Festival. According to modern time challenges you can enter on our online submission platform which went again through some minor changes that can be red in our terms&conditions. Basically we expect shorts of fiction, animation and experimental that are made after 1-January-2017 and with length of maximum of 30 minutes. Beside the refreshed own platform we reduced alternatives of submissions, filmfreeway, reelport and festhome will remain. The most important deadlines are listed on our website! We’d like to ask all subscribers to regularly check their spam folder of mailing system and if you made your entry please remember the date 15th June. If you do not receive acknowledgement of your submission, please take a look on our website where all results will also be displyed.   

BuSho (Budapest Short) was established in the autumn of 2004 by a group of young Hungarian filmmakers and the first event successfully ran its course the following year. The festival became an international breakthrough in an exceptionally short period of time: we got 630 individual entries from 62 countries in 2008. We had plenty of festival screenings, selections of film academys, feature films, conferences, film-, and all-art workshops in the program.


BuSho (Budapest Short) Calling for Shorts




BuSho (Budapest Short) was established in the autumn of 2004 by a group of young Hungarian filmmakers and the first event successfully ran its course the following year. The festival became an international breakthrough in an exceptionally short period of time. We had plenty of festival screenings, selections of film academys, conferences, exhibitions, film-, and all-art workshops in the program. Our main target group is the generation of developing young filmmakers but we are very delighted at every entry. This film celebration takes place in Budapest in the late summer of 2014.


You can enter in three categories: fiction, animation and experimental.

Duration: maximum 30 minutes!

Submitted films should have been produced after the 1st of January 2012!

ENTRY FEE: 5,- euro / shortfilm

ONLINE ENTRY OPENING: 1st December 2013.

DEADLINE: 30th April 2014.


We accept online entries only to register for pre-jurying, except those studios, schools, workshops or agencies that enter 5 or more shorts! In this case they can decide to send the films online or collected on one DVD.



The followings are requested with the entry form filled in:

- entry form filled on the BuSho website!

- UPLOAD your film for the pre-jury on the BuSho website!

Format: mpeg4 / 720x576 PAL 25 fps / 48kHz 16bit stereo

- all films must have english subtitles: subtitles included (burned in / not optional)


If the pre-jury selects the entered production then we will ask for the screening copy. If the film selected in competition, the creator of the film + 1 more person will be invited to the festival. Applications of other filmmaking workshops and festival organizers are also appreciated whose most successful films or a “Best Of” selection can be sent to the festival and also to the conference. If a filmmaker community applies, food and accommodation is provided for the group leaders and 1 more person. To avoid any inconvenience coming from last minute cancellation, all the guests are asked to pay an accreditation fee, which is a symbolic amount, but includes all the costs for the whole week (reservation of room, meals and all the programs). Please send the flight reservation as well as the proof of the transaction!

Deadline: 1 August 2014!
