MOME Media Nights presents BEST OF 9TH BUSHO 2013

Established in 2004 by a group of young Hungarian filmmakers, originally BuSho aimed at filling a gap in the category of short film in Hungary, but it soon became an international film festival presenting shorts from all around the world.

The selection based on the 2013 festival screenings was put together especially for MOME Media Nights by Tamás Gábeli, curator of BuSho who will personally participate in the event and is happy to answer the questions of the audience after the 70 minute screening.

Even though in 2013 there were several MOME Anim winners, the present selection contains other films, as the MOME films have been screened several times at the university or at events organized by it.

Date: 24th March 2014 (Monday), 18:00-19:40
Venue: Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest, Auditorium
(1121 Budapest, Zugligeti út 9-25.)

The event on Facebook.

The films are either English speaking or are screened with English subtitles!
