In October, we presented a film cycle of the Official Competition of the 15th Edition of the Busho International Short Film Festival of Budapest – Hungary, which took place from 27 August to 01 September 2019.
This program includes films by Hungarian women filmmakers who were in competition at the festival and awarded Best Animation – Students Comp., Media Council Special Awards for the best Hungarian fiction and animation films.
This is the second cycle that we do as a result of this partnership between PORTO FEMME and BUSHO – BUDAPEST SHORT FILM FESTIVAL. The festival was held for the first time in 2004, at the hands of a group of young filmmakers who wanted to address the shortage of short films in Hungary. The festival has been growing gradually from year to year.
Porto Femme Sessions are thematic cycles in which the common denominator is films directed by women. The objective is to give visibility to the work of women in the film industry, through the projection of their works and, whenever possible, their presence in the sessions, promoting the encounter between the public and the authors.
