Friss Hús

Daazo - the European Shortfilm Centre proudly presents the 3rd edition of the Friss Hús International Shortfilm Festival, which will take place at the end of March 2015 in Budapest, Hungary. The success of the last two years made it possible for Friss Hús to become one of the most important shortfilm events in Hungary.
 
The long term plan of the organisers of Friss Hús is to make sure that the event becomes an internationally acclaimed festival where the audience can watch entertaining and colourful short film selections and where the filmmakers can meet important professionals from the film industry as well as attend special workshops.
 
The animated and live fiction films can be submitted to Friss Hús until 31th December 2014. The maximum length of the films cannot exceed 30 minutes.
 
This year  - because over the last two years we received so many great films - we decided to separate the awards into three sections: Hungarian live fiction, Hungarian animated short film, and international live action&animation.

We hope to see you in Budapest at the Friss Hús screenings, for an all night long party or at one of the festival's professional events! We are looking for short films that were made with passion, a huge dose of creativity and an eye for innovation and quality. Be unique!
