Daazo – the European Shortfilm Centre proudly presents the fourth edition of the Friss Hús Budapest International Shortfilm Festival, which will take place from 29th of March, until the 3rd of April 2016 in Budapest, Hungary.


The success of the last three years made it possible for Friss Hús to become one of the most important shortfilm events in Hungary.

Our long term plan 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 best international film will be awarded with a cash prize of €1,000. Several other valuable prizes will be given out too – for example to the winner of the National Competition and Best Hungarian Animation.

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!
