DANUBE – Europe’s Blue Line – a documentary series about a cult river on the millennium. In the history of Europe crucial things had happened along the DANUBE, however Johann Strauss was either colorblind or in love when composing the Blue DANUBE as the river’s source is in the Black Forrest and flows into the Black Sea. Is it really blue in between? We’ll find out now.
It is a new film project made in co-production by Gombolyag Foundation and Balassi Institute in the frame of the current Hungarian EU-presidency and will be screened in the following locations: Bucharest, Balchik, Bratislava, Belgrade, Zagreb, Ljubljana and Budapest at the BuSho short film festival. The so called joy therapy will include a short prologue followed by the screening of the finalist shorts of „Are we Europeans!?” and selected award winning shorts in the topic of Danube, Water, Environment.
Next location is BELGRADE in cooperation with the Media Education Centre and new Belgrade ECO multimedia festival “Danube FEST”, project Media Education Centre developing with support of the “Stari Grad” Belgrade Municipality and Lions Club International “Stari Grad”…
The pre-jury had the toughest job ever in the festival’s history as they counted from 55 countries 962 entries. This amount of shortfilms is unique in Hungary. So we are pleased to announce that the 7th BuSho International Short Film Festival’s competition program is lined up and contains 93 shorts in total including 65 fiction, 16 animation and 12 experimental works. By the statistics it isn’t a surprise that the most entries made it to the competition are from Spain. There will be a Panorama section again where we’ll show those works just missed the competition and also all the received Hungarian shorts will be screened, to make everyone an opportunity for their work to be shown. So we’d like to ask all the filmmakers to post their copy by 15. July the latest with the following technical parameters: PAL SD 16:9 (or 4:3 but please not letterbox) on MiniDV tape (SP, DVCAM) or data DVD (AVI, MOV, MPEG2 MP4).

The quality of media will survive
Derrick de Kerchove: “Print media won’t die”
The future of print media, and journalism as we know it, were among the issues discussed during the last international journalism festival in Perugia. More than one hundred famous journalists from all over the world joined to look into the most successful solutions for the survival of journalism, and above all of print media, which have been declining in the last couple of years.
Arab television, Al Jazeera (which became one of the most famous TV stations in the world over the last years) sees the future of journalism – or at least its revival – in the Creative Commons license. During a debate at the Festival, Moeed Ahmad, head of the New Media department of the station, insisted on fact that some news (in particular those that deal with war issues) must reach as broad an audience as possible. That’s why it is necessary that the public should be given the chance not just to follow but also to share the news – articles with as many people as possible. “Creative Commons” represents the best solution to this end, since it allows everyone to use news reports and place them in any kind of context under just one condition: the logo of the television that has given the first account must appear on the mentioned report.
