'Friss Hús' International Short Film Festival, Budapest, Until 5 June
The Friss Hús International Short Film Festival showcases hundreds of the best Hungarian and foreign short films. In addition to screenings, the festival offers film workshops, panel discussions, and talks for the audience.

"Good Hungarian short films are always being made, regardless of whether they receive state support or any kind of help. There is an amazing creative power in filmmaking talent, and this is what our festival has been trying to showcase every year since its inception.

This is why we strive to create the most colorful and exciting environment, with international films, guests, smart and entertaining specializations, and outdoor cinema. Each year, we expand our reach. This year, for the first time, we are offering a national reach with screenings held simultaneously in three major university cities: Debrecen, Pécs, and Szeged," said Dániel Deák, founder and director of the festival, in a magyarnarancs.hu interview.

In addition to the Hungarian short film premieres and the international competition programme, special genre and auteur films will also be screened in the thematic sub-sections of Friss Hús.

The @Midnight section will feature horror films, Weirdcore will present unique, bizarre, and entertaining films, and the Queer Dreams selection will showcase films about the LGBTQ community.

Baltic Focus will screen ten Latvian, Lithuanian, and Estonian short films in two blocks (Lost Souls and The Last Drop), while the Műfajra magyar! block will feature genre experiments by Hungarian directors.

The full festival program is available on the Friss Hús website.

Tickets for the screenings can be purchased on the Puskin Cinema website and Tixa.

All films are screened in the original language with English subtitles.
