Flóra Anna Buda’s short film entitled 27 is set to compete at the Cannes Film Festival this year, according to an article by filmtekercs.hu.
The 11 films selected for the competition’s short film program were picked from some 4,200. The short film section in Cannes will be chaired by renown Hungarian director Ildikó Enyedi.
The Hungarian director’s entry, a 11-minute short film, is a French-Hungarian co-production using animation techniques. Buda graduated in 2018 from the MOME‘s animation direction program; her graduation film “Entropy” won the Teddy Award at the 2019 Berlinale.
Her new short film stars 27-year-old Alíz, who still lives with her parents. On her birthday, during a night of intoxication, she realizes that it’s time to say goodbye to illusions and live in the reality around her.
After Cannes, 27 will be screened at the world’s most prestigious animation film festival in Annecy on June 27. It will also be screened in Hungary at the Friss Hús Budapest International Short Film Festival, running between June 1-7.
The short film was produced by the French Miyu and Hungarian Boddah companies, produced by Emmanuel-Alain Raynal, Pierre Baussaron, Gábor Osváth, and Péter Benjámin Lukács (the latter is also the sound engineer of the film), with music by Mári Mákó and Rozi Mákó.
