BUÉK – A collaborative documentary about Hungary

HNY is an observational documentary designed to interlink stories of characters who would otherwise never meet in real life. The last day of the year is a perfect opportunity to connect people from different generations, social classes and sub-cultures. The film offers a colorful tableau of a modern society by following the stories of a diverse cast of characters on New Year’s Eve.


12 professional crews followed 12 different characters for 24 hours during thelast and the first day of the year. Widening the scope of traditional documentaryfilmmaking, we created an opportunity for integrating user submitted contentthrough an open call for submissions.

Fortunately a big buzz has been created around the project in Hungary.We had more than 120 press releases (including 6 of the leading TV channels)from November 2013 to January 2014. We’ve received more than 800 files (ca. 40hours) from the participants. Overall we have more than 100 hours of footage,entirely shot on the 31st of december and 1st of January.
