Tamás Gábeli - I awaked to my consciousness during international saunters in the second half of the nineties and I got into the labyrinth of the visual culture – about which I thought I was interested only in the documentarist part, but after a while I realized: the youngest branch of the fine arts was much more complex. Bakerman, office-worker, solar-factorist, longshoreman, gardener, cabinetmaker, hobby-fillmmaker, cinema technician, adman… And by rousing on the failures of my own films I took up international shorts at the millenary. Nowadays daddy of 2 kids, BioGroup assistant, and the director of the BuSho International Short Film Festival.
