The award of the city of Szeged was given to Martin Helstáb at the Zsigmond Vilmos International Film Festival, where over 400 works were screened. The student of Kaposvár University participated in the festival with his short film 'The Mouse who wanted to be a mouse'.
Zsigmond Vilmos International Film Festival was founded to commemorate the Oscar-winning Hungarian director of photography. The aim of the festival is to provide opportunity for talented young filmmakers, similarly to Vilmos Zsigmond, who also helped the career of younger colleagues.
This year almost four hundred films were included in the program, much more than last year. The productions came from all over the world to compete for the prize. The main prize of the festival was awarded to the British short movie titled 'The Voice', while the Szeged City Prize was given to the student of Kaposvár University, Martin Helstáb.
The short film tells the story of a computer mouse, who, having been replaced with another, starts off a new life in the nature as a real mouse. The jury was impressed by the unique imagery and experimental techniques of the movie, as well as the creative power of the idea and the inspiring conceptual background.
Two weeks ago, the talented young artist won one of the main prizes at the Cegléd Film Festival for another work of his own, titled 'You must die'.

Deadline of submission: 10 october 2016
Youngsters who participated in the events that time are old people today; they might have told their personal stories to their children and grandchildren. Those however, who are not affected by their relatives, learn about the events from history books or can be informed by the help of contemporary photos. The political changes that happened in Hungary since then make it possible for us to commemorate this outstanding time in our history, these pivotal October days. In 2016, at the 60th anniversary, Kaposvár wishes to testify its beliefs in freedom this way. A ceremony will be held to explore the past, giving the events new colours, passing our thoughts to the next generation. For a long time people had to stay quiet and the truth had to be kept hidden about the cause of the revolution, and about the things people, had to go through. They were not afraid of reprisal, were not frightened by the repression; they were doing what they felt to be correct. They had only one goal, the freedom. Many were swept away by the stormy events of the revolution, people had to make sacrifices, and the years coming were not free from the terrors either. People living today also have a big responsibility for the future. The way our fate is formed depends on us, it is on us what we hand down, whether we have the courage to tell the truth, and the intention to do something to keep our freedom and keep it for our children, for the next generation.
