Szabolcs Hajdu’s latest received the Golden Reel award on Monday as the annual showcase of local cinema came to a close.

Bibliothèque Pascal, which screens next week at the Berlinale Forum, concerns a young, single mother’s bizarre adventures, from Romania to Liverpool, in an effort to provide for her child. With surreal set pieces and a magical plot, Szabolcs Hajdu’s new film bears little resemblance to his 2006 White Palms.

Bibliothèque Pascal also won the the Best Cinematography prize for Andras Nagy (White Palms, Johanna) and the Gene Moskowitz Prize, awarded by foreign film critics at the festival.

Question In Details was also a big winner in Budapest, earning Zsombor Dyga the Best Director award, which he shared ex aequo with Robert Pejo for The Camera Murderer. Dyga’s film further won Best Actor (Ferenc Elek), Best Editing (Judit Czako) and the People’s Choice Award.

Among other awards at Hungarian Film Week, Eva Vica Kerekes was named Best Actress for her role in Out/In Tawaret and Jozsef Pacskovszky won Best Screenplay for The Days Of Desire.
