JAN BUDAŘ - CV
Jan Budař was born in Frýdlant in 31. 7. 1977 and graduated from Brno´s Janacek Academy of Performing Arts ( JAMU ) in 2001 [2000].
He started his career in Brno's theatres under the tutelage of Vladimir Morávek, one of the most acclaimed Czech theatre directors. This creative partnership culminated in their first film BORED IN BRNO (2002)[2003], Jan's film debut for which he also co-authored the script and composed the music. The comedy was awarded five Czech Lions in 2003, including Best Male Actor for Jan Budař. This success led to roles in such films as Marek Najbrt's debut CHAMPIONS (2004) and Jan Hřebejk's recent UP AND DOWN (2004), the Czech entry for the Academy Awards, which won the top awards at the Czech Lions Awards 2005. Currently, the team of Morávek and Budař are creating their second film HRUBEŠ AND MAREŠ BEST FRIENDS: COME RAIN OR SHINE.
Having achieved his first life's ambition of acting on screen, he has only two more: playing alongside Audrey Tatou in a film directed by Pedro Almodóvar and touring with his band "The Band of           Shy Elise". Besides acting, writing, composing and singing with his band, Jan also makes his own short films, documentaries and videoclips.
In March 2005, Jan won the Czech Lion award for "Best Supporting Actor" in CHAMPIONS.
In February 2005 Jan was sent to Berlin as a SHOOTING STAR to represent Czech cinemathography at the Berlinale Film Festival 2005.
