Bush’s film Vultures of Tibet (Mountainfilm 2013) was nominated for an International Documentary Association Award for Best Short and a Student Academy Award. The film screened throughout the United States, Europe and Asia and was regarded by Hitfix.com as "Remarkable depth of interpretation, as anthropological observation gives way to sobering socio-political commentary."
