What a wonderful initiative to promote Bulgarian cinema in France. At Madame Bulgaria’s, we are 100% in love with this kind of initiative, which promote the Bulgarian country elsewhere, beyond its borders. Because the country deserves, Five young Bulgarians from a wide variety of backgrounds decided, 2 years ago, to act and found the Bulgarian Film Festival in France.
First Boryana, fished in a group of the Bulgarian community in Paris … then Dessi, who met Ivo at random … Motivated by his endless stories, Tsveti and Eleonora, two friends of Boryana wished to be grafted to the project … Finally Julia, a friend to Dess has joined the team and is for the moment the relay of the initiative in Bulgaria, in contact with Bulgarian film news … People from completely different backgrounds, gathered around a single thing : their love for Bulgaria ! We will return to their story and idea of the Bulgarian Film Festival as part of a future article.
In early 2017, they set themselves the challenge of creating an annual meeting with the desire to promote the works of young Bulgarian talents abroad.
