For two years now the American independent film finds a home in Sofia, Bulgaria every fall during Sofia Independent Film Festival. And this February we are bringing the best of Bulgarian cinema to New York City for the eight edition of the NY-Bulgarian Film Festival.
It had been our mission for years to create a platform where talented people and filmmakers from both sides of the Atlantic can come together and get to know each other. The stories they tell us in their films broaden our minds, they inspire and eventually connect us. It is just a fortunate coincidence that the festival's abbreviation spells BFF. Best Friends Forever is what we hope to become through sharing stories with each other.
Founder and Festival Director
The desire of the foundation America for Bulgaria is to present to the Bulgarian audience the possibility to get to know the nontraditional side of the American culture. We hope that Sofia Independent Film Festival will break the clichés. American cinema is not only in Hollywood and the bridges are not only in Madison County. In this case the bridges connect the two cultures in a very pleasant and accessible way. In cinema a film frame tells more than a thousand words. Enjoy!
