Bulgarian Bliss

Family & Education

The Bulgarian Bliss is a screening event that presents a national cinema to an international audience.

The Bulgarian Bliss is a screening event that presents a national cinema to an international audience. It aims to explore the boundaries of filmmaking in a country where the concepts of visual culture are gradually advancing, and the latest generation of young creatives explore new and untouched artistic grounds.

The programme presents three Bulgarian short films. The common trait all three have is the constant search for a sense of belonging and the unsure perception of reality in a post-communist territory. The stories that are beautifully unfolding introduce strong characters with a certain dis-ease of the self, caused by the extreme social circumstances that accompany their daily lives.

The whole event has a 2-hour duration, as the screenings are 1h 19mins and the following discussion panel will be around 30 minutes. Chris Zahariev (director of Wild Garlic) will be present at the event as the main guest for the Q&A. He will not only talk about his film but will also focus on the neglected topic of being an emerging artist in a country with an influential Soviet past.

Please join us after for a drinks reception in the Dark Room Bar.
