ScripTeast Winning Team Nabs IPDF Project Prize with Dora


    SOFIA: Feature film project Dora, co-written by Milko Lazarov and Simeon Ventislavov and produced by Sofia based Red Carpet was chosen as “best project“ by the International Project Discovery Forum, the main industry programme of the Los Angeles Greek Film Festival. Earlier in this year,the same writing team won the prestigious Krzysztof Kieslowski ScripTeast award in Cannes with their project Nanook, also produced by Red Carpet.

    Producer Veselka Kiryakova told FNE that Dora, which is in early development, is about an 80-year-old actress, who finds herself in a tense emotional triangle with a younger couple of actors.

    According to Lazarov and Ventislavov “the project was inspired by the play Portrait of a Madonna by Tennessee Williams.
