GRANTS: Bulgaria Announces Production Grants


    SOFIA: The Bulgarian National Film Center has allocated 2,435,000 EUR to six feature film projects in the first production call of 2023. The grants have not been distributed because of an ongoing court appeal.

    The biggest amounts were granted to two projects based on contemporary Bulgarian novels: Chamkoria directed by Victor Bojinov and produced by Talent Partners, and Porazeni directed by Peter Popzlatev and produced by Gala Film. The new project by Zornitsa Sophia was also chosen to receive support.

    Among the six feature film projects backed for production, two are debut features.

    Additionally, four short films received 160,000 EUR for production and eight projects received script development support of 120,000 EUR.

    The grants were announced on 21 June 2023.
