Together with Foundation America for Bulgaria we would like to present you a new, different and fresh festival, the festival of the American independent cinema. Independent people look alike all over the world and the language of cinema has the ability to bring them closer the fastest. With this festival we would like to throw a bridge over the Atlantic and to immerse in one week Sofia film enthusiasts in the world of independent filmmakers from the USA – classics and beginners.
In the selection of the festival you will see the best from the two iconic American festivals – The Sundance Film Festival (of Robert Redford) and The Tribeca Film Festival (of Robert De Niro), as well as winners of The Academy Awards and hits from Berlinale.
American independent cinema is not financed by corporations and is free in its artistic choices. You will see films different from one another but all surprising and inspiring. Welcome to our festival!
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!
