Festival: tbc - probably in 2019
Set in Ruse (aka Rousse) Bulgaria - a town on the River Danube the
festival is held every second year (last held in 2017). The very broad
theme is PANTA REI - EVERYTHING FLOWS - just as the great Danube river
flows by the town, marking the border between Bulgaria and Romania.
There is no limit on length, genre or technique. Entries on DVD
or memory stick in MPEG2 or MPEG4. The only important thing is for the
movies to be non-commercial, to support the universal values and to be
nice. An expert pre-selection panel will choose which of the entries
will be screened. Each one chosen secures its maker or his/her
representative: hotel, food and access to all events during the
festival. The authors will receive information from the organizers
within two weeks.
There are no festival taxes, and the events from the cultural
programme and the closing cocktail are covered by the organizers.
(From Britain, you fly to Bucharest in Romania - it is a 30Km run by
bus/taxi from there over the border bridge to Rousse.) Events include
outings, banquets, workshops and discussions. You will eat and drink a
No entry fee or even forms. Write or email your intention to enter
include information about: the name, length and type of digital
carrier of the film, name and address of the author and if s/he will
come to Bulgaria.
Come along if you can. The friendly festival team arrange for students
to translate into excellent English.
