First Annual San Francisco Bulgarian Film Festival

Six Brilliant Feature Films 

March 9-10, 2013

The inaugural San Francisco Bulgarian Film Festival will raise the curtains on March 9th and 10th, 2013 at the historic Brava Theater Center in the Mission District. The festival will feature a half-dozen Bulgarian feature films (three each day), with many making their West Coast premiere. The Sofia Independent Film Festival in Bulgaria and The San Francisco Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce are the presenters. Gourmet appetizers, beverages and premium Bulgarian wines will be available during intermissions between films.

"The selections for the SFBFF are some of the best films produced by Bulgarian filmmakers in recent years," says Artistic Director Jana Karaivanova, who also heads up the New York Bulgarian Film Festival, the Sofia Independent IFF and procured the films. "Bulgarian filmmaking has become quite prominent in recent years, with international recognition at major festivals like Cannes, Moscow and Berlin. These selections received high recognition in New York at the sold out screenings of the 8th NYBFF at the Tribeca Theater in Manhattan. We are sure you will enjoy them equally."

The films are in Bulgarian with English subtitles.
