The Road to Passion Is the Big Winner of BEAUTIFUL DOBRICH 48-Hour Movie Challenge
At an official ceremony Petar Enev with Dobrich Municipality handed the Lime team casting Angel Genkov, Yavor Minchev, Kolyo Kolev and Mihail Ivanov the first prize for The Road to Passion movie. The event took place during the celebrations of the Day of Dobrich following a 48-hour contest to deliver short movies which demonstrate the town’s potential for artistic projects.
The winning movie tells the story of a young man in a quest for the history and significance of a photograph he comes upon in the local library next to an envelope…
The first 48-hour movie marathon BEAUTIFUL DOBRICH which was organized by the Municipality of Dobrich and CastFolio – the Bulgarian online platform for the entertainment industry, attracted 45 applicants which formed five teams after the jury’s selection. Between 21-23 September they had to shoot, edit and present their short movies following predefined topics. The winning teams Lime, Latte and Sapphire are to decide how to split the prize fund of BGN 2750.
All movies will be accessible at www.filmchallenge.eu after 5 October 2018.
BEAUTIFUL DOBRICH movie challenge was also initiated by GlobalDobrich – a conceptual online platform for creating a global community of Bulgarians in the country and abroad who are related to Dobrich. ‘This a truly inspiring event for us because it demonstrates the potential of our town for a great place to live, work and create. We are happy that after the Farmers’ Fair this is the second tangible result of our forums and other activities we organize in the name of Dobrich,’ shared Plamen Peev, coordinator, GlobalDobrich.
The organizers also remind that the winning three productions will be shown at a series of film festivals in the country as well as presented at Berlinale International Film Festival in 2019.
