This year CineLibri is looking for awesome short movies connected in some way to a literary work.

Why should be part of our festival?
Proven to be the world’s first international book&movie festival, CineLibri is an extraordinary annual event, inspired by the fruitful interaction of arts – cinema and literature, in particular. It is held in Sofia and other district centres in Bulgaria every autumn, and shows the best examples of film adaptations based on significant literary works, both contemporary and classic. The festival is an extremely important, independent showcase for high-quality European film productions and co-productions.

CineLibri encompasses official selection of competing films, parallel programme of films out of competition and a number of educational events, literary presentations, various panel discussions, workshops, masterclasses etc.

From the very beginning, CineLibri is an attractive venue for a number of educational modules, e.g. book presentations and lectures, panel discussions with visiting experts, masterclasses and workshops, open meetings and various free events with the participation of special guests of the festival. Meetings with established European creators and talented young professionals and all the accompanying events with dignified speakers and guests aim at promoting Europe’s cultural heritage and contemporary European cinema and literature.

We are about to select the most exciting movies and they will be screened during a special ceremony which will take place in Lumiere Cinema in Sofia, Bulgaria. The big winner receives a money prize of 1000 euro.
