Bulgarian Animated Films – From Its Beginning To The Future

 

Bulgarian animation has more than 60 years of history. During this period of time many artists dedicate their talent and life

to the development of this entirely new form of visual art.

Officially Bulgarian animation industry is born on October 1948, when following an administrative decision a special

department of cartoon and puppet film comes into being as part of the Bulgarian State Film Industry.

During the first decade of the new age some new and young authors make their first steps. The magnificent films of Kalina Vutova, Vessela Dancheva or Velislava Gospodinova are awarded at many festivals around the world.

n spite of the difficulties, Bulgarian animated films continue the tradition of the pioneers of the glorious years of the past.
