Initially presenting a panorama of independent American cinema, today the festival offers a great selection of European, Bulgarian, American and world cinema. Supports mainly the young and independent Bulgarian cinema. In 2019, the European dimension of the festival will be even stronger, and our efforts will be to present the Bulgarian film industry in its European context as one of the most rapidly and successfully developing ones at the moment. The focus of our efforts will be to give Sofia, as a creative city of cinema, a European festival of independent cinema and culture.

October 26 - Saint Demetrios of Thessaloniki (Dimitrovden/ Dimitar’s Day)

On October 26, the Orthodox Church honors Saint Demetrios of Thessaloniki (aka Dimitrovden/ Dimitar’s Day). Protector of Christians, St Demetrios was called Myrrh-streamer because after he was killed in 306 his remains emitted strongly scented liquid myrrh. His relics also have miraculous power. Saint Demetrios is one of the most revered saints and is presented as an older brother to Saint George. People say that while St George brings the summer, St Demetrius brings the winter. As a harbinger of winter and cold weather, the saint is linked with the world of the dead. It is considered that after this feast the traditional period for seasonal workers – shepherds and farmhands, comes to an end.
There should be poultry dishes and vegetables on the table on Dimitrovden.
Dimitar, Dimitrina, Mitko, Mityo, Dimo, Dimcho, Dimka, Dimana, etc. celebrate their name day on this date.
