POLISH-BULGARIAN PROJECT AT THE SOFIA MEETINGS
The list of documentary film projects qualified for this year's edition of the Sofia Meetings has been announced. Among the selected submissions, there is the Polish-Bulgarian co-production "Love Land," directed by Victoria Marinov.
The Sofia Meetings is an international co-production market, held in the capital city of Bulgaria during the Sofia International Film Festival. This year's edition is held from the 8th to the 22nd of March.
The Sofia Meetings consist of two parts: of industry screenings, during which distributors, sales agents and representatives of festivals have an opportunity to watch the films which are currently being produced, and of pitching, at which the directors can present their new projects. The makers of the first, second or third film can participate in the pitchings.
The projects will be presented in four sections: Second Film Projects, Plus Minus One Projects, Projects in Bank and First Films First. The Polish-Bulgarian co-production is included in the section Projects in Bank.
The protagonist of "Love Land" is Viktoria, a Polish woman with Bulgarian roots, who sets out on a journey through the Balkans, in order to find out where does the magnetism, which brings people to the Bulgarian province comes from, the one to which she herself succumbs. "Love Land" is a feature-length hybrid project, developed with the support of the Polish Film Institute. The project has previously participated in the international programme Structural Constellations. Viktoria Marinov is responsible for the directing, Małgorzata Wabińska from Entertain Pictures is the creative producer.
The list of all selected projects can be found on the official website of the Sofia Meetings.
