Bulgaria internationally recognized movie to possibly participate in Oscars

Date: 21.09.2008

The Bulgarian Movie Dsift of the renowned Bulgarian director Yavor Gurdev, who has already won the Best Director award at the Moscow Film Festival, has been selected as the Bulgarian title to participate in the Oscar nominations.

The movie has also been nominated for the European Film Association awards. It will be several months before it becomes clear if Dsift is going to be nominated to compete in the "foreign film" category at the Oscars.

In the upcoming months, the movie is also going to participate in several prestigious international film festivals in Australia, Argentina, Sweden, Iceland and Germany.

Dsift, featuring the actor Zahari Bakalov and model turned actress Tanya Ilieva is considered to be one of the best Bulgarian movies made during the last several years. The premiere of the film in Bulgaria is scheduled for September 26.

After the movie's success in Moscow, four film distribution companies have asked for rights to present the movie in Russian movie theaters. A US producing company has contacted the team with an offer to create an American version and remake of Dsift.

The Director Yavor Gurdev admits that he is a little bit nervous about the way the Bulgarian audience was going to accept the movie and is awaiting the premiere with anticipation.

"Most likely, people will be divided in their opinions if the film is worth something or not. I believe, however, that for Bulgaria, this is not only a movie about history or for entertainment. This is a movie about our common past and mostly about out common present," Gurdev has stated.
