Bulgaria’s capital city, Sofia, with its wealth of ancient history, spectacular scenery and a rich and varied cinematic landscape is encouraging and an ever-growing number of filmmakers around the world to discover what makes Bulgaria special.
Easy access with short direct flights from all the European capitals and beyond. With superb locations, world-class expertise and very low operational costs Bulgaria is the complete package.
Four seasons, one location: Bulgaria has a continental climate characterised by four well-defined seasons: white, snowy winter; fresh and blossomy spring; warm sunny summer and rainy golden-leafed autumn.
HISTORICAL, INSTITUTIONAL AND INDUSTRIAL SETS AND LOCATIONS
Bulgaria has a huge variety of urban settings and locations, with buildings ranging from grand and ancient to extremely modern, all within or near to Sofia. The sheer diversity, coupled with our experience in obtaining filming permission, gives a competitive edge on most other European countries.
RICH AND VARIED NATURAL SCENERY
Streets and cities can be built on the lot, but mountains and forests are much more cost-effective if they occur naturally. The wooded mountainside of Vitosha rises up behind the lot to a spectacular height of 2,895m and Bulgaria has crystal clear rivers and lakes, lush green fields stretching out across the midlands and spectacular sandy beaches merging with idyllic views of the picturesque Black Sea. All this beauty is within a relatively small area, with nothing more than a five-hour drive away, helping to keep logistics simple and costs down.
WORLD FILM-MAKING EXPERTISE
Bulgaria’s long and vibrant heritage with more than 50 years of film-making means they have developed an internationally respected team of English-speaking, highly experienced and motivated professionals, skilled in every aspect of the film-making process, from set design to filming, logistics and post-production.
