Open Air

It is exciting to watch the festival films open air in amphitheaters of Smolyan.

The ancient home of the mythical poet Orpheus is situated in the south of Bulgaria and spreads its slopes as far as the Aegean Sea. The festival town Smolyan lies at its heart, close to our neighbors Greece and Turkey – the perfect setting for a festival devoted to the common ground between filmmakers in these three countries. The creative, contemporary documentaries emerging from these communities are linked by many themes. A festival bringing them together will reveal how much we share a common world.
