Eighteen million additional levs for the film industry were approved by the Council of Ministers at a meeting on November 17, 2021. Ten million of them are for the creation, distribution, festivals and promotion of films, and BGN 8 million will be used to reimburse the costs of foreign producers in Bulgaria.
This money can be used in 2022. This stipulation is important because the technological time for conducting additional sessions for Bulgarian cinema until the end of 2021 is insufficient. The National Film Center is already meeting art committees, which must determine which feature, documentary and animated film projects will receive funding.
