Sofia MENAR Film Festival
The Festival was created after the initiative of the Association “Disgrace”. Its first name was “The Flowers of the Koran” (2009 – 2012). The content of the program acquaints the Bulgarian public with the culture and traditions of the Islamic world: feature, documentary and short films.
The event is held in Sofia, and during its first year of existence it realized an edition in Varna – in the Club “Comics” /the former cinema “Georgi Dimitrov”/, and since 2013 in the Festival and Congress Center. The acronym MENAR comes from the name with which the countries of this region identify themselves as one whole – Middle East and North Africa Region.
In Varna the hosts of the Festival after 2013 are also Art “In the Dark” and Gallery “Arhis”.
