The initial name of the Festival was “World Cinepanorama”. The first edition was in the period 20 – 30 November 1987 in the National Palace of Culture “Lyudmila Zhivkova”, today National Palace of Culture. Later all films from the program of the Cinepanorama were distributed in the whole network of cinemas in the country. 


The Panorama includes representative works from all over the world, a large part of which have been awarded at the most prestigious film festivals and today they have turned into classical works of the seventh art. During the last few years the Festival program has been enriched with children’s films, culinary and music films, autobiographical and documentary projections, Festival of the French Cinema.


The projections are in the Festival and Congress Center.
