The Festival is organized by “Artin Vision” Ltd in the person of Aleksandar Nikolov as a separate independent part of Sofia Film Fest. In most of the cases, the program runs parallel to the basic Festival in Sofia and contains a representative extract from the most intriguing titles, competing for prizes.


Apart from the projections, there are realized special initiatives as well, addressing high school and university students, as well as discussions, concerts and film programs with the participation of author teams.


It is held in the Festival and Congress Center.
