Filmmakers' Challenge in Dobrich

The minicipality of Dobrich and CastFolio challenged filmmakers to create films in 48 hours. We chose and supported five teams in the creative process to produce shorts, based on a number of preset keywords. See the Rules »



Send us info about yourself and tell us if you are applying alone or as part of a team up to 4 people. We will choose 5 teams, which we will support with accommodation, catering and filming gear.


Make a film

The assembled teams accept the challenge to write a script, shoot a beautiful story, edit with sound and finish all that in 48 hours!


Win awards

The three awarded films will be screened on the holiday of the city on the 25-th of September, as well as a series of festivals in Bulgaria and will be presented at Berlinale in February 2019.

The locations

In the Gallery page you can see different areas of  Dobrich and its surroundings, where you can shoot your stories during the challenge. Some of them will definitely look different, but the city’s park, the ethnographic complex and all other locations offer wonderful open spaces, in which you can unfold your captivating story.
