MISSION

MASTER OF ART FILM FESTIVAL

Master of Art is the first international Film Festival on the Balkans for art documentaries. Presenting the best documentaries produced and released after 1.1.2015 in the field of music and dance, theatre and cinema, visual arts and photography, architecture and design, and literature, the MofA Film Festival aims to introduce the contemporary trends to the Bulgarian audience.

The mission of MofA Film Festival is to provide an alternative that defies pop culture content by presenting documentaries – independent films and television productions, to create a venue for professionals in the field of documentary, music, dance, theatre, visual arts, photography, architecture and literature to meet and contribute to mutual dialogue and cooperation. To establish itself as a forum that provides an opportunity for young art school talents to further develop and stimulate their creative performance.

  • Master of Art Film Festival is organised by: Spotlight production company, The National Palace of Culture and “Master of Art” foundation.
  • The festival funds are raised by participation fees, financial subsidies, donations, sponsorship and advertising.
