The Balkan Documentary Center is many things. On the outside, it is an old three-storey pharmaceutical lab in the center of Sofia that is turning into a place for distilling documentaries. It’s a house with a garden, editing rooms, a screening room, a video library, a café and a lot of space for creative ideas. And we would love to hear from you about how to use all of this.
On the inside, it is a network of Balkan filmmakers, a place for inventing, training, development and collaboration. It’s a house with many doors that are open for Balkan filmmakers. Into the brave new world, of course.”
