It is the first Bulgarian production in the history of the festival, and will be competing for the award in the book-to-movie category. The foreign film productions include Albert Dupontel’s “See you up there” with 5 César awards, Eric Barbier’s “Promise at Dawn”, based on Romain Gary’s memoir, the American production based on the play by Anton Chekhov “The Seagull”, adapted by film director Michael Mayer.
