A film that the Bulgarian audience had eagerly anticipated is called "Petya na moyata Petya". It has been on screen since the beginning of the year and continues to attract viewers not only in this country but also abroad. It is dedicated to the talented poetess Petya Dubarova, whose work continues to captivate generations of young Bulgarians although she left this world at the age of 17. The film has recently received yet another recognition from the Francofilm Festival in Rome, where the Bulgarian movie won the audience award. 18 films from different countries took part in the official selection of the festival, and "Petya na moyata Petya" was the only one from Bulgaria. The film is currently on a world tour among Bulgarian communities abroad in the cities of Cologne, Hamburg, Madrid and Malaga.
