DECEMBER 2017Y.
close
On 9th December in Odeon Cinema we saw a fully digitized and restored copy of the film PIECES OF LOVE with director Ivan CHERKELOV from 1989.

This is the first Bulgarian film processed on the modern technologies for this process.The Bulgarian National Film and National Film Center supported the initiative, and the whole processing was done free of charge in Dolly Media Studio.

We thank Dobromir Chochov and his team.

Thanks also to the colleagues who embraced the idea and with their voluntary work helped to revive the film.

The process was produced by Ars Digitale Studio-Ivan Tonev ABO and supervised by Rali Ralchev ABO.

We hope that such a restoration will save the remaining thousands of films stored in the BNF and we alarm the responsible institutions.
