TRADITION OF ANIMATION AND HISTORY  
SHORT PRESENTATION OF THE HISTORY OF ANIMATION IN MAXIMUM 500 CHARACTERS (for example main awards and authors, important milestones, trends...)  Some researchers like Nadejda Marinchevska state that 1915 is the birth year of the Bulgarian animated cinema. The 80's were its strongest period.The 1984 film by Slav Bakalov "Mariage"  won the Best animation award in Cannes. The production of animated films in Bulgaria in the 1980s has doubled since the 1970s. An apotheosis of its success is the nomination for Student Oscar for "The Canfilm", created by Zlatin Radev. The last great success of an animator from the native animation school is Teo Ushev's achievement in the Oscar prize competition in 2017.
