VARNA: Ivaylo Hristov’s feature film Losers took three awards including Best Film at the 33rd Golden Rose Film Festival. The Bulgarian Critics Guild also awarded his ironical black and white “provincial anecdote" and Elena Telbis, the young lead in the film, was named Best Actress.

This is the second important recognition for Losers after receiving the Golden George and the Russian Film Critics Prize at the 37th Moscow International Film Festival.

The Golden Rose festival was held 6-11 October in Varna. Thirteen feature films and 17 shorts produced during the last year competed in two official programmes.

Hristo Simeonov’s The Son, produced by Trivium Films and Dimitar Kutmanov’s Ecce Homo, produced by Screen Academy Scotland received the Golden Rose award for shorts ex aequo.

While Aya Was Sleeping by Tsvetodar MarkovSvetla Tsotsorkova’s Thirst produced by Front Film impressed the jury with its “vivid, original and memorable story”, winning Best debut. Veselin Hristov who shot the film received the Best DoP award. Ivan Cherkelov’s Family Relics, produced by Gala Film was awarded by the town of Varna and the Union of the Bulgarian Film Makers. The jury underlined the director’s “dedication to perfectionism”. Stefan Denolyubov’s first lead role in Tsvetodar Markov’s While Aya Was Sleeping produced by Filmarc brought him the Best Actor award. The jury appreciated his “multi-layered character, smashed by conformism”. Scriptwriter Marin Damyanov was awarded for the originality of Corpse Collector. Kamen Kalev’s won Best director with his French/Belgian/Bulgarian Face Down.

All the features films in the competition were supported by the Bulgarian National Film Center. The National Jury consisted of president Stephan Komandarev along with Antonia Kovacheva, Kiran Kolarov, Krasimir Andonov and Yanina Kasheva.
