This website serves as the memory of a collaborative work. I associate to it my teams, my close collaborators, but also my productor and director friends…

SOFILM was one of the first Bulgarian independant film production companies. We produced, co-produced* and welcomed more than 40 French film productions.

We were an opportunity, a qualified and conclusive alternative. This mission meant a lot to me.
*(with Peter Popzlatev, we initiated the first Franco-Bulgarian co-productions)

Within my foundation, I could also organize panoramas of the Bulgarian cinema in Paris, contemporary art exhibitions in Sofia and had several institutions to come such as ARTE, LE FRESNOY, SUNNY SIDE and ART PRESS.

Working with Charles Tesson allowed me to program and host the CLASSE LIBRE, a cultural rendez-vous for moviegoers in Sofia.

This was a scene of critical and aesthetic thinking where more than 80 figures went to show, comment and share their passion for the cinema, in its whole diversity.

Thanks to all of you,

Patrick Sandrin
