    Elena Rapondzhieva and Dimitar Petrov have returned home after 5 years of work and study abroad to cook up a cartoon fantasy series that digs deep into the Bulgarian folklore and traditions. The evil spirits, the blue-haired action heroine and the two fearless brothers in the Golden Apple are as good as the characters from some Western- production 'cast'. Clearly, Dimitar's work on the second season of The Amazing World of Gamball has been a positive influence.

    They communicate in images rather than words. They are animators with a degree from the Rotterdam Academy and their names are Vessela Dancheva and Ivan Bogdanov but for five years now we've been calling them Compote Collective - a group of talents that the two of them bring together in a team. Their love for the visual language equals the love they have for each other. Dzhovani and Veseto (as their friends like to call them) have been together as a family for many years, and their 8-year-old son and the 4-year-old dog Enjoy take active part in the animation process. The first has a comic strip of his own and the second is always helpful with his imposing presence. We meet the entire family to talk about their new animation projects, the hard work behind them and the family's plans for the Christmas holidays.

    His path is clear. He starts from Nessebar, breezes through the art school in Kazanlak and goes to NATFIZ, believing that one day the cinemas will screen his movies. Nedelcho Bogdanov just made this dream come true. Balgar The Movie is the big brother of his web series under the same name that already has three seasons. The series and respectively the movie are genuinely funny, lacking the crude Balkan humor, but rather using fine irony and lots of pop culture references. It is worth it.

    In additioin to his talent, he also has a strong character. He is a rebel but he doesn't yell and instead of fussing, he acts. He always has a plan B. It seems that Ovanes Torosyan has found the right formula.

    Victoria - the first Bulgarian title in the feature competition program of the Sundance Film Festival, has its own screen life with exclusive pre-premieres at Dom na Kinoto these days. We decided that now is the right time to talk with director Maya Vitkova for the present and future of this so intimately about her project in the light of the raging debate on the choice of the film, which will represent Bulgaria in running for foreign language Oscar 2015. From this topic we jumped straight to Michael Palin and horror movies.

    We meet the naturally charming and ever so charismatic Elena Petrova just a week before the permier screenings of the very first Bulgarian psycho-thriller Roseville (in which she has a special, major part). And somehow in hour somewhat long conversation we easily manage to jump from topic to topic - from kids to extraterrestrials and from the rules of the thriller genre to just how funny Kalin Vrachanski's jokes are.

    The one who controls the media, controls the mind. The war between media and power - this is the main subject of The 4th Power  (new series, you can watch it every Sunday at 20:45 on National TV). One of the characters - a young, beautiful and very bold journalist, is played by Mila Parusheva, who is actually not a real actress. But she is perfect for the role!

    We meet the devastatingly charming Silvia Petkova mere hours after her return from a 22 day long stroll along the wildest of beaches on Bulgaria's northern seaside. Although a bit sad about the fading summer days and the need to be back in the city, Silvia talks about the popular play Tiramisu, cinema, Bulgarian TV series Revolution Z and her upcoming appearance at the Fairytales PO Box on September 14th at One More Kino.
