"In these turbulent for Bulgaria and Bulgarian tourism times you need to be invested with a lot of effort, faith and spirit to do something as nice and meaningful as a tourism film festival.

To travel across continents and visit ravishing places, to encounter fascinating traditions and experience unbeknown emotions, to travel back in time and wander throughout history, and to do all of the above while you are comfortable in your seat at the screenings in the old capital – this is the Festival.

Hereunder I express my deepest respect to the people organizing the event, those who create this genuine magic. On behalf of the Bulgarian tour operators – the members of ABTTA, I wish all guests and contest participants all the best of luck, let's experience unforgettable moments on the East Coast of Europe."
